A Collection Of BROADWAY BARES Posts Comments (0)

BROADWAY BARES (2008—2013, 2015)

Boy Culture turns 10, so look for a massive missive on some of my favorite-ever posts today. Until then, here's a fun-the-fun-of-it round-up of my Broadway Bares coverage.

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 12.53.02 AMI had never so much as seen a male stripper when my friend Jason pushed me hard to come to Broadway Bares with him. Manhattan's annual burlesque charity show for HIV/AIDS was a real eye-opener (and an effective wallet-opener, too). I quickly became enamored of, well, most of the guys on the stage. I wound up becoming a fixture at the shows (is that a..."good" thing?), and my coverage has delighted and, occasionally, horrified the participants. (The kindest take-down notice I ever got was when Guto Bittencourt took me to coffee to politely ask if I might consider removing a video of him in the nude. Some others were a little more direct, but no one was ever rude or freaked out.)

Unfortunately, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS spent an inordinate amount of time fighting me—they would never credential me, and when they did finally invite LOTS of press to cover a Solo Strips event, I didn't make the cut...and their marketing manager threatened to have me kicked out while demanding I stop taking photos. I skipped a year and got over it.

Anyway, I think most of the participants are, or should be, proud of their bodies and their artistic contributions to this unique event.

Following: All of my coverage of Bares and of its related Solo Strips events, roughly in chronological order...

I Really Had The Write Stuff: The Roots Of EM20 Comments (0)


People often ask about how I put together Encyclopedia Madonnica 20. While it was no small feat, the availability of a speedy, existing Internet made this updated version a snap compared to the past.

The first one, written over 20 years ago, required that I read through all my tear sheets and create index cards with quotes, notes and possible entries. I can not believe it, but I threw them away. I have saved everything over the years, yet I threw away that little slice of my own history?

Still, looks like I missed a few! I found the above cards in my old EM PR file. Look how quaint! Handwriting.

You can buy Encyclopedia Madonnica for $60 flat here, or visit me at Rockbar on November 6 and get yours in person for $50!
