He’s not hairy. He shaves his pits and pubes. But gosh darn it, I love to look at this young fella!
What price Hollywood? was the title of an early George Cukor film, but is a question every closeted movie star has probably asked himself. In 1930, the top box office star was a gay man. Billy Haines lived with his lover, Jimmie Shields, and never posed on the red carpet with a beard on his arm. By 1933, he was washed up in show business; and by 1936, he had become hugely successful in an entirely new line of work-interior decorator. Out of the Closet, Off the Screen: the Life of William Haines details the extraordinary life of Billy Haines, the only matinee idol who ever decided that Hollywood’s price was too high and walked away from film stardom.

Define Beauty: His Sweat
Matt Lambert gets under the skin of our infatuation with the bodily fluid
For the first instalment of the new series of Define Beauty, our series exploring the nuances of desire, Berlin-based director Matt Lambert delves into the sensual side of sweat. Here, the American filmmaker and photographer—known for his often-NSFW work exploring sex and intimacy—talks about his film asking: exactly what it is about our most-prevalent bodily fluid that have so many feeling weak at the knees?:
“I held an open casting call via my Instagram, inviting people to share thoughts on their love of sweat. The film aims to demystify, celebrate, sensualize and add humor to sweat and the love many gay men have for it.
“Sweat becomes a metaphor for love, sex, masculinity, vulnerability, excretion, exhaustion and intimacy”
“It’s a film about sweat, but we rarely refer to the sweat itself. It’s much more about its essence and what it represents. Sweat becomes a metaphor for love, sex, masculinity, vulnerability, excretion, exhaustion and intimacy.”
