WOW! Boy Culture Nominated For A WOWIE! Comments (0)

WOWIES-1I'm so grateful to James St. James and everyone at World of Wonder for nominating Boy Culture in the category of Best Blog or Website AKA The Dear Electronic Diary Award.

Please Vote for Boy Culture Now!

I'm very proud to be in such esteemed company. NewNewNext is a fully staffed, fully functioning LGBTQ blog, Paper and Paste and Billboard are also legit sites attached to imposing brands. Huffington Post is one of the top news sources on the planet. Teen Vogue has been killing it this year with incisive political coverage. Hello Giggles I'd never heard of until now, but it's an elaborate blog with many contributors.

I'm. One. Guy.

So I'm extra-grateful for the good company!

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.

Do I Know You From Somewhere? — An Evening With Patrick Leonard, Madonna Maestro Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-09-13 at 11.10.07 AMTuesday night was the long-awaited An Evening with Patrick Leonard show at Joe's Pub in NYC, featuring prolific songsmith Patrick Leonard, the man behind some of Madonna's biggest hits and most soul-baring compositions.

He's 61 and a musical genius, but this marked his solo debut!

It was a nightmare for me professionally (to the extent that being a blogger is any kind of profession) due to a series of unfortunate photographic events not worth reliving, but I did get some stuff and the show itself was bliss, a total gift to fans of Leonard's immaculate work with Madonna. As generous as his 13-song set list was, he definitely left us wanting more.
