Snikt-ing in the '70s
It's no longer shameful for a major celebrity to be involved with a video game. Ellen Page appeared at the Tribeca Film Festival the other night to show 35 minutes of footage from Beyond: Two Souls, the PlayStation 3 epic she stars in, and it was all upfront and proud. A video game was in a film ... More >>

You'll never guess who I saw on my latest outing.
Christian metal's finest (and yellow-and-blackest) foot-soldiers re-enlist
Actually, celebs came out all on their own in '08--they didn't even have to be dragged out, kicking and screaming, like they usually do. That saved me a lot of pulling, yanking, and washing off of blood, so thanks, gays! Among the highlights of the year in celebrity closet busting:

Intellectualism goes soft in this more obvious than smart romantic comedy
My column this week goes into yet more sexuality talk about Juno star Ellen Page, so I’m bracing myself for the usual rounds of “How dare you?” and “Who cares?” In defense, let me once again get out the same rationales that I dug up when outing Methuselah and tell you why this sort of thin ...

It was a lovely moment on the Oscars—a/k/a the Gay Super Bowl—when No Country for Old Men producer Scott Rudin thanked his lover John Barlow (from the Broadway p.r. company Barlow Hartman) and referred to him as "honey." Well, honey, in the official transcript of the speech, that part was myster ... More >>
I mean, come on already, is she??? You know, Lebanese! She certainly dresses like a, you know, tomboy. And if you google "Ellen Page boyfriend," not a whole lot comes up, except for a link to some interview where she refers to an old beau.
