But it's quite understandable in his case as when she remarried he gained hottie Josh Brolin as a step-brother. Now he and his mother have made music together, but then that was bound to happen one day as his Ma is the singing superstar/diva Barbra Striesand. Jason Gould, actor, director, producer, writer and singer and son of Elliot Gould has recorded the Irving Berlin standard How Deep Is The Ocean as a Duet with Babs for her new album ‘Partners’ …. And its actually very good. Take a listen …


P.S. Could this be a new trend … and maybe Cher and Chaz Bono are next?

In the opening scenes of this historical drama we see a distinguished looking German gentleman accosting a travelling family of five to ask if he may follow behind them as he is unsure about driving alone on the desolate dirt roads in the middle of the vast plains of Patagonia.

In Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn's take on John le Carré's spy thriller we are very much aware of who 'the most wanted man' is, but like Gunther Bachmann, a German Intelligence Officer in Hamburg, we never know why he has earned this title.

At The Gay UK we are all for giving to charity as much as the next man, but now that every major (and too many minor) celebrities are jumping on this latest bandwagon, we think maybe enough is enough.

We hate to pour cold water on anybody’s good ideas, but think perhaps that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has got a little out of control. We know we are not alone on this and were so happy to watch this Broadcast on the WIN TV Channel in Australia when reporter Lincoln Humphries articulated our feelings so perfectly.



Handsome Lincoln explains in some detail about the many ways that we can all help people in need without using up water, which is still a precious commodity in many parts of the world. He lists many ways that we can all give effectively and quietly without all the glare of publicity. We would encourage you to watch his wee piece to the very end, as we completely endorse his ideas of what we all should really be using ice cubes for.


But just before we say goodbye to this worthy charity jape that has got out of hand, we would like to share just one more participant’s very worthy effort.




Steve Grand the rather sensational gay singing cowboy who’s You Tube All American Boy went viral last year has just done his Ice Bucket Challenge NAKED! I mean, it would be impolite not to support him after he bared his all just for us … ooops, we mean for Charity.

I’M A PORNSTAR Review

Filmmaker Charlie David's light-hearted rambling review of the burgeoning gay pornography industry could never be mistaken as a serious piece of investigative journalism. After speedily racing through the whole history of the business from its birth in the 1930's up to present day, the documentary focuses on four of the most successful performers today. They have probably earned the accolade of 'star' but then again this grossly overused title has now been claimed by everyone who has ever had a bit part in a movie or video. And there are a lot of them. In our internet based culture there now an estimated 370 million porn websites online contributing the bulk of a $13 billion business worldwide!

All of David's subjects are very affable men and happy enough to candidly share their views on controversial topics such as barebacking, HIV, social stigma, fetishes and escorting. The whole question of gay-for-pay was also discussed by them and not always in a positive manner. Whilst Colby Jansen's attitude regarding his evolving sexuality was refreshingly honest, Johnny Rapid's constant reminders of not only how straight he was ('When I am being f..ked by a guy, I keep thinking of my girlfriend just so that I can remain erect') became very tiresome.


And with interviews with Ryan R a leading director (and a heterosexual) who claimed as others did that he did gay instead of straight porn because it was financially more lucrative, David never pushed him or anyone else further on this issue. The fact that there are seemingly so many straight men either side of the camera seems to indicate that as a community we still haven't dispensed with all our internalised homophobia.




The most likable, and by far the most level-headed of the pornstars featured, was the young-looking 29 years old Canadian Brent Everett. He's not only an out proud gay man, but a happily married one who also has the full support of his parents for his chosen line of work. Everett, quite a charmer, is very effusive about his very successful career and doesn't proffer any hint of regret or become an apologist for his roles like so many of his peers. He revels in the fact that it his work is fun and that he is clearly committed to make it as entertaining and sexy as possible for his legions of fans.


And that was probably David's motives in making this titillating movie with its explicit scenes of sex and a seemingly endless parade of erect penises that often distract you from some of his narration. He also succeeds in making the industry look like a well-run corporate type business far removed from its old sleazy and seedy back-street image. It's an enjoyable and diverting lively romp that will fascinate and amuse anybody with the slightest interest in the subject i.e. all gay men!
