Freedom Is Coming!
Most things on the Internet have their ups and downs. Facebook is up (is it still?), Myspace is down. I still remember when I first got the net being addicted to AIM and mIRC... Same goes the world of most sites and blogs. Favorite Hunks started out with a small devoted readership, then somewhere between year two and three spiked to a whopping number of daily hits that even shocked me. Slowly over year four and five, the number diminished slowly but surely, but this past year has stabilized maintaining an impressive number of daily visitors.
I understand this, things change. I know in some ways FH, and blogs in general, (especially now with tumblr) are already a little old school. I am OK with this. There are sites I used to visit daily, that I only go to once a month or so, some not at all. There are a few however, that still require a visit every day or two. Brenton Parry's Aussielicious continues to be a place I love to return to. I have written before how Brenton and his blog were one of the inspirations for how FH evolved. Brenton combines hot men, (of course) along with stories from the media, his photography and best of all aspects of his life. All are blended together to create a welcoming, in both appearance and in heart, place to drop by.

Brenton is now in the process of getting ready for his second exhibit scheduled to coincide with the Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras festival in the second half of February 2013. His first, Shrouded, focused on some of the hang-ups and shame that he, and all of us, sometimes struggle with when feeling not quite good enough. Brenton describes Freedom as more positive and hopeful! Check out the incredible preview video above to give you a taste of what of whats to come!
