This week on Instagram: ema210m

Emanuele Mariotti is a photographer and model who lives in Rome. I had featured him in this January Furry Friday post, and based on the comments and email I received I thought it worth sharing his Instagram.

The photos I’ve shared are fairly typical of the images he posts on his account but you’ll also see a number of photos of Emanuele with Francesco Rellini who I believe is his partner / boyfriend / significant other but I am not 100% certain since I cannot read Italian. There are also many photos of Rome in the background of his photographs, which only make me want to hop on a plane and visit Italy.

This week on Instagram: lucasmurnaghan

I first featured Lucas Murnaghan’s Instagram account, a talented underwater photographer from Canada back in 2017, here. His images of men underwater have an ethereal beauty and quality so I was saddened to learn that this celebrated underwater photographer and orthopedic surgeon, passed away from cancer in his Toronto home last week, on March 21, 2021. He was 45.

In addition to checking out Lucas’ Instagram account visit Brian Ferrari’s Blog, which I feature in my blogroll. Ferrari’s blog includes many of Lucas memorable photos as well as his TEDx talk at Langford, In and Out of Breath. For more images and information regarding his book Beneath The Surface, please visit www.lucasmurnaghan.com/

Brian’s artistic eye will be missed by many (including me) and I want to use this post to express my deepest sympathies to Lucas’ partner, Antonio Lennart, his family and circle of friends.

This week on Instagram: artedgar

Edgar Murillo is the artist who is known on Instagram as artedgar. According to his profile he is a deaf illustrator of homoerotic art who is from Barcelona Spain. His account is definitely racy and certainly gets your attention when you are scrolling through Instagram. He is clearly passionate about his art and most of his drawings evoke an emotion or reaction of some kind. His drawings include all body types and races which is nice and not something I see from a lot of artists who tend to draw similar looking and body types.

This week on Instagram: jirglross

I thought quite a bit about featuring Ross’ Instagram account because he’s been inactive lately, but in the end I thought I’d share it because I never get tired at seeing photos of him and because past posts as a Furry Friday, Temptation Tuesday and even on Instagram a couple of years ago have consistently been well received.

Ross Jirgl is originally from Wisconsin. I believe he played football in college and was a college football coach for several years but now he is a performance coach. His exceptional looks also opened doors to modeling and acting and you’ll see plenty of examples of the former in his Instagram account.

This week on Instagram: sape91

So I have to thank blogger Kenneth in the 212 who first made me aware of this Italian ballet dancer who lives in Brooklyn, when he shared this New York Post story back in late January. Apparently, Saverio Pescucci caught the attention of a Facebook group when he was looking for a roommate earlier this year. In the article he is quoted as saying, “I saw a lot of people … posting pictures of themselves, like selfies and casual photos, to show that they’re not sociopaths or what kind of lifestyle they have,” Pescucci, 29, told The Post. “I did the same [but] I was not imagining that it would turn into an episode of ‘The Bachelor.’ “

The story has a happy ending. Apparently, Pescucci eventually found a place in Williamsburg but not from his viral post which garnered 600 likes and more than 400 comments! If you’d like to follow this handsome dancer, check out his Instagram account. He is fairly active posting selfies and poses of him dancing like the one I shared below.

This week on Instagram: queerbible

If you like the vintage gay posts I publish each Thursday then you will really enjoy the Instagram account, queerbible. The account regularly posts a combination of photos from the past, artist renderings, queer icons (gay and straight) as well as current photos.

This week on Instagram: matt_kennedy1

I have to thank Joe who is the man behind the popular The Closet Professor blog. Last December he shared a Tik Tok video of Matt Kennedy that I used for my weekly Men in Kilts post. This Scottish actor has undeniable boyish good looks and an endearing personality which comes through in his playful posts on his Instagram and Tik Tok clips. 

You’ll find his IG account is filled with photos of Matt out on the town and enjoying time with friends. If you scroll far enough through his profile you’ll also see some of the cities he visited when he was on tour with Mama Maria the musical.

This week I’m featuring the account of the talented local photographer, Kyle Klein who’s account is filled with beautiful pictures of Boston and New England cityscapes and landscapes. The smaller brick buildings in the photo above is a lovely photo of the neighborhood Sergio and I live in called the South End this past fall. 

Anyone who loves this part of the country and Boston in particular may like to follow Keith’s Instagram account. His photos really showcase how beautiful Boston and the surrounding area is. You can see more of his work on his website at kylekleinphotography.com.

This week on Instagram: fternes

A few weeks ago I featured the Instagram of Fabricio’s husband, Dr. Guilherme Mocellin, and so I thought it only fair to provide equal time by sharing Fabricio’s account as well. I’ve featured him before in my “Bonus Fur” posts which I no longer do as well as a previous Furry Friday. 

I don’t know much about Fabricio but I do enjoy his Instagram account which is filled with photos of he and his partner and beautiful photos of places they visit in Brazil like the one shown below.

This week on Instagram: joohnneda

If you are looking to heat things up on your Instagram feed then look no further than Spanish model, John Neda, who seems to have an endless stream of photos of him modeling underwear, bathing suits and sometimes just a pretty smile. 

I don’t know much about this guy other than he has classic good looks, a lean and defined physique and a seemingly endless stream of ‘stimulating’ photos. You can check out his full feed with the link I’ve provided below.

This week on Instagram: zakartwins

The Zakar twins are equal parts cute and funny.  They are proud of their Iraqi heritage but grew up in the United States. In 2017, they self-published their book Pray the Gay Away, in which they tell their personal story of first coming out to themselves then later to each other and then ultimately to their Mom who had more than a little difficulty coming to terms with the news. 

The Instagram account is filled with pictures of the twins (often shirtless). The twins have a great sense of humor and use their Instagram to show it off which is refreshing to see as you may be able to tell from the photos I’m sharing from their Instagram account.

This week on Instagram: bearscubsandbeards1

The name of this Instagram account more or less says it all. But just in case you need more details, their account description says this is an account for bears, cubs, bearded men, and natural men to celebrate the diversity of beauty.

For those of you who identify with or appreciate men from these gay tribes,  it is an account you may enjoy following or possibly submitting a photo or of yourself.

This week on Instagram: guimclln

This week I’m featuring the Instagram account of this handsome Brazilian doctor who practices medicine in Sao Paulo. His name is Guilherme Mocellin and account is filled with photos of his handsome partner, Fabrício Ternes, and their lives together. 

I don’t know much more about Guilherme, although I’ve featured his partner as a Furry Friday in the past (the link above takes you to the IG photo I’ve used previously). After looking through Guilherme’s Instagram and all his playful photos (like the one below), I’m inclined to also add him to a future Mancandy Monday post. What do you think?

This week on Instagram: paulodelvalle

This week I’m featuring the Instagram account of a very talented Brazilian travel photographer. This year is nearly over and even though travel restrictions will remain in place, I’m hopeful that it will become safer to travel again in 2021.

Paulo’s beautiful photos can’t replace the enjoyment I get from traveling but it certainly is wonderful to see his posts pop up on my feed. If you love (and miss) traveling, check out this Instagrammer who posts beautiful images regularly.
