As you all know, I'm pals with Bryan Hawn, whose ass-tastic videos I frequently post here. I find him to be a charming, smart guy with a great sense of humor about himself, as well as an adorable guy with a crazy body. What a combo! Boy Culture “boyfriend” material.
Sadly, even though his videos have been making a great living for him, his end has come to the end of the run (and my endless puns are also looking instantly depletion). However, only his ass will be disappearing.
Please watch his long, deeply personal good-bye video as he announces his decision to leave YouTube. It will give you a whole new perspective — maybe even make you think of him as a person for the first time. Forty minutes, but worth it.
Showing that in spite of his emotional video he still has his trademark goofy humor (and showing how loyal he is), Bryan lovingly concludes his video with a special thank you from his ass to ours:
If you're ass-dicted to him, he's still available at YouTube Red, which is the only place on the platform where he can show off his body in the ways his fans have come to expect ...

Jennifer Holliday says that my article led her to make the decision to withdraw from performing at the inauguration https://t.co/tIJmAuUpfR— Kevin Fallon (@kpfallon) January 14, 2017
I was appalled, as were many of you, when gay icon and Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday was announced as one of the singers for a welcome party during Trump's inauguration, along with right-wing tools 3 Doors Down and Lee Greenwood, and conservaDem Toby Keith (who famously shamed the Dixie Chicks for speaking out against Bush).
Wig jokes and jabs about paying the rent commenced.
Then came word she had not officially accepted.
Then came that infuriating series of quotes from Holliday, in which she framed her performance as “freedom of speech” and said she had “no dog in the race.”
More wig jokes, has-been comments, worse.
Now, Holliday has finally come around. She is not performing. And though I find her initial ignorance shocking and her initial pushback galling, I think her apologetic letter is humble and sincere — even if it's odd to me that it took her allegiance to all LGBTQ people and not her allegiance to all people of color and/or all women to make the difference; she made up her mind after reading a Daily Beast story on how heartbreaking her announced performance was for LGBTQ fans.
She ended her note with: “Thank you for communicating with me, I had no idea that I still meant so much to all of you. Thank you for your posted comments both the good supportive ones as well as the ugly hurtful ones.“
