LA Weekly Discusses Hollywood’s Closet

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,cover2.jpgLA Weekly has a cover story by the lovely Patrick Range McDonald about secret queer leading men in Hollywood.

The publicist hasn’t brought out an A-list, gay male actor – yet. But Bragman says that day is coming, and after the first superstar decides to reveal himself, a fundamental shift in American acceptance of gay leading men may not be far behind. He’s currently working with a famous musician who’s still closeted from the public, but who will come out next year. And the manager of one major movie star approached Bragman a year ago and asked about his client’s possibly going public, but the actor still refuses to pull the trigger.

“I felt a little frustrated with that superstar,” Bragman says in reflection, “because it had to be ‘handled.’ “

Well, to answer your question they don’t exactly name names. But the story does come out merely hours after the openly gay Rich Ross is named chairman of Disney.

So yeah, “we’re used to it.”
