All The Age: A Review Of PRETTY OLD Comments (0)

Pretty-Old-pageantShe's 92, and yes, she is the type of lady to say, "Ninety-two years YOUNG."

BOY CULTURE RATING: ***1/2 out of ****

I have developed a reputation as a fan of the old. I'm obsessed with how we age, and how we handle aging. I also find it incredibly uplifting when people who are over the hill have found that it's not so bad over there...and that there may even be more hills to climb.

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.

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.

Donald Trump's Minions On Parade Comments (0)

Thomas-Roberts-Miss-Universe

UPDATE: Roberts made a rather passive statement on gay rights on the red carpet in Russia, which are unlikely to travel much within Russia (let alone elsewhere). In his comments, he started by saying he thinks the Russian anti-gay law is "vague," then said it's still discriminatory. Starting by ceding that it's "vague" provides cover for Russia. He at this point can be said not only to have done NOTHING to help, but also to have done a lot to hurt gay rights: He worked for anti-gay Trump; he worked on a production whose goal, in part, was to make Russia look fabulous; and in so doing he provided cover for his employer and others when it comes to the Olympics being held in Russia. And oh, yeah, his comments about having a "successful" personal life didn't really matter since his husband was not on the carpet and NO mention of Roberts being gay was made on the show. In fact, the show, which never fails to incorporate of-the-moment controversial question in its Q&A section, didn't include any questions about Russia's anti-gay laws. Roberts totally blew this. He is far too self-involved to be trusted on this issue. Shameful.

**********

Thomas Roberts and Mel B have just walked out on the Miss Universe stage in Moscow. Within the next 90 minutes or so, we'll find out if Roberts has any pro-gay tricks up his sleeve or if he truly believes that simply by being there, being pretty, and having "successful" personal and professional lives, that'll really show 'em that gay is A-okay.

Would Mel B host a pageant in a country with laws against black people? Would correspondent Jeannie Mai work for a pageant in a country with anti-Asian laws? Would either of them happily travel to Saudi Arabia and observe all anti-female laws, all in the name of a job? Fair questions, I think.

Other stars involved with the show who seem not to be getting any flak: Panic! At the Disco and Steven Tyler.

Look for the Q&A portion of the show to for sure include gay content, one way or another.

Donald Trump is laughing all the way to the bank, and will make lots of fresh money to use in his blowhard, anti-gay agenda.

Reach Out And Touch Faith Comments (0)

Thomas Roberts
Thomas Roberts scolds gay people who object to his taking on the hosting duties of Miss Universe, saying we are supposed to "have a little more faith in me."

As I've said before, his employer is the same network that has a huge financial stake in Olympics coverage and is airing Miss Universe, so any faith I had in his ability to judge the optics is out the window.

It remains to be seen what he does once on the show, but his defensive remarks aren't winning at least one critic over.
