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.

Worlds Apart: Journey Fundraises For Romney/Ryan Comments (3)

Journey Neal Schon Journey's Neal Schon with the person he's lovin', touchin', squeezin'—Michaele Salahi

Journey (aka, the group calling itself Journey in spite of Steve Perry's absence) is said to be making $500,000 for a Mitt Romney fundraiser in Florida. Romney's spox says no money was paid, and Journey says no political statement was intended.

Someone's lying, because there is no reason to do the fundraising gig if not for love or money.

This is as annoying as when Chaka Khan performed for Bush. She at least regrets that. Also hated when Ricky Martin gamely shook his bon-bon with Bush for his inauguration. And let's not forget Sophie B. Hawkins—actually, scratch that, I've forgotten her already.
