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.

This amusing collection is sure to make gay men across the country stand up at attention! A virtual gay pride extravaganza, Karvoski's 'Award-Winning Men' honors the unique, unsung heroes of our community.

Ed Karvoski Jr. has brought together a gang of award-winning men as eclectic as his own career. These wonderful gay men remind us that sometimes awards come not from the 'Academy,' but from the journey of life.

Anyone looking for role models and examples of community success should read 'Award-Winning Men.' Bravo to Ed Karvoski Jr. for documenting these men and their achievements. My question: When is the next installment?
