Dustin Lance Black Takes Aim At GQ Australia For The "Gay Question" Asked Of Taylor Lautner

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayWhen Celebrities BlogTaylor LautnerDustin Lance BlackLGBT


Class, let's review:

Quite some time ago, Taylor Launter was spotted having a lunch meeting with Dustin Lance Black and Gus Vant Sant. It was obviously innocent enough, just a friendly meeting of the minds, possibly talking about a new project and what not. However, since Dustin and Gus are proud-and-out gays and rumors have been circulating about Taylor's sexuality since he told Bella a scary story in Twilight, people jumped to some really ludacris conclutions about their dining experience.

One such person was the writer for GQ Australia who interviewed Tay Tay last month and asked him just about that meal. Specifically, he asked if either Dustin or Gus made a pass on Launter, who politley insisted that they didn't.

Well, Dustin is a little more seasoned with handling this sort of questioning, so after reading the artcle, he took to his personal blog to let this writer have a taste of his own medicine. He wrote:

"Really Mr. GQ writer? I'm curious, will you be asking all of the handsome actors I've ever had the privilege of working with or meeting if I made passes at them as well? I'd love to be there when you ask Sean Penn that same question. Or, Mr. GQ writer, were you projecting your own unprofessional desires onto me and Gus? Above and beyond this clear attack on my character, I'm shocked that GQ would allow their writer to lean on the scurrilous, outdated stereotype that gay men are by nature sexual predators. I mean, would you have asked this same question if it were Diablo Cody and Kathryn Bigelow at dinner with Mr. Lautner?

Leaning on lies, myths and stereotypes about gay people is hateful, harmful and outdated. It's not the 1950s anymore GQ, it's 2011 and it's time to grow up."

Well said, sir! As per usual!

We understand the desperate need to uncover truths about young celebrities all to well, but not for the sake of slandering another person's good name simply because of his sexual orientation.

Big no-no!

    Dustin Lance Black LIKES BAREBACK SEX with sleazy street hustlers…

  2. 2

    I call BS on this story! How can anyone cal Taylor Lautner either handsome OR am actor? And this Dustin Lance Black person looks like the bastard offspring of Kevin Bacon and Ron Weasley.

  3. 3

    quit with the over sensitivities. I suspect it was asked in a jokey way. Mario, you are a total gay predator and cant mention any half decent looking man without some sexual reference so YOU are responsible for the very stereotypes Dustin is referring too! Yet again the huge hypocrite with no self awareness whatsoever.

    2 people dining together and someone jumps to conclusions that they are going out….hmmm, sounds familiar Hilton.

  5. 5

    Dustin Lance Black is sloppy bottom posted all over the internet taking it bareback. Who is he to comment on anything?

  6. 6

    And Mario try being consistent for once. You originally reported this and seemed very impressed and amused by the interviewers cheek asking him this question. Now youve decided to suddenly be offended? okaay then.

  7. 7

    I'm Glad he actually responded. I had the very same thoughts when I first heard the story. Does he ask every actress the same question when she meets with straight director? Does he ask about their attempting to seduce her on the casting couch? And he is not the only one at fault here. Any editor worth their salt would have edited that question out. Though I don't even find it appropriate to ask any person about their sexuality, even a direct question like that would have been more appropriate. Their has been grimblings about Lautner's orientation. But quite frankly it is no one's business. Perhaps Lautner should have taken the interviewer's question as a less then subtle enquiry for the writer's own desires. Good for Dustin Black's response. It was an asinine question and should be treated as such.

    There's a ways to go; it's kind of a new learning curve for heteros. Bits like this help bring awareness.

    Oh poo.

    Re: Gay Republican – Who is he to comment on anything? well unlike the perez trolling fool that you are he is an academy award winning writer that directors like clint eastwood and ron howard want to work with. as far as his sex life goes i'm sure it doesn't even come close to how strange yours is. i hear gay republicans like the weirdest, most degrading sex acts due to all that self loathing and gay guilt you guys carry around with you. chrissy barron probably has your ass in a sling. i'm sure he must use a dildo though being the dickless twit that he is.

  11. 11

    Wasn't this guy all over the internet with a c*ck up his ass?

  12. 12

    Looks like he has a fading black eye.

  13. 13

    I think GQ and the rest of the world is aware of the fact that Taylor L clearly is a homo and was just trying to get a confirmation. The fact that he got so defensive seems like a round a bout way of saying, "duh"

  14. 14

    Perez, who wrote this article? Wow.

    Launter - Lautner.
    Ludacris - Ludicrous.
    Conclution - Conclusion.
    Politley - Politely.
    Artcle- Article

  15. 15

    I still can't believe you posted those pics of him

  16. 16

    Re: FrankieLA

    and you think somebody who films themselves having bareback sex and allows it to hit the internet is a good example and spokeperson for gays? Id say his actions are 100 times more of a bad influence. BB sex risks lives. God forbid people like him keep their sex private and refrain from filming it for others to get hold of!

  17. 17

    Re: PHWOARR – it hardly sounds like he was "allowing" the photos to hit the internet like you have implied. unfortunately he isn't the first and i'm sure he won't be the last celebrity or politician to have something that they think is private posted all over the internet.
    "It is unfortunate that individuals and other outside parties are trying to profit from material which is clearly private. I have had the privilege to speak to people across the country, both gay and straight, on a number of critical issues including safe sex. More important than the embarrassment of this incident is the misleading message these images send. I apologize and cannot emphasize enough the importance of responsible sexual practices."

    Is that a yes?

    I think Tay should just come out all ready!

    "slandering another person's good name"? BS………You only are sticking up for him because he is already out…….but if he weren't you would have no problem trying to out him. If someone is not out and doesn't want to, trying to out them could be slandering their "good name" in their opinions as well.

  22. 22

    I like GQ, and writers are artists, too, and are allowed to indulge in levity. Australia has a macho culture. (Remember The Wiggles and Captain Feathersword? Not to mention the outlaw Ned Kelly and so many others.) It sounds like the guy was just joshing.

    Has Mr. Dustin Lance Black criticized Mitt Romney for his flip-flops, or are fellow Mormons off limits? DLB made some valid points, but I don't think you can police someone else's sense of humor.

  23. 23

    This seems like a pretty standard case of americans not sharing the same sense of humour as australians.

    When i read about it, i took it more as a comment of the fact that Launter must get hit on a lot, considering his female following, and if gay men felt the same way.

    I did not at all look at it as a jab at homosexuals or even like he was trying to find out about launter's sexuality.

    I think sometimes people can be over sensitive and maybe this is one of those cases. Yes anti-gay hate is unacceptable and and i do not in anyway agree with those haters, however if you keep playing the victim then it makes it hard for people to share any humour with you, for fear they may say something that is somehow construed as anti-gay etc.

    Legitimate question. A fruity actor that the media and Hollywood are desperately trying to pass off as a masculine action hunk that is FAILING miserably goes to dinner with 2 gay guys..If a fruity actor that has his sexuality question goes to a meeting with 2 gay guys, its going to be asked. Tons of actors out there could of gotten away with it and not be questioned. Wait, So now we are not even allowed to question supposedly gays on this subject? Jesus how much special treatment does this minority want.

  25. 25

    Oh I know people will hate me for this but I'm pretty sure the interviewer would have asked the same question regardless if the person was gay or straight. Why? Because everyone wants to know who he's hooking up with.

  26. 26

    JUST SHUT UP PEREZ! I agree with Dustin, but YOU on the other hand seemed to have had no problem with it when you originally posted the story. Everyone knows you are not capable of an original thought!
