All Wet

We've seen Jake get wet before.




But this time he's taking the plunge.
 
 Jake is on  the cover of the December 2014 of W's Art issue—and completely under water! Photographer and video artist Bill Viola, who is known for using water in his work, snapped both Jake submerged in a tank in his Long Beach, Calif., studio.

It took a few tries first to get it picture perfect

 And a little bit  of work for Jake, he's definitely not the waterbaby that his Tall  Texan is.  It doesn't look like he's meant to be the merman of the family.

"I didn't expect the sensations—the water would go up my nose and out my eyes, which made it difficult to keep my eyes open,"

"There's a panic that sets in, because you're running out of breath," he continued. "And even though you can hear [people] talking, telling you to move your arm or open your eyes, mostly you're in your own head. You feel very alone."


Despite the less than serene experience, Jake looks perfectly at peace on the cover.

Stars and No Holds Bar

A couple of weeks ago OMG posted about  Jake sitting down with this season's indie stars in the running for award season to talk about making movies in Hollywood and making indies. 

Below is the 72-minute discussion moderated by The Hollywood Reporter that was just released.



Speaking of Jake and fellow stars,  a story quietly slipped into the media mix.  It was dismissing the idea of Jake's fellow Southpaw co-star Rachel McAdams. Bustle's "Who's Rachel McAdams dating? It's Probably not Jake Gyllenhaal." effectively put down the idea of her with Jake or even with Jake during the filming of Southpaw.  Hey Bustle what do you know to rule the Jakester out so quick? ; )

Like they say, timing is everything.

P & Q's


As Austin checks to make sure the paps get this shot we are checking out Austin's cap.


This
perppap walk was October 21st in LA, but that's no LA team allegiance Austin's sporting.

Now why would Austin be wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates cap on a stroll in LA?

 He has said that he wants to be a pirate.  Maybe he got to be a Pirates fan this summer.

Now who had just wrapped after filming in Pittsburgh.

Oh that's right -  this guy. 

Wanna bet there were some summer 'Squatchi sightings.

Out Spotlight

Today's Out Spotlight was an American historian, activist, independent scholar, self-described "community-based" researcher and college drop-out, and award-winning author. He is best known for his research and writing about homosexual members of the American Armed Forces during World War II. Today's Out Spotlight is Allan Bérubé.


Allan Bérubé was born December 3, 1946, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He lived with his family in Monson, Massachusetts, and later in a trailer park near the waterfront in Bayonne, New Jersey. He lived for a time in Boston and for many years in San Francisco. He moved to New York City, and finally settled in Liberty, New York.

Bérubé is best known for his 1990 book, “Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women in World War Two.” He posits that servicemen and women during the war found the freedom to explore sexuality in a relatively judgment-free environment. When these soldiers returned home, many settled into a domestic heterosexual lifestyle that launched the baby boom. But a few, knowing they were not as “deviant” as they had been led to believe, decided to stand up against homosexual persecution.

Though he dropped out of college, Bérubé maintained a lifelong passion for scholarship. In 1976 Jonathan Ned Katz’s “Gay American History” inspired Bérubé to conduct his own research. He helped to form the San Francisco Lesbian and Gay History Project. In 1979 he created a slideshow titled “Lesbian Masquerade” about 19th-century women who had passed as men. The presentation became popular and was shown repeatedly in the San Francisco Bay area.

Due to his local celebrity, Bérubé received from an acquaintance the letters of Harold Clark. These letters detailed Clark’s friendships with other gay men during World War II. Bérubé created a second slideshow lecture, which he toured with across the country. His work inspired veterans to contribute their stories to the project. Thus began the 10-year journey that culminated in the publication of “Coming Out Under Fire.”

In 1990 “Coming Out Under Fire” received the Lambda Literary Award for outstanding Gay Men’s Nonfiction and influenced the U.S. Senate’s 1993 hearings on the exclusion of lesbians and gay men from the military. A documentary adaptation of the book won a Peabody Award.

Bérubé passed away December 11, 2006, in Liberty, NY.

The records of Bérubé's life and work are preserved by the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco, of which he was a founding member. Bérubé donated the research and administrative files of his World War II Project to the society in 1995, with an accretion in 2000 (collection no. 1995-16). That collection is processed and open to researchers; a finding aid is available on the Web at the Online Archive of California.

Bérubé also donated the records of the Forget-Me-Nots (collection no. 1989-10), an affinity group of which he was a member; the group performed civil disobedience at the United States Supreme Court during the 1987 Second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, with each participant protesting in honor of an individual who had died of AIDS.
Following Bérubé's death, the executors of his estate donated his complete personal and professional papers to the Historical Society. The society has processed the papers, opened them to researchers and posted an online finding aid; the collection includes more than 75 linear feet (150-plus boxes) of records. A number of other collections of personal papers and organizational records at the GLBT Historical Society also include correspondence from Bérubé and other material documenting his work; details are available by searching the society's online catalog of manuscript collections
 “The massive mobilization for World War II relaxed the social constraints of peacetime that had kept gay men and women unaware of … each other.”
