About BosGuy

I am a gay, urban, foodie and travel nut who lives in Boston’s South End. I started blogging about gay life in Boston and Provincetown in the fall of 2007 as a hobby. The hobby turned into a passion and now I have more than 12,000 blog posts on BosGuy.com, making me the longest running and preeminent blogger for LGBTQ life in Boston, Provincetown and New England.

If there is something happening that would be of interest to the LGBTQ community, gay life in Boston, Provincetown or New England, or that is about the arts, dining or travel, contact me at bosguymail@gmail.com.

Not all the images on this blog are my own. I do use photos that are emailed to me by readers and found on the web.  If you are the owner of an image and would like to be credited or have it removed, contact me directly by email or by leaving a comment on the specific posting.

  1. I came across hour blog through your Mark Strand post, which Prompted me to buy the collection. I’ll look forward to more. Stay safe!


  2. I’m wondering if “fancy” in the description means “gay”. Thought you might find this picture (from an auction) interesting for its historical aspect!



  3. Hey Bos Guy – thought you might like this for one of your Vintage Gay features –

    Always enjoy your posts and humor! Thanks, Tom in Arlington, VA


  4. Dude! I LOVE YOUR BLOG! I kept laughing at some of it and really glad that I stumbled on your site while I was checking the rankings for one of my sites. I found your blog when I did a search for “gay membership card” and got your post.

    You rank higher than some of mine for https://mymembershipcards.com and it’s not fair!

    Keep up the GREAT WORK!

    (I want to keep seeing what you post for hot men on “Scruffy Sunday” and for sure on “Furry Friday”! Men in kilts aren’t bad either!)


  5. Greetings,

    I hope your week is off to a great start. I recently found your website while searching for thought leaders in the men’s fashion world and quickly found myself getting lost in the posts. You’ve developed an amazing platform and I love the storytelling methods you utilize to engage your readers.

    I’m reaching today because I would like to know if you were going to be featuring any new and menswear products on your site, and if so, if you’d be interested in reviewing TaniUSA’s cutting-edge luxury underwear. TaniUSA has developed an innovative Micro Modal fabric that’s proven to be softer and more comfortable than traditional silk, providing greater fit and comfort for improved sleep, better body temperature control, and advanced moisture-wicking capabilities. Our progressive, eco-friendly products have been receiving rave reviews, and we were recently featured in Forbes magazine where we spoke in detail about how TaniUSA has been disrupting the luxury underwear/loungewear market.


    We believe that TaniUSA’s products would be the perfect fit for both you and your followers, as it’s a product designed with a strong emphasis on quality, comfort, and sustainability. We understand that you only want to recommend the best styles and products to your readership, and we believe ours is comparable to none. We would love to send you some of our product to test it out for yourself, and would be glad to continue the conversation if you’re interested.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, as I’m sure you receive numerous inquiries on a daily basis. If you would like to jump on a call to discuss things further, I’d be glad to.

    With gratitude,


  6. Good Work


  7. Hi,

    I’m one of the producers of Story Club Boston, a storytelling/reading show at the Milky Way Lounge in Jamaica Plain. Our shows attempt to bring together a mix of featured storytellers ranging from seasoned veterans and performers to people from all walks of life. In addition, we also feature an open mic portion where audience members can tell their own five-minute story based on the night’s theme.

    To that end, we would like to invite you to join us as one of our featured storytellers at an upcoming show. We feel that you’d be a great storyteller and offer our audience a unique perspective. Past storytellers have included standup comedians, actors, writers, community leaders, politicians, members of the Boston Derby Dolls roller derby team, local chefs and bartenders, etc.

    If you’re interested in joining us and/or would like more information, please feel free to contact me at this email address. Hope to hear from you soon and hope you can join us.

  11. Hi Bos Guy,

    I’m Karina from BookSinglesHolidays.com, I was looking at your site and noticed that you feature amazing LGBT related articles!

