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.

The Gays Love Her: Christine Quinn Touts Her LGBT Support Comments (0)

Windsor-quinn_blog400
Many gay people I know are, at best, skeptical of Christine Quinn as a mayoral candidate, citing her allegiance with Mayor Bloomberg and some legislative failings  from a progressive standpoint.

But Quinn is not about to let her core drift. She'll appear today at 11:30 on 35th Street and Fifth Avenue alongside victorious DOMA warrior Edie Windsor and Robbie Kaplan, unveiling a list of over 1,700 LGBT people who are backing her up. Let's call them her Quinnions. The list includes: Neil Patrick Harris, Cheyenne Jackson, Lance Bass, George Takei, Harvey Fierstein, Urvashi Vaid and Melissa Sklarz.

When Quinn marches in today's NYC Gay Pride Parade, she'll be doing it with 500 backers, not the least of which are AFER's Rob and Michelle Reiner, Bruce Cohen and Tim Gunn.

I guess she's saying that poll-surging Anthony Weiner can suck it when it comes to gay support.
