The 'Boy' Who Cried Woof

Excited to hear that "Boy Culture" -- the best-selling novel by Matthew Rettenmund that was turned into an acclaimed film 10 years ago -- is coming back as what is being billed as a "daring new digital series," tackling a variety of hot-button issues facing the modern gay. Taking over the role of hustler X from Derek Magyar will be Matthew Wilkas, who charmed audiences in "Gayby" before charming the pants off of Gus Kenworthy. Ageless Darryl Stephens (of "Noah's Arc" fame) returns as Andrew -- plus a bunch of new faces including Internet favorite Matt Crawford and singer Steve Grand. 

I was first introduced to Matt via Q. Allan Brocka's film adaptation -- Matt and I ended up having lunch at Blue Fin after I accidentally stood him up the day before at Le Grainne Cafe in Chelsea -- and I've been a fan (and friend) ever since. (I immediately bought the book, which is great and is the shortest thing he's ever written!) I'm eager to see where these sexy characters find themselves a decade later -- the original had a MySpace page! -- as the landscape for all denizens of the LGBTQ community has changed so dramatically.
