Oh Tiger!


Beautiful Guy, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

Here's a photo of a beautiful guy I took at Gay Pride in NYC. If I didn't know better, I might think he was looking just a bit upset that Tiger Woods has gotten himself into such a bind!

Mindy said she romped with Tiger under the nose of his blonde wife Elin, 29, who was pregnant. Mindy said: "All he wanted me for was sex."

Isn't that special?

Some Thoughts About Marriage Equality


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

Today, the senate in New York State defeated the same-sex marriage bill and missed a glorious opportunity today to assume a leadership position in human rights. In the words of Senator Duane, referring to large looming problems like war and the economy, "There is never a good time for civil rights — it’s never, ever the right time for civil rights, I know,” he added. “But the paradox is it’s always a good time to be on the right side of history.” Today, it was very painful to watch my own state's representatives vote to let bigotry stand, to actually listen to individual senators call out their "NO" votes and impact my reality like this.

Our day WILL come.

Today, I am celebrating the future by posting a series of some of my favorite photos that I took at Gay Pride in NYC.

Everyday is Gay Pride Day


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

This beautiful sight that I photographed at Gay Pride 2009 in NYC is a rousing image that I hold in my mind everyday as I consider where gay people have been, progress that's been made and what we deserve to achieve in the future. Nothing less than full equality will do.

Love is Beautiful, Love is Real!


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

Love makes the world a better place for everyone. Too bad that fear and ignorance continue to blind too many of the people in political power here in the USA. The darkness will get dispelled in time so that equal rights and justice will ultimately prevail. I took this photo at Gay Pride 2009 in NYC.

Support Marriage Equality!


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

If you are gay, whether or not you ever want to get married, it is a right that should be available to you here in the USA, a country which prides itself on equal treatment for all under the law. I took this photo at Gay Pride 2009 in NYC.

Joy, Light & Love


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

I assume these two young men who I photographed at Gay Pride 2009 in NYC are a couple. If they are, they cannot get married, today, in New York or most other states in the USA. No matter how long a same-sex couple has been together, or how committed they are to each other, or how upstanding a citizen each person in a same-sex couple is, no matter what they each contribute to society in America, regardless of the taxes that they pay to support EVERYONE in America, same-sex couples who want to get married are being denied equal status due to sheer bigotry and ignorance. This must not stand.

It's Been 40 Years Since the Stonewall Rebellion


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

40 years after Stonewall, and we still don't have marriage equality. The excerpt below, from NYS senate bill S66003, explains the situation of many of you in the good old USA, and/or your friends and members of your family quite well. I took this photo at Gay Pride 2009 in NYC.

Partners unable to enter into a civil marriage - and their children - lack basic legal protections taken for granted by married couples. In such areas as property ownership, inheritance, health care, hospital visitation, taxation, insurance coverage, child custody, pension benefits and testimonial privileges, married couples receive important safe-guards against the loss or injury of a spouse, and crucial assurances against legal intrusion into their marital privacy. As important, unions lacking the State's recognition are denoted, by force of law, as somehow not equal to other comparable relationships. Civil marriage is the means by which the State defines a couple's place in society. Those who are excluded from its rubric are told by the institutions of the State, in essence, that their solemn commitment to one another has no legal weight.

Out Loud and Proud!


Gay Pride, originally uploaded by funfotoguy2.

The defeat of the gay marriage vote in the New York State senate today is disappointing and deplorable. But progress is unstoppable. We WILL attain marriage equality! I took this photo at Gay Pride 2009 in NYC.

Love is Beautiful

Looking at You!


Impression, originally uploaded by evanembee.

As evanembee from Flickr explained, "This photo is not diddled with to make it look like an Impressionist painting. The afternoon light, the breeze, the telephoto, and the exposure all conspired together to create this painterly effect in the camera. I think that's kinda cool." Thanks to evanembee for sharing this photo with us! He took it in El Dorado Park, Long Beach.

GANYMEDE #5 ISSUE RELEASED

GANYMEDE is a literary/art print journal by and for gay men published quarterly in New York as a paperback book. I'm happy to post this announcement regarding the release of issue #5.

as a paperback book.

--EDMUND WHITE on writing gay
--OSCAR WILDE's delicious 1889 dialogue on art, ³The Decay of Lying²
--GLENWAY WESCOTT's 1928 story of a little boy going to a ball in drag

Our portfolio shows these precious images.