    I was wondering if maybe you would be interested in sharing our recent article “LGBT Travel – What are the Most and Least LGBT Friendly Countries” We made the list after doing some research and we were able to come up with a comprehensive list with the most recent and updated information on LGBT travel.

    I believe it is a great read that you and your community would enjoy.

    You can find the article here:


    Do have a look! It would be great if you could share it with your audience!

    Let me know what you think, and keep up the awesome job!

    Karina Ramos.


  12. How can I email you? There isn’t an email listed on your site.


  13. Hi BosGuy ! full of kisses from France and long life to your website


  14. Your blog is really good man.

    Liked by 1 person

  15. I came to your site looking for news about Estelle’s — there’s purple paper covering all the windows and a note on the door. (I was driving by, couldn’t see what it says.) Are they renovating? Being replaced?


  16. Hi BosGuy!

    I met you at the Santa Speedo Run (I was the guy in the furry reindeer hat with the logo on his chest). Anyway I was wondering if you would mind sending me the photo you snapped? I’d of course cite the source and sing your blog praises. Thank you by the way! I was feeling really awkward surrounded by all the pretty people wearing the eqivalent of not so flattering underwear, but you took the best picture of myself I’ve probably ever had despite that.



  17. What’s Up Bosguy, I stumbled across your blog (Nice) and figured I’d ask you a question. I am trying to build a black gay history in this country and wondered if you knew of any Black Gay Bars/Lounges, clubs..etc that were open PRIOR to 1990? The older the better. Just trying to trace the history of black gays in this country and where they congregate “back in the day.” Do you know the names of any past establishments that could help me out?


  18. Hi, my name is Alex and I am one of the founding team members of @theFavecast. We are a tool for amateur explorers to share short video recommendations that capture their favorite items and experiences.

    We really like helping bloggers have more fun sharing their experiences in short video, just ask Sus and Chlo (http://bit.ly/1kTBiLf).

    Your blog seemed particularly awesome, so I was wondering if you would like to talk about ways to make short video a cool component of your blog, either online or over coffee.

    We can even offer you our awesome Favecast preview version for you to try out before we release publicly!

    I look forward to talking further,



  19. I really like the blog! I love the concept behind it, plus it’s cool that it shows how gay people are just like everyone else. I am a new blogger and would love to link your blog on my site and maybe help one another out? If not I understand but I would really like it 🙂




  20. Hey,

    What I find so difficult for a new guy here is to get to make some gay friends who like clubbing.

    Think you have something to say on that?


    26 m here…


  21. Hi BosGuy,

    I would like to share this event to you and your friends. I know you will love this event.

    Zozi is giving away free tickets to the Boston Tomato Bash. This is an enormous tomato fight! You will be making ketchup with your body while covering your friends in handfuls of red goo!


    Can you let your friends know about this? Zozi is buying tickets from us and giving them away for free for a limited time.

    Here is where people can get their free tickets:


    Please let us know if you can let your group know about the free tickets.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you,

    Marty Lee Parker

    I just happened across your blog today. I’m new to wordpress but I blog on blogger since 2010. I can’t believe I haven’t seen your site before now. I’m a follower here as of this morning and look forward to to many reads in the future. Nice job!


  23. Love your blog!


  24. Hi BosGuy!
    Let me introduce myself, I’m Alex, a 31 year old Brazilian gay guy.
    I’m so glad I was looking for something new, I don’t know, something different to see and found your blog!
    I’m having a good time readind your posts, I’ve read some of them, and be sure I’ll be coming back frequently from now on.
    I’d also like to express my sadness when I knew about the recurring tradegy in the US this week… I hope God bless each one of the people, each one of the families who directly or not make part of the history and of those who died in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
    Hugs and hugs!


