Title File 016
Transcript Out in the arts g f My intent for ■j Sundance was to focus on unheard voices. ['Longtime Companion'] proved to the industry that there was a market for gay and lesbian films and that they should be / taken seriously." —Robert Redford, Sundance Film Festival founder, January "The four different lines represent different male body fluids. The red ones are blood, the yellow are urine, the blue is the sweat of the brow, a metaphorical notion of sweat, and the white ones... are semen. It's a reference to Onanism—you know, 'spilling the seed.' That's why they're on the floor." —Artist Michael Retry explaining his "Fluid Man" during a showing in Houston, January "I've not missed anything by not being in the closet. I can't imagine having to keep my life in the closet. Life's too short, and there are too many wonderful things to experience along the way— whether you're gay or straight." —Glenn San Marco, "Les Miserables" cast member, January "Cher and Diana Ross and David Bowie were my role models." —RuPaul, April I tend to shoot for the stars in what I want. With music and fashion and stuff like that, that's pretty feasible. But in terms of love and relationships, you're most often disappointed if you keep such high standards, which I believe a lot of gay people do. Growing up in the '80s, the whole AIDS freak-out—you did put a lover on a pedestal, because they ^ were going to save your life. Or they were going to kill you. It's like a life-or- death situation." —Songwriter and recording star Rufus Wainwright, March "I get a lot of letters from gay fans, and I do a lot of interviews with gay publications. They always tell me that I'm a hero to them, which I consider an honor... I always take it as a compliment when gay guys hit on me—which happens fairly often." —Punk rocker and poet Henry Rollins, February "People think because [the Queerstock tour] is called 'queer'that it is this raging political music... but 'queer' is a new word and it's a great word, because it encompasses everything—it's not just black and white, gay or lesbian, it in includes the gray areas." —Queerstock organizer Doha Roberts, March "After reading the script, I didn't think twice about the sexuality of Adam... From the moment I finished reading the script, I just knew it was a story I wanted to be a part of telling." —Scoff Wolf on "Adam," the closeted gay character he plap in "Go," April "... I've never regretted anything I've said, even the stuff about being a male prostitute. I'm not ashamed of it. It was necessary for me at that time in my life. I was going for a career in acting, but I wasn't completely successful. So, I year in review became a male escort." —Rupert Everett, June "I like to think that if I were gay I would be out, Rupert Everett-style." —Ben Affleck, September "I'm queer and I'm proud but I'm also mentally ill—so don't expect me to be a role model. I must be gayly incorrect. I'm perhaps the only gay man who has never been to the baths or the gym—I've done much worse. But certainly I can't be your leader." —John Wafers, September "When you look at it all, realistically, gay roles only make up two percent of prime time's lead characters. That's really not a good number... It's very disappointing." —Scoff Seomin, GLAAD Entertainment Media Director, on the unprecedented 28 gay, lesbian or transgender characters in the current 7V line-up, September Strange bedfellows "The existence of an extreme left wing as the representation of gay people prevented me from coming out... The establishment of these left-wing elites actually impedes the >• Continued on Page 18 "So many women, particularly African- American women, are oftentimes left unsatisfied after sexual encounters. Millions of women have yet to explore their full sexual curiosity. Women need to take time to find out what they want in a sexual relationship." —Houston poet Simone Cunningham, December
