AfterElton has chosen Boy Culture as not only being among the modern movies with the best gay sex scenes, but the #1 modern movie with the best gay sex scene. So cool! So hot.

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...

Boy Culture's main boy (image from here) also won.

I'm not sure how a film that was officially released a year and nine months ago—let alone one made years before that—is just now winning another award, but I'm sure the filmmakers will take it! Had no idea it was even happening.

Boy Culture won the Indie Film Award at The 2008 Glitter Awards, held last night at The 3a8411504b9eab6984352440 Hookah Lounge in Hollywood. The Glitters were devised to honor films with gay and lesbian content, and this particular award is for "a U.S. independent gay themed motion picture...for a filmmaker, who with scarce resources, or a limited budget, has been able to bring his/her vision to the screen."

As he did at Outfest (in 2006!), Derek Magyar also took home Best Actor. Which means he won an award, not that he's on the down-low with Bryce Johnson. Though Bryce was actually there and won Best Actor In A Supporting Role for the film Freshman Orientation.

Cute Bryce won for a truly wretched, IMHO, film.

The ceremony—which featured Boy Culture alumni Magyar, Jonathon Trent, Darryl Stephens and Q. Allan Brocka as presenters—will be seen at imdb.com in January.

All the winners (The Bubble won big; it was a good movie with a ridiculously bad ending), in the order in which they were awarded (with presenters in parentheses):
