Gay Agenda is a weekly column for Billboard Pride where we run down a few fab things before the weekend. Between new tracks, music videos and pop culture moments, we want our readers to be prepared for boozy brunch conversation.
1. Audible released a new audio version of Oscar Wilde’s classic novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, read by the hunky Russell Tovey. The out actor has been notorious for playing gay characters (Looking, Quantico and an upcoming role on Arrow) and is the perfect choice to breathe new life into one of the first British novels to subtly explore same-sex desire. The recording is available exclusively on Audible.
2. R&B crooner Justin Michael Williams has released a graphic visual for his slow-jam “He & I.” You may remember Williams from a divas mash-up he released in June. With tracks from Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Christina Aguilera, the medley’s viral video featured cameos from Drag Race favs Nina Bo'Nina Brown, Aja and Eureka.
