Get To Know Instagrammers And Business Owners Sunny Lee and Bowen Xiong

I recently discovered some new Instagram hotties and did some light investigating into them as well.

A couple days ago, Towleroad posted a mash-up post full of mini-stories and a small shout out for these two Instagram hotties.

The first is Instagrammer is Sunny Lee and the second is his boyfriend Bowen Liang (though, they only captioned it “Sunny Lee and bf.”)

After initially thinking, “Well, hello,” and looking through Sunny Lee’s Instagram account, I decided to share them with you all.

Of course, what else can I tell you about these guys? Honestly, there’s not much to go on, and I didn't want to put their info out there too much.

What I do know is that Sunny Lee’s boyfriend, Bowen Liang, owns a tanning and nail studio named Bodyblush Tanning in Shanghai. Sunny Lee then helps out with the store.

Even better, the studio is not only run by these two gay men, but it's English-speaker inclusive too!

Plus, their instagram accounts are full of beauty shots, workout videos, pictures with their cute dog, and photos of each other (both together and separately). These two seem to be a loving and committed couple.

So, check out these hot guys on Instagram and consider stopping by their store if you’re ever in Shanghai.

Instagram Unfairly Deleted The "Greeks Come True" Calendar Account

Instagram has deleted yet another male calander’s account without any explanation.

Instagram’s “no go” rules in terms of photos depicting the body/nudity are that they will ban “photos, videos and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks.”

Unfortunately, it looks like the account of the Greeks Come True calendar has become the latest target of Instagram’s ridiculous “attempt” to withhold those rules, according to Queerty.

While the calendar itself shows the men in all types of poses and clothing arrangements (or lack thereof), the Instagram account maintained a lustful yet tasteful look.

Unfortunately, as they shared in a statement recently, Instagram decided that wasn’t good enough.

“We have always strived to promote a healthy, archetypal image of male beauty, one that echoes our cultural heritage as Greeks while in addition challenges the norms imposed by mainstream media,” they shared in the statement.

Unfortunately, it seems that their account is still down despite protests, but don’t be worried. You can still get your Greek fill.

The Facebook account, which is the parent company of Instagram, is still up and running and still have several of the same photos as the ones that were once on Instagram.

Plus, you can still buy the calendar which puts caution to the wind and shows the men in all their glory.

Actor and singer Keiynan Lonsdale is making social media tributes to male model Zak Frio after enjoying a recent trip with him.

The two enjoyed time together at the Joshua Tree National Park in California.

According to GayStarNews, the 26-year-old Love, Simon actor made sure to give a shout out to his companion when he made a social media post about the trip.

Then on Twitter, Keiynan also thanked “his boy” for the weekend away while posting even more pictures.

But it wasn’t just Keiynan that had all the fun. Zak also shared the love on his own Instagram account where he said:

“A weekend I’ll remember for life. Find Yourself Someone You Can Be 100% Yourself With 100% Of The Time. Someone who holds you accountable to be the very best you can be in this life.”

@keiynanlonsdale thank you for always Inspiring me. Thank you for encouraging me to be myself and to be my very best. Life is a crazy adventure and it is a blessing to explore and grow with you by my side. Magic.”

 

A post shared by ZAK FRIO (@zakfrio) on

Keiynan Lonsdale’s role in Love, Simon has caused a rise in his popularity. It doesn’t hurt that the actor and singer came out as bisexual last year after working on the film.

Since then, the actor for DC show The Flash has created sexy music videos, songs about kissing boys, and has shared how appreciative he was to be a part of such an important LGBTQ movie.

Ariana Grande And Pete Davidson Take A Step Back From Instagram

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson became the center of the social media spotlight when they announced her relationship soon after her split from Mac Miller. In the wake of their surprise engagement, their popularity as a couple has skyrocketed and become the center of scrutiny, praise, and overall attention. People across all social media following their relationship has led to endless memes and the speculation that Pete Davidson is packing “down under” (from this theory comes the term, “Big Dick Energy”). Both celebrities have been very vocal about their issues with anxiety and Pete Davidson has spoken out on being diagnosed as bipolar.

However, this week Pete Davidson announced on his Instagram story that he has deactivated his account to step away from social media and work on his mental health. While Ariana Grande has maintained her presence on all of her social media platforms, her past 7 Instagram posts have been uploaded with the comments disabled- keeping fans from replying or critics from spewing hate.

While it may be fun and games to talk about celebrity relationships and speculate on theories, rumors, and ideas, it is essential to remember that they’re people too. From the constant hate about dating so soon after her break up to the people that critique her new relationship in the first place, it is understandable that they may need a break from the thousands of people who think their opinions matter the most.

Instagram's Removal of Same-Sex Kiss Due to "Community Guidelines" Sparks Fury

Instagram stirred up some hot water after removing a photo of a gay kiss for “violating community guidelines.”

The controversial pic in question? Photographer Stella Asia Consonni’s snap of long-term gay couple Jordan Bowen and Luca Lucifer smooching passionately, with the caption, “is pizza is the only thing better than love? [sic]”

Instagram’s removal sparked some immediate outrage. Among those who spoke out in support of Consonni were musicians Olly Alexander of Years and Years and Jade Thirlwall of Little Mix.

Bowen wrote on his Instagram account:

“My relationship of seven years with @iamlucalucifer reduced to a Community Guideline. Earlier this was removed from @stellaasiaconsonni and flagged as inappropriate. @instagram spoon feeds us with rainbows and hashtags to appear in solidarity but it seems real people in love have no place here. Earlier this was removed from @stellaasiaconsonni and flagged as inappropriate. @instagram spoon feeds us with rainbows and hashtags to appear in solidarity but it seems real people in love have no place here.”

 

An Instagram spokesperson said in a statement: “This post was removed in error and we are sorry. It has since been reinstated.”

