George Michael to
lend Lennon's piano for peace exhibit

George Michael will lend the piano on which John Lennon composed his famous 1971 anthem "Imagine" to an antiwar exhibit in Dallas.

The exhibition, organized by Michael's longtime partner, Kenny Goss, will open at Goss's gallery December 5 and will run until January 13.

"We decided to do it in Dallas, because what better place is there to reiterate how important peace is?" Goss told Reuters. "Dallas is [near President] George Bush's home. It's a great place to remind people how important it is that we find peace."

The show will focus on peace and war, illustrating three areas that have seen tumult: Vietnam, Beirut, and Afghanistan. Renowned war photographer Dan McCullin's work will be displayed through the gallery as well.

Michael announced he was gay in 1998 after being arrested for engaging in a "lewd act" in a public restroom in Beverly Hills, and he has had subsequent run-ins with the law in London on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs.

He has indicated his intention to legally register his relationship with Goss this year.

Michael is currently on a sold-out tour, his first tour in 15 years, and he launches his new album, Twenty Five, November 13. (The Advocate)
