PHOTOS: Alan Cumming Debuts As A Photographer In New York’s Public Toilets

Apr 12, 2012 by

According to our sources, actor Alan Cumming does not have a problem with authority. Editors at Headmaster magazine, the art publication for the “sophisticated man-lover,” assigned Cumming to go around documenting public restrooms as a homoerotic homage to filmmaker Peter Greenaway’s 1985 documentary, 26 Bathrooms.

Cumming turned his assignment in a week early—on Christmas Eve, no less!—and even received some extra credit (hint, hint). 

You know what they say, beauty is in the eye of the iPhone holder: Alan toured some of New York’s seediest gay bars and upscale cabaret rooms, peeking inside the men’s rooms to capture Instagram-style snapshots of good boys getting pissy.

We have gotten our hands on a couple of the shots just for your viewing pleasure. If you want to check out the too-dirty-even-for-Queerty batch, all these photos and more appear exclusively in the third issue of Headmaster, on sale now. And if you live in New York, you have a chance to meet and mingle with the man-loving artists and editors of Headmaster tonight at the magazine’s third-issue launch party taking place at King’s Cross in the Lower East Side.
