Tom Ford Dishes First Gay Experience, Disses YSL
Tom Ford’s A Single Man trailer might have been “de-gayed,” but his interview with The Advocate certainly wasn’t. Now Ford is dishing with The Advocate about his film and his early life experience, both professionally and personally. He shares everything from working with Yves Saint Laurent to his first gay sexual experience after a night at Studio 54!
“I never knew I liked men sexually until Ian came into my life. And he wasn’t just my first male kiss. The first blow job I ever gave anyone was the one I gave to Ian in the back of a cab on the way home from a night at Studio 54 as we made our way down to where he lived on Eighth Street and Fifth Avenue. Of course, it was a Checker cab.”
“But being at Yves Saint Laurent was such a negative experience for me even though the business boomed while I was there. Yves and his partner, Pierre Bergé, were so difficult and so evil and made my life such misery…I’ve never talked about this on the record before, but it was an awful time for me. Pierre and Yves were just evil. So Yves Saint Laurent doesn’t exist for me.”
