Many of you haven’t been receiving your copies of Genre lately. Even after trying to rectify the situation. Something to do with dwindling cash flow at the magazine? That wasn’t what editor-in-chief Neal Boulton told us; he blamed it on a new printing company. Oh, sorry, that’s ex-editor-in-chief. Neal Boulton is gone.
Officially, he “quit.” Boulton, who’s famous for promoting the fuck out of himself — not necessarily a bad thing — spun his exit to Page Six as a story of betterment. By resigning from his post at Genre, Boulton says he can work on his book Sex Across America and work on his bisexual love site BastardLife.com. Because Neal is bisexual!
(He also famously orchestrated the ouster of then-editor Chris Chiompi in July 2007, pitching Window Media chief David Unger on revamping the magazine. The jury is out on whether that ever happened.)
Well. We wish him the best. If you’ve ever met Neal, you know he’s a chatty cathy type who, on the face of things, means no harm. Then again, we’ve heard our share of stories that depict him as quite the opposite. So let’s close this chapter on the straight-to-gay-to-bisexual now-former editor-in-chief and see where this path takes him. Ten bucks says it’s either a bathhouse or The Cock.
I love David’s bitchiness towards this idiot!!! SCORE!
Genre who? Does anyone even read this rag?
Neal is an idiot!
I’m absolutely positive this jerk quit or decided to give it up because he was not paid just as the people from Window Media have not paid anyone that has worked for them in the last 2 years. They are all a bunch of liars anyway, so I don’t trust anything that comes out of his mouth. I’m sure the book thing is all BS as well as his dumb bastardlife…
This fool doesn’t even know which team he wants to play for so why do we think he can run a successful “gay” publication. As the old adage goes “Money talks and bullshit walks” so let’s wave fare thee well to this egotistical piece of crap.

@Joe… “Money talks and bullshit walks?” Well that is old school for sure. Let’s try something more topical and to the point: “Boulton rolls to The Cock, then trolls.” Or “Genre sucks and Editor Ducks.” Or, “Gay rags fold cause ads aren’t sold.”
The magazine didn’t suck, it was far better than it had ever been. But the company never paid anyone. That and Neal Bolton did what he always does and just rolled his big ego’d enterouge in, wrecked havac, then rolled out just in the nick of time.
He is having the last laugh I bet because we queens keep writing about him after each little move he makes. I call for a boycott of this man.
Well one thing is for sure, he knows how to market himself. First the “outing,” which got him a gay magazine. Then the Bi thing, which he turned to launch a bi website with ads and promotions. All of which was a play to sell a book and a show so that he could dodge the bullet of losing a buck like the rest of us in the flat economy.

The jealousy factor on this site is so over the top and obvious. I worked with him once, slept with him twice, loved it, and also loved his ideas, and his energy. If you know him, he’s actually very nice, never stops moving and thinking and always has a nice thing or to to say to you. Bi does exist, but not nearly as much as bitchiness on this site. Lighten up girls.
@Bitches of HK: I am with you. I think he’s a sweetheart of a guy who has goals and knows how to make things happen. Editor In Chief of magazines, book author, subject of a show? I’ve seen him on TV numerous times. I think you guys should calm down and stop being such haters.
Ok fine he is cute. His butt is cute. And he’s fit and got that swimmer body thing going…long hair, too. I read Genre and Bastardlife and I don’t get why Queerty has a problem with him. At least he fights back in the press instead just letting all of you trample him. That’s a hot quality.
What’s a magazine?
Did you notice that he announced it where he vicariously lives his life — on Page Six in the NYPost? I don’t know how he is as an editor. I can’t see any difference from the Ciompi era – or Richard Settles era, for that matter. But he has one great undeniable gift: for self-promotion.
@bitches of HK:
And we needed to know all that because why?
As a commenter said elsewhere, you wasted a lot of brain cells on that, and what will it gain you?
“Many of you haven’t been receiving your copies of Genre lately.”
What about those of us out here who never asked to receive Genre magazine,
but the damned thing keeps coming every month.
blow ME joe
@bitches of HK: You can defend the guy all you want, but the fact that I find him pretentious, annoying, full of it and not worthy of editing a magazine is not me being “a bitchy girl.” Its me rejecting his product and persona as a gay consumer. Evidently like a lot of other consumers and advertisers. Its homophobic to respond that rejection with an anti-gay slur, and speaks to just the sort of “I’m better than you because I’m pansexual” bullshit we were turned off by in the 1st place.
You queens are tired.
It is classic Genre/HX/Window to blame the printing company, who they may or may not pay in the end. Classic fare from a group of some of the dirtiest scum on the earth.

Wow! Gay men really know how to hate bi men.
