The New LGBT Celebrity Freeheld actors and female powerhouses Julianne Moore and Ellen Page united off screen in our October issue. Showcased in Ruven Afanador’s beautifully executed photo spread, Moore and Page told managing editor R. Kurt Osenlund about the pressures an LGBT person faces in Hollywood, and what it was like joining forces for a film that explored our country’s sociopolitical history before marriage equality was passed. “Who knew Julianne Moore and Ellen Page could be a celebrity match made in heaven?” asked SheKnows. “The two costars reflect candidly on their new film Freeheld that empowered them and became so much more than just a movie.” While Moore admitted she “[wasn’t] aware of how painful it is to be closeted,” Page, in particular, received praise for her unfiltered comments. “Freeheld’] story…

MARY-LOUISE PARKER is trying to pinpoint the proper way to describe her longtime connection to gay men. “What’s the politically correct term?” she asks. Surely it isn’t “fag hag,” or “fruit fly,” and “ally” seems too stiff. So no conclusion is reached, save an unspoken, mutually understood one. Parker is one of those women with whom gay men find an alternately supportive and hilarious symbiosis. Yet as she recalls the queer friends who have meant the most to her in life—many of whom are subjects in Dear Mr. You, her new anthology of letters directed to anonymous, fact-based male characters—she seems slightly less aware of just how much women like her mean to us.

1. JAMES WHITE’ LIFE LESSONS A HARROWING DRAMA WITH A STANDOUT PERFORMANCE FROM CYNTHIA NIXON When James White opens, its title character, played by Christopher Abbott, is drinking his pain away and wearing headphones in a dark club, drowning out the thump of house music with easy listening. When he barges through the exit, daylight hits him like a truck. Like so many 20-somethings in modern cinema, James is sniffing out a means of escape at every turn. Yet what makes James White distinct is that it bookends its story with death so its lead can learn survival. Accompanied by his best friend (Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi, who also scored the movie), James goes from mourning the loss of his estranged father to immediately caring for his terminally ill mother, Gail (Cynthia Nixon). Teeming…
