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.

TRUNZO IS DUNZO (2007)

Star Magazine implying gay people aren't quite right? Not normal! This took off on several blogs and GLAAD got an apology from Trunzo over it. Some people think it's being "oversensitive," but Jesus...how much clearer is "Man to man" with a huge "NOT" (NORMAL) stamped over it?

Ellen DeGeneres is going as Nikki Minaj for Halloween...and it's perfection even without blackface!

A friend and his buds galpals did an impressive First Wives Club:

Steve Grand (in 2009, but recently unearthed) was not only sexy and skintastic as a football jock, but also, add a paper crown and he was a part of a fairly brilliant Where the Wild Things Are crew:

Dolly-Parton-afroBum rap.

Not since Rhinestone have I questioned Dolly Parton's sanity. But Jesus, who in the hell wrote the rap lyrics for Dolly Parton to, uh, perform on Queen Latifah's talk show?

"Hey, Oprah, don't feel scorned/

Nobody's afro is bigger'n yours"

It's such a bizarre, racially...uncomfortable...and unfunny bit of tragedy. It really makes Dolly look stupid as hell instead of her usual carefree, cartoon self.

Oh, well...one dumb thing in a 40-50-year career ain't so bad.

Must watch...

It's meant to be a silly roommate joke, and yet I wonder how none of Latifah's handlers thought this would also scream "lesbian lovers"...

Queen-Latifah
The above is from Us (September 23, 2013). The idea that this closet case would submit to a "25 Things" for the mag (in which she is willing to discuss plenty of personal things, just nothing gay) inspired me to ask a friend to alter #22.

Out Soon? Comments (1)
Gay
Globe (February 11, 2013) has a list of stars it thinks are most likely to be next to say, "I'm gay." This list includes: Charlize Theron, Joe Simpson, Jessica Lange, Bradley Cooper, Queen Latifah, Michelle Rodriguez and Ryan Seacrest. I think a couple of those people aren't gay, a couple wouldn't say they're gay under penalty of death and the others probably will do so eventually.
