Andy-Gibb

Another visit to Bob Deutsch's vault turns up three vintage teen heartthrobs, preserved forever hot! Above is Andy Gibb (March 5, 1958—March 10, 1988), who died less than a week after his thirtieth birthday. Bob was one of only two photographers allowed on the carpet of the Saturday Night Fever (1977) premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theater, and were also allowed into the after-party. Bob says:

“EVERYBODY was there: Cher, the Bee Gees, 'Laverne' and 'Shirley,' Scott Baio, etc.”

Look Who's Talking!: John Travolta's Ex Spills On Their Affair Comments (0)

John-Travolta-gay-sex-National-Enquirer

Speedo-John-TravoltaDoug Gotterba, who sued for the right to write about his long relationship with John Travolta, is teasing his story in National Enquirer (August 18, 2014).

He tells NE that they met in February of 1981 when Gotterba was interviewed to be Travolta's pilot, then offered a massage (gee, that sounds familiar) that turned into more.

According to Gotterba, Travolta was into threesomes and porn and wanted to make a sex tape, which Gotterba refused. (As hot as I was for Travolta in the '80s, I wouldn't have wanted to be seen naked next to that stud at his peak either!)

Remember the iconic photo of Travolta dancing with Princess Diana? Yeah, Gotterba had sex with him that night, too.

Gotterba eventually left John when the sexual demands became incessant (a good problem to have, sounds very Divorce Court). When the two ran into each other in 1991, Gotterba recalls asking Travolta point-blank if he still liked men or if his marriage to Kelly Preston had sealed the deal for heterosexuality. Travolta allegedly replied:

“Well, Doug, I still prefer men!”

And P.S.: Before anyone moans about digging into Travolta's private life, the same issue of NE contains personal details of the lives of: Drew Barrymore, Richard Belzer, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Courteney Cox & Johnny McDaid, Bruce Jenner, Paul McCartney, Bill Clinton, Adam Levine, Ted Danson, Justin Timberlake, Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Ronson, Ben Affleck, Lindsay Lohan, Bar Refaeli, Sean Connery, Paris Hilton, Donald Trump, Rosie O'Donnell, Justin Bieber, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez, Tori Spelling, Robert Wagner, a slew of dead celebs from Marilyn Monroe to David Carradine, Nicole Murphy & Michael Strahan, Amanda Knox, Eileen Davidson, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Clint Eastwood, Pamela Anderson, Rick Salomon, Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett, Warren Beatty, Madonna, Joan Collins, Britt Ekland, Goldie Hawn, Michelle Phillips, Leslie Caron, Diane Keaton, Diane Sawyer, Diana Ross, Kate Jackson, Carly Simon, Mamie Van Doren, Elle Macpherson, Raquel Welch, Julie Christie, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Shirley MacLaine, Cate Blanchett, Anna Camp, Vera Farmiga, Thandie Newton and more.

Name Redacted Blanked My Blank: Travolta Can Be Sued Over Confidentiality Of MSM Affair Comments (0)

John-Travolta-gay-Douglas-Gotterba

A court has ruled that Douglas Gotterba, who worked for John Travolta for years and allegedly had a torrid affair with him (talk about overtime), has the right to sue over a confidentiality agreement that Travolta's team says should restrain him from speaking (or writing) publicly about any private dealings between Gotterba and Travolta.

He hasn't won...yet.

I hate confidentiality agreements, and I hate when people—especially gay people—reflexively protect powerful closet cases. Yes, yes, there are plenty of people, adults, who are gay and aren't ready to actually be gay, yadda yadda. But by making gayness so special among all other secrets so that we get more upset when it is discussed than anything else, we're just marginalizing ourselves and agreeing with anti-gay people that gayness is some kind of extremely awful piece of information.

I hope he wins and I hope he gets to write the same exact kind of dishy tome countless heterosexuals have written about their heterosexual lovers. It's his life and his story, too—that should not belong exclusively to Travolta forever and a day, and I don't think the contract I saw—regarding Gotterba's old employer, not even Travolta himself—should make that be the case.

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.
