Nick wishes you a very happy Valentine’s Day

Patrick Lentz Photography, hairy, handsome, hunkMy friend and local photographer, Patrick Lentz, posted photographs of Nick who lives up on the North Shore, on Friday. The 25 year old from Gloucester loves the camera and agreed to take a series of photographs with Patrick, several of which have a very nice Valentine’s Day theme.

I’ve included a few photos below but you can see more of Nick on Flickr Patrick Lentz Photography, handsome, hairy, hunkPatrick Lentz Photography, handsome, hairy, hunkYou can see more of Patrick’s photography here, www.PatrickLentz.com.

Robert Mapplethorpe was a controversial photographer who’s homoerotic work created a national debate over public funding of art in the 1980s. Unfortunately, Mapplethorpe passed away in Boston in 1989 at the age of 42 due to complications from HIV/AIDS, but his work lives on.

In just a few weeks the LACMA and the Getty Museums will present complementary, simultaneous exhibitions of more than 3oo pieces of work entitled, The Perfect Medium.

LACMA – The Perfect Medium, March 20 – July 31

IMAGINARY COUPLES by Olivier Ciappa

photographyFirst reported in The Advocate back in June 2013, Gay Voices on Huffington Post recently wrote an article about this bold photography project that brings celebrities together to pose as same-sex couples and families to combat homophobia and provide positive images of recognizable figures engaging in queer relationships.

The series, called “IMAGINARY COUPLES,” is the brainchild of French artist and photographer Olivier Ciappa and has been displayed in galleries and cities around the world from Paris to Lima. “IMAGINARY COUPLES” is tentatively scheduled to hit the United States this summer, possibly in Los Angeles.

Instagram account Chris Nogiec

InstagramEarlier this month I wrote about the Instagram account @intergaycial.  This time I wanted to feature the Instagram account of a guy who lives in Boston and whom I’ve met socially, although I wouldn’t go so far as to suggest we know each other, @chrisnogiec.

The few times we’ve met, I’ve been struck by how friendly Chris is. I’m also impressed by the fact that he’s quite a smart guy; he has his PhD, is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and is a Certified Sports Nutritionist. All that aside, he has an active Instagram account filled with pg-13 photos I’m sure my primarily gay and female readership will enjoy.

If you like what you see and you are on Instagram, check out @chrisnogiec and while you are on Instagram check out my own account, @bosguyblog.

Herb Ritts exhibit at MFA closes Nov. 8

MFA Boston presents Herb Ritts WORKLast March I wrote about a small Herb Ritts exhibit opening at the MFA. The exhibit which spans two rooms includes some of the photos included in the MFA’s 1996 retrospective “Herb Ritts:  WORK”, which remains one of the museum’s most popular exhibitions to date.  If you’ve not had a chance to stop by and see the exhibit at the MFA Boston, I’d suggest you hurry since it closes on Sunday, November 8, 2015.

 

Justin and Nick on Instagram

Instagram, justinick_pghConfessions of a Boy Toy recently shared a blog post recently entitled,  Meet Justin & Nick: Instagram’s Sexiest Gay Couple.  For about six months I have been one of the more than 170,000 people who follow their joint account on Instagram and without fail each of their posts bring a smile to my face.

As you can probably tell from the photo above and a few more below, these guys are easier on the eyes than sun glasses on a bright summer day.  If you are not already, you too can follow this handsome Pittsburgh couple via Instagram at @justnick_pgh.

Ptown gallery walk

While tens of thousands have descended upon Provincetown for Independence Week parties and celebrations, a weekly tradition worth checking out (if only to take a break from all the revelries) is the Ptown Friday Gallery Walk.

While many think of the East End when they think of Provincetown’s art galleries, don’t overlook West End galleries like the AMP Gallery at 148 Commercial St. where Keith Krisa’s exhibit opened and will run through Wednesday, July 8th.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Ptown offers a little bit of something for everyone.  While visiting try something you may not normally do.  You might be surprised by how much you enjoy perusing Provincetown’s art galleries.
