Did Kristian just come out?

milkboys Blog, Clips & Spots 13 Comments

I remember reading an article a few years ago on the Destroyer Blog that argued, that we should stop caring about the sexual preferences of teen idols. I can’t quite remember anymore what the reasoning was (and I can’t find the post either, get a search function, Karl! :p) but it made a pretty good point.

I do believe though that there’s also an argument to be made about how out teen stars can have a positive impact on the lives of other queer teens just by being an example, someone they can identify with.

In either case, it’s fair to say that this should always happen on the terms of the star, they should have the choice in the matter and be able to decide if they want their sexuality to be a topic of public debate or not.

That being said… I think Kristian Kostov of very recent Eurovision fame came out in a more or less subtle way in a video (that he actually made before the Eurovision finals) with Australian contestant Isaiah Firebrace:

Fresh Milk (Updates)

If you follow us on Twitter or Patreon you probably know most of this by now but let’s catch up real quick with what’s new for everyone else.

The Server

I’m talking to someone who offered to help out with the hosting situation right now so this was hopefully the last time the site went down. They’re an actual, professional hoster so while it won’t be free, it will be cheaper than it is right now and we can still rely on professional maintenance of the server and not worry about getting kicked off all of sudden without any warning.

The Chat

I have connected our Patreon campaign to our chat. So you can now connect your personal Patreon account with your Discord account. That way you get a special user role in the chat that comes with some perks (among other things access to special channels like the behind the scenes blog, the details can be found on the campaign page).

We also added some new channels to the chat. #introductions is the place for you to tell the world how amazingly interesting you are (or just share your dick size, whatever floats your goats). And #homework is there to help you get through school, uni or whatever else is throwing disgusting algebra at you.

So next time you’re bored or just want to pick some flowers just go and check out the chat, it’s a pretty sweet place with loads of nice people. And Blue.

The Quest

Talking about the chat: One of our resident catboys, which you probably remember from Cute Caturday *9, is thinking about applying for a role as an actor with our friends over at Helix Studios. So if you want to let him know that you support that endeavour, head over to this post on his Tumblr and like it ;)

The Patreon campaign is off to a good start but, in combination with me being short on money at the moment, not yet at a point where it can cover the server costs on its own (after fees it paid out €66 this month).

That means that the site will likely be unavailable again for two or three weeks starting tomorrow. I know that’s annoying, trust me, no one is more frustrated about this than me. I’ll try whatever I can to get it back online as soon as possible.

PS for Patreon supporters: Mails about your rewards went out last week, please let me know if you didn’t receive yours. The private blog is ready but with the upcoming downtime I’ll look into hosting it somewhere else, I’ll be in touch about your log-in credentials asap.

BRB!

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, I’m fighting a pretty pesky cold for about two weeks now (as you can tell by my constant coughing if you spent any amount of time in a Discord voice chat with me lately). I’ll try to get back to a normal schedule of at least 1-2 posts per day asap.

Have some cute stuff in the meantime.

ugh

People keep asking me for a blog like milkboys but with girls. I can’t really think of any way to pull that off without it being just another Tumblr. But I kind of like the idea of posting a girl here every now and then. Not every day, maybe not even every week, just sometimes.

Why care about genders if you can’t tell the difference anyway ;p

I know that this blog is not only frequented by gay guys and as I mentioned before I’d love to make this place a bit more colourful, offer something for all niches of the queer rainbow and as a pan/bi guy myself I can tell you one thing: It’s really easy to feel left out nowadays when you get crap from (parts of) the straight and the gay side for not really caring about the gender of the person you fall for.

So, what do you think? Is that something we could, or should, tackle?


Become a milkboys Patreon & get some sweet Rewards!

milkboys Blog, Official 10 Comments

The milkboys Patreon campaign is now launched :) Patreon is a way to financially support creators so they can spend more time doing what you, and they, love. In return you’ll get some fun rewards (like access to a special chat, a private blog and much more)!

