It was this movie that shot Pitt to fame, and for good reason: His chiseled six- or is it eight- pack made plenty of appearances, plus there was that sex scene with Geena Davis. More than 25 years later, it still holds up. You have to work hard. It sucks.
Queer travel bookazine Elska is celebrating its two year birthday this month! So far, 12 issues of the publication have been released, each featuring evocative photography of men in a different city around the world. From Providence, USA to Reykjavik, Iceland to Berlin, Germany, all men — regardless of their size, shape, race or sexuality — are invited to take part in the shoots. However, a large proportion of the guys featured end up being queer. Here are 11 striking portraits from the issues so far, with a quote from Elska editor Liam Campbell elaborating on the experience of shooting in the city in question…. I assumed that because Turkey is a Muslim country that it would be conservative. I thought it would be near-impossible to find guys willing to participate in a mainly gay publication, let alone people who might do nude shoots. But I was so wrong.
Meet The Naked Professor, an Instagram account and blog dedicated to encouraging people - and men in particular - to become more connected to themselves, free their minds, reveal their true selves and be proud of who they are. And how is this done? Why, by posting naked pictures in, more often than not, places that are usually extremely busy. The man behind the naked body, however, is Ben, a year-old tech entrepreneur from south-west London. Whether gazing over the River Thames and the Houses of Parliament or walking along rocky cliffs, Ben is fully naked in nearly all his photos. Ben suffers from a condition called delayed ejaculation, which essentially means he can't orgasm. A qualified life coach, Ben started writing about living creatively and became more and more passionate about sharing his message. However, he knew he needed a way to stand out from the crowd.
P rivacy is a privilege. It is rarely enjoyed by women or transgender men and women, queer people or people of color. When you are an Other, you are always in danger of having your body or some other intimate part of yourself exposed in one way or another. A group of teenagers driving by as a person of color walks on a sidewalk shout racial slurs, interrupting their quiet. For most people, privacy is little more than an illusion, one we create so we can feel less vulnerable as we move through the world, so we can believe some parts of ourselves are sacred and free from uninvited scrutiny. The further away you are from living as a white, heterosexual, middle-class man, the less privacy you enjoy — the more likely your illusions of privacy will be shattered when you least expect it. For celebrities, privacy is utterly nonexistent.
