Clay Aiken For Congress Comments (0)

Clay-Aiken

Years ago, before he came out, I did not like Mr. Clay Aiken. When I spoke on the phone with him during his Idol days, he was so annoying I'll never forget it! "This [second] season is more about talent," he sneered. Oof.

But over the years, he's really shown himself to be a stand-up guy, and he's always been concerned with people and charitable causes. I think coming out has freed him from whatever defensive tension made him come off as a jerk at times.

Best of luck to him!

Watch his announcement after the jump...

Michael-Grimm

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-New York) made a fool of himself—and, frankly, committed a crime on camera—when he threatened a NY1 reporter with physical violence ("I'll break you in half"). Grimm, who'd been quizzed on the SOTU address, took exception to the journalist asking one question at the end regarding an investigation that is plaguing the congressman. Perfectly fair question, but watch Grimm's reaction and tell me he shouldn't be charged...

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.

**2008 first one 6a00d8341c2ca253ef00e54fdddbfd8833-800wiMy first "Guydar" post from 2008.

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.

Not Her Type: Stenographer's Unholy Meltdown Comments (0)
Stenographer
Stenographer Dianne Reidy lost her ever-lovin' mind and approached a dais during the shutdown vote, ranting about how Jesus Christ was being mocked. People are fond of saying that Christians don't fly airplanes into buildings, but considering the escalation in craziness lately, I keep hearing an unspoken "yet" on the end of that sentence...
