Stephen Guarino Is A Comedy God Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-08-02 at 2.29.34 PMStephen Guarino is attached to our Boy Culture: The Series project, and we couldn't be luckier to have him in any capacity — he's just one of the funniest guys I've ever met.

In his novella-length Instagram post — essentially an ask for pledges, but publishable as an e-book — he displays a fraction of his wit. It's worth reading, even if you already gave at the office ...

Patti-LaBelle-Last-Unbroken-Heart“I just want all of my gay fans to know that I will always be here for them the way I am: honest, to the point, and loving my gay fans even more and more each day,” Patti LaBelle says. “I mean, when I think about it, the gay fans are some of the reason — one big reason — I'm still standing, 'cause they loved me when other people tried not to. Everybody always says, 'What makes gay men like you?'... I know that love has lifted me up for many, many years.” More from Ms. LaBelle, including her rumored Aretha beef, plus other hot links of the day after the jump ...

Big News — BOY CULTURE: THE SERIES! Comments (0)

FINAL MAIN IMAGE

Ten years after the theatrical release of Boy Culture — the movie directed by Q. Allan Brocka that was adapted by him and Philip Pierce from my 1995 novel of the same title — I am proud to announce a Kickstarter for a sequel!

Click Here for the Kickstarter!

Boy Culture: The Series is already written. It's a funny, edgy follow-up in six, 15-minute installments that catch us up on the rocky romance between cold cookie X, an emotionally stunted hustler, and his fed-up, vanilla partner Andrew, 10 years after the events of the original film. Each installment will tackle a different aspect of gay life in 2017, from aging to race to monogamy.

I am proud to announce that I co-wrote this project with Allan, marking my first screenplay.

Boy Culture: The Series will welcome back the amazing Darryl Stephens as Andrew. He was such a valuable part of the movie and is so lovely in person — couldn't be happier to welcome him back.

Check Out Darryl Stephens on Instagram Here!

In the role of X, we have cast Matthew Wilkas, a terrific actor (check him out in Gayby) who just wrapped The Pride (great play if you ever get a chance to see it) in L.A. You may also know him as the boyfriend of Gus Kenworthy — they recently shared the cover of Out.

Check Out Matthew Wilkas on Instagram Here!

As one of the leads, we've got the incredibly sexy Matt Crawford aka Daddy Crawf of Insta-fame. This kid is going to nail the part he plays. More on that in due time.

We've also signed up one of my favorite people, the talented Steve Grand for his acting debut! Mr. Grand is playing P-Town through August:

And we're lucky to have Stephen Guarino, one of the funniest people alive. I've known him for years and was happy to bump into him at the BearCity 3 premiere in NYC his week.

More casting news as we get closer to our goal of $50,000.

So far, all the guys playing gay characters this time around are ... drumroll ... actually and openly gay! What a concept!

I write Boy Culture the blog almost for free; the few ads I have don't nearly compensate for the time spent, and the only occasoin on which I've approached you guys with my hand out was when I launched my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20 Kickstarter years ago.

Now, I am humbly asking you to please do either or both of these things:

(1) Donate to the Kickstarter! It's here.

(2) Share the link to the Kickstarter on all your social media.

THANK YOU for your consideration!

One Psychological Drama Desk Awards After Another ... Comments (0)

DANIEL CRAIG*Autograph hound bothering me and my date Daniel Craig (Image by Mike Summers)

I was gonna go to D.C. this weekend, or even plan a camping trip, but they seem to be falling through.

Instead, I had my getaway right in NYC: My pal Mike had an extra ticket to the Drama Desk Awards Monday evening, as well as the after-party, so I was only too happy to snap it up.

We attended with our other pal, also Mike.

Did I mention that Mike #1 is 10X the starfucker I am, and that Mike #2 is 100X the starfucker I am?! Having two people seeking star pic-withs is ideal, because if you grab someone, it's easy enough to then switch positions and stars are usually happy to oblige. With three, it becomes overwhelming.

So, I did not go for everyone they did (Danny DeVito, Amy Ryan, many nominees), yet still had fun and wound up with some nice photos.

We found Randy Rainbow (so nice, with Mom as his date) before the carpet, but then parked where the stars would go from carpet to theater so the guys would be able to grab as many quick pic-withs as possible.

I must say my spotting abilities were on point — I went from tiny Danny DeVito to towering Tommy Tune, and helped them spot Kate Walsh and other famous people they knew but couldn't place. (Though I was hopeless on  theater people.)