  25. Great blog. I’ve been following you for a while now. That said, I was hoping you could help guide me to a hotel near the Boston Harbor. I’d like to stay walking distance from the Boston Harbor Cruise location (Long Wharf). My partner and I will be heading to Ptown in July and will need to stay a night or two before catching the ferry over. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Mark


  26. I found your blog after a google search of BoMa (where I live two minutes away from). The lighting fixtures look great but ultimately what will make the greatest amount of relevance is the skill and warmth of the employees they hire. If the staff sucks it wont matter to me how pretty the inside looks (and I’m amazed at the type of people who get hired to interact with the public and decided to leave their charming personality with their jacket in the employee locker room).


  27. Dear Bosguy, I have been a regular reader of your blog for over a year now. Needless to say I like it – the variety of content, the humor, the teasers! I am from Nashville. My partner and I are contemplating a short trip to Boston towards the end of Sept for a couple of days. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on where to stay (neighborhoods that are not too expensive) and a few suggestions on dinner and places to visit. Best wishes AD


  28. Hey Bosguy, I just came across your blog and really like reading it! I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. Not sure how many international guys read the blog but it’s a good read and I would like to visit Boston hopefully soon. Take care, Henry


  29. Great Blog, Will check back frequently now that I’ve found it. I like to keep up with life up-north being a yankee in ATL. Hope to get to P-town soon as was there a lifetime ago or so it seems.


  30. Just found your blog and am really enjoying it. Keep it up!


  31. I came across your site reading a comment on Andy Towle’s site, I used to live in Boston and thought I would check it out. Nicely done! I even saw some photos of people I used to know which was a nice surprise.


  32. Dear Bosguy,
    I wanted to thank you. I was in Boston for a week last month, and followed so many leads from your blog that made the trip so enjoyable. I am an expat in France.
    I say, move over Terri Gross…..
    thanks Tim


  33. BG Baby – I wanted to put an ad on your blog but you dont have them 😦


    • That’s sweet of you, but I consider my blog more like a low-brow, bawdier version of National Public Radio. No advertising. There’s plenty of that stuff everywhere else. Hope you are good D-man.


  34. Hey BosGuy! Just stumbled on your blog–nice job! I particularly liked your post on the Gay For Good Boston group. They have a new member, thanks to you. Take care–Fred


  35. Hello from GayTravel.com!

    We love your site and are trying to expand our partner page by pursuing guest bloggers and link exchanges and are interested in working with you. Email me back if getting listed on your site in exchange for listing you on our partner page is an option right now. Also, let me know if you are interested in guest blogging for us at this time. Looking forward to hearing back from you!


  36. My name is Travis Lowry, I am a long time BosGuy reader and I recently founded Rainbow Chronicle, the first and only site which allows users to rate any person, business or event according to its gay friendliness. We are trying to spread the word about our recent launch and were wondering if you would be interested in doing a post on us? We have been in the Herald (http://bostonherald.com/business/technology/general/view.bg?articleid=1403461) the Cambridge Chronicle (http://www.wickedlocal.com/cambridge/news/x740684718/Cambridge-entrepreneurs-create-rating-site-catering-to-gay-community#axzz1nsgwqixk) and MTV (http://voices.mtv.co.uk/2012/01/rainbow-chronicle/) but sites like yours are super helpful with grassroots growth.



  37. Hey there,

    Gaston here. Moving to Boston next month and looking forward to it. I’m not that much into blogging (don’t even have facebook or twitter… guess I’m a gay caveman technologically speaking), but found your blog useful.
    Would like to get connected to other professional gay men in Boston, in their 30’s-40’s to hang around with and get to know people and places. No particular agenda here, just trying to connect and find interesting people. Let me know!



    • Hi Gaston – definitely look me up when you arrive in Boston. Happy to meet for a coffee or drink. If you have any questions about Boston before your arrival feel free to email me thru comments your email address and I’ll reach out to you. I won’t publish your email.


  38. Found your blog through your Twitter account. I’m sure I’ll be enjoying your posts regularly now. Cheers.

    – Castle


  39. Glad you made a new home here! xoxo
