Vermont: State of Marriage
I received an e-mail from Jeff Kaufman at Floating World Pictures in LA about the documentary I was in titled, State of Marriage. The main focus of this film for me is how hard Vermont Supreme Court Justice, Beth Robinson, worked all these years for equality. It was a huge honor for us when Justice Robinson performed our marriage ceremony in 2014, in Vermont. Being in the documentary was exciting, but the honor came from Beth Robinson.
From my inbox:
Here is news about THE STATE OF MARRIAGE. There will also be a screening in Montpelier on Feb. 23 (details to come).
THANK YOU for being part of this film . . . and this special experience.
ALL BEST – Jeff and Marcia
Charlie Carver Comes Out
Actor, Charlie Carver, who has a long list of popular credits to his name recently announced he’s gay and he posted a long message about it on instagram.
Charlie Carver, an actor whose work, often alongside with his twin Max, includes Desperate Housewives, Teen Wolf, The Leftovers and I Am Michael, has come out as a gay man by posting a touching five-part essay on his Instagram account. Carver, who played a young gay man who had a torrid threesome with James Franco and Zachary Quinto in last year’s biopic I Am Michael, hadn’t spoken publicly about his sexual orientation until now. In the messages posted on Instagram, the 27-year-old performer says he was inspired to come out after seeing a sign that read “Be who you needed when you were younger.”
Here’s part of it.
“I am gay”. I said them to myself at first, to see how they felt. They rang true, and I hated myself for them. I was twelve. It would take me a few years before I could repeat them to anyone else, in the meantime turning the phrase over and over in my mouth until I felt comfortable and sure enough to let the words pour out again, this time to my family…
And that’s how it usually goes. In other words, it’s never easy for anyone.
Tom Brady’s Used Undies
I have to admit I never got this…the whole interest in used underwear.
A pair of plain white boxers, along with a plain white undershirt, worn by Brady during his walk-on cameo appearance in the film Ted 2 are currently up for auction. But before you get too excited, fellas, the under garments have been laundered.
Still interested? Read on.
Goldin Auctions is brokering the sale on its website, with bidding starting at $2,500.
There’s more here.
At least his underwear has been laundered. I hate to think of the alternative. It’s nice to see I’m not the only one who doesn’t get it, because there are comments that seem to agree with me.
Unmentionable: The Men Who Loved On the Titanic
I have to admit that I’ve always liked this book for personal reasons. Even though it’s never had the sales other books had, it’s received good reviews and I’m constantly getting contacted about it through e-mail and social media. It’s sort of a historical transgender, gender-bending story about what it might have been like on the Titanic for men who loved each other. I can’t call it a transgender story of today, however, I think it’s okay to refer to it as transgender, as it might have been back in the Edwardian era. You have to remember the word transgender didn’t even exist and the word gay had a completely different definition. Check it out on Amazon and see the reviews. It’s hard to call it a romance because, after all, it’s the Titanic and we know how that ended, but it is a romantic drama.
