TV News: American Horror Story records its most explicit gay sex scene to date | Kenya briefly lifts ban on gay film, Rafiki, to allow for Oscar submission

Sometimes you just have to be happy that Ryan Murphy can make television how he wants.

In the latest episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Evie, the character played by Dame Joan Collins got the surprise of her life.

She walked in on two men having sex in a very kinky way.

Evan Peters plays Mr Gallant, a gay hairdresser and one of the few people alive after the apocalypse. Collins’ character, Evie, is his fabulous and wealthy grandmother. And they, along with a few selected others, live at The Outpost, a strange otherworldly place.

The scene begins with the Rubber Man, otherwise known as the latex sex gimp, paying Gallant a visit in his room.

‘Is this phase two of the interview or are you just here on your own time?’ Gallant asks.

He believes the Rubber Man is the inquisitor that demanded to know questions about his sexuality earlier in the episode.

‘I’m yours,’ he says, as they kiss. ‘Body and fucking soul.’

It is at this moment that Evie is walking through the hall. Hearing the sounds of moaning and groaning, she looks through the door.

Check on the clip of the scene below.

The scene has definitely played well with fans.

‘AHS Apocalypse Evan Peters gay latex scene,’ one said on Twitter. ‘They can literally do anything else with this season and it will still be my favorite season just because of that scene alone.’

Another said: ‘That’s how I want to spend the Apocalypse…rough gay leather sex lmao #AHSApocalypse

And another said: ‘AHS Apocalypse has yet to intrigue me. But I vote for more Evan Peters sex scenes, thanks.’

Gay sex scenes are not exactly new to the Ryan Murphy franchise. Just last year, during Cult, comedian Billy Eichner and singer Colton Haynes played characters having sex on a dining table. In the episode, Ally Mayfair-Richards (Sarah Paulson) is investigating a series of strange occurrences in her Harrison’s house. As she breaks into her neighbor’s house, she finds the two caught in the act.

 

And in other TV news, Kenyan cinemagoers will be able to see Rafiki, the critically acclaimed film banned in the country for promoting lesbianism, but only for seven days as ruled by a judge.

The decision makes Rafiki, meaning “friend” in Swahili, eligible to be entered for a foreign language Oscar, delighting the filmmakers but angering Kenya’s censor.

The film tells the story of two teenage girls, the daughters of political opponents, whose relationship is opposed by their families and the broader community.

It premiered at Cannes, the first Kenyan film to be selected by the prestigious festival, but was banned domestically on the grounds that it promotes homosexuality, a criminal offence under a colonial-era law.

“I am not convinced that Kenya is such a weak society that it cannot handle a gay theme. There are Kenyans who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy today,” Justice Wilfrida Okwany told a packed courtroom in Nairobi.

The judge said the makers of the film were now “allowed to admit the film” to Kenya’s Oscars selection committee. A precondition of submission is that a film has been shown for seven consecutive days.

The film’s director Wanuri Kahiu tweeted:

The film is an adaptation of a prizewinning short story by Ugandan author, Monica Arac de Nyeko.

The Kenya film classification board, which banned Rafiki in April, said it would comply with the court’s orders but criticised an “attempt to normalize homosexuality … akin to air-conditioning hell”.

“It is a sad moment and a great insult, not only to the film industry, but to all Kenyans who stand for morality, that a film that glories homosexuality is allowed to be the country’s branding tool abroad … The board firmly believes films should reflect the dominant values of the Kenyan people. Homosexuality does not qualify as such,” the board said in a statement.

The film’s creators gained widespread support for a legal attempt to overturn the board’s decision.

“There is a history to this story of overreach. In enacting the law on films and stage plays in Kenya, the colonial state viewed artistic expression as inherently subversive and disruptive of the status quo … When art is truthful and fulfilling its social function, it shows the world as changeable and helps in changing it,” Kimani Njogu, a respected linguist and writer, wrote in the Nation newspaper last week.

At least one Nairobi cinema has already announced it will screen the film.

    I’m just here applauding Kenya, and how they have a system that is sufficiently progressive in spite of its African homophobia. 👏👏👏👏👏🤗🤗 Well done. I hope the movie gets to be seen outside Kenya. Perhaps it’ll hit torrent sites? #FeelingHopeful
