Cut-Off Date Comments (1)

Cheyenne Jackson's porn-themed play The Performers closed after just seven performances (which, appropriately, sucks), but it still got him a page in Essential Homme (November/December 2012). In the piece, he says of his need to watch what he wears in public now that he is recognized:

"When I take my dog out at night I have to remember not to wear my old-man cut-off shorts or the shirt with nine holes that my husband begs me to throw away."

I think it sounds like a nice outfit, no?

GLAAD You Came: The 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards Comments (8)

Bernadette PetersAgeless Bernadette Peters

The 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Marriott Marquis last night was a fun time once I decided I was for sure not dashing to Connecticut to support a friend's event starring Mickey Rooney. I'd already committed to GLAAD and couldn't quite wrap my mind around three hours (both ways) of travel for an hour of notoriously curmudgeonly Rooney fielding questions about his career and undoubtedly griping about the filth that passes for entertainment today, but I was happy to hear later that Mickey's gig was a treat in the end.

José was my camerman (which removes a lot of the stress; having to stick a video camera directly into someone's face is awkward, especially when they're not performing sexual acts and high on whatever people get high on these days).

He and I and everyone I ran into were kvetching about how tired we were, didn't wanna do this massive red carpet, etc. But it wound up being rather cool.

I was next to a really fun girl whose hair, nonetheless, kept creeping into my face and all over my body (she had a mane on her). At one point, it worked itself under my MEDIA sticker and tugged it partially off like one of those cartoon vines. She apologized and I accepted, but I have enough hair all over me.

IMG_2291Next to Alice Ripley

On my way to work, I stumbled into the Broadway Flea Market—I forget about it every year, then always enjoy it so much when I find myself at it.

This year, I arrived with $3 in my pocket, which is deadly considering the tables IMG_2302 sagging with fun ephemera, autographs, old magazines, mementos and other junque. Making my way through, I spotted a silver-looking box that was engraved "Jane MAME Angie 1966-1968" and immediately regretted not having money. The dates matched up to the original Broadway production of Mame. I went to get some, came back...and it was gone. So annoyed. But then I just got it in my head that it wasn't gone and dug around a bit and sure enough it had been buried under a bunch of worthless VHS cassettes. It was mine for $5. Not sure, but it seems like a gift to an original cast member, and it says "Reed & Barton The World's Finest Silverplate" on the bottom. Angela Lansbury could be the "Angie"—she did the show from 1966 to 1968. A Jane Connell was also in the show. Intriguing.

Out With The NewFest: My One Night Stand With Cheyenne Jackson Comments (2)

IMG_1152I'm not shiny, I'm just beaming—Cheyenne Jackson does that for a body

No, the title is not the answer to some convoluted Crazy Days and Nights blind item.

SafariScreenSnapz001 Last night I was invited by my pal John to cover a reception and screening of One Night Stand at NewFest: The 23rd Annual New York LGBT Film Festival. I support NewFest (which has supported me!) so I was definitely considering going. But when I was told one of the film's stars, Cheyenne Jackson (whose underpants photos spiked my traffic back in the day), would be in attendance and would be available for press, I knew that a One Night Stand with Cheyenne Jackson even without an interview was a big yes—NSA!

I showed up to SVA1 in Chelsea just after the reception began and was able to meet the film's directors, Elisabeth Sperling and Trish Dalton, and several people who appeared in this documentary that chronicles the making of four 15-minute original musicals, start to finish to showtime, in a 24-hour period.

PreviewScreenSnapz001With (L to R) Jenkins & McKay

IMG_1128 The talent involved was "out"standing (even if the film itself is not explicitly gay in any way)—along with Jackson, the musicals had enlisted the (sometimes reluctant) participation of actors, composers, playwrights and directors including Rachel Dratch, Alicia Witt, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Richard Kind, Mandy Gonzalez, Tracie Thoms, Nellie McKay, Michael Longoria, Benj Pasek (pictured with me) & Justin Paul, Roger Bart, Rinne Groff, Gina Gionfriddo, Lance Horne, Gabriel Kahane, Tamara Tunie, Scarlett Strallen, Theresa McCarthy, Capathia Jenkins, Marnie Schulenburg, Jonathan Marc, Robin Goldwasser, Ted Sperling, Trip Cullman, Maria Mileaf, Sam Gold and probably others.

The fun part was that none of the people in the plays had yet seen the documentary SafariScreenSnapz003 about their harrowing/edifying experience, and in fact a number of them expressed to me that while they'd signed releases they'd been rather hazy that an actual documentary was being produced. I bet quite a few would have thought twice about participating considering how poorly they might have come off on film. (No one came off poorly.)

Boy Culture Turns 5: My Favorite Posts Comments (23)


Img_0736As of midnight tonight, it will be exactly five years since my first post. It's hard to imagine it's been that long, and a lot's changed—the tone and subject matter are different, how often I post, my limits (no nudity in a couple of years due to ad constraints). I've devoted a crazy amount of time and money and energy to this blog for a very small financial return (you couldn't guess low enough), but it's always rewarding to have this forum with which to express myself, keep my writing ability fluid, perhaps influence a couple of people here and there, share obsessions with strangers (in both senses of the word) and learn new things.

6wzn3lxTake That's Howard...can you believe this happened onstage at a pop concert?

Here are some of the posts that were most important to Boy Culture's history. For the uninitiated, some of the oldest ones refer to Boy Culture, the movie made of my novel; I started the blog at the time Boy Culture was being filmed as a way to keep people informed of the progress...and it all snowballed from there.


Some of these posts are milestones when it comes to the hits they provided but most are filled with original writing and/or photography and video and are just the posts of which I'm proudest. I hope you'll take some time to click on them and send their links around to others—and some time is what you'll need...

Now The World Is Ready For You, And The Wonders You Can Do Comments (4)

November 2010 - Cheyenne JacksonCheyenne Jackson's just the latest canary swallowed up by Glee

Reading Out (November 2010)'s interview with out icon Cheyenne Jackson, I see I wasn't the only one with a painful Wonder Woman fetish back in the day:

"Even from a distance of 25 years, the memory of his weekly Lynda Carter fix gives Jackson goosebumps. A few years ago, his father found an old woodburning art kit of the kind once popular among boy scouts. The idea was to use a woodburning pen to etch around a suitably masculine image on a piece of wood, in this case a muscle car. Jackson, however, must have lost interest part way through. 'It was as if I started it and was, like, "Eh, I don’t want to do that." And then I turn it over, and on the other side, I’d freehanded a portrait of Wonder Woman. Not only that, I’d added watercolors. I had her blue undies and her red thing. I just thought that was a perfect encapsulation of me as a child.'"

Jackson also talks about registering for a domestic partnership with his longtime significant other Monte Lapka, just in case reading about Wonder Woman made you fall in love with him a little.
