Queen guitarist Brian May says he didn't know Freddie Mercury was gay: "No, I didn't know. I don't think even he was fully cognizant in the beginning. You're talking to someone who shared rooms with Fred on the first couple of tours, so I knew him pretty well. I knew a lot of his girlfriends and he certainly didn't have boyfriends, that's for sure. I think there was a slight suspicion, but it never occurred to me that he was gay."

PETA signs Tim Gunn: "The animal-rights group has enlisted none other than Tim Gunn to be its new spokesman in a video decrying using rabbit fur from China. China has no laws that prevent animal cruelty and, as such, you can imagine how things are on the animal farms. Gunn gives kudos to companies who have changed suppliers after viewing PETA's videos."
The resurrection of Tangier: "In the heady years after World War II, when Tangier was still in diplomatic limbo as an International Zone, its craggy shores became a gay-friendly haven for spies, globe-trotting businessmen, beatniks in exile and eccentric foreigners. This is where William S. Burroughs wrote the bulk of 'Naked Lunch,' which marks its 50th anniversary next year, and where Paul Bowles completed his haunting and existential cult classic, 'The Sheltering Sky.' As recently as the last decade, Tangier was still considered a down-on-its-luck town riddled with drugs and hustlers. But while sleazy dives, decayed buildings and dark alleys can still be found, a stylish new Tangier has emerged, fueled by royal investments and a thriving arts community."
