To promote the hot new Joe Gauthreaux remix of “Ain't No Mountain High Enough” (a song I can't hear enough, in any form), the legendary Diana Ross, 73, made a surprise visit to WeHo's gay bar The Abbey Saturday night.

 Keeep reading to watch her getting down with some of the city's finest go-go boys ...

Kevin Lee Light aka Kevin Short aka #WeHoJesus — a man who looked a lot like old-school perceptions of Jesus Christ you'd see in paintings, and who was a staple of the West Hollywood scene — has passed away.

He was 57 years old.

A post on Facebook by the official City of West Hollywood Government account noted that Kevin apparently passed away “a brief illness.”

Over at Wehoville, more details included:

It is unbelievable to watch some of the footage showing the wildfires around L.A., including one raging near the Getty Center. There are highway closures and dire warnings that all the elements are there for the fires to rage on, nearly unabated.

Footage here and incredible video after the jump ...

Contract Playa: A Review Of SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD Comments (0)

T-scotty-bowers“I created the rainbow in Hollywood.” — Scotty Bowers (Image via Altimeter Films)

Five years ago, I posted a review of the book Full Service, the as-told-to story of Scotty Bowers, a 21430294_1815779352046499_9204368091529911051_nHollywood gas station owner who claims to have become a procurer for some of Hollywood's biggest names from the '40s onward, including Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, George Cukor, Rock Hudson and many more.

Along with hooking them up with sex partners, he also claims to have had sex with many of them himself, including Bette Davis, Walter Pidgeon and both Cary Grant and Randolph Scott.

Gore Vidal on Scotty Bowers

The comments on my review were largely critical, blowing him off as a liar in spite of the support of Gore Vidal and other serious people who wanted us to know Scotty was the real deal.

I prefer this take: 

Now, director Matt Tyrnauer has shot a compelling documentary on the man of 1,000 facials, and I think Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood far surpasses the book as both art and documentation that Bowers was probably every bit as busy as he boasts ...

BOY CULTURE Turns 12: 50 Links To Celebrate! Comments (0)

ThirstyBoy of my dreams
It's been another year of Boy Culture, and that makes 12.

Img100 copy 2 Img100 copy 3I've spent a decade and change of my life posting think-pieces, don't-think pieces, sexy butts, sexy bulges, infuriated protests, news of the day, news of the gay, surreptitious photos, self-promotion, self-deprecation, humor, pathos, dead celebrities, celebrities you thought were dead and what evidence of what passes for my powers of observation. I've acquired fans and anti-fans and momentarily interested passers-by.

The first blogs I encountered (I was a late bloomer) were Perez Hilton and Pink Is the New Blog ... and I barely understood how to read them. The concept of scrolling down for information, which is now becoming passé, was so new to me, they just looked like a jumble of information.

As I became accustomed to the idea, I noticed Towleroad — a specifically gay blog. Color me inspired, and by the end of 2005, when I was living in misery in a temporary apartment across the street from the dream apartment into which I would soon move (and eventually lose), I spent my free time figuring out Typepad. I was off-the-charts thrilled when I became adept at uploading images and formatting captions. I had previously experimented with Blogger, but now I was in business. Posting some old Blogger pieces and plunging ahead with all my thoughts on Madonna's new album Confessions on a Dance Floor, Boy Culture was born.

Why did I start this blog? (Besides as an excuse to disseminate images of guys in their skivvies.)

Mainly, I thought I could promote the theatrical release of the movie of the same name, which Allan Brocka had co-adapted and directed from my debut novel (new edition coming). I was proud of the movie and wanted to help get the word out, so I posted about each screening in-between quirky, topical entries on music, movies, Madonna and me. Just this past year, I used my blog (and Kickstarter) to help get the word out about the sequel to that movie — to which you can still donate here. I would also eventually lean on Boy Culture to help create awareness of Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, which was a huge hit.

Child Tortured, Beaten To Death, Allegedy By Mom's Boyfriend — Because He Seemed Gay Comments (0)

Palmdale-gabrielA 6'2", 270-lb. security guard is currently on trial for the torture and beating death of his girlfriend's 8-year-old son, and the reason the prosecutor thinks he (and the boy's mom) committed the crime is that the child seemed “gay.”

This happened in Los Angeles.

We have a long way to go ...
