ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA Hits HuffingtonPost! Comments (0)

MadonnaPhoto courtesy of Gregory Pace

My pal Greg took the photo above, which is the gayest picture available of me, not counting any unfortunate iPhone snaps taken during the heat of the moment of which I am unaware. So Encyclopedia-Madonnicatherefore, I love it.

I also love the fact that HuffingtonPost ran a piece on my quest to do Encyclopedia Madonnica: 20th Anniversary Edition. I'm shocked they'd plug a Kickstarter, but plug it they did—and I hope it will help.

I'm edging closer and closer to being 50% funded, which is awesome since I'm still less than a week into the month-long campaign.

But once I'm halfway there, I still have halfway to go.

Please consider backing my campaign. Thanks, and thanks for putting up with a couple of pitches a day.

I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Letter: Amazing, Art-Filled, Name-Droppy 1990s Chain Letter Comments (0)

The pages are especially worth a look if you're a comic strip/sci fi fan...mouse over them to see what number they are.

Chain-Letter-6I've held onto the hastily Xeroxed (and re-Xeroxed...and re-Xeroxed) pages of this 60-page chain letter for over 20 years, at first because it's filled with interesting names and drawings (again, not originals...dammit!) by famous artists, and then later because the very concept of a physical chain letter has become so antiquated.

The letters include everyone from Bette Midler to Goldie Hawn, from the late wife of Ricardo Montalban to JFK's press secretary, from publisher Joni Evans to the Hollywood Reporter's George Christy. To me, it's fascinating.

Check out the pages in the gallery above, and some notes on the pages below...

Coming Out Of Hiding Comments (0)

HuffPo comes up with 9 ways in which life has improved for LGBT people in the nine years since the site has been in existence. In other news, my own blog is only six months younger than HuffPo and I've definitely accomplished just as much and made just as much money as...oh, wait.

Any nine-year period that begins with a Bush and ends with none in sight (forget it, Jeb) is a win for us all.

Gay Gratitude Comments (0)

Tumblr_n2xdpbnqxA1qfwa93o1_400Via fukkkres.

Veep Joe Biden made a "forceful" case for gay rights, saying much has been achieved but that there is still "much to be done." I'll go along with all of that.

Boy-GeorgeNOH8 for Madonna

In a semi-related matter, Boy George (who does not hate Madonna after all) makes a very smart point when asked, in this piece, about a straight artist like Macklemore doing a gay-rights anthem. He says he is glad, but not grateful.I think that is the best way to win over the gays who think anyone non-gay who expends some of their social and/or political capital on furthering our cause is some kind of used-car salesman who should be doubted and even rebuffed.

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.

20 7" SINGLE SLEEVES FROM THE '80S THAT BELONG IN A GALLERY (2013)

POLITICS (2005—2013)

I'm a political person and I blog about it a lot. Some of the entries stand up over time, but many are so of the moment it was hard to pull the ones I like best.

TRUNZO IS DUNZO (2007)

Star Magazine implying gay people aren't quite right? Not normal! This took off on several blogs and GLAAD got an apology from Trunzo over it. Some people think it's being "oversensitive," but Jesus...how much clearer is "Man to man" with a huge "NOT" (NORMAL) stamped over it?
