You've likely heard that one half of the Wachowski Brothers, who gave us The Matrix movies, became a sister in recent years. Yes, Larry is now Lana, and she came out recently in a bit of a press push for their upcoming movie Cloud Atlas. At a press conference at the Toronto Film Festival Lana is asked why she took so long to go public, and she says of her and her brother, "We love our anonymity and we love our privacy. We don't really think celebrity does much to improve your life. We actually think it worsens your life. So it was a big decision..." [via Towleroad]
John Hamm likes to go commando. There is, in fact, a whole Tumblr devoted to this fact called John Hamm's Wang, because you can often partially make out his not inconsiderable man parts through his pants in photos. Today, Gothamist has even gotten into the game with a new photo that they were shocked to believe might not be photoshopped. It looks like a few wrinkles in his khakis were smoothed out, but the wang is all his.
Comedian Drew Droege is back with a new installment, and yes, it's about books. What is Chloe reading? Vanna Speaks, naturally, and vineyard maps. Drew/Chloe will be doing a one-man show tomorrow night in L.A. called Good Evening America, and you can get tickets here. Also, she'll be coming to Castro Street Fair again in S.F. the first weekend in October.
Welcome to Tampa, Republicans! All the closeted and semi-closeted and merely self-hating homos among you are ready to play, and Grindr, we're sure, is blowing up right now in the convention-center vicinity. BuzzFeed thankfully has rounded us up some of the hottest M4M and M4W ads in the Tampa environs today, and yes, there will be plenty more. Republicans be nasty. How much you want to bet this married bi Republican's wife doesn't know he's "bi"? [BuzzFeed]
Well, we'll start by saying we don't approve of the shaved armpits. But here's a more politically minded set of overgrown twinks — as compared to Ryan Yezak and his more superficial gang down in L.A. — who made a One Direction parody mocking Mitt Romney called 'Disclosure.' It appears to be associated with gay group Full Frontal Freedom which says they're a "a coalition of independent artists and media folks using our creativity to promote civic engagement."
Mike Diamond, whom we love, is doing a new a wonderful series called "Homewerq" in which he provides a tidy education for young gays everywhere in important topics like size queens and the hanky code. Above, the latest in the series in which Mike and sidekick Mattinga discuss gay (and tranny) terminology like "you look good and good" (which is what you say to a queen who looks busted) and "bean queen." Below, he talks gay icons with Hedda Lettuce.
Everybody remember Steve Kardynal? He of the brilliant Shake Weight parody and an earlier Ke$ha Parody involving ChatRoulette? Well, he's back, in drag, and lip synching to 'Call Me Maybe' on ChatRoulette while America watches, laughs, or sits horrified. Is ChatRoulette still a thing? Apparently so. And it's still a lot of dudes looking for something to wack off to. Luckily, this brought a smile to most of their faces.
We know. We're as sick of the Olympics as your are. But my it's been a wonderful tour of the male form this year. Thank you, internet, for all the perving. And here's one last skin-tastic Olympics post, featuring British high-jump medalist Robbie Grabarz showing off his bronze medal, and his fine physique, wearing only the Union flag. Next Olympics, Robbie, please come out of the closet. Pretty please?
While beloved gay character actor Paul Lynde was forced to shoe-horn his withering, acerbic personality into the various roles he played on television, and into the role of Center Square on Hollywood Squares, Project Runway judge Michael Kors has no such limits on his bitchiness. We really think he's our Paul Lynde, and we're grateful every time he lets loose with a zinger, like last week's ("Rigatoni Mad Max" anyone?), or the many, many that have spilled forth from his botox'ed face over the seasons. Behold, courtesy of Kors Metaphors and BuzzFeed, we have a list of his 15 best. It inlcudes one of our personal favorites: "It's an unbelievably tight race for hideous today."

By now, if you're a homosexual, you've surely seen this photo of American rower and bronze medal-winner Henrik Rummel, who officially has given Bjorn Barrefors a run for his money for the prize of Tastiest Bulge at the Olympics. (Sidebar: We kind of love how this Olympics has been ALL ABOUT the perving over bulges, swimwear, and male ass, as aided by Facebook and everyone's obsession with discussing everything on the internet, and it's way more pronounced than it was in '08. But we digress.) Gawker posted this pic yesterday, insisting that Rummel was sporting an erection as he accepted his medal alongside his less well endowed teammates. But no, as of today, with the entire internet drooling over his junk, Rummel insists he was not hard. That enormous thing is just his flaccid penis, and he points it upward like that because why? Because it's huge.
It looks like Willam Belli, she of "Chow Down (at Chick-Fil-A)" and getting-kicked-off-Drag-Race fame, is up to the parody video business again. She and another queen, Rhea Litre, have teamed up for a spoof of the Scissor Sisters song playing in gay bars everywhere, "Let's Have a Kiki," and it is, of course, called "Let's Have a Kaikai." You can listen to the teaser now, and expect the video any week now. [Queerty]
Well, hello there. This appears to be a modestly sized, but mostly erect member in the shorts of sexysexy Cuban-American gymnast Danell Leyva. He's a fan of sending semi-nude pics of himself to women, as many are, and one of those scorned women decided to send them to Deadspin. Alas, there are many more, but mostly all you see is his shaved torso. But here, a better look at his goods. [Deadspin via Queerty]
Australian Olympian Matthew Mitcham, who's one of the only out gay competitors in this year's Olympics (the others are all dressage queens and handball-playing lesbians), decided to make a little YouTube vid for his fans while sitting his dorm room at the Olympic Village in London. What song did he pick to do? "Single Ladies," naturally. And holy god we want to marry him now. Below, watch him leap around in some swim trunks and mug for the camera in a photo shoot for Funky Trunks.
