And follow Boy Culture: Generation X HERE!

Also, if you're a gay man with a lot of any of the following to get rid of, I may be interested, as I'm building an archive:

Issues of gay magazines 1980s and earlier (especially local weeklies like David from Florida, Michael's Thing, Where It's At), including porn (Jock, Torso, Honcho, Mandate, Inches, Playguy and other Mavety titles in particular)

Gay ephemera 1980s and earlier (matchbook covers, flyers, invitations)

Gay photography

Gay illustrations

Gay Polaroids

Vintage Madonna, especially 1980s and earlier, only uncommon items like local publications, tickets, flyers (NYC early '80s)

Open to more. I sometimes am in the market to buy things, and am sometimes only interested if it's a donation. But I'm always interested in hearing.

Just putting it out there!

As longtime readers will know, my series sequel to Boy Culture — which is now entitled Boy Culture: Generation X — has been a long time coming. Now, at long last, it's here!

Reminder: Check Out My OnlyFans Comments (0)

No, I don't get naked — that I give free to 1 lucky random gentleman every few years. Rather, it's a site devoted to my photography. I haven't shot lately (refer to previous sentence), so I need some new models, but what I've got, I've got a lot. Check it out! It's cheap and a nice way to tip your blogger.

Madonna & Janet — Whether Or Not You're Nasty Comments (0)

Madonna-madonna_americanlifeI will never forget the first time I heard the song, online! (GIF via GIPHY)

Big news regarding the two most important women music artists of the '80s (do I need to add an arguably?):

(1) On a personal note, I'm proud to have been interviewed by Billboard for Sydney Urbanek's thoughtful take on the controversial “American Life” music video, pulled 20 years ago. I think it's a very compelling song and an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink video that deserved to be seen then and now.

(2) Janet Jackson is dipping into her personal collection to sell off what one can only assume will be some outrageous stuff! This kind of divestment usually happens when a star is at the end of their career and/or life, so for Janet to do this now is a rare treat. Don't sleep on it — these things can be once-in-a-lifetime. Head over to Julien's for the scoop, and if you're broke ... practice some Control!

Gay Porn Is Gay History: Plus, Sam Staggs Publishes DID YOU SLEEP WITH THE MODELS? Comments (0)

Gay boyculture Honcho August 1981 copy(Image via Honcho)

When I announced the death of the gay-mag empire Mavety Media in 2009, it was a wildly successful post. It seemed almost every gay man remembered seeing Honcho, Torso, Inches, Playguy and/or Mandate at some point.

Now, so many years later, I'm wrapping up my interview phase on a project related to Mavety Media's magazines, to gay print porn history and to Mr. Mavety himself.

If any of you reading this know someone who worked in print porn, was a photographer, illustrator, model, etc., please reach out at [email protected].

Also, if you are a gay man with a stack of older gay publications or ephemera you're done with, I'd be interested in adding them to my archive. I'm most interested in copies of the above titles that I do not have, and of similar/competitive titles. I'm also quite interested in local periodicals like Michael's Thing, Where It's At and the like, invitations, posters and of course original illustrations and photography. If you have things you haven't been able to decide how to rid yourself of, I might be the right repository!

On that note, DO NOT miss reading the new memoir by Sam Staggs, who was once an editor of the Mavety titles, which he has cheekily titled Did You Sleep with the Models? You can read three chapters at his Substack, here.