You can still do one-time donations of course, if you prefer that!

 milkboys on patreon

Here’s what I wrote as a little introduction on Patreon:

I founded milkboys when I was a queer teenager myself, frustrated with the lack of online resources available to me and my friends. Most LGBT sites are catering to “gay men”. Not bisexuals or trans teens or even queer allies.

I wanted a site that speaks to everyone on our broad & colourful queer spectrum. A place where you can feel at home, meet people, read about how the society & politics around us are changing and having an impact on our daily lives but also have the option to just look at pretty people for a while without feeling judged.

milkboys in its current form is going into its 9th year now and I’d love to make it grow, more colourful, entertaining and more accessible to people who still have a hard time finding a place online where they can just be.

If you become a patreon of this project you will enable me to spend more time working on milkboys, update the site a lot more often than currently possible and create more original content (photos, videos, articles and so on) and in return will get a look behind the scenes and one or two other little things as a thank you ;) Thank you for your loyalty & incredibly generous support!

I will refine and add more details about the goals and rewards over the coming days! I’ll also try to get as many of the rewards as possible to people who donated before. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

Milky New Year!

Need some ideas for new year’s resolutions? Here’s a few suggestions: Do something nice for someone you love, do something nice for a stranger, try to have at least one very special orgasm, embrace your emotions, don’t feel bad about asking for help, don’t feel guilty about that cake and most importantly: stay fabulous!

Queer Resources

milkboys Blog, Links 5 Comments

I’d like to collect a list of resources (hotlines, websites,  youth centres, shelters etc.) for queer people. I’m especially (but not only) interested in resources for specific groups (e.g. for queer people of colour, for transgender youth and so on). I’d also love to collect resources for as many different countries as possible.

So if you know any phone number, website or place that might be useful for such a list please leave a comment below. Thanks! <3

Mistakes were made…

milkboys Blog 26 Comments

As many of you know I ran a quick GoFundMe campaign here a few months ago. Since then the site went down several times and, understandably, this raised questions about how this could happen considering the success of that campaign.

The truth is that I still don’t have a single Cent from said campaign because I made a pretty severe mistake by trusting PayPal and trying to use them to transfer money. They froze my account and the funds within for 180 days. So while I will get access to the money eventually I still had to rely on two incredibly generous blog readers to bring the site back in the meantime.

During all this I ran into some serious financial trouble myself–to the point where I’m not able to pay my rent anymore. I got a part-time job after uni and I’m currently looking for another one but with rent, energy bills, food, debt etc. it’s not quite working out at the moment.

I’m aware that most people who donated did so for the site and not myself so I’m committed to using the funds from the GoFundMe campaign for milkboys only, in fact I want to pick up the pace again and create more self-made content and grow the site.

But I’m desperate enough, as embarrassing as it is, to ask for your help again. I started a 2nd GoFundMe campaign here (not using PayPal again obviously) and I’m gonna be upfront with you about the fact that money anyone might donate towards it is gonna be used for personal things like rent and food.

If you feel uncomfortable with this (I know that I will get a lot of flak for this move)  please just ignore this campaign, it has nothing to do with this site and none of you should in any way feel obliged to give money to some guy running a random blog.

Thanks so much <3 

Back!

Here we go. I’m in the process of setting up a Patreon page for milkboys. It will let people who can afford & are willing to support the site donate on a monthly basis. $1, $10… whatever works for you.

Patreon lets you create different donation tiers with varying rewards for the donors. For example: When you donate $2/month you get a link to a site of your choice (e.g. your Tumblr) on milkboys, for $5/month you get a nudie of me and maybe for $50 you get all that plus a milkboys shirt on top. Stuff like that. I’m still trying to figure out what good rewards would look like so please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Last but not least thanks to the generous folks who brought the site back. Everyone who donated before will get access to the rewards as well of course, more about that later.

*just kidding about the nudie ;)
