Stranger by the Lake...

Paris suburbs censor posters for Cannes prize winning gay thriller with seemingly real sex

Link Here12th June 2013

Stranger by the Lake (L'inconnu du lac) is a 2013 France gay drama by Alain Guiraudie.
With Pierre de Ladonchamps, Christophe Paou, Patrick d'Assumçao. YouTube icon IMDb


Summertime. A cruising spot for men, tucked away on the shores of a lake. Franck falls in love with Michel. An attractive, potent and lethally dangerous man. Franck knows this, but wants to live out his passion anyway.

This is surely the most explicit film to flush down the Croisette in some time, and its controversial nature is liable to make it a hot ticket at the festival, at least before audiences become aware of quite how affected the rather self-ingratiating explicitness is. Full-frontal male nudity aside, the various liaisons between the film's characters are depicted in sub-pornographic style, with shots of ejaculation and seemingly real oral sex adding little to the narrative while appearing to exist solely to shock (though they do cement a sense of place rather aptly).

Stranger by the Lake is a slow burn thriller about sex, desire and murder among a group of gay men.  As provocative for the ideas about desire, transgression and narcissism that it examines as for its graphic scenes of man-on-man coupling, Stranger by the Lake earned Guiraudie the Best Director prize in the Un Certain Regard category at Cannes.

It has also stirred controversy in France: on Monday, two Paris suburbs removed posters for the film that displayed an illustration of two men kissing after residents complained the image was inappropriate.

France 24 interviewed filmmaker Alain Guiraudie about the controversies. Read the  interview .



Update: Promoting Intolerance...

Russian parliament bans information about homosexuality from the public sphere

Link Here12th June 2013

Russia's lower house of parliament, the Duma, has passed a law imposing heavy fines for providing information about homosexuality to people under 18.

The measure was passed unanimously and will become law when approved by the upper house and President Vladimir Putin, a virtual formality.

Under the new law, private individuals promoting homosexual behaviour among minors face fines of up to 5,000 roubles (£100; $155) while officials risk paying 10 times that amount. Businesses and schools could be fined up to 500,000 roubles.

A recent poll found that nearly half of Russians believe that the gay and lesbian community should not enjoy the same rights as other citizens.

Update: Signed into law

1st July 2013. See  article from

Russia s president, Vladimir Putin , has signed into law a measure that stigmatises gay people and bans giving children any information about homosexuality.



No Benefit to New Zealanders...

Moralist campaigners set to lose their charity status after obsessively banging on about gay marriage

Link Here12th May 2013

A charities board says it made a decision to remove Family First New Zealand from the national Charities Register because it no longer meets the requirements of a charity.

It seems that the issue is the campaigners' obsessive rant against anything to do with gay marriage. The general manager of Charities Services, Brendon Ward said that at a recent meeting of the board:

The members determined that Family First's purpose did not meet the charitable purpose recognised in New Zealand law and set out in the Charities Act 2005.

The Board's position is that Family First's main purpose is to promote particular points of view about family life. Under the Act promotion of a controversial point of view is a political purpose.

Family First does not advance religion or education, nor promote a benefit to all New Zealanders as determined by the Act.

Family First maintains that it is beneficial to the public that it promotes debate and discussion of different points of view on family life. However, the current legal position is that promoting debate on particular points of view is not a charitable purpose.

Family First now has 20 working days to appeal the board's decision to the High Court.

Jumping on the Easy Offence Band Wagon...

Gays and truckers easily offended by Greek TV advert for travel company

Link Here8th April 2013

A Greek television advert is being withdrawn after both the country's truckers and the gay community took easy offence.

The ad for AirFastTickets shows a hitchhiker boarding a truck for Turin. As soon as the door shuts, the driver flicks a switch, a neon-lit pink divan with bears and pillows appears in the cabin, and he blows the passenger a suggestive kiss. The punch line is:

Do you want to travel cheaply, and end up paying for it dearly? 

The Hauliers Association whinged:

You have ridiculed Greek truckers brutally and without provocation

Greece's main gay association, OLKE, whinged that the ad typecasts gay men:

Gay men are presented as devious and sex-obsessed people trying to seduce unsuspecting youths. Once again, the easy road of homophobia and stereotypes is chosen to advertise products.

AirFastTickets produced a new version of the ad, in which the driver keeps a skull and electric candles in the back of the cabin and wants to take a detour through the Carpathian mountains. But the truck drivers was still 'outraged':

The new ad presents us as necrophilliacs. We will file a complaint about this one too.
