YEAR IN REVIEW

Porn Stars, Gay Celebs, OWS: The Top Ten Hottest Queerty Posts of 2011 Revealed!

  Before the big ball drops, Queerty is taking a look back at one of the most bizarre years in all things gay. Forget Osama Bin Laden’s death and Beyonce‘s baby bump—2011 will always be remembered as the year Chris Crocker got hot. The year that Don Lemon came out. The year that twinks with gay pasts took over MTV. (And we’re not even talking about Taylor Lautner—who made the list for other reasons). We’ve compiled the top 10 posts of the year based entirely on that modern-day barometer of popularity, page views! And just like high-school cliques, the most popular posts of 2011 were pretty but not always nice. Click through to browse the top stories on Queerty in 2011.
10. Sexy Boys Gone Bad: 7 Porn Stars Who Turned to Crime The bad-boy attitude we find irresistible on screen can lead to a dark path for certain troubled souls. We compiled a rundown of gay-porn performers—like Aden Jaric, above—who’ve fought the law and lost. Featured comment: “My heart broke when I saw that he wouldn’t be doing porn anymore [thanks to] a life sentence for murder.”–Tim
  9. Guess Which YouTube Star Is Going Into Gay Porn?

Sorry, Davey Wavey but Chris Crocker was our favorite vlogger of 2011. He left the bad blond hair extensions to Britney, grew a stubble, and started beefing up. Next thing you know ChiChi LaRue is directing his porn debut. And Queerty was g

8. Taylor Lautner’s Hands All But Confirm His Rumored Homosexuality Who needs sign language when you’ve got waaay sassy she-wolf jazz hands like hers? Featured comment: “The only reason anyone might have to discuss Mr. Lautner’s sexual orientation is if you were about to have sex with him. And, while it may be a hard truth for some of you, none of us is going to have that opportunity.”– BusterLA
7. Gay Men Rejoice As Adam Levine’s Gay Brother Revealed To Be Hottie Too “I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired. Trust me, you’re born with it. My brother [Michael] is gay, and we knew when he was two. We all knew,” Adam Levine told Out. Featured comment: “Michael Levine is a hot mess!”The A-List‘s Austin Armacost (a.k.a. the sty calling the pig messy)
6. Six Athletes-Turned-Porn-Stars That Work Up A Good Hard Sweat A few more daring athletes have chosen to go the whole nine yards and do ankles-in-the-air gay porn. We dug up a roster of gay-porn jocks for you to enjoy, each with their own scandalous stories. Featured comment: “Ronaldo is next.”– Stickitinhard69
5. PHOTOS: The Cute Shirtless Dudes of Occupy Wall Street Hey, we get it: Wall Street is broken. The 99% are getting shafted. The banks and corporations are running amok. But if we can’t fight the power and revel in a little male beauty—especially some unmanicured, fuzzy, soft, natural-body hippie beauty (one of our favorite flavors)—then, well, this isn’t any America we want to be a part of. Featured comment: “I want to see his bod, Queerty! Quick! Before more of the uppity serious boring gays start moaning about ‘sexualizing’ sexy hot dudes with their bods on display and ruin my erection!”– Lefty
4. 8 Notable People Who Came Out In The Past Year The past twelve months have seen a number of big-name outings—athletes, journalists, actors, businessmen. None is more important that the disclosure of everyday people like you, of course. But just the same, we’ve made a list of notable folks who announced they’re LGB or T since last National Coming Out Day. Featured comment: “I came out to my family after seeing Randy Phillips [above] on YouTube. Thank you so much for giving me the courage, Randy. I have just retired from the Navy after 20 years and some of my co-workers knew but all they cared about was that I was their friend and a good worker. I hope that everyone that is still in the service get to breath a little easier. I’m proud of all of you out there.”–Larry
3. XY Boytoy Colton Haynes All Grown Up & Having Legal Regrets Now That He’s On MTV Queerty was threatened with legal action if we did not remove the “private, obscene, lewd and pornographic photographs” of actor Colton Haynes kissing another guy—images he posed for as a minor in the March 2006 issue of gay mag XY. This happened around the time that Haynes’s new MTV show Teen Wolf premiered, coincidentally. Haynes’ pictures aren’t any more pornographic or private than a Guess jeans ad. So we’re posting them once more. Featured comment: “Does anyone else remember both Haynes and the other guy in those photos having a strong MySpace presence back in the day? They claimed to be boyfriends and there was lots of lovey dovey back and forth between the two. I’m pretty sure that’s why XY covered them in the first place (aside from them being hot, obviously). I don’t see how it’s possible to retreat back into the closet from all this.”–Marc D’Urso

    A dubious distinction at best!

    Dustin Zito: young, dumb and cum.

    Does anyone know if Colton Haynes himself ever commented on the pics? I know Dustin Zito denounced his, but I don’t like I’ve seen Haynes talk about it.

    @Bryan: *think

    Speaking of porn stars in trouble, Ryan Idol was supposed to have been sentenced for attempted murder on December 9 and there hasn’t been a peep of news about it, if it even happened or was postponed. ??

    Please, Adam Levine, wanting to dress up as a girl is no true indicative of sexual orientation and that is obviously what you are getting at, since two-year-olds can barely form sentences. If you are going to become an advocate, at least do some research.

    On to the good part: Randy really is such an inspiration. This entire story really felt bittersweet and I could perfectly relate (except I found no acceptance from either side… yeah). He looks really happy in his latest video and I truly wish him all the best in this upcoming year.