"When I pulled Ganymede #5 out of its box, I held a spine nearly an inch thick, healthy for an annual but unheard-of for a quarterly. And when I reached the end of its 344 pages, my head was spinning. Nothing remotely like Ganymede has been seen in the gay community in my lifetime. After crucial essays by Edmund White and Oscar Wilde, each section, presented with style and snap, leads you deep into gay male experiences of genuine interest and pungency. Ganymede has already been praised for its textual importance and visual splendor, but with this issue, it rises to real historic grandeur. No literate gay man can afford to miss it."
--Erik Mitchell in AssociatedContent.com

Bad News...


This is a photo of yours truly, Funfotoguy.

Apparently, Flickr deleted my account of almost 3,000 photos this evening. They sometimes go after accounts that have candid photos, and delete them. I really love the ease of blogging photos from Flickr, as well as Flickr itself. Flickr was the host of the vast majority of photos that appeared here on Beautiful Guys.

There's not much there now, but I opened a new account under the name Funfotoguy2 on Flickr. If you're on Flickr, I hope you'll look for me sometime soon, and add me as a contact. If you're a Flickr member, then try me here, at this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/funfotoguy2/. Also, you can click here to reach me by email.

It's been a fun ride, eh?

It would be nice to find another service to host my tasteful (in my opinion!), candid photos without worrying about the service deleting my account.

For now, my plans for Beautiful Guys are entirely up in the air...but I am thinking on it, and open to your suggestions!

Trailer for Ashton Kutcher's Indie Comedy 'Spread'



Set in present Los Angeles, Spread is an iconic look at the lure of sex, money, and access that Hollywood offers to the beautiful people, and the karmic price that Nikki must ultimately pay to live that lifestyle.

Spread is directed by British filmmaker David Mackenzie, of The Last Great Wilderness, Young Adam, Asylum, and Mister Foe previously. The screenplay was written by first-time screenwriter Jason Hall. This had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year where it was bought by Anchor Bay Films for upwards of $3 million. Spread arrives in limited theaters starting on August 14th this summer.

Check out an interview with Ashton Kutcher in Parade magazine!

BRUNO is Brilliant!

I saw BRUNO the film this evening. Sacha Baron Cohen is brilliant! The film gets off to a quick start, and once the laughs start, they just keep on coming! GLAAD has criticized the film, stating that it "reinforces negative stereotypes" and "decreases the public's comfort with gay people." Boy, did they get it WRONG! Universal Pictures, on the other hand, got it RIGHT and maintains that "Bruno" is a satire that "uses provocative comedy to powerfully shed light on the absurdity of many kinds of intolerance and ignorance, including homophobia."

Gay people should not be afraid to appear or act differently than straight people, period. BRUNO clearly presents an extreme, provocative example, but it also serves to remind us that there's room for everyone.

WE'RE HERE, WE'RE QUEER! F*&KING GET USED TO IT!

I LOVE BRUNO!

Adam is a buddy of mine from Flickr.

He's got exquisite taste in candid guy photos. He disappeared for a while, but his blog is back now!



Harvey Milk (1930 - 1978)


Harvey Milk was the first openly gay politician in California. He was born and raised in New York. He's been a hero of mine ever since I read The Mayor Of Castro Street (1982) by Randy Shilts, and saw The Times of Harvey Milk (1984). Sean Penn stars as Harvey Milk and Gus Van Sant is director of the stunning new film, Milk (2008) with a script by Dustin Lance Black.

The power of the film "lies in its uncanny balancing of nuance and scale, its ability to be about nearly everything — love, death, politics, sex, modernity — without losing sight of the intimate particulars of its story. Harvey Milk was an intriguing, inspiring figure. 'Milk' is a marvel." - from The New York Times

Where would we be today without Harvey Milk? How would the AIDs crisis have unfolded differently if he did not get killed in 1978. Will lousy Proposition 8 in California stand, or will it be invalidated by the California Supreme Court?


I will always feel indebted to, and inspired by, Harvey Milk!

Anderson at Model Men

Today's post features a few of my favorite guys from Model Men.

The site features male models & amateur guys in hot, exclusive photo sets, including naked men. Model Men has increased its update schedule to at least 4 times per week, & I'm told, intends to continue to develop & expand its offerings. Check out the site, and if you feel so inclined, it's a good idea to get a subscription in July before a slight increase.
