My Gay Paris propose you : French Olympic swimmers pose as ‘imaginary gay couple’ for anti-homophobia campaign

Two male French Olympic swimmers have posed in an intimate shot as an “imaginary couple”, as part of a campaign to tackle homophobia, which also features images of Eva Longoria and Lara Fabian.
Florent Manaudou and Frédérick Bousquet, posed in the photo, taken by Olivier Ciappa, who also started the campaign.
The project is called “imaginary couples”, and includes shots of other models, featuring the caption: “A peaceful look on homosexuality”, and features the “couples” asleep in each other’s arms, or in intimate, happy situations.

Other “couples” include actress Eva Longoria, and singer and actress Lara Fabian.

Ciappa described in an interview the pitch he made to the swimmers, when approaching them for the shoot. He said: “You’re with the person you love. Not a man, not a woman. Then, at the session, I disappear, for they are one with each other.”

On the Facebook page, featuring the images, the artist describes that the images were temporarily blocked, as they were “reported” too many times as inappropriate.
The photographs are being exhibited in Paris for one week.
In real life, Bousquet is partnered with Manaudou’s sister, and the couple have a daughter together.

You come to Paris ? Come visiting AbsoluLiving and his apartment Central Marais 2 !

My Gay Paris advise you : Now in our movie theatres: Stranger by the Lake* – a gay erotic thriller.

The Cannes synopsis said it all: ‘Summertime. A cruising spot for men, tucked away on the shores of a lake. Franck falls in love with Michel. An attractive, potent and lethally dangerous man. Franck knows this, but wants to live out his passion anyway.’

L'inconnu du lac affiche

The very artistic poster featuring 2 men kissing — and even sexual positions in the background — is everywhere in Paris. There was even a huge debate around it as 2 Parisian suburbs (Versailles and Saint-Cloud), took the posters down as they were considered to be too shocking. But there’s more than just sex or provocation to this movie…

Inconnu du lac 1

A movie about love and passion.

Set near an idyllic lake (…), writer-director Alain Guiraudie’s sexually charged thriller is mixing explicit sex with explicit love. As quoted by AFP (Agence France Presse), Alain Guiraudie explained the (purportedly) graphic sex scenes in Stranger by the Lake* as a cinematic union of romantic love and sex. “I wanted to mix the two,” said Guiraudie. “I wasn’t looking to have beautiful love scenes interrupted by pornographic vignettes. I wanted to mix all that, so that it all goes together, that the sex be beautiful.”

Inconnu du lac 2

(…) Something else that’s positive about Stranger by the Lake*: whatever its sociopolitical intentions, if any, Alain Guiraudie’s film shows that, for better or for worse, there’s much more in gay men’s minds and lives than the desire of becoming accepted into mainstream society’s traditional institutions.

Inconnu du lac 3

Stranger by the Lake* has won the 2013 Queer Palm handed out to Cannes Film Festival movies featuring gay, lesbian, bi, tri, multi, transgender, etc. characters (…). The movie will be released in more than 20 other countries including The US.
