Goth Poet Gay Stuff

I know I linked to my review of Mary Shelley over at The Film Experience just a couple of weeks ago, but I can now link to it again this time using gifs of the moment in the film where Tom Sturridge (playing the poet Lord Byron) kisses Douglas Booth (playing Percy Shelley) and I think we can all agree that this, hark, is a worthwhile endeavor. Indeed! Forsooth! Et cetera! Happy Pride!

Who wouldn't want to kiss Douglas Booth's full lips?

Check out A Waste of Shame: The Mystery of Shakespeare and His Sonnets, which was a 2005 BBC TV movie that was sort of a very dark version of Shakespeare in Love, with Rupert Graves as Shakespeare and a radiantly beautiful Tom Sturridge as the understandable object of his desire.
