Sir John Gielgud was one of the great actors of modern times, but did you know he wrote a gay porn script?
The story is that, in the 1960's, the necessarily closeted Gielgud was a huge fan of the short erotic films of Peter De Rome, who was recently the subject of the documentary, Peter de Rome, the Grandfather of Gay Porn.
According to the producer of the documentary, David McGillivray, Gielgud "was so impressed with Peter’s work – which of course was porn – that he wrote Peter a screenplay. Nobody knows anything about this script, it’s not in the John Gielgud letters, it’s not mentioned in the biographies, it’s an unknown script."
Gielgud had a thing for pants; he loved corduroy and leather, according to McGillivray, so he wrote Trouser Bar, a film set in a menswear shop. Kristen Bjorn is supposed to be directing.
Gielgud never officially came out of the closet, though he was busted for cruising a London public toilet in 1953. He never wrote any other scripts, so it will be most interesting to see how Trouser Bar turns out - if it actually sees the light of day.

Bearforce 1 is hoping this song will be chosen to be Switzerland's official entry at Eurovision 2015. (After all, if a bearded drag queen can win this year's Eurovision, then four dancing bears have a good shot at taking it next year!)

Queer performer Perfume Genius is taking Eminem with him on his current tour. That is, he's selling shirts with Eminem's face on them. And to make a point, it's Eminem - or Feminem - in drag.
He tweeted: "I am selling t-shirts that feature an emasculated Eminem on this tour. Just a fuckin reminder."
And: "Pretty sure I could destroy him with Just a Look, someone put us in a room together and watch Eminem slowly wither from my witch glance."
Eminem, who has claimed he supports gay rights, continues to drop anti-gay slurs in his raps. His most recent freestyle rap, to support his upcoming release, uses the word "dyke" repeatedly and refers to Anderson Cooper taking a "tube up his pooper."

David Bowie is back with a new single. It's called “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime).” We think it'll take a special kind of listener (maybe a deaf one) to warm up to it. Just saying.
Anyway, Bowie is interesting in terms of his sexuality. He admitted to being bisexual way back in a 1976 interview with Playboy, He said: "It's true—I am a bisexual. But I can't deny that I've used that fact very well. I suppose it's the best thing that ever happened to me."
However, aside from his rumored relationship with Mick Jagger, his many sexual conquests have been with women. And in a 1983 interview with Rolling Stone, Bowie changed his tune and declared, "I was always a closet heterosexual." His earlier bisexuality was, he explained, "a compulsion to flout moral codes than a real biological and psychological state of being."
Is he? Isn't he? We guess it ultimately doesn't matter since none of us will be bedding the pop star any time soon.

Conchita Wurst is an Austrian singer who came to international attention after winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark with the song "Rise Like a Phoenix." Because of her win, Russian politicians went ballistic and threatened to pull out of future Eurovision contests.
This is her latest single (lyrics only). We think it's quite pretty.

Romas Zabarauskas has found an interesting way to promote his new Kickstarter campaign. The openly gay Lithuanian filmmaker is offering nude selfies to people who help fund his new film project.
The project, titled You Can't Escape Lithuania, will shine light on the current experiences of gays and lesbians in Zabarauskas' home country. "Lithuania is a tiny Eastern European country with approximately 3 million inhabitants," he said "It’s a country of spectacular landscapes, a rapidly growing economy, and people who dream big. The bad news is that our politicians are increasingly pushing a homophobic agenda. Since 2010, a controversial Protection of Minors law, similar to Russia’s anti-gay legislation, has been in force."
The movie is fictional, though loosely based on the filmmaker's life. Romas helps a good friend, an actress, Indre, escape Lithuania after she murders her mother and steals her money. Romas also takes his hot Mexican boyfriend Carlos along for the ride.
On the road, Romas gives Indre an ultimatum: if she doesn’t agree to perform in one last experimental film, he will turn her over to the police. Nope, doesn't sound artsy-fartsy at all.
He hopes his film, and the nude selfie campaign he's using to fund it, will make people think.
"The provocative campaign and the film will challenge the Lithuanian society and will bring up the important political context in crazy artistic ways," he explained.
