Learn about the American Leatherboy who ran for a state Senate seat. And the Mr. New York City Bear who has appeared on VH1's Behind the Music. And the openly gay actor who had a day named in his honor by a city mayor. These are just a few of the 48 intriguing gentlemen, from coast to coast, profiled and photographed in Award-Winning Men: Up Close and Personal with Gay Honorees.

Get the inside scoop from numerous titleholders, such as Mr. International Gay Rodeo Association and the Emperor of San Francisco's Imperial Court. Other award-winners include singers, comedians, filmmakers, authors, athletes, erotic performers, and everyday activists. A unique opportunity to meet recipients of a wide array of accolades-ranging from a fun nod for Best Buns to Broadway's coveted Tony Award!

And the award goes to Ed Karvoski Jr. for his 'Award-Winning Men,' a diverse collection of profiles in pride. A fun and inspirational read, it will make you proud to be gay and in such good company.
