Jeremy Brandrick was a fan and cast favorite on Season 12 of Project Runway with his quick wit, kind nature, sass, talent, and classic style. When the career designer was eliminated in episode nine, the outcry from fans was enormous. Post-PR, Brandwick is working on a new menswear line and living in Chelsea with his partner and two small children. GTSA caught up with Brandrick at his home in Chelsea to talk fashion, reality TV, and life after Project Runway.
In Goldenrod and Tomorrow Always Comes, Avery Paul targets a new corner of the market with protagonist Finn Greystroke, a gay James Bond if you will. I’ve always been a fan of the Bond franchise and of the iconic Ian Fleming novels from which they stemmed. I’m anxiously awaiting the next installment with the sexy Daniel Craig. That alone is what eventually made me crack and sit down to read these after my last review, but I was actually pleasantly surprised after finishing reading both of them.

The date of the relaunch is unknown.
The video has dropped for Shakira and Rihanna’s duet, “Can’t Remember to Forget You.” The video is relatively simple. In it, Rihanna and Shakira, both scantily clad, hang out in a mansion and lounge by the pool at night. Oh, and there’s a lot of groping going on.

As a gay viewer watching a gay television show, there’s a strange feeling that you should like the material even if it’s “just okay”. When you consider the importance of shows like Queer as Folk and The L Word, it has little to do with the quality of the programs and more with the content. You accept that these shows are great because you feel the need to appreciate their existence in a sea of heterosexual stories. This seems to also be the case for HBO’s Looking.
This sexy Orthodox Calendar features naughty pictures of gay men with religious imagery and was released by a group of Eastern Orthodox Christians in protest of Russia’s anti-gay laws.

The only noticeable trend on last night’s awards show was the tendency to hand awards out to straight actors who were nominated for playing gay characters.

Happy holidays, readers, or, as I call it, happy week-off-to-prep-for-Oscar-season.

When I first heard that Nicole Fox, winner of America’s Next Top Model:
Special Olympics Petite Cycle, was starring in a movie as a lesbian, I was psyched at the marriage of two of my favorite things. TyTyBaby Productions and gay media, I’m a whore for you both. I would have watched this movie for either one of these things, so I had high hopes for some sort of “sum greater than the parts” magic. I’m sad to report that this was not the case.
You may know Maria Bello as the brazen Lil from Coyote Ugly, the ill-fated ex-wife of Johnny Depp in Secret Window, or the unfortunate spouse of Kevin James in the Grown Ups films. However you know her, there’s something else she’d like you to know – she’s also in a lesbian relationship.
The Japanese aren’t the only ones who like orgasms. That’s all I can think when I watch a recent video that’s been circulating the Internet. The clip is of a gay man attempting to make a straight porn star blow a load before the clock runs out on a Japanese game show called Orgasm Wars.
No, I’m not referring to some promising up and coming politician. Sorry to disappoint, but Hillary is probably the closest you’ll get to a lesbian in the next presidential race. And no, I’m not talking about those scandalous gay rumors surrounding Abe Lincoln. Let’s go one stop further back in time on the presidential subway train.
I have a big lesbian crush on you, Dusty Springfield. And not just because you’re a pretty lady with a sexy voice.
