Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com I JUNE 10, 2005 17 There's a Fine Line Between Telling the Truth and Talking Trash Forever blue no more Erasure gets its due, actors describe gay kisses and 1 Word' hires directors You couldn't break the chains of love for ERASURE Tuesday, June 7, during the band's sold out show at D.C.'s 9:30 club. The capacity crowd (filled with equal parts women and gay men) was definitely feeling the music and even Capital Pride organizers showed their gratitude by giving the gay-straight electronic duo its first ever Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts. "Erasure has been around for many, many years. A lot of us came out to Erasure," said Robert York, director of Pride, who presented the award onstage before the band started its encore. "They're one of those groups that crosses boundaries and educates people." The band received the Gay Pride honor even though only singer ANDY BELL is gay. "What straight man could you get to wear gold lame?" York joked about straight musician VINCE CLARK, the other half of the group, who was wearing a tuxedo made out of the flamboyant fabric. "How secure can you really be?" Bell graciously accepted the award and said, "Thank you," along with something else that was drowned out by the screaming crowd. Then he launched into a song no one knew. (Must have been from the new album.) During the performance, the duo played all their big hits and Bell, who disclosed his HIV-positive status in December, looked and sounded as good as ever, dancing about the stage in a number of glittering outfits (including just a pair of diamond-studded briefs). The real highlight of the evening came from a pair of covers, a slowed- down version of BLONDIE's "Rapture," with Clark doing the rap, and Bell's solo, an a cappella version of "Ave Maria." Kiss and tell Two young actors, both with careers on the rise, have two different reactions to their same-sex kisses onscreen. JESSE BRADFORD, the wholesome- looking stud from "Swimfan" and "Bring It On," says he turned down a chance to play a gay character in the film "Rules of Attraction" and always wondered if he turned down the part because the character was gay. Well, he felt better about himself after accepting a gay role in the upcoming movie "Heights." until it came time Jesse Bradford Brittany Murphy Gay-straight duo Andy Bell (left) and Vince Clark, better known as Erasure, received a Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts as part of this year's Capital Pride Director's Awards at DCs 9:30 club this week. for his big same-sex kiss. "There are certain risks involved," he told the New York Daily News gossip columnist Lloyd Grove. "But it was one of the most heterosexual reaffirming moments of my life. Like, 'Oh, that's why I don't like this. That's why I always figured I wouldn't like this.' Now I know. Now I know for sure." Good for you, Mr. Bradford. Meanwhile, BRITTANY MUR PHY tells the British edition of men's magazine Maxim that her favorite cinematic smooches were with women. "I will admit that my most memorable onscreen kiss was with REESE WITH- ERSPOON in 'Freeway,' just because we were laughing so much," she says about her role in the 1996 independent movie. "And my longest was with Joanne Vannicola for this [2000 television] movie called 'Common Ground."' Casting couch Showtime's lesbian drama "THE L WORD," has signed up a number of prominent directors to film episodes for its impending, but still unscheduled, third season. Those behind the camera in the third season will include: lesbian director Angela Robinson of "D.E.B.S." and soon- to-be-released "Herbie: Fully Loaded" fame, "The Laramie Project" creator Moises Kaufman, Rose Troche of "Go Fish" fame, and "Boys Don't Cry" director Kimberly Pierce.
