SISSYDUDE @ FACEBOOK GROUP on August 4: Just read this interesting piece by Slava Mogutin about censorship on social media. I related a great deal, having myself been “terminated” and “blocked” on several occasions. I lost Sissydude on Blogspot in Sept 2009 (I was Dennis Cooper’d)… with no explanation or warning, been blocked from Facebook for several “month long” periods with no explanation as to why. And seriously, just after reading Mogutin’s article I went to log into Tumblr to find that today my account has been terminated! Ugh. No explanation of course, I’m waiting to hear back. Nine years of curation gone and connection to all the blogs I followed… gone. I think it’s really time to stop all this and go analog and just make real art and stop sharing things I love online. I’ve had enough of this. XO
August 6: Still nothing from Tumblr. I’m sure they won’t be back. So glad I moved Sissydude (thanks Aubs!) to it’s own site/server so many years ago. No one can censor me here. Though I may have take a break at some point. Thanks for coming here everyone! Much love to all. XOXOXO

Sunday is frequently MEGA-POST day, but today after the heartbreaking Orlando news it just didn’t seem right to post frivolous and fun sexy man bits. But life goes on sadly and if you need a few minutes to escape this terrible tragedy (and you aren’t watching the Tony Awards), here’s a MEGA-POST for you to savour… when you’re good and ready, of course. XOXO Sissydude
WIKI: “Iconic photograph Flower Power, snapped by Bernie Boston on October 21, 1967, at the National Mall: Many debates have been brought up as to the identity of the young demonstrator placing the carnations in the gun barrels on that day. According to a 2007 Washington Post article by David Montgomery, his name is George Edgerly Harris III. Harris was a young actor from New York, about 18 years old, who later made the Summer of Love pilgrimage to San Francisco that for which the hippie movement was famous. There, he came out as gay, changed his name to Hibiscus, and co-founded of The Cockettes, a “flamboyant, psychedelic gay-themed drag troupe. Harris died in the early 1980s during the beginning of the AIDS epidemic.”
ELSKA: Issue (05) was made in Taipei, Taiwan. It’s our first edition to leave Europe, and we chose what’s fast becoming Asia’s LGBT capital as its setting. As a country whose identity can be associated with defiance against Chinese communism, Taiwan’s spirit of freedom spreads into the gay community, with one of the most vibrant and open scenes on the Asian continent. The response from Taipei’s local boys was so great that this became the hardest issue to edit down.
Not to be overlooked, showcasing Asian men, especially in a way that highlights their sexuality, is still a rarity among gay publications, or among all publications for that matter. Despite the bombardment of advice that no one would buy an Asian issue, we did it anyway, because of course Elska believes that all men are beautiful, sexy, and totally lovable. “No fats, no fems, no Asians” – fuck that!

Cassandro El Exotico, a Mexican wrestler, owns a championship belt. But the biggest difference between this lucha libre wrestler and his opponents is his garb. In a sport of rampant machismo, Cassandro stands apart. With an outfit that mixes masculine and feminine styles, and a fierce determination to win, the openly gay wrestler defies stereotypes and looks great doing it.
