Nude Male Celebrities
I think I might have interviewed this blogger about ten years ago for bestgayblogs.com, but can't find a link anywhere. When BGB was sold to another start up a lot of the archives disappeared. In any event, Alan Ilagan is an openly gay photographer, a gallery manager, a blogger, and has many other talents. I especially love what he wrote in his bio about children:
From 2008 through 2012, Ilagan was the Gallery Manager at the Romaine Brooks Gallery at the Pride Center of the Capital Region in Albany, NY. In 2008 he was voted “Best Dressed Man in the Capital Region” by the readers of the Times Union. He has lived with his partner Andy since 2000. They were married in Boston, MA in May 2010, and remain happily unburdened by children.
We're not all heteronormative...yet. Some of us still believe dinner should never begin before nine at night and brunch is somewhere around two or three in the afternoon.
Ilagan's web site is interesting in many ways. He mentions a few iconic gay venues like the Hotel Chelsea in New York, with an amazing commentary that captures exactly what the hotel has always been about. I think it's interesting that so many who claim to know so much about gay men have never even heard of the Hotel Chelsea.
I find the entire web site not only professional and artistic, but a level above most of the web sites similar to it that are out there. In fact, it's one of a small handful of web sites where you can find a section devoted to elegant nude photos of male celebrities. You can check that out here.
And there is a great deal more to read and view. It's one of the places where I go when I need to feel gay again. That might not make much sense to most people reading this. But I think a lot of gay men would agree with me, especially these days.
Anna Paquin Proud Bisexual Mom
Anna Paquin of True Blood recently tweeted that she's proud to be a married bisexual mom in support of pride month. She's married to a man, another True Blood co-star, Stephen Moyer but has been openly bisexual since 2010.
She's made some excellent comments about bisexuality that I think more people need to read.
'I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay,' she told Zooey magazine. 'For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing.'
'It’s not made up,' she added. 'It’s not a lack of decision. It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point. ... For a bisexual, it’s not about gender. That’s not the deciding factor for who they’re attracted to.'
There are so many misconceptions about bisexuals. I know someone who thought his son was bisexual when his son came out of the closet and told him he was gay. This guy wanted his son to be bisexual, as if it would make it better in some way. And that's just not how it works.

Small Sexy Men
Even though I'm six feet two inches tall, I've never really considered height to be a factor with regard to other men. Or whether or not height makes men sexy. But I know guys who are very self-conscious about their height and maybe this article will put some of their worries to rest.
There's a list of 21 men who don't make the tall cut, but each one easily could get multiple phone numbers in any gay bar on planet Earth. Probably in other worlds also.
The ranking includes people like Zac Efron, Daniel Radcliffe, Usher, Aziz Ansari, Bruno Mars, and James McAvoy.
There are photos and you can read more here.
Just in case you haven't seen it, here's a link to a nude photo of Daniel Radcliffe. And there's NOTHING small about him in THAT photo. Check out the one with the horse. It brings new meaning to the old phrase that my worst straight critics would shun: horse hung.
