“Moonlight” Five Golden Globes
Here’s a Golden Globe update on the LGBT film, Moonlight, and other LGBT films.
The 2017 Golden Globe Awards will not feature nearly as many LGBTQ nominees as last year, but those who were nominated are up for the biggest prizes of the year. And more than a few movies and television shows featuring positive representation of the community are among the nominees.
With six nominations, the gay-themed coming of age drama “Moonlight” was narrowly edged out by the Hollywood love letter “La La Land,” which took home seven nominations, as announced Monday morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in Los Angeles.
There’s more here. Moonlight got 5 nominations. I’m dying to see this one.
Tom Of Finland Biopic Trailer
I’ve been posting about Tom of Finland as it relates to gay culture for a long time. It was a huge art form for me growing up. You can check that out here. It’s a general link to multiple posts I’ve done.
The full trailer for Tom of Finland has just been released. The biopic explores the life of Touko Laaksonen, a.k.a Tom of Finland, a.k.a. the king of homoeroticism, whose unapologetic drawings shattered taboos and helped bring gay male eroticism and leather fetish culture into the mainstream.
You can check that out here. I’m dying to see this one, too.
Preacher Says Santa’s Not Real
This preacher who told kids that Santa’s not real is also allegedly anti-gay.
Fortunately, one such preacher rose to the occasion this weekend by making a special appearance at a Texas shopping mall, where he took to telling misty-eyed children that Santa Claus is a big fat lie.
In the video, Pastor David Grisham casually terrorizes parents and children, saying, “I want to tell you today that there is no such thing as Santa Claus. Santa Claus does not exist.”
You can check that out here, with the video.
I think this is a good discussion for free speech. The government can’t arrest him for saying what he said, but the rest of us can kick his ass right out the door because we don’t want to listen to it.
