In a recent cover story and interview with Rolling Stone magazine, James Franco discuss his fascination with queer art.
When I was studying at NYU, I took classes in critical studies, and one of my favorites was on queer cinema. We've told the straight, heteronormative stories ad nauseam by now, in our movies, our shows, our commercials — everywhere. I think it's healthy to make work that disrupts and questions that, and shows alternative narratives. That's what an artist should do.
He also clarifies his own sexuality:
I'm gay in my art and straight in my life. I'm also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse.
are you only gay in your art, ontd?
