Colby Keller Explains His Role In Grindr’s Shakespeare-Inspired Film

by Jeremy Kinser March 25, 2016

 

I play each of those ‘Seven Ages,’ and there’s one other person who plays a soldier I carry off the battlefield — this beautiful man with a crazy body. But all the other stages of man are played by me. It was a lot of fun and I think it will be really beautiful. The project really was Landis Smithers’ creative idea and he has, from what I’ve seen, really nailed everything. It sort of looks like a classic ’80s perfume ad… Grindr has a big audience and they use it specifically for one thing, which is meeting other men for sex. There’s a lot of potential for them to provide a space for gay men to learn more about fashion, art and music. This project was a way for both of us to reach our respective audiences and do something fun together that will hopefully show the potential in this. If you have a big platform that’s reaching a lot of different people, it’s a great idea to think about ways to expand that reach and give people a more complex relationship with their community. I think they wanted to reach more into that space where sex and art have a relationship, and that’s an area I’m also interested in.”Colby Keller discussing his role in The Seven Ages of Man (directed by Grindr’s VP of Marketing) in an interview with Paper magazine

by Dan Tracer September 28, 2016

  This job has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve never played a character that hit so close to the bone. It felt like an extension of myself taking place in the present. Trying to figure out what it means to be gay. Patrick and I are from the same generation of gay [...]

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Winner Tyra Sanchez Releases Hot New Track, Serious Iggy Azalea Vibes

by Tim Winfred September 28, 2016

Yeah, we know most people aren’t the biggest fan of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez – she was controversial during her time on the show, and her post-show career hasn’t been a smooth ride either. Nevertheless, her new track Vogue is seriously hot, and worth a listen. The song’s beat is reminiscent of [...]
