This summer’s Pride coverboy is Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson. You can read the cover story and see the first set of images on Advocate.com. Above, are two outtakes from the shoot, photographed by M. Sharkey in New York City. After the jump, see a behind-the-scenes GIF of Jesse’s mean encounter with his collection of bowties and an industrial fan. —Scott McPherson
Iconoclastic Features released the teaser trailer for their independent feature Disappear Here last week. The thriller stars out actor and activist James Duke Mason, grandson of the late Academy-Award Nominated James Mason and a 2010 Advocate Forty Under 40 honoree. While tackling the timely issue of the “Hollywood closet,” Mason plays a young and successful closeted actor who is blackmailed after a video surfaces (they always do!) of him and his boyfriend, and he finds himself in the middle of a political conspiracy. While initially funded via Kickstarter.com, the feature is currently in production and due out next year. Check out the teaser trailer after the jump!
Out artist Adam Lambert spent the weekend under the Miami sun during the 5th Annual Miami Beach Gay Pride celebration. On Saturday he attended a press conference where he was awarded the key to the city of Miami Beach and Sunday he headlined the big Pride event in South Beach’s Lummus Park. Scantily-clad male dancers performed alongside Glambert, who sang songs from his album Trespassing, which debuted last spring at number one (and making him the first openly gay artist to do so.) After the jump, check out a video of Lambert performing the album’s title-track “Trespassing” and “Naked Love.” You can also read The Advocate’s November 2011 cover story, “Reinventing Adam Lambert” here.
