Christmas is the time of year to celebrate and indulge in food, fun and a little bit of extra Christmas cheer. As is the Eikon tradition we thought it only fair to follow traditions of Christmas’ past and give our readers some extra eye candy before the big day arrives.
Welcome to Eikon’s 12 Gays of Christmas.
Gay 11 – Dustin Lance Black
Well, his fiance made the list for being Tom Daley, so we thought Dustin Lance Black should make the list for being amazing and working all year to advance issues of the LGBT community.
Possibly the cutest 42-year-old in the world, the American Director and screenwriter extraordinaire didn’t release any films this year but did spend months producing and then directing the seven part mini-series that will premiere in 2017 titled When We Rise.
When We Rise chronicles the personal and political struggles, setbacks and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT people who helped pioneer an offshoot of the Civil Rights Movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today and starting with the Stonewall riots in 1969.
On top of that, “Lance” as Tom likes to call him, spent most of the year supporting and campaigning for Hillary Clinton in her failed attempt to win the Presidency.
Oh and he was poolside with Tom Daley every step of the way leading up to and during the Rio Olympics.
Congratulations on a stellar year Dustin Lance Black and we hope both you and Tom have an amazing Christmas in your new London pad.
