I went to L.A. this weekend to meet with my Web series partners (news on that coming in the near future) and to attend the 30th anniversary of my friends Michael & Scott. 

 

Porn star memoirs by Jack Wrangler (1984). #gay #movies #memoirs #books #firstedition #shirtless #gossip #boyculture

A post shared by Boy Culture Blog (@boyculturedotcom) on

On the flight out, I was reading a first edition of The Jack Wrangler Story, or What's a Nice Boy Like You Doing? (St. Martin's Press, 1984), the cheeky autobiography of gay-porn star Jack Wrangler. It turned out to be a fortuitous choice, as early in the book, there is a lengthy description of a childhood birthday party of his in Beverly Hills, a stone's throw from the home where my 2017 party was happening. (It's a great, breezy, candid time capsule of a read if you can get your hands on it. Wrangler died in 2009 at 62, while his improbable partner Margaret Whiting died at 86 in 2011.)

The party was lovely — outdoors, peopled by sunny chatterboxes and littered with their fabulous art collection. One highlight was when a couple of my autograph-hound buddies very kindly pointed out that the mysterious Oscar-nominated neighbor Michael had teased me with was standing right next to us: None other than Nancy Olson of Sunset Boulevard (1950).

What was so shocking about meeting Nancy, who was lovely and very happy to briefly discuss her claim to fame, was that I had days earlier shown the movie to a 19-year-old friend in advance of our seeing the musical. To run into her unexpectedly within the same week was uncanny.

Nancy is 88 and looks spectacular. She warned that she is an old lady before we took our picture (I reassured her by saying I was, too) and said she thinks movies today that play well on the small screen have a leg up at Oscar time since nobody makes the effort to see screenings in theaters. It was a thrill and a half, to be sure.

Also thrilling were the drop-dead beautiful men serving as waiters. Turns out they came from Runway Waiters, which is why they all looked like models. 

The rest of my trip was pretty low-key, but I managed a quick bite (of food) at the Abbey, where I snapped the establishment's #RESIST sign:

I could probably live in L.A. ...!

This Is Painful ... And It Will Be For A Long Time: Chelsea Handler Reacts To Hillary's Crushing Loss Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-11-10 at 11.12.49 AM(Video still via Netflix)

Chelsea Handler welcomed the wonderful Sen. Barbara Boxer to her show Chelsea for a day-after-the-election postmortem that wound up awfully emotional.

This is a deeply touching time for me, watching Boxer tear up while contemplating writing to Hillary to console her over her loss.

Boxer, struggling to be optimistic, offers many words of wisdom, with the upshot being:

You pick yourself up ... and you fight even harder for our country, 'cause it's ours! It's ours!

It's very hard to find the inspiration at this point, but I am still seeking it.

California Democrats Against Safer Sex In Adult Film Act Comments (0)

The California Democratic Party voted on Sunday to oppose the so-called Safer Sex in Adult Film Act, Logos-APAC-FSC-300x228a ballot initiative which would allow private citizens to sue porn actors and industry workers over films in which no condom is visible.

Eric Paul Leue of Californians Against Worker Harassment said in a statement:

This is a tremendous, unprecedented victory. We applaud the California Democratic Party for recognizing the many problems with this dangerous initiative. No worker in any other industry can be sued and harassed by members of the general public, and this initiative would open adult performers to stalking, extortion and profiteering

I'm all for safer sex (including PrEP), but this measure seems extreme. The California Republican Party is already on record against it, as are AIDS Project L.A. and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
