I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share?

Gollum reads Donald Trump tweets

Andy Serkis, Trump Tweets

Andy Serkis is an English actor and director probably best known as the voice of Gollum, a fictional character from The Lord of the Rings movies. Last week he happened to be on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when the host, Stephen Colbert, asked if he would read one of Donald Trump’s recent tweets.

This could make for a great political commercial next fall. It is both hilarious and frightening. If you missed it, check out this 90-second clip.

InstagramThis week on Instagram I’m featuring someone who I’ve never met in person but who I’ve carried on conversations with using Twitter.

Onerebeldeveil has a great sense of humor and he uses his IG account to post a combination of what I’ll refer to as man candy photos and humorous pictures. A great example of the latter posts is the post I shared below.

Blade Runner 2049

Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Science FictionOne of Sergio’s favorite movies is the 1982 science fiction thriller Blade Runner. This October (thirty-five years later) Blade Runner 2049 will come to movie theaters. The new movie will include Harrison Ford who starred in the original film as well as Ryan Gosling and a host of other stars.

Below is a new movie trailer that was released yesterday on YouTube:Blade Runner 2049: Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Will you go see Blade Runner 2049?

Frontrunners

Frontrunners Boston visiting RI this past Fall

Gareth Johnson is a writer who I read regularly via Medium. Earlier this month he had an interesting article on Frontrunners, the LGBT running club that was inspired by the novel, The Front Runner, first published in 1974 and would go on to sell more than 10 million copies. The book is noted for being the first contemporary gay novel to achieve mainstream commercial and critical success.Patricia Nell WarrenEven more impressive than the book’s critical and commercial success is how it served as an inspiration to establish gay running clubs, initially in San Francisco and Los Angeles, but then through out the U.S., North America and eventually the world. I didn’t count but there are more than 50 International chapters and easily as many chapters here in the United States.

Aside from how inspiring the story is (one I didn’t know until I read Gareth’s article on Medium), I wanted to give the Boston chapter a shout out. Often I hear people lament how difficult it is to meet up and connect with people. This club meets regularly and has a social element following their Saturday runs which gives you the chance to get to meet and connect with others. And one needn’t be some amazing runner to keep up. Different distances are available for you to choose what is best for you. For more information about Boston’s Frontrunners’ Chapter visit the following links.
