BOY CULTURE Turns 12: 50 Links To Celebrate! Comments (0)

ThirstyBoy of my dreams
It's been another year of Boy Culture, and that makes 12.

Img100 copy 2 Img100 copy 3I've spent a decade and change of my life posting think-pieces, don't-think pieces, sexy butts, sexy bulges, infuriated protests, news of the day, news of the gay, surreptitious photos, self-promotion, self-deprecation, humor, pathos, dead celebrities, celebrities you thought were dead and what evidence of what passes for my powers of observation. I've acquired fans and anti-fans and momentarily interested passers-by.

The first blogs I encountered (I was a late bloomer) were Perez Hilton and Pink Is the New Blog ... and I barely understood how to read them. The concept of scrolling down for information, which is now becoming passé, was so new to me, they just looked like a jumble of information.

As I became accustomed to the idea, I noticed Towleroad — a specifically gay blog. Color me inspired, and by the end of 2005, when I was living in misery in a temporary apartment across the street from the dream apartment into which I would soon move (and eventually lose), I spent my free time figuring out Typepad. I was off-the-charts thrilled when I became adept at uploading images and formatting captions. I had previously experimented with Blogger, but now I was in business. Posting some old Blogger pieces and plunging ahead with all my thoughts on Madonna's new album Confessions on a Dance Floor, Boy Culture was born.

Why did I start this blog? (Besides as an excuse to disseminate images of guys in their skivvies.)

Mainly, I thought I could promote the theatrical release of the movie of the same name, which Allan Brocka had co-adapted and directed from my debut novel (new edition coming). I was proud of the movie and wanted to help get the word out, so I posted about each screening in-between quirky, topical entries on music, movies, Madonna and me. Just this past year, I used my blog (and Kickstarter) to help get the word out about the sequel to that movie — to which you can still donate here. I would also eventually lean on Boy Culture to help create awareness of Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, which was a huge hit.

Awesome Halloween Costumes — With An Accent On The Hallowqueens! Comments (0)

Above: Gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy made a great Dooneese Maharelle aka Kristen Wiig's/SNL character and his boyfriend Matt Wilkas was the kind of dead scout that would make you consider necrophilia at Heidi Klum's annual party.

I'm digging Adam Levin's weird drag look, if only because it offers a good look at Adam Levine: 

I don't love hunting, but Carrie Underwood's Mike Fisher could get captured by the game:

Jonathan & Drew Scott of Property Brothers were hot properties, showing plenty of Wonder-ful shoulder:

But I'm a fan of a good — or a silly, or a HOT — costume or 100, so keep reading for tons of (mostly non-famous) examples of dudes in their Halloween togs ...

BOY CULTURE Scrapbook! Comments (0)

Boy_1When Boy Culture hit the film fest circuit in 2006 (we played Tribeca, Outfest and many, many more), it was a dream come true for me — a movie based on my novel was actually being seen. In 2007, it went to the next level, achieving an international run in movie theaters.

Now, in the final days of the Kickstarter meant to rev up a 10-years-later sequel — Boy Culture: The Series — I'm looking back at a few pics from the first go-round ...

Steve Grand's (Not-So-) New ATTITUDE About His Body Comments (0)

19932145_847889108713583_3544403266894823424_nSteve Grand has been called every name in the book for wearing a Speedo so often, mostly because his detractors remember the one time he became annoyed with the gay media fixating on his old Speedo poses in a way that felt insulting. He flared up, he apologized and later fully embraced his sex-symbol status — but some commenters Won't. Let. It. Go.

Now, he's speaking out in Attitude about the issue, and really puts a fine point on it ...

6-PACK — Steve Grand Comes Clean On Past Drinking Problem + Ryan Edge Flaunts Skin + Tyler The Creator's Boyfriend?! + Sen. Corker Thumps Trump + More On Helping Benjamin Bradley + PHYSIQUE PICTORIAL Revival! Comments (0)

STEVE-GRAND-PR-768x1024Singer Steve Grand — a friend of mine set to make his acting debut in Boy Culture: The Series — had granted a frank interview to Attitude, in which he talks about his dependence on alcohol 18 months after quitting.

“I woke up in my own urine in the bed of a person who I don't even think particularly likes me. But he was the only person who came up in the recent messages on my phone so was the one they called, and he took care of me,” he recalls of his lowest moment. “That was the last straw for me.”
