  • Entertainment Gay Gym Body

    Along with the rise of the gym craze that has enraptured the gay community came an unwelcome side effect: Chicken Legs Syndrome, that unflattering body type cultivated by muscle Marys who look like they've been pumping iron while in a wheelchair. To help combat the effects of CLS, we turned to David Barton, who built a fitness empire with one simple demand: look better naked.

  • Entertainment Song Of Solomon Or Song Of Sin�ad O'Connor

    Sometimes we struggle to distinguish the actual religious sources from our quasi-religious deities. Measure your devotion to all things Sinead or Solomon with each of the following lines: 1) 'As an apple tree among the trees of the woods / So is my lover among men / I delight to rest in his shadow / And his fruit is sweet to my mouth.' 2) 'My apple tree my brightness / It's time we were together / For I smell of the earth / And am worn by the weather.' 3) 'I have water for my journey / I have bread and I have wine / No longer will I be hungry / For the bread of life is mine.'

    Diesel recently opened its first West Coast flagship store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, featuring the newly expanded Diesel Denim Gallery, exclusive runway showpieces, and the relaunched Diesel Collection footwear. Fragrance: I'd never used any fragrance in my life. Last year we created a new fragrance called Fuel for Life, and now I can't leave home without it. Cocktail: The 'sexiest' is not a cocktail but a glass of champagne: Dom P'rignon Ros' Vintage. My favorite is the '93.

  • Entertainment After Dark

    1 A tuxedo is worn after 6 p.m. If you're attending daytime queer nuptials during the day, wear a morning jacket, not a tux. 2 Buttoned collars are a big black-tie no-no. Same goes for pre-tied bow ties. No clip-ons for grown-ups! 3 Invest in sterling silver cuff links, a lint roller, a solid black neck tie in silk or satin (as an alternative to the bow tie), and a black and white scarf for your topcoat. 4 Some say tuxedo shoes are necessary and some say patent leather lace-ups are the way to go. Truth is, both look perfect with a tux.

  • Entertainment Suit To Thrill

    A classic tuxedo speaks volumes about the wearer, specifically that he's chic and urbane, cleans up nicely, and knows the difference between trends and style. Go classic with a shawl collar, one-button tux with spread collar and unpleated tuxedo shirt, or try a pumped-up look with one of these options. Modern: Perfect for any red carpet, this modern option features a pocket square, French cuffs with onyx cuff links, a pinpoint collar and a slim solid black neck tie in silk.

    Revisiting territory covered in his 2002 monograph, Gymnasium, Luke Smalley goes back to his native Pennsylvania with Exercise at Home (Twin Palms, $50) to capture images of barely legal boys posed in bygone-era sporting tableaux, which remind us why we were able to sit through Hoosiers so many times growing up.

    We may never know if Gregg Araki chose to open Smiley Face with a shot of its protagonist stranded on a Ferris wheel because she's played by Anna Faris (Faris/Ferris -- get it?), or if the homophony is merely coincidental.

    When I opened the gold-painted door to Hot Nude Yoga's Chelsea studio, a shirtless muscle-bound black man named Hollis already had his massive arms outstretched. 'Hi, sweetie!' he boomed, beckoning me toward him. I gave him a hug. Next to him stood Aaron Star, the founder of Hot Nude Yoga. A distinctly Chelsea guru, he is tall and good-looking, with closely cropped hair, and he looks younger than his 35 years.

  • Entertainment Expert Advice On: Buying Art

    Don't buy things other people tell you to love. 'The art world is a curious place and you're told to love Damien Hirst's congealed pig fetus, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're going to love it when you get it in your living room.' Don't overthink things. 'You should have an immediate, personal response to any art you buy. Trust your gut.' Don't be driven by measurements. 'Just because something fits over your mantel doesn't mean you should buy it. Buy what you love and create a space for it. Art, like books, always makes the most of a space.'

  • Entertainment Icon: J.C. Leyendecker (1874-1951)

    Long before Bruce Weber's campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch became the predominant image of masculine beauty and sexuality, and before Norman Rockwell established himself as the official illustrator of the American experience, there was J.C. Leyendecker. During his 40-year association with The Saturday Evening Post he produced over 320 covers, and Rockwell considered him his most important mentor. Leyendecker's most influential and lucrative work, however, was his creation of the Arrow Collar Man, one of the most iconic advertising images of the 20th century.

  • Entertainment Donate to the Partridge Family of Hate

    Part of the proceeds of this column will go toward establishing the Phags 4 Phelps Dephense Phund. Why? Because Pastor Fred Phelps, the most tenacious homophobe in the world today, has done more for gay Americans than most activists. I first became aware of the Phelps clan in the mid '90s when they came to protest Atlanta's pride festival. I so admired the graphic simplicity of their neon posters depicting stick figures having anal sex that I actually tried, without luck, to purchase one of them from Phelps's website.

  • Entertainment Sometimes We Hate Each Other

    Am I wrong to think that we get offended too easily? Not that we don't have a lot to get angry about, but sometimes I get so weary of the acrimony and the bile, the high-pitched whine that seems to settle over the gay landscape like one of Dante's circles of hell. There was a time when it was commonly assumed that being gay doomed us to a life of misery and bitterness, but until I saddled myself to the gay media wagon I'd never imagined that we'd be the ones to help perpetuate it.

    In Fuerzabruta, an audience is showered with water and debris, blasted with smoke and bright lights, and herded through the room like hypnotized cattle, all to a propulsive techno soundtrack. A typical evening on Broadway it is not, but the show's Argentine creator, Diqui James, isn't catering to stuffy theatergoers. 'We don't want to do something just for intellectuals who love literature,' he explains, 'or just for young kids who love raves.'
