BROADWAY BARES: STRIP U Makes The Grade! Comments (0)

As always, enjoy my report on Broadway Bares, and feel free to chime in with names for anyone I failed to ID. All my Facebook pics are here. Thanks!

Broadway Bares, the annual, one-night-only, two-shows-only burlesque event that raises cash for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, was back for a 27th installment on June 18, accepting thousands of new students in a revue entitled Strip U. It raised a total of $1,568,114 for the cause.

No SAT, no shade: Strip U was the kind of baby-got-back-to-school experience that promised to keep *Scanyou up many sleepless nights in the future — and not with nightmares about forgetting your locker com or being late to class.

Overall, this show — directed by Nick Kenkel — was the apple of my eye among recent installments of Bares, an impressive return to form that passed with flying colors while demonstrating its mastery of diversity (race, age, body size, gender) and of the core skills that make these shows so much fun in the first place (dancing, humor, exhibitionism).

The only area in which this Bares could be called lacking when graded on a curve against the best ones of all time was star power, a commodity that has been on the wane for years. But who needs big-name stars when the show has so many homegrown stars, (anatomically) gifted hoofers more than capable of owning the stage? (Okay, it would've been fun to see Bette Midler's girls. But we've seen them before.)

Giphy-3Locky Brownlie goes for extra credit!

We arrived at the Hammerstein Ballroom two hours early for the midnight show, putting us right near the front of the amorphous line of young gay guys in aggressively cute shorts pretending they didn't even try with their outfits and enough drooling daddies that the show's traditional placement on Father's Day was, as always, humorously literal.

Legendary COLT Studio Founder & Male Physique Photographer Jim French Dies at 84 Comments (0)

Via BobMizer.org: Jim French, the renowned male physique photographer known for his hypermasculine imagery of muscular and sometimes hairy men has died at 84.

French's partner, Jeff Turner, confirmed French died in his sleep June 15.

French's wildly popular macho aesthetic, rendered in photography and drawings, made his work among the most sought-after in the field of erotic art.

After being discharged from the military in 1957, French moved to NYC, where he worked as a fashion illustrator and summered on Fire Island, surrounded by exhibitionistic men in stark contrast to the conservatism of the times. Doing erotic work under the pseudonym Arion, he began 61YbnwWUlyL a mail-order company called Luger, after the German pistol.

Luger was a hit, but French sold his share to a partner and launched COLT Studio in 1967. The business boomed immediately. As a photographer, he often shot under the name Rip Colt, choosing models who defined his taste so thoroughly that a COLT man became easy to envision — brawny, muscular to the point of swollen, hung, glistening, idealized.

French eventually left for California.

Along with his successes as an artist, in 1972 he published the quintessential male physique 41UVL6DZyuL collection Man. He went on to publish many more books, including Another Man; Jim French Men,; Quorum; Opus Deorum; Masc.; The Art of Jim French; The Art of the Male Nude; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor: Jim French Polaroids (pictured); and Jim French Diaries: The Creator of Colt Studio.

In his final years, French marketed prints of his classic imagery.
