Alejandro Mogollo's contribution to this month's Like a Prayer 25th anniversary (the album was released on March 21, 1989) is this stunning illustration of Madonna, presumably backlit by burning crosses. Perfection!

Two of my buddies (a friend recently replied to a text in which I used that word with a simple, sarcastic "buddy") and I met up at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in SoHo on Friday night to check out the opening reception for Robert W. Richards's highly anticipated new show, dedicated to the gay erotic art produced to adorn porn mags from the '50s until now. Stroke: From Under the Mattress to the Museum Walls is on view from now through May 25, 2014, and it's a must-see if you're intrigued by erotic art or even if you just fondly remember a time when, minus a man, your best bet at carnal gratification would have been with a non-judgmental glossy magazine.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: *** out of ****
Screening in NYC March 21—23 at Anthology Film Archives, Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton should be required viewing for young LGBT people. Not because he is the most important gay figure in our pantheon (though he's certainly a pioneer in film and poetry), but because he is the type of original character we don't seem to be able to produce anymore.

Sixty years ago, a peek at lust in the dust:
I asked my friends—via Facebook status update—for some sites I never link to and should, and Ugly Ugly Emptiness (Work Unfriendly) was the pick of the litter.
Via Accidental Bear: Artist Zachary Crane by photographer Gabriel Gastelum. If only Van Gogh had looked this good in his tightie whities, he might've had a much easier go of it.
Zach's got a new show opening this weekend. Unfortunately, his undies will remain closed:
He's got a sense of humor, too, teasing his rapidly expanding audience with hints that he may be someone famous, all the while sprinkling his Tumblr (Work Unfriendly) with unique, offbeat imagery, building a catalogue of work that is becoming more illustrative of who he is than any personal information ever could be.
I've been negligent in not interviewing him sooner—I've blogged about him for a couple of years already—because we've become friends. I've met him and stayed with him at his home, and have benefited from his advice and support; it's hard to interview your buddies.
But when your buddies are brilliant artists, you have to step up to the plate...
