Instagratification: 9 Theater Superhunks Making Social Media Their Bitch Comments (0)

When it comes to following hot Broadway performers, Off-Broadway actors and chorus boys, I Joshua-Michael-Brickman-Corey-D-Stewartwouldn't say I'm the most dedicated, but I'm one of the most literal—in fact, I tend to run into them on the street and say hello. [Most of the time, they're thrilled to be recognized and briefly chatted up by a fan, though one luscious blond(ish) boy has looked at me like I'm wearing a vest littered with bubonic plague-laced needles.]

My own Instagram is filled with sexy men about town, and probably a decent number of them are buff theater boys, sure to please all you theater buffs.

With innovations like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, you don't even have to leave your home to ogle men who were—let's face it—born to be ogled.

Without further adieu, and in no particular order, here are just a few of the nonsensically beautiful, occasionally ecstatically exhibitionistic men of the theater who you may want to get social with real fast...

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.

TRUNZO IS DUNZO (2007)

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?

 MADONNA @ Roseland: About to Pick 4 Finalists! 

My closeup footage of Madonna (and Brahim) at Roseland for her oddball tour-dancer selection broke the Internet for an hour, and wound up in my personal Top 10. Loved when she chastised us for taking her picture...what were we going to do? She was 20 feet away from us and in hotpants a stripper would have been shy to try.

ALYSSA EDWARDS: "Baby, honey...we're ALL bitches!" 

RuPaul's Drag Race figures prominently into my most-watched videos. The first Top 10 entry is this one-on-one with Alyssa Edwards, in which she admits everyone on the show is a bitch. I loved her in person! This was before seeing any part of the season. I liked her on the show, too.

SHARON NEEDLES Live (Sorta...Mwah-haha) @ XL 4.30.12 with Amanda Lepore, Susanne Bartsch 

Gothic glamour gal Sharon brought the house down to Hell at XL when she won RuPaul's Drag Race. I was there to capture it, but the musical element means no revenue sharing. Still, fun to watch.

RAQUEL WELCH on Meeting Mae West for MYRA BRECKINRIDGE + Impersonation 

You could've knocked me over with a feather boa when this one went kinda-viral: Who in the world woulda thunk a video on septuagenarian sexpot Raquel Welch would attract attention? But Welch, who was speaking at a screening of her mega-bomb Myra Breckinridge (1970), whipped out a fabuous Mae West impersonation, complete with deep dish, and HuffPo UK picked it up. The rest is herstory.

12-Year-Old Transgender Star of I AM JAZZ Interviewed at GLAAD Awards 

Covering the GLAAD Media Awards, you're forced to decide whether you want to bother raising your camera for every single person who comes by. After all, some of them aren't famous, even they're doing good work. I tend to say yes to everyone. But I almost passed on then 12-year-old Jazz, not knowing anything about her and being uncomfortable having to interview someone so young. I had nothing to worry about—she's a very sweet girl, and if her status as transgender attracted a large number of my 40,000+ views, all the better...you couldn't find a better ambassador for the cause.

Mills Kills Comments (6)

IMovieScreenSnapz001
Frighteningly adorable dancer Andy Mills broke my YouTube last month when I uploaded snippets from his Broadway Bares: Solo Strips number as part of my review. YouTube decided it was too racy even though all he does is briefly bare his booty at the end (how about that Shia LaBeouf penis video YouTube embraced?). 

Now, we'll see if Vimeo is similarly puritanical...

I'll be at Broadway Bares tonight for the midnight show. I was thinking of hitting both shows, but I guess I'm going to stick with one. And today is Folsom Street East, which I'll be checking out for the first time. I guess all of this means that tomorrow morning I'll be attending my own personal blue ball.
