"I'm coming out...no, wait...I'm going into makeup."Kevin Spacey sings from Sunset Boulevard during his Tony Awards opening number. There were quite a few "coming out" jokes. P.S. He didn't.
As cities around the country are poised to celebrate Gay Pride, Los Angeles eschewed the traditional parade to join in the nationwide Resist March. While I can appreciate the sentiment, why did this march have to start at 8 a.m.? Couldn't I resist just as easily at noon? Perhaps it was a traffic issue, in which case might I suggest something more reasonablelike 5 a.m., when I'm just about to doze off. Given that this was inspired by the Women's March, I suspect the early starting time was the work of some industrious lesbians. I'm a proud gay man, but I must draw the line somewhere, and resisted getting up at such an ungodly hour. But I did manage to join the throng as it petered out. I even sponged down a few of the hotter resisters.

Picture itProvincetown, 1986. While your beloved Billy is still in a Boston-area high school, a soon-to-be-legendary diva is making a splash at Pilgrim House in Ptown. That person was Jimmy Jamesrenowned for his eerie Marilyn Monroe. It's been a while, but he's coming back ... and to the same venue. The Pilgrim House is now called Sage, but it takes more than a coat of paint to fool me! We're told Jimmy will be performing all season ( July 4th through Labor Day ). I'm sure there will soon be more information on SageInnPtown.com .
This column went out in the middle of the Tony Awards. The sight of Andrew Rannells' HD-enhanced basket reminded me how much my readers enjoy the theaterand all the charming people in it. With the success of Kinky Boots, Cyndi Lauper is ready to tackle her next show. And she's certainly picked a doozy. Working Girl told the story of a young girl with big dreams and big hair trying to make it out of the secretarial pool and into corporate America. Since the movie came out in 1988Cyndi's heydayit sounds like a match made in heaven.
Last week, Zac Efron was in the UK and appeared on The Graham Norton Show alongside Tom Cruise. ( Side note: since when is Tom taking Brendan Fraser's rejects? ) After Zac orgasmically gushed over being in the presence of Mr. Cruise, Norton asked him about a certain photo where Efron appears shirtless ( quelle surprise ) and uses a parking meter as a stripper pole. Tom looked intrigued, too. When presented with an actual pole, Zac good-naturedly acquiesced and exhibited a display of upper body strength rarely seen on TVor on BillyMasters.com .
The Tonys may be history, but another awards show is coming back from the dead. The long-dormant GayVNs are back! These awards were given out as part of the popular Adult Video News Awards. Eventually, the GayVNs got their own show, and what a show it was. They were the premier gay-porn awards, sporting not only the top ( and bottom ) names in gay porn, but also people like Kathy Griffin, Bruce Vilanch, Margaret Cho and even moi. The last show took place eight years ago, but AVN is saying it will return next January in Las Vegas.
Speaking of gay porn, a legendary star is off the market. According to Instagram ( which is the gay-porn equivalent of the Associated Press ), Brent Corrigan is engaged. Once again, I feel like I've reported this story before. And yet, the person he's engaged to is a name I know I've never typedJJ Knight. One gay-porn website called them "two of the biggest gay porn stars in the industry"so there! JJ posted a photo of them together saying, "It's true we don't have it as easy as ordinary couples. But I can promise you that this is no ordinary love!! ( He is the man of my dreams and I am proud to call him my fiancé! )" You can tell it's the real thing. At the HustlaBall in Las Vegas earlier this year, JJ had sex with Brent in public. Awww, it's almost like Pretty Womanbut without the thigh-high boots! Of course, you can watch the video on our website. Of course, we wish them the best.
Our "Ask Billy" question required a bit of research. George in Fort Lauderdale writes, "Do you remember Jon Fleming? He appeared on an episode of Will & Grace as a really hot shirtless guy in Jack's acting class. There is a gay-porn video circulating and people say it's him. Is it?"
Many of my readers will remember Fleming from Dante's Cove, where he replaced original cast member Stephen Amell. He also turned up on CSI: NY, Medium and other showsusually as corpse number two! The porn video was allegedly filmed March 5. The guy calls himself "Luke" and claims to be 27 years oldthose were 27 hard years! Fleming, on the other hand, is 36and for that age, he looks OK. "Luke" says he's six feet tall, as is Fleming. With the stats out of the way, I did more research. Turns out, I wrote about him in 2011 when he played a male stripper on Femme Fatales. It's not a HUGE leap from full-frontal on Cinemax to gay porn. Except this time, his full-frontal has been fully fluffedand there's a whole lot more of him to see now on BillyMasters.com .
When CSI could stand for "Cock Scene Investigation," it's definitely time to end yet another column. Here's a Tony Award questionwas I the only one rooting for Patti LuPone to win? Sure, she didn't have a chance opposite Bette Midler, but how delicious it would have been to see Patti accept an award from Glenn Close! Moving along, be sure to check out BillyMasters.comthe site where no bulge goes unturned. If you have a question for me, send it to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Bette finishes her acceptance speech! Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
