Eddie Izzard's next film



'Ex' Marks the Spot for Faris, Izzard

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- Eddie Izzard and Anna Faris are joining Regency Enterprises' comedy "Super Ex."

The Ivan Reitman-directed project stars Uma Thurman and Owen Wilson.

Wilson stars as a normal guy who breaks up with his girlfriend (Thurman) after he discovers that she's really a superhero, or perhaps after she becomes too controlling and neurotic. She decides to use her powers for evil and not for good, at least so far as it involves getting revenge on him.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Faris ("Scary Movie") will play a love interest for Wilson's character, while Izzard will play the film's main villain, a baddie named Professor Bedlam. Don Payne ("The Simpsons") is writing the script.

In addition to her lead roles in the "Scary Movie" films, Faris' credits include a supporting part in the indie hit "Lost in Translation" and an guest starring arc in the final season of NBC's "Friends."

Izzard won two Emmys for his 1999 television special "Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill." He's been seen on the big screen in films like "The Cat's Meow," "Ocean's Twelve" and the upcoming "Romance & Cigarettes."

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham

activist/writer/speaker

There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube.

Transphobic reporting from Rolling Stone?

The Mystery of Larry Wachowskiby PETER WILKINSON for ROLLING STONE

Overall the piece reads like a well informed look at a famous transsexual. It's not.

J. Michael Bailey, a professor of psychology at Northwestern University and the author of The Man Who Would Be Queen: The Science of Gender-Bending and Transsexualism, is a vocal proponent of the science behind autogynephilia, and although he declined to comment about Larry Wachowski, he did describe typical autogynephilic behaviors. "Autogynephiles frequently mention having a longing to be a girl that begins in childhood," says Bailey. "But the first outward manifestation of it usually crops up in early adolescence, when they discover that it turns them on to wear women's clothing. What you do not see, despite frequent claims to the contrary, is evidence that these folks were notably feminine in childhood." - The Mystery of Larry Wachowski
