Gillum said, “You didn’t ask the question, you put it out there as whether I identify as gay. The answer is, I don’t identify as gay but I do identify as bisexual,” Gillum told Hall during the interview, which was the season two debut of the Tamron Hall show. “And that is something that I’ve never shared publicly before.”

HOSTILITY & HOMOPHOBIA in the Cayman Islands? According to the Cayman Compass, “Leaked screenshots from a Christian, faith-based WhatsApp group have put the islands’ LGBTQ community on alert over the threatening and violent nature of the messages involved. Advocacy group Colours Cayman is demanding police conduct a thorough investigation into the messages, which suggest gay community members be hanged and their conduct criminalized.”

Steiner writes over at The Mary Sue, “Levy, who had previously expressed interest in playing a gay superhero, discussed his relationship with the genre, and his deep dive into the world of LGBTQ+ superheroes:
“I think for a long time, I didn’t really pay attention to a lot of superhero movies because there were not a lot of gay people in them. In a way, I had always put them in a place that I didn’t have a direct line of relation to because I don’t read the comic books. It wasn’t until I started researching the monologue that I realized, within the actual comic book world, there is quite an incredible array of queer superheroes. Where are they in the movies? I mean, really, in researching for this part, it opened my eyes to the world of comic books, in a way. There are some really lovely stories that are being told in these comic books, queer stories. I would love to hopefully be a part of that at some point.”
Who do you think Dan Levy should play? My money is on fellow Canadian Northstar. I mean, the resemblance is uncanny:

NO 5G AT DC Newsarama says that “DC’s publisher/chief creative officer Jim Lee says If you’re looking forward to DC’s 5G initiative, it’s “not going to happen” and that some of the reports online have been “wrong” speculation. As revealed in a prerecorded ‘Jim Lee answers fan questions about comic books’ video which debuted during September 12’s DC FanDome: Welcome to the Multiverse, Lee shoots down the widespread 5G rumors and instead paints a more “organic” and individualized approach to bolstering the DC comics line in 2021. “There won’t be a project called ‘5G’, or a big reboot, or whatever,” Lee says. “We really want to focus on individual titles, and organically build up individual characters over the course of the next year.”
