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.

Looking To Jesus For Answers Comments (27)
SafariScreenSnapz002
Oh, dear, is Jesus Luz a gay Madonna fan or her boyfriend? Now he's getting into the GaGa vs. Madonna game by Tweeting a link to that so-so video comparing the two.

It's probably very innocent on his part, but if I were Madonna, I would rein in anyone in my camp suggesting GaGa is copying her because (A) the argument is 100% positive for Madonna until Madonna, Inc., engages in it—then it makes her look petty; and (B) why level charges of "copying" when it could lead to a backlash of people pointing out all of Madonna's own countless "homage" moments? (IMHO, many of Madonna's individual pieces of work could be deconstructed for blatant inspirations, but her overall career is still that of an original.)
