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.

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.

Following His Lead Comments (0)

Steve-Grand-Instinct-cover
Steve Grand lands the cover of Instinct (October 2013), and is proclaimed a leader among the "leading men of 2013."

One of the topics they'll cover seems to be the "straight therapy" he talked about being in from the age of 13 to the age of 18. In the past, he's condemned the therapy while supporting his therapist, something a few outspoken activists have taken issue with. Grand clarifies, perhaps once and for all:

Screen Shot 2013-09-30 at 4.37.45 PM
I don't know what more one could want from him, but I'm sure those who have it in for him (God damn his cute face!) will let us know.

“This is such a touchy subject to talk about. I don’t want to misrepresent what happened, but I also don’t want to endorse anything or take away from others’ experiences,” Grand says. “I was not in conversion therapy. I was seeing a Christian therapist, who, among many beliefs, believed I would be happier if I didn’t live life as a gay man. He did not shame me. He did not make me feel bad for what I felt. But he did believe I would be happier in life if I lived as a heterosexual, and that part is indeed harmful. If you’re doing anything but affirming someone’s sexuality, you’re harming them. Especially a child. - See more at: http://instinctmagazine.com/article/steve-grand-all-american-man#sthash.EXKkNIDi.dpuf
