The Gay Agenda


By Bill Chenevert

FLICK: We know you're probably suffering from a mild case of Sex and the City: The Movie fatigue, but in the slim chance that you've forgotten, the gayest chick flick of the summer (above) arrives in theaters May 30. Suggestion: Rather than opt for that tired "I'm a [Insert Sex and the City Character]" t-shirt idea, take a less expected route and stamp your favorite ribald quote from the series on a worn-in, fitted American Apparel top. Our pick (from prudish Charlotte in the show's first season): "Men Don't Marry the Up the Butt Girl. Whoever Heard of Mrs. Up the Butt?" For more on Sex read our interview with Sarah Jessica Parker and the film's director, Michael Patrick King, in the latest issue of Out. Then get yourself jazzed by checking out SJP, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon reprising their roles as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda in the trailer.

STAGE: Fact: Montgomery Clift was gorgeous. Hot, brooding, talented, working-class, and queer (!), this man was one of the sexiest movie stars of all time; Brando and Dean were dwarfed in his presence. He cavorted with Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe, the latter famously saying he was the "only person I know who is in worse shape than I am." (After a near-fatal car accident, Monty slowly killed himself with addictions.) Rediscover him in The Rarest of Birds: The Life and Works of Montgomery Clift, John Lisbon Wood's one-man play (performed by Omar Prince), which opens at the Wings Theatre in New York City on June 1. Watch an amazing clip of Clift in A Place in the Sun here, then get your tickets to the show here.
