Wolverine_on_rock

The gay-marriage ban in the state of Michigan is unconstitutional. Now, all of my "home" states (Michigan = birth, Illinois = college, New York = lived here 22 years) have fallen into the equality column.

Bill-RauhauserFive greasy pieces

Street photographer Bill Rauhauser, 95, discusses his tactics for surreptitious photography in this Slate piece. Known for capturing Detroit in the '40s through the '80s, he shies away from the city these days, preferring to remember it as the "viable city" it once was.

Gym-speedo

Brad Cieslowski, a 29-year-old bodybuilder, was asked to leave the Novi Lifetime Fitness gym in Michigan for wearing tight white swim trunks that were deemed "inappropriate" by staff. Allegedly, several members had complained about, well, his member.

Brad is calling it sexist, the gym is countering that he was too exposed and should have been wearing two layers (!).

I say: Just stop staring at it, people, and focus on your own bodies. That's why you're there.

Meanwhile, in New York, thousands of guys are getting blowjobs in the every gym locker room.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.
