NetFlix Gets Gayer
I posted about this last week, but here’s more about the Ryan Murphy deal with NetFlix.
Trump Administration: New Transgender Policy
This link is about a new military policy for transgender people that the Trump administration plans to announce sometime this month.
The plans were revealed in an order from the US District Court for Maryland, which had been ruling on a discovery motion for the government to turn over information relating to the policy.
It’s a long piece and it gets into a lot more detail. It’s worth reading.
I’ll post more as it comes in.
Woman Mistaken For Transgender At Walgreens Bathroom On Sunset Boulevard
A Walgreens employee told a woman she couldn’t use the bathroom because the employee thought the woman was a trans woman. The woman was not a transgender person, but she was told she looked “too masculine” and she couldn’t use the bathroom.
She did not fight to use the female bathroom and instead used the stall in the male bathroom.
Here’s more. Walgreens has updated its bathroom policy to be trans friendly.
I think it’s interesting that it didn’t happen in a small town somewhere in a “red” state. This happened in California, on Sunset Blvd. Which means it can still happen anywhere.
10 Olympic Guys Take Of Their Clothes
Here’s one where Gus Kenworthy is pretending to be innocent.
Watch below as ten U.S. Olympians — including Gus Kenworthy and a bobsledder — seductivelyawkwardly strip while testing out some cheesy lines (spoiler: there are many variations on “coming first”):

75,000 US Teens Face Conversion Therapy
This number is staggering. And, this is also another reason why I feel so strongly about protecting gay kids, and why I don’t stop talking about movies like Call Me By Your Name where there is a barely legal 17 year old teen having sex with an older man. Kids in general, but especially gay kids, seem to be the most vulnerable these days in many different ways. And that bothers me.
This bothers me, too.
You can check it out, here. It is a fascinating detailed article you should read. The numbers get even more intense, with respect to adults who’ve already had conversion therapy. They also get into laws preventing conversion therapy, which seems to be the only way to stop it. Because I highly doubt common sense is going to work.
Gay Dating App Wants to Stop Dick Pics Shallow Preferences
I’m not so sure how this is going to work. I really don’t know much about this topic because I’ve never used a hook up app. I’m married. Married people don’t do that (well, most). But it should be interesting to watch what happens.
From what I gather, a lot of guys are getting sick and tired of nothing but dick picks and negative shallow preferences. They’re looking for something that’s more real, and this particular hook up app seems to want to give it to them. Today I blocked a group of gay guys on Twitter for sharing a photo of barely legal teens posing naked. So I think there could be a market for something like Chappy.
Guy Benson Says He’s Not A Self-Hating Gay
I’ve never been quite sure what that term meant…self-hating gay. Or, as I’ve also heard, self-loathing gay.
In any event, here’s why Benson is defending himself…
Here’s the rest. There’s a fascinating comment thread. Not joking. I learn more there than from the articles sometimes.
Call Me By Your Name and White Straight Privilege
I’ve posted about the barely legal 17 year old boy angle that has garnered criticism for the movie, Call Me By Your Name, and I’ve posted about the critics who point out that Call Me By Your Name is anything but a gay film or a gay romance, but this review is something a little different.
Narcissism is Elio’s problem but it is also the film’s failing. Instead of powerfully exploring gay passion as in this year’s and, Guadagino’s movie is regressive. It harkens back to a pre-Stonewall sensibility in which closeted emotions are inflated due to an out-dated, introverted and mostly inept sensibility.
I think that’s a pretty accurate description. You can read the rest here. There’s more, including a clever comment about the title.
All Gay Cast of Boys In the Band
There was as time when the only gay content out there was a play like Boys In the Band. I’ve seen the old movie several times, and it’s fascinating to watch. It’s the essence of gay culture, then and now. It’s intense, it’s real, it’s dialogue and character driven. It shows you what life was like. Once you start watching you can’t stop.
Here’s an example…an example that straight people will never fully understand.
“What I am, Michael, is a 32-year-old, ugly, pock-marked Jew fairy, and if it takes me a little while to pull myself together, and if I smoke a little grass before I get up the nerve to show my face to the world, it’s nobody’s goddamn business but my own. And how are you this evening?”
The play is being revived, with an all gay cast that includes some of your favorites.
The 50th anniversary finds a lion’s den of gay actors at the helm of the classic bitch-fest: Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, and Andrew Rannells. Co-stars will include Robin de Jesus, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington and Tuc Watkins. The 50th anniversary production will be directed by Joe Mantello at the Booth Theatre.
You can read more about this, here. There’s an excellent trailer. I really want to see this. But mostly, it’s nice to see gay people taking control of their own culture for a change.
James Franco Is No Weinstein
This is an interesting link to more information regarding the allegations made about James Franco. And right now they are only allegations. I don’t believe in jumping to conclusions when it comes to something as important as this.
Two women who have accused “Disaster Artist” star James Franco of inappropriate behavior appeared on “GMA” this morning, where one said the actor “created exploitative environments” but is “absolutely not a Harvey Weinstein.”
You can check it out here. You have to read it all. I’d like to know one thing. Just who defined what is and is not considered “inappropriate behavior?” Because if there is a set definition for that, I’d like to see it.
Aaron Hernandez Book Bisexual Rumors
There’s a new book out by James Patterson about Aaron Hernandez that looks interesting.
the NFL-star-turned-convicted-killer who committed suicide in his jail cell last year and sparked bisexual rumors for allegedly leaving a note for his…

