My Last Resort Comments (0)

Inndulge-Palm-Springs

When you're as body-conscious as I am (and at times, for no good reason), I almost think going to a clothing-optional resort would be a good idea just to shake it off. A friend recommended a nude beach in Hawaii (which is great, because if it becomes a disaster you're still in Hawaii!), but I like the looks of my new advertiser, INNdulge in Palm Springs, California.

Plus, I'm a sucker for a pun.

Have you ever gone to a clothing-optional resort of beach?

Judy, Judy, Judy: Joey Luft Remembers Mama Comments (0)

Joey-Luft

From July 11 through July 13, Joey Luft (b. March 29, 1955) is appearing at an evening of songs and stories dedicated to and all about his late mom, Judy Garland (June 10, 1922—June 22, 1969).

If you didn't know he could sing, he can't—the show will include re-mastered Judy performances and a Q&A from Luft.

Judy-Joey-LornaOne story he previewed for the L.A. Times involves watching, of all things, a hockey game with his mom and his sister Lorna Luft (b. November 21, 1952) in bed one day:

“My mom was kind of tired and she looked kind of frustrated.' I said, 'How do you feel?' She looks at us, walks over to the TV and she goes, 'How do I feel? See that hockey game? You know the puck? That's how I feel.' And she walks off. Then we started laughing.”

Um, it's not that funny!

Sounds like a can't-miss presentation, whether it turns out to be touching, fun, moving or just plain odd.

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.
