Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Derek Jacobi as young’uns! In Cambridge.

Captain Picard, Magneto, Professor X, Gandalf, The Master, Hamlet, Richard III, Duke of Windsor all are characters we own to them.

Their friendship started way back in college time. There is not so much to say about their amazing career and support for the LGBT+ community. The kiss on the red carpet of McKellen and Stewart it is part of our history. Jacobi and McKellen were Grand Marshalls for New York Pride, and all of them participated loudly in gay rights support.

A super funny story characteristic for these people which remains boys at 80 years old. At the ceremony for the marriage of Stewart and his actual wife in Las Vegas, the master of ceremony was McKellen. After a while, they realized McKellen forgot to get a Nevada license so the marriage was not recognized. Of course, that was corrected after all.
