Obama: The First Gay President


It was the spring of 2007, back when Barack Obama’s bid for the presidency seemed quixotic at best. I’d seen Obama speak to a crowd and was impressed but wanted to see if what I’d seen from afar held up under closer scrutiny. So I asked to attend a private fundraiser in a tony apartment in Georgetown. I promised not to write anything. I just wanted to see the man up close and get a better sense of him and his character. At one point in the question-and-answer session, a woman looked him square in the eyes with what can only be called maternal grit. “My son is gay,” she said, and the room went suddenly quiet. “I don’t understand why you don’t support his right to marry the person he loves. It’s so disappointing to me.” Obama, without losing eye contact for a second, told her: “I want full equality for your son - all the rights and benefits that marriage brings. I really do. But the word ‘marriage’ stirs up so much religious feeling. I think civil unions are the way to go. As long as they are equal.”

My heart sank. Was this obviously humane African-American actually advocating a “separate but equal” solution - a form of marital segregation like the one that made his own parents’ marriage a felony in many states when he was born? The sudden equivocation made no sense - except as pure political calculation. And yet it also felt strained, as if he knew it didn’t quite fit. He wanted equality but not marriage - but you cannot have one without the other. On this issue, Obama’s excruciating nonposition was essentially “Yes we can’t.”

And yet somehow, simply by the way he answered that mother’s question, I didn’t believe it. I thought he was struggling between political calculation and his core belief in civil rights. And it was then that I realized he was both: a cold, steely, ruthless, calculating politician who nonetheless wanted to do the right thing in the end.

Last week he did it — in a move whose consequences are simply impossible to judge.

from the article said...

He was a black kid brought up by white grandparents and a white single mother in Hawaii and Indonesia, where his color really made no difference. He discovered his otherness when reading an old issue of Life magazine, which had a feature on African-Americans who had undergone an irreversible bleaching treatment to make them look white—because they believed being white was the only way to be happy.

Barack Obama had to come out of a different closet. He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family. The America he grew up in had no space for a boy like him: black yet enveloped by loving whiteness, estranged from a father he longed for (another common gay experience), hurtling between being a Barry and a Barack, needing an American racial identity as he grew older but chafing also against it and over-embracing it at times.

This is the gay experience: the discovery in adulthood of a community not like your own home and the struggle to belong in both places, without displacement, without alienation. It is easier today than ever. But it is never truly without emotional scar tissue. Obama learned to be black the way gays learn to be gay.

Did you know that Jake Gyllenhaal is in Toronto? He’ll be here to work on Denis Villeneuve’s film An Enemy from May 22 to July 13, but he arrived earlier than his expected call time and has already been spotted across the city. Gyllenhaal was out eating at Hiro Sushi in the St. Lawrence Market area last night, and just the sight of him is sending girls into a frenzy (okay, so far we can count one girl, but still). There’s also a rumour that Gyllenhaal will be staying at Toronto’s Thompson Hotel. We’ll be sure to keep a lookout for him taking his morning run.

But before jetting off – where he will be until July - Gyllenhaal spent time with his mother Naomi Foner in New York City.

The screen star and his parent were trying to go incognito as they caught a cab with a friend (K'naan) in the Big Apple’s Bleecker Street.

He dressed casually in a navy blue T-shirt and green trousers with grey trainers, covering his eyes up with reflective sunglasses.

With his mother also donning shades, he led the way for them to hop into a yellow taxi.

Demi Moore Will Mother Elizabeth Olsen In Very Good Girls


Although the last movie she played a mom in BOMBED at the box office, Demi Moore has taken on another paternal role in Very Good Girls.

She will play Elizabeth Olsen's mother in a flick about two girls trying to get banged lose their v-card the summer after high school graduation. When Dakota Fanning falls for the same guy as Olsen, however, their friendship is tested for the first time.

All three are incredible actresses, so this already has the potential to be a very good coming-of-age film.

Fun fact: Naomi Foner, the movie's writer and director, is Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal's mom! They aren't starring in it, as far as we know, but Maggie's husband Peter Sarsgaard is.

We hope this movie is very good, girls (and guy)!

From the notices posted around the condo complex alerting residents they won't be able to park in certain areas on XX date. Those posted notices always list the name of the film.

Jim Parsons quietly came out of the closet Wednesday.

The New York Times revealed that the “The Big Bang Theory” star is gay and in a long-term relationship.

Parsons, who is set to play the starring role of Elwood P. Dowd in Broadway’s “Harvey” this summer, isn’t directly quoted in the interview and doesn’t divulge any other details about his personal life or the identity of his partner.

In last year’s production of “The Normal Heart” on Broadway, Parsons played a young gay activist.

“‘The Normal Heart’ resonated with him on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said,” reporter Patrick Healy writes.

The confirmation of Parson’s sexuality may not come as a surprise to some people.

When Parson's won the 2010 Emmy for lead actor in a comedy series, he thanked his rumored partner Todd Spiewak during his acceptance speech.
