Cambridge University Raises LGBT Pride Flag in Honor of Sir Ian McKellen's Honorary Doctorate
24 Jun 2014
Sir Ian McKellen, a Tony Award-winning actor, has received an honorary doctorate from Cambridge University.
"I am now an honorary Doctor of Letters at Cambridge University UK," wrote the actor on his official Facebook page. He also posted two pictures of him at the institution. "My old college St Catharine's celebrated by flying the rainbow flag."
The event coincides with LGBT Pride events in many cities.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
