Fine-arts photographer and FIT prof Ron Amato will be signing copies of his book The Box at the Strand in NYC on May 1 (7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m).

The book represents evolution in the history of physique photography, one in which the male nudes are affectionately intertwined — not what you'd have seen in the classic beefcake magazines of yore.

The book is out the same day as the signing. Check it out here.

Too bad you can't see this guy's Ever-Lasting Gobstopper — couldn't find a host for the video that was okay with peen. But watching him strip to a Willy Wonka tune had the same effect as a Fizzy Lifting Drink.

This happened at Amanda Lepore's party for the release of her book Doll Parts.

I Love Lucifer Comments (0)

Kenneth Anger, who turned 90 this year, is still alive — thanks to a deal with the devil?

The occult-obsessed author of the tawdry, shamelessly muck-racking Hollywood Babylon (1965) is now offering an official bomber themed to his inarguably amazing short film Lucifer Rising (1972).

Get yours here.

You may be thinking that marrying the devil with a rainbow won't work wonders for the LGBTQ cause, but he's no GLAAD. Still, Anger accomplished some astonishing things for queer visibility and expression. I, for one, am still blown away by his avant garde short films, starting with 1947's Fireworks. The idea of an early gay filmmaker inspired my (by now quite old) second novel, Blind Items: A (Love) Story.

Good luck wearing this bomber and not getting beaten up — maybe by some gays!

Who Dunne It? — Michael Musto Snoops Around Dominick Dunne's (Gay) Love Life Comments (0)

Erik-MenendezErik Menendez (Video still via CBS)

I always figured Dominick Dunne had to be gay, in spite of his marriag eand children, and now Michael Musto — via an interview with Dunne's biographer Robert Hofler — is renovating the late crime and society writer's gilded closet in Out.

One interesting aspect of Dunne's history is that he apparently shared a loving relationship 41QlfVlMBCL with Frederick Combs of The Boys in the Band (stage and screen) fame. I'm semi-obsessed with that play and its stars (there are three left alive, Combs not among them), so was surprised I never knew this. Says Hofler to Musto:

A number of people talk about him being the love of Dominick’s life. There was a character Mart Crowley based on Dominick—Alan, the one who’s fighting with his wife and you’re not sure of his sexuality.

So Alan was based on Dunne, and Dunne even produced the play!

Even more fascinating, Dunne — who became even more famous by doggedly covering the Menendez Brothers' trial — was apparently quite smitten with Erik, as were, well, a lot of people:

There’s a very weird interview he kept coming back to, and [Dunne] would say, “I’m sure that Jose Menendez called Erik a faggot and a queer and all these horrible things, and it reminded me of my father, who used to call me a sissy.” He said, “I so identified with Erik” and said, “We were both stutterers and had abusive fathers,” but he’d never take that next step and say, “And we were both gay.” He never dropped that other shoe, which was the big point of identification. That’s where all this stuff was coming from and he’d never go there. He always used the word “sissy”. Worse than that, relatives said Dominick should have been a little girl. It’s such a sexist thing because little girls are called a tomboy and that’s a kind of a compliment. There was some doubt as to whether Dominick was beaten by the father. The mother said it wasn’t true. Dominick said he had welts on his side from the beatings. It was the ‘30s and it’s possible the school wouldn’t take the action they would today. But when the Menendez boys talked about the scars from the abuse, Dominick kept pointing out, “Why didn’t anyone notice their scars?” But in his own report about his own abuse, he never said, “Why didn’t anyone notice why MY thighs were swollen?” He did have empathy, particularly for Erik because he was attracted to him. I found a letter he wrote to Erik in prison. He said, “I liked the screenplays you wrote. You’re a talented artist. I think you were misled by your brother.”

Oh, brother! (The hot one.)
