Let's hear it for those Gnostics

By now, everyone probably knows that Los Angeles philanthropist and gay activist Tom Gregory has purchased the postcards from Brokeback Mountain to go along with his purchase of the shirt (someone else got Jack Twist's pickup truck). He has said that he's creating a special frame for the artifacts to re-create the closet that held the shrine created by character Ennis del Mar to Jack Twist.

They'll be exhibited a couple of times in LA and San Francisco; then, to see them you'll probably have to be a member of the Velvet Mafia to get an invite to the Bohnert/Gregory home, which happens to be Gary Cooper's onetime home.

William Shatner has donated $25,000 to Habitat for Humanity, and Liz Taylor gave the NO/AIDS Task Force the gift of a fully outfitted mobile medical RV for her 74th birthday. Neither were looking for publicity when they made the gifts. See? We do have people in Hollywood who do nice things. Really nice things.
