In his new book of poems, Hollywood
actor James Franco asks himself, “Are you f**king gay or what?”
Franco's various gay roles and support
for the LGBT community have led to questions about his own sexuality.
Instead of denying the rumors, Franco
has fanned them.
In an interview with dot429.com earlier
this year, Franco said that he's gay “up to the point of
intercourse” and added that he enjoys his “queer public persona.”
A new tantalizing twist in Franco's
campaign to convince us that he's warming up to the possibility can
be found in his upcoming poetry book, Straight James / Gay James.
“Straight James / Gay James,
actor James Franco's new chapbook of poems, explores the facets of
his public and private personas,” the
book's description reads. “Straight James / Gay James
is a poetic bildungsroman – raw, candid, and uninhibited. James
Franco writes about life as an actor, sexuality, questions of
identity, gender, family, Gucci, Lana Del Rey, James Dean, and
Hollywood. His poetic style varies from the imagistic to the prosaic.
The chapbook also contains an interview of 'Gay James' conducted by
'Straight James.' Yes, Straight James asks the question: Let's get
substantial: are you fucking gay or what?”
James / Gay James is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
