BOY CULTURE Turns 11 Comments (0)

IMG_4503Guy, with iPhone—why not take all of me??? (Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

Today is my blog's 11th anniversary.

I never dreamed I'd make it another year after 10, and it's been a rough year, blog-wise, behind the scenes. I feel like the blog has solid content lately, though, and I'll definitely keep it going as I continue to see through a major project in the next six months.

But while I pour a lot of myself into the blog, it can't last forever. It's such a time drain for the money I get back, even if it also gives me a lot of pleasure. And free theater tickets.

I welcome any constructive input on what could make it better in the comments below—and FYI, I'm considering a cosmetic overhaul, too.

Of the blog, not of me, though I could use more hair (on my head) and a few other tuneups.

Happy birthday, Boy Culture!

Exact Opposite Of The Boyfriend Experience: Rentboy's CEO Indicted Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-01-28 at 2.13.26 PMImage by Matthew Rettenmund for BoyCulture.com

Jeffrey Hurant, the CEO of Rentboy.com, has been indicted on one charge of promoting prostitution and money-laundering charges. You will recall that back in August 2015, he and several Rentboy employees were arrested in a Dept. of Homeland Security (huh???) sting.

As Queerty notes:

We hope there’s a rational ending to this developing sideshow, but things aren’t looking great.

If you agree with this malicious prosecution, I'd be curious to know why. “It ain't legal” isn't good enough, especially if “420 friendly” is in your Grindr profile. If you're against this turn of events, feel free to contribute to Rentboy's legal-defense fund.

After the jump, you'll find a nine-year-old (!) video from a Rentboy.com-sponsored release party for Boy Culture (the movie) ...

Ian McKellen On The Oscars: Complaints Are LEGITIMATE Comments (0)

Large

I'm with Ian McKellen, who says he feels empathy for people of color who are noting Oscar's homogeneity because openly gay performers are disregarded as well. But perhaps even more than black perfumers, I would argue that the (total) exclusion of out gay stars from winning Oscars is due more to the lack of roles in which the tiny number of out gay stars are offered. Black actors do have it tough, but you can name more than 10 black performers, so their exclusion is more noticeable and therefore a bigger deal.