“This is just a teeny tiny event in the grand scheme of things,” said Consonni once the photo was restored to her page, “but seeing all the amazing response certainly restored a little of my faith in humanity.”

“There is still a long way to go in the fight against homophobia,” she continues in another rainbow post. “This goes to all my beautiful friends that have to deal with this BS all the time.”

Madonna's Photoshop of Beyoncé Raises a Few Eyebrows

The Beyhive is all in a tizzy after a Photoshopped post by Madonna hit Instagram.

Perhaps you heard: last week, Beyoncé and Jay-Z dropped surprise album Everything Is Love, and a glossy Louvre-set music video for lead single “Apesh*t.”

This weekend, Madonna Insta’d a photo from Everything Is Love, feature Bey and J admiring paintings on the wall of the world’s largest art museum… only Madonna replaced all the paintings in the pic with her own album covers, including True Blue, Confessions on a Dance Floor, and Erotica.

The caption read: “Learning from the master…………..lol. #art #equals #freedom."

Was M just having some fun, or was she intending to shade one of today’s reigning queens of pop?

Many Bey fans were outraged. It must be said, there’s some validity to criticizing Madge for posting a picture of two black entertainers looking at a white “Master.”

Was this maybe just a little bit tone deaf? This wouldn’t be the first time Madge’s judgment hasn’t been spot-on. Leading up to the release of her last album Rebel Heart, she appropriated the likenesses of Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King, Jr., which led to an understandable uproar prompting an apology from the Queen of Pop.

Maybe some of the feedback about her Beyoncé and Jay-Z post got to Madonna, because she edited the post… twice. Now the caption merely reads

“Learning.…………..lol.”

In the past, public relations between M and B have been generally amicable.

In 2013, in the wake of her first surprise, self-titled album, Beyoncé said,“I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire.”

In 2015, Madonna told Andy Cohen in the pages of Entertainment Weekly:

“[Beyoncé] is a great performer and she puts on a show.”

Daniel Newman Reacts After Fans Realized His Water Skiing Companion Is A Porn Star

Walking Dead star Daniel Newman has responded after fans realized his ski buddy was a Sean Cody performer.

Newman recently posted the above photo of him and a friend having fun on the water. While that initially seemed like a one and done situation, it soon became more when a few fans recognized Newman's pal.

As one fan wrote, "Is that Tanner from Sean Cody?"

Daniel then answered the comment directly by saying, "Lol. Whoa. I’m amazed you all know him. Love you guys but I don’t talk about my private life."

From there, fans then went into overdrive while trying to figure out exactly how the two know each other, if they're more than friends, and where exactly they were.

One fan speculated that Newman was at Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Georgia (since Daniel Newman is from Georgia), but no confirmation was made.

Last year, Newman came out a bisexual through a Youtube video.

He then later talked to The Advocate to expressively state that he is bisexual and to touch on bisexual erasure.

"People magazine even said that I was gay. I had just told the reporter about being bisexual and having girlfriends and things like that.

‘She was like, “Oh, cool. Are you in a relationship?” And I was like, “Yeah, I have an incredible boyfriend.” And she’s like, “Oh, cool. It’s awesome you came out as gay.”‘

Former Glee Star Kevin McHale Shared A Picture Of Him And His Boyfriend Cuddling In Bed

Former Glee star Kevin McHale posted an adorable picture of himself and his boyfriend on Instagram.

Last month, Glee fans and people of the internet swarmed McHale’s Instagram account after he shared a picture of himself holding what looked like another man’s hand. Many celebrated this subtle and progressive way of coming out and wished McHale and his newly announced boyfriend the best of luck and love.

And now, McHale is confirming the identity of said boyfriend in a recent Instagram post.

Many believed that the mysterious hand belonged to fellow actor Austin McKenzie, because the original picture contained a single emoji. That emoji was the ASL hand gesture for “I love you.”

Due to the fact that McKenzie is best known for the role of Melchior Gabor in Deaf West’s Broadway revival of Spring Awakening, McKenzie was a strong guess.

Now, it seems that the guess was correct. The latest Instagram picture from the former Glee star shows McHale lying down with a sleeping boy snuggled up next to him. While the boy remains untagged, many are certain from the boy’s side profile that it is McKenzie.

It would make sense as not only have to two been popping up in each other’s Instagram accounts, but they also co-starred on Dustin Lance Black’s “Until We Rise.”

Now with tv cameras turned away from them long enough to build a relationship alone, they’re turning the cameras back on and letting the world know about their love. And, we’re happy to see it.

Congratulations, guys!

These Bears Created A Parody To Calvin Klein's Denim Campaign

Some men on Instagram are celebrating the beauty of a full figure.

At the end of last year, fashion brand Calvin Klein released a new denim campaign with A$ap Rocky at the center of it. The rapper and the fashion brand joined together to celebrate hot clothes and hot men of color.

The video below will give you a quick peak into the campaign.

But, some men on the internet thought that wasn’t enough. They thought the statement of male beauty could go a step farther.

Model and Instagram darling Darnel Ghramm from New Jersey thought it would be great if the denim campaign had gone with a group of bears and bigger bodied men.

32-year-old Ghramma then got a couple models together last week, pulled out a few denim shirts and jackets, and made a parody photo on Instagram.

In one of the posts, which are all found below, Ghramm wrote the lines:

“I decided to bring together a few plus males with different ethnicities, height, sizes & shapes to answer these questions & recreate the 'Plus Size Male' shoot Calvin Klein missed out on. We EXIST and we are constituted by many different things. Whether big, tall or simply fall outside of the worlds standards, we are ALL handsome and worthy, FACT!”

So tell us, which are your favorites? The top photos, the bottom ones, or are you a fan of them all?
