The-Normal-Heart

The Hollywood Reporter's story on the it-took-forever-to-make making of HBO's The Normal Heart is fascinating and complete, filled with Streisand and Kramer dish.

Now, can someone please make a movie out of Faggots?

Gloria Leonard, Sultry Former HIGH SOCIETY Publisher, Dies @ 73 Comments (0)

Gloria-LeonardLooking like Morgan Brittany meets Linda Dano

Sex_appeal_Gloria_LeonardGloria Leonard, a marquee name in the porn biz who went on to be the publisher of High Society (one of my favorite porn finds when I was a kid!), has passed away at 73.

I think her lasting contribution to the culture, for better or for worse (and I was lovin' it back then), was her unflinching publishing of sexy and/or nude images of A-list stars taken from films. Back then, the Ann-Margrets of the world assumed if they showed some skin in a movie, that's where that glimpse would live—always and forever in context. Not so, and never again. Barbra Streisand was among the stars who sued Leonard's magazine in vain.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

Star Magazine implying gay people aren't quite right? Not normal! This took off on several blogs and GLAAD got an apology from Trunzo over it. Some people think it's being "oversensitive," but Jesus...how much clearer is "Man to man" with a huge "NOT" (NORMAL) stamped over it?

Fabulously giftted Alejandro Mogollo is the guy behind the below uncanny likeness of moi-self that you might've seen on my personal Facebook page (you should also "like" Boy Culture's official Facebook page). Thing is, he isn't even a professional illustrator! He is a graphic designer, however, and his talent is pretty obvious.