Pig Inspired Meanswear Collection
I have to admit that this even stunned me a little. And it takes a lot to do that. However, it’s a form of expression that is focused on fetish, which I believe is valid.
Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck premiered his 2018 fall menswear line called “Worlds of Sun & Moon” this week and it was a gangbang of latex, hazmat-inspired tops, bottoms, mascs, er, masks, hoods, gloryholes, and pigs.
I don’t want to sound too elitist here, but when I see people on social media complaining about fashion events like this it gets on my nerves a little. They don’t expect you to wear these things. It’s a creative expression of art combined with fashion, in a metaphoric sense…not literal.
Shirtless Nick Jonas Pics
Just because it’s Saturday, and because Nick Jonas seems like a nice guy, and because he doesn’t post anything toxic about politics. And we haven’t seen him around for a while.
Perhaps feeling his fans and followers had become too docile and complacent in recent days, Nick Jonas decided to rile up the troops by posting a shirtless pic to Instagram. No warning. No foreshadowing. And in the blink of an eye, we awake to a whole new world — one that includes one more shirtless photo of Nick friggin’ Jonas.
You can check out the pics here. Jonas is always SFW.
Tom Daley Nude Photos Leaked Online
They’re saying that Tom Daley is experiencing distress over this. Poor Tom. My heart is breaking.
The tabloid reports the selfies were taken while Daley was involved in a “secret relationship” back in 2016 and feature him “posing naked in his bedroom.”
And you think you’ve got it bad.
Here’s the rest.
Cisgender, White, and Gay Not Cool Anymore
I have to agree with a lot of this. It’s about challenging the perfect gay male, with the perfect gay male body, and the perfect white gay male background.
There’s an Instagram account called Hoscos under fire now because of its lack of diverse content. And they’re not apologizing for it.
Here’s an excerpt describing Hoscos, from an investigative piece, by Mic.
If you like your men with a little grunt in their dumbbell curl, or if you are a lover of somewhat exposed derrieres, entirely exposed derrieres, naked men contemplatively staring out on a mountaintop or couples whose bodies are so similar in definition you’d swear there was some sort of genetic mutating at play, then Hoscos is an account you might consider tapping.
There’s more here. I happen to like diversity in men, and I think most gay men do, too. I wish I were allowed to post nude photos of men here (not porn; just artistic nudes), only google and Facebook would censor that. But if I could, they would definitely be diverse.
Rose McGowan Blasts Hollywood Fakery
I haven’t always agreed with McGowan, but this time I’m leaning in her direction. I also like the fact that she’s not afraid to voice her opinion about anything…in spite of the consequences. McGowan is going up against a lot of “old boy” power here.
Here’s a guide to facts about ejaculation.
There’s a lot of information covered in this article, but here’s just one fact…

Male Full Frontal Nudity IMDb
If you’re sick of the double standard in TV and movies when it comes to the lack of male full frontal nudity, IMDb actually has a page that lists the most current films with male full frontal.
You can check that out here. I honestly don’t know how accurate it is, but I would imagine it’s okay. I think they update these things often. It’s also SFW.
50 Best Male Full Frontal Nude Scenes
I haven’t posted anything on male full frontal in a while, so here’s something that’s current…or at least relatively current
Hollywood has never been particularly fond of male full-frontal scenes in film or television. Although famous women occasionally bare it all for a role, men rarely strip down for the camera. Our friends at discovered a hidden gem buried in the archives. The article is titled Male Full-Frontal Nudity Supercut: Which Stars Have Bared It All?, and it features a compilation 50 celebrity cocks caught on film. The video was produced by Amber Genuske and Oliver Noble, and it was definitely worth the effort.
Here’s the rest. SFW.
Reality Show Bromans and Male Full Frontal Nudity
I rarely link to this web site, but this piece is interesting. And these things always seem more interesting in other countries.
