Dustin Lance Black speaks to The Village Voice on his upcoming When We Rise epic miniseries, which chronicles the entire gay rights movement.

Choice quotes:

He claims not to have been totally shocked Trump won:
 
Most of the family I love are still very religious and live in parts of the country where equality isn't welcomed — and wasn't welcomed historically.
 
He is aiming the series at general viewers:
 
When I was growing up, ABC was the station we trusted. I thought, wow, this might be an opportunity to talk about LGBT stories in a way that reaches the people I grew up with. And wouldn't be just preaching to the choir. When I was writing it, I was thinking about a handful of aunts and uncles and cousins, and what it is they don't know yet, and the stories they haven't heard yet.
 

He sought diversity in the creation of the project:

It's called When We Rise for a reason. If you look at my writers room, it was gay and straight and black and white and men and women. And we hashed out those struggles in the room.

More here. When We Rise airs over four nights starting February 27 on ABC.

 
The Gay '90s Comments (0)

Yet another gay photo project, this one museum-worthy.

Acclaimed photographer Richard Renaldi has released a photo book entitled Manhattan Sunday that chronicles life in the early '90s after the gay clubs closed. The images look phenomenal — so much so that there will be an Eastman Museum exhibit in NYC starting January 21:

A compelling story Renaldi told The Guardian:

In the summer of 1992, in the early hours of a Sunday morning, Richard Renaldi and his boyfriend Eric left The Sound Factory, the celebrated nightclub on Manhattan’s 27th Street, to walk home through Chelsea, on the west side of Manhattan. As they walked through the city, the pair was approached by an older man named Larry.

Larry, they discovered, would leave his Staten Island home in the early hours of Sunday morning and travel to Chelsea. There, he would silently watch gay men as they left New York’s world-famous nightclubs. 

Larry had never come to terms with his sexuality. He came of age in the 1960s, when sodomy was still a felony in every US state, and was still scared of identifying as a homosexual. So he would watch, from a safe distance, the men as they left the clubs – high, familiar with each other, still sweating from the dance floor. 

“He stood outside the doors of the nightclubs on Sunday mornings, looking in,” Renaldi remembers today.

Larry was observing a generation of gay men that, in comparison to his own experience, was out, proud and liberated.

Check out his book here.

He Can't Help Letting The Door Hit His Ass On The Way Out: In Emotional Vid, Bryan Hawn's Booty (Sorta) Retires From YouTube Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-15 at 1.53.33 PM(Video still via Bryan Hawn)

As you all know, I'm pals with Bryan Hawn, whose ass-tastic videos I frequently post here. I find him to be a charming, smart guy with a great sense of humor about himself, as well as an adorable guy with a crazy body. What a combo! Boy Culture “boyfriend” material.

Sadly, even though his videos have been making a great living for him, his end has come to the end of the run (and my endless puns are also looking instantly depletion). However, only his ass will be disappearing.

Wait, what???

Please watch his long, deeply personal good-bye video as he announces his decision to leave YouTube. It will give you a whole new perspective — maybe even make you think of him as a person for the first time. Forty minutes, but worth it.

Showing that in spite of his emotional video he still has his trademark goofy humor (and showing how loyal he is), Bryan lovingly concludes his video with a special thank you from his ass to ours:

Dear Youtube, We have been through so much together. I will always have a special place for you deep inside my heart. I can’t express the joy I have felt on this journey will all of you. It has been an amazing ride. I never knew I could take things to this big of a level. Because of your explosive support, I now have my own exciting channel where I can be seen on a paid platform. But sadly, I have to say goodbye to my public audience who has stuck with me in the stiffest of times. I will miss every single one of your faces, but you can always come visit me on my new platform BryanHawnRED. I would like to thank every blog and magazine that has shared my work including Boy Culture, Instinct Magazine & DNA Magazine that have posted almost every single one of my videos. And every person across the world that has shared, liked, favorited, and talked about my videos. I will love you forever.

If you're ass-dicted to him, he's still available at YouTube Red, which is the only place on the platform where he can show off his body in the ways his fans have come to expect ...
