5 Things: Gays’ Gazes, Sally Field’s Son’s Commentary, Tegan & Sara’s Memoir, Queen’s New Crown, and Zac Riley’s (@zacriley) X-Mas Bulge

Today we’ve got shiny new Santa bulges, a memoir made specifically for our teen-aged angst, a new record for Freddie Murcury, and more.

1. The move to censor social media has and will always discriminate against gay artists.

Nude subjects have traditionally been reserved exclusively for the male gaze, so when a man poses nude, to some this implies that the image is homoerotic. For its 2014 Body Issues, ESPN posted a nude Venus Williams on its Facebook page and to this day, famous photographer Helmut Newton’s Facebook page displays female nudes, vaginas, breasts, and nipples all exposed. So besides corporations getting a pass, it seems like the famous also get a pass.

We have been through it on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook before. Now it’s Tumblr and history will repeat. LGBT content will be censored far heavier than equally explicit straight content. Definitely check out the full piece over on The Advocate.

2. Sam Pancake and Sally Field’s son Sam Greisman take on what may be Field’s campiest work: Home for the Holidays.

The campiest camp that ever could camp. This made-for-TV movie is amazing in all things 70’s camp. It’s even penned by the guy who scripted Psycho. Watch it above and listen to the riff-track below.

“How did you start your band? When did you know that you were gay? What were you like before Tegan and Sara? We have spent twenty years answering those complicated questions with simple answers. Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.”

4. Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is officially the biggest hit of the 20th century.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” has now been streamed more than 1.6 billion times worldwide. Making it the most popular song of the 20th Century.
