Love this dude. He’s a total CRAZY original. Insane? Yes. Funny? Hell yeah!
Via ACCIDENTAL BEAR:
Diversity is something we try to highlight, young or old, hairy or smooth, purple or yellow, one ball or two. Gay culture is dominated by young, one dimensional types in gay and lesbian magazines and media. The only place I have seen men older than 30 appreciated is in the porn industry. These two artists have set out to find men over 50 and put them on a pedestal. We may prefer our men covered in fur around these parts, but see the beauty in all men:
“Tommy + Alan photography is helmed by photographer Tommy Wu and multimedia designer Alan Reade, who are partners in life and work. The Los Angeles duo’s goal is to push the boundaries of editorial and commercial photography and to rebel against what is called sexy. For many of the “Men Over 50,” who talk openly about both their triumphs and struggles in a series of accompanying audio clips, the picture we see is of a man who beat back adversity and came out looking great.”

Haha! This is a good one! Here’s a Michael Jackson obsessed straight guy… and he wants you (if you are STR8)! See his picture HERE.
Below is his post:
“I’m a serious bro looking for a equally/more serious bro with fancy footwork. The idea is to tie our wrists together ala the “Beat It” video and then each JO/knife fight in a profound spiritual act of consensual hetero awesomeness. I would have done this way sooner but have little faith in humanity.”
-access to an abandoned warehouse
-old enough/built kinda awesome
-maintains good eye contact
-leather jackets ( I had to give the one in the pic back – long story, I can tell you when we finish)
-basic knowledge of knife/sword/bat fight etiquette (I can teach you what I know if you are pretty serious about art like me)
-can lift 80 lbs
-bachelor’s in something or equivalent experience
-not a narc
“Whereas dudes/J-ing O are both undeniably awesome, I’m a straight bro. As in not gay. I just really love MJ and being open minded about new JO scenarios. We will basically play “Beat It” over and over again while we JO and dance, occasionally parrying/thrusting. Winner finishes the most times, but points will be awarded for finishing first/accuracy. If you’re the heter-bro I’m looking for, then we can JO furiously/competitively and then just hang or whatever. I’ve got laser tag too. I’m pretty serious about this. As in completely serious. If you touch my junk with anything but your own I will BF you in the M. Nerds/gays need not apply. I’M NOT GAY.”
P.S. – And I’ve gotten with hot chicks as recently as just now.
“They told him don’t you ever come around here
Don’t wanna see your face, you better disappear
The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it”
This morning, Zachary published a lovely note on his blog, expanding upon his reasons for coming out. Excerpts below:
“When i found out that Jamey Rodemeyer killed himself – i felt deeply troubled. but when i found out that Jamey Rodemeyer had made an it gets better video only months before taking his own life – i felt indescribable despair … it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it – is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality.
…we are witnessing an enormous shift of collective consciousness throughout the world. we are at the precipice of great transformation within our culture and government. i believe in the power of intention to change the landscape of our society – and it is my intention to live an authentic life of compassion and integrity and action. Jamey Rodemeyer’s life changed mine. and while his death only makes me wish that i had done this sooner – I am eternally grateful to him for being the catalyst for change within me. now i can only hope to serve as the same catalyst for even one other person in this world. that – i believe – is all that we can ask of ourselves and of each other.”
