Happy Gay Friday, Boy Culture & Blog News

I’ve watched the gay movie Boy Culture this week which is a few years old but nevertheless a great movie! It’s the story of a successful male escort who describes in a series of confessions his tangled romantic relationships with his two roommates and an older, male client. The actors are doing a good job and the romance is heartbreaking and has a HEA ending (pheww!). I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of the gay genre.

Here’s the trailer:

Boy Culture made me curious about other gay themed movies and I found this wonderful blog, titled That Gay Movie, among all the links I got for pron sites when I typed ‘gay movie’ in Google. This blog isn’t about that at all– not that I have something against gay pron ;) – but it reviews movies and has the latest news about releases and stuff. I hope to pick up some recs from it.

I’m happy to tell you that Lis will be back with a guest review tomorrow! She’ll talk about Josh Lanyon’s Fair Play this time. And what’s even more amazing, she’ll join Leontine and me next Friday when we’re going to meet in Utrecht! Woohoo!! I really look forward to our date. :)

I have some more good news, because next week I’ll be hosting a few giveaways at my place. The awesome authors Shayla Kersten, L.B. Gregg, Kele Moon and Stacey Espino have donated e-copies of their books to make four lucky readers of my blog happy. These are the books:

Although I don't do it often, I LOVE hosting giveaways, and it’s even more special next week because Monday (October 25th) is the date that I started blogging one year ago! Yay me! The contests are definitely making it a special, festive week for me and I hope you'll all drop by. :D

More on Monday! For now have a Happy Weekend!!
