Michael-Sam-Out

Michael Sam is looking scary-hot on Out. Great interview, though his remembrance of meeting his boyfriend Vito Cammisano really doesn't make me like the latter:

“We didn’t start off as huge fans of each other. I went up to him to ask if he was OK, and he started cursing at me, screaming, ‘Fuck off—do you know who I am?’ I told him I didn’t care who he was. We didn’t speak again for two years.”

Just the fact that Cammisano would ever say that is enough to turn me off. Maybe he's changed?

Bomer On Being OUT Comments (0)

June July 2014 - Matt Bomer LO

Matt Bomer is the coverboy for Out (June/July 2014), in which he says he first read The Normal Heart when he was 14 years old. Advanced! On his decision to be on the record as out, he says:

“I’m so thankful to have been born in the times that we live in. I felt a responsibility to Simon [Halls] and to our kids to be able to live with integrity and not have some strange split psychology of This is who my dad is at home, and this is who he is to the public. That trumped any type of professional repercussions that it could have had. And – not by my own volition or choice – I’ve been playing exclusively straight characters for the first 10 years of my career. Whatever happens from this point on says a lot more about the business and society than it does about me.”

Bomer also expresses surprise that his official coming-out, in 2012, was such a big deal:

“I frankly did not think people would be that interested. I certainly didn’t think it was going to be on the CNN ticker.”

The Abnormal Art: Matt Bomer Transformative Role Comments (0)

Matt-watermarkx633

According to the June/July 2014 cover story of Out, Matt Bomer's beauty almost lost him his plum part in HBO's upcoming TV event The Normal Heart. Kramer worried Bomer was too pretty to play “Felix Turner,” who is stricken with AIDS in the early years of the disease.

But he of course won out.

Bomer tells Out:

“You’re really lucky as an artist if you get a role that changes you as a person. It taught me how to access myself on a completely different level as an artist. And it blew my mind in terms of the level of unconditional love between 'Ned' and 'Felix'—my goodness, if these people could incorporate this into their lives, under their circumstances, why can’t I?”

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.
