Last month I shared this poll, soliciting your feedback and ideas on what you would like to see more of on BosGuy.com and an overwhelming number of you indicated that you’d like to see more information about gay entertainment and programming. While there are many websites that follow the entertainment industry, it is remarkably difficult to learn about new and upcoming programming for and about gay men.
I’ve teamed up with Dekkoo (pronounced “DECK-koo”), the premiere subscription-based streaming service dedicated to gay men with the largest streaming collection of gay-centric entertainment available. Let me know your thoughts about this new post, how I can improve it, and if it’s of interest to you.
Below is recently released content on Dekkoo, available for download and viewing with a subscription.
