Where The Girls Are: Why #BringBackOurGirls Deserves Your Attention Comments (0)

BringBackOurGirls Michelle Obama

If you've never heard of Boko Haram or the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, check out this piece from The New York Times by Nicholas Kristof.

With nearly 300 girls kidnapped and still missing—possibly being auctioned off as wives for $12 apiece to a militant fundamentalist-Islamic band—the cause is finally snowballing, capturing the attention and interest of a wide variety of public figures and countries. First Lady Michelle Obama has joined the cause, which would seem to be the kind of issue anyone can agree is a terrible affront to freedom.

Hotel Hell: Hollywood vs. Brunei Comments (0)

Brunei

The Sultan of Brunei's recent institution of sharia law in his tiny, oil-soaked country—including stoning people to death for the crime of homosexuality—continues to rile Hollywood: The annual Night Before event, usually held at the Sultan-owned Beverly Hills Hotel, is switching locations.

As has been pointed out, no countries have chastised Brunei for this decisive step back toward the (literally) Stone Ages.

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.
