Kiss The Boy Comments (5)

Tom-BradyTom Brady plants one on his dad

Men are kissing other men a lot more lately. Even the kind of men who aren't just using the kiss as a necessary step toward oral sex.

Blast_lmnt_article I remember during the Lou Pearlman days, whenever I'd meet a new boyband, I'd have to do this weird, manly-but-friendly half-hug/half-handshake. The only boybander who ever kissed me on my cheek was straight arrow Matthew Morrison, and that was how I knew he would never stay in LMNT but was instead Broadway-bound. (Yes, this was unnecessary braggadocio.)

Straight Arrow Comments (1)

Matthew_Morrison_unbuttoned_shirt_HArticle It's Matthew Morrison's straightest-ever interview (he's been on hetero-damage control ever since he was ambushed by an Elle journalist who assumed he is gay), but Details mitigates that with his gay-friendliest photo shoot. Meaning he's shamelessly shirtless.


Keep reading to see the entire shoot, including scans from the magazine that were not featured online...

Boy Culture Turns 5: My Favorite Posts Comments (23)


Img_0736As of midnight tonight, it will be exactly five years since my first post. It's hard to imagine it's been that long, and a lot's changed—the tone and subject matter are different, how often I post, my limits (no nudity in a couple of years due to ad constraints). I've devoted a crazy amount of time and money and energy to this blog for a very small financial return (you couldn't guess low enough), but it's always rewarding to have this forum with which to express myself, keep my writing ability fluid, perhaps influence a couple of people here and there, share obsessions with strangers (in both senses of the word) and learn new things.

6wzn3lxTake That's Howard...can you believe this happened onstage at a pop concert?

Here are some of the posts that were most important to Boy Culture's history. For the uninitiated, some of the oldest ones refer to Boy Culture, the movie made of my novel; I started the blog at the time Boy Culture was being filmed as a way to keep people informed of the progress...and it all snowballed from there.


Some of these posts are milestones when it comes to the hits they provided but most are filled with original writing and/or photography and video and are just the posts of which I'm proudest. I hope you'll take some time to click on them and send their links around to others—and some time is what you'll need...

Teacher/student confluence

Did you catch Glee's Rocky Horror Picture Show episode last night? Right off the bat, I must admit—I never liked the movie. I saw a live show in Chicago 15 years or more ago and that was only okay to me, too. Further, I've not been a big Glee fan. So a marriage of two gay-positive, pop-culture phenoms should have been enough to help me shake my reservations. Instead, it was just two times the shrug.

's Matt Morrison is on the campaign trail for Democrat Lee Fisher's Senate bid in Ohio.

He has also spoken out against anti-gay bullying in schools—even alluding to the idea that Ryan Murphy may want to address it in future episodes of the series.

Tonys, Tonys, Tonys Have Done It Again Comments (6)


The new Hayes Code: Straight-acting 

So I watched the Tonys, which weren't bad if you ignored some of the actual winners. It just seemed like the absence of the critics—who no longer get to participate in voting—was deeply felt considering the fact that most of the winners were movie stars, and most of the honored shows were crowd-pleasers. (That said, I've heard Scarlett Johansson's performance was amazing and Denzel Washington seemed a shoo-in either way.)

I mean...Memphis? I doubt it.


Sean Hayes makes a big deal out of it 

I thought Sean Hayes did a pretty good job hosting, though I could have done without the two unveilings of his package and was rolling my eyes at his kiss with Kristin Chenoweth just because it was so expected that he'd do something to answer to Newsweek.

I love these shots from Us (June 7, 2010) showing the GLEE cast in high school...especially cute MattMo (above).

Just A Little Brit Comments (8)

I'm no fan of Britney Spears (or Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston or Jennifer Lopez), but does Lady GaGa really have enough songs to warrant a full episode of Glee? I think they should stick with the greats when and if they even do single-artist episodes. Readers of Life & Style (May 17, 2010) are rooting for Britney. She's got plenty of songs, but are most of them really what the musical-theater types on Glee should be singing?


Meanwhile, Matt Morrison—who sniffed at Madonna when her episode was coming down the pike—is sniffing much harder at the Britney idea, telling Us (May 17, 2010), "I hope our show doesn't go along that route."

Matthew Morrison Makes Her Wet Comments (2)

He's not gay and doesn't dig Madonna (sorry if that's redundant), but Glee's Matthew Morrison looks good jogging and is confident enough in his own sweaty sexiness to...stop everything and pose with a fan while dripping wet??? Brando never would've done that. (And Brando was at least bi!)

Material Boys & Girls Comments (3)

100412-27 More Madonna/Glee tidbits, this time a photo shoot involving the cast for TV Guide (on sale April 15). Jane Lynch rocks the cone bra with staggering conviction as Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison recreate the "Material Girl" video (itself a recreation of Marilyn Monroe's "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" number).


My pal Matthew Morrison, probably still smarting from the gay rumors, somewhat awkwardly says about Madonna's place in his life:

"I wasn't a big fan of Madonna; never got into it. As a heterosexual guy, she didn't have much impact on my life."

Matthew! Straight men love Madonna's music, too. I've already done my part in dispelling rumors that he's gay by telling everyone he never laid a hand on me when we worked together.
