Sunday Morning Man: Jan-Michael Gambill!!!

Jan-Michael Gambill, one of the most gorgeous guys to ever pick up a tennis racket, turned 46 yesterday – and he’s still gorgeous!

A television analyst for Tennis Channel, he was once ranked as high as 14th in the world in men’s tennis and had wins over former #1 players Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Lleyton Hewitt and Carlos Moya.

His unique playing style – a two-handed forehand and backhand, took him far including three pro tournament wins and a quarterfinal finish at Wimbledon.

Even when he was still on the tennis tour, Jan-Michael was one of the most buffed players around with abs you could grate cheese on! One year when I was at the UCLA tournament, I got there early to watch the players practice and there was this glorious blonde man practicing, shirtless, on the stadium court. I did what any self-respecting gay man with a camera would do:sat down and shot half a roll of film of this absolute hottie.

Looking at the fuzzy batch of photos below, I’m sure you understand why! I’ve also included some picks of our Morning Man with his equally gorgeous partner, /architectural designer Malek Alqadi.

Today’s Morning Man: Anderson Cooper!

The Silver Fox and father of two turns 56 today!

So let’s make a bit of a fuss over Anderson Cooper who seems to have been achieving more work-life balance in recent years as he juggles fatherhood with his jobs at CNN and CBS News.

He certainly knows how to keep a gig as he has been host of CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 since 2003 and a correspondent for 60 Minutes since 2007. Anderson has won 18 Emmy Awards and two Peabody Awards, as well as an Edward Murrow Award from the Overseas Press Club in 2011.

He came out as gay in 2012 and became the father of Wyatt Morgan Cooper in 2020 and Sebastian Luke Maisani-Cooper earlier this year. He is raising the children with former long-term partner Benjamin Maisani.

Elliot Page on ‘the Ease I Feel’ as a Trans Man Today: ‘I Used to Never Feel Like My Skin Was My Own’

Elliot Page is ready to talk about his life story, which he’s just put down on paper in his much-anticipated new memoir, Pageboy.

His is a remarkable one: how a Canadian child star overcame his fears to become an Oscar nominee (for 2007’s Juno), superhero (the X-Men franchise and he’s starring in the final season of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy), and, now, perhaps the most famous trans person on the planet, since coming out in 2020.

“When I’m walking down the street, and young people come up to me, it means the world to me,” Page, 36, who graces the cover of this week’s PEOPLE, says. “Them being themselves, having the courage to say, ‘This is who I am, and I’m gonna live authentically.’”

“The privilege I have, does not represent the reality of most trans lives,” adds Page. “The reality is trans people disproportionately are unemployed, disproportionately experience homelessness. Trans women of color are being murdered. People are losing their healthcare.”

Not that his journey has been without difficulty. “I do feel like I barely made it in many ways,” Page says.

He opens up about those challenges — and the joy he’s found on the other side.

Check out official teaser for miniseries “Fellow Travelers” starring Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey

SHOWTIME has released the first teaser for its new limited series Fellow Travelers. The eight-episode drama is created by Oscar nominee Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia, HOMELAND) and stars Matt Bomer (The Normal Heart, The Boys in the Band), Jonathan Bailey (Bridgerton), Jelani Alladin (The Walking Dead World Beyond), Allison Williams (Get Out, Girls) and Noah J. Ricketts (American Gods). Bomer and Nyswaner will executive produce with Robbie Rogers (All American, My Policeman) and Dee Johnson. Daniel Minahan (Halston, American Crime Story: Versace) will executive produce and direct the first two episodes. Fellow Travelers will premiere on Paramount+ With SHOWTIME later this fall.

Based on the novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers is an epic love story and political thriller, chronicling the clandestine romance of two very different men who meet in McCarthy-era Washington. Bomer plays charismatic Hawkins Fuller, who maintains a financially rewarding, behind-the scenes career in politics. Hawkins avoids emotional entanglements – until he meets Tim Laughlin (Bailey), a young man brimming with idealism and religious faith. They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants,” initiating one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history. Over the course of four decades, we follow our five main characters – Hawk, Tim, Marcus (Alladin), Lucy (Williams), and Frankie (Ricketts) – as they cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves.

Tony Award nominee Alex Newell: “I’d like to have this world understand my heart and understand my art” Editor-in-Chief Paul Wontorek catches up with Shucked Tony nominee Alex Newell at Glass House Tavern on a recent episode of The Broadway Show. Very exciting to see the Glee and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist alum having such success on the Broadway stage. Newell also starred as Asaka in the Broadway revival of Once on This Island at the Circle in the Square Theater in 2018.
