The State of Marriage Documentary
Here’s a reminder about documentary I was in titled, The State of Marriage. The screening will be this June, during the Provincetown International Film Festival.
The entire week is devoted to LGBT films, and The State of Marriage will be screened on June 18, 2015, at 2:30 pm, in the WellFleet Preservation Hall. For those who aren’t familiar with the location, Wellfleet is only a few miles from Provincetown and I think it’s going to be a lot easier to just pull up and park for this one. But more important, it’s a really great place…old Cape Cod at its best.
Here are some of the guests:
Notable guests of this year’s festival include: Alison Bagnall (director, FUNNY BUNNY); Bao Nguyen (director, LIVE FROM NEW YORK!); Barry Crimmins (subject, CALL ME LUCKY); Brendan Toller (director, DANNY SAYS); Christine Vachon (producer, NASTY BABY); David Thorpe (director, DO I SOUND GAY?); Gabrielle Demeestere (director, YOSEMITE); Hernando Bansuelo (director, THE DADDY); James Ponsoldt (director, THE END OF THE TOUR); Jeff Kaufman (director, THE STATE OF MARRIAGE); Jeffrey Schwarz (director, TAB HUNTER CONFIDENTIAL); Joe Murphy (editor, YOSEMITE); Joey Kuhn (director, THOSE PEOPLE); Josh Watson (producer, THE DADDY); Larry Kramer (LGBT activist and subject, LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER); Laura Heberton (producer, FUNNY BUNNY); Laurie Kahn-Leavitt (director, LOVE BETWEEN THE COVERS); Malcolm Ingram (director, OUT TO WIN); Marcia Ross (producer, THE STATE OF MARRIAGE); Michelle Boyaner (director, PACKED IN A TRUNK: THE LOST ART OF EDITH LAKE WILKINSON); Ron Davis (director HARRY & SNOWMAN); Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (directors, TEN THOUSAND SAINTS).
Bruce Jenner Will Cover Vanity Fair
I’m assuming this will be after Jenner’s full transition, and it will be the first photo shoot of him as a woman.
Longtime VF contributor and lenslady behind the controversial Kimye Vogue cover Annie Leibovitz will shoot Jenner for his first post-transition interview.
The 65-year-old Olympian and father of six previously sat down with Diane Sawyer, finally ending months of speculation by declaring, “for all intents and purposes, I am a woman.”
Jenner followed this with an E! special, Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce, during which he told stepdaughter Khloe Kardashian that he would be transitioning “probably in the spring.”
You can read the rest here. It’s hard to comment on something like this because I think it’s wonderful that there’s going to be a focus on a transgender person. I just wish they’d given Chaz Bono this kind of attention, too.
Barcode In London Shutters
Another gay club just shuttered its doors, and this one is in London, and no one saw it coming.
The club has not revealed any details about why it’s closing, but posted an event called ‘The Closing Party‘ on Facebook, and said: “Barcode closes its doors for the last time on Sunday morning May 31st.
“Join us […] in celebrating almost 10 years of great parties at ‘The Closing Party’ of Vauxhall’s favourite destination – Club Barcode!”
You can read the rest here. I find it interesting because as more and more gay men in general come out and start mixing into the mainstream more gay establishments seem to be closing down. It’s kind of sad in a way, but you can’t stop this kind of change.
Adam Lambert on American Idol Image
Like most of those who have been associated with American Idol, Adam Lambert is trying to shake off his American Idol Image.
As he prepares to release his third solo album, Lambert is hoping he can finally leave his Idol image behind.
‘I’m very happy about American Idol, but now I get to go beyond that,’ Lambert tells Frontiers Magazine. ‘I can come out as my own artist, and take my career where I want to.’
The rest is here. It’s not easy to do this, and I’m not totally sure it can be done. Once you’re pigeonholed in any artistic career they don’t like to let you out of the proverbial box, no matter how hard you try.
