"It's terrifying. It's scary. We have to get out and vote."—Lil Nas X's response to the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Michael Bloomberg has found a way to help Joe Biden get more votes in Florida: He's paying convicted felons. Well, he isn't paying them directly. Bloomberg has raised $16 million to pay the fines of 32K felons in Florida so that they can vote. I'm not sure if he's only doing this for Democratic felons, or just felons in general. But it's been my experience that whenever money changes hands with a Florida felon, the payer pretty much calls the shots.

The gay hook-up app Hornet ( you know—the one nobody uses ) had a poll about the upcoming election. Biden won with 51 percent. When El Presidente was told that 45 percent of gay men polled would vote for him, he said "Great!" He probably doesn't realize that most of those men were actually looking to get "poled"—or that being on the bottom was the more popular position!

After all these months of doing "Billy Masters LIVE" every Tuesday and Thursday ( at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT ), I thought I'd heard it all. Until this Tuesday ( Sept. 29 ), when I welcome Loni Anderson! I've got TONS of things to ask her about—starting with playing Mariska Hargitay's mother, Pamela Anderson's mother and Tori Spelling's mother! She's played a lot of mothers—including the mother of a gay son in My Sister is So Gay. This'll be a REALLY dishy show. Tune into Billy Masters TV on YouTube or Facebook, or just go to BillyMasters.com/TV.

We've often discussed the assertion that gay roles should only be played by gay actors. But what if they want to play straight roles? After all, there are more of those than gay roles. But if gay roles should be played by gay actors, doesn't it stand to reason that straight roles should be played by straight actors? That's not how sexy Charlie Carver sees it: "I don't want to be limited as a gay man or a gay actor. I don't want to be limited to only playing gay roles." So gay roles should only be played by gay actors, but straight roles can be played by anyone?

Weeks ago I wondered whether I should watch Love Island. I didn't bother, but turns out that one of the guys on the show actually appeared in gay porn. Apparently, Noah Purvis ( I slept with a Walter Purvis—I wonder if they're related ) previously worked for Corbin Fisher under the name "Ethan." Someone figured out "Ethan" and Noah were one and the same, and, poof, Purvis disappeared from the island.

CBS issued the following statement: "It has been brought to our attention that cast member Noah Purvis provided false information on his application to 'Love Island', which violates his contestant agreement. He has been removed from the show." Noah hasn't addressed the situation directly, but he did post the following on Instagram: "OHANA means family. FAMILY means no one gets left behind or forgotten. All of you out here have made me feel this and I can't express how loved I feel for the first time in my life." If you'd like to see how he made love with other men, check out BillyMasters.com .

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Jasper in Maine: "Someone sent me these nude photos of a guy who has been on Broadway. Do you know who he is?"

Fans around the globe constantly ask me to identify nude photos. Jasper sent me several pics which I easily IDed as Taylor Collins. But, let me correct him: Taylor isn't technically a Broadway performer. To date, he has not appeared on the Great White Way. He and his fantastic physique have, however, turned up in Chicago—the musical, not the city ( although it was a national tour, so perhaps both ).

Thus far, Broadway has eluded him. Taylor has, however, made up for this large gaping hole in his resume by filling other gaping holes—and having some filled. He and his beau, Alessio Vega, have appeared in ... well, to call them "art films" isn't exactly correct. Let's just say there's a plethora of footage—some of the couple alone, one with Max Konnor and one where the couple is joined by another twosome. These bits of celluloid and a variety of photos await you on BillyMasters.com .

When I'm identifying stray penii, it's time to end yet another column. I'm kinda like that old show, Finder of Lost Loves—with Simon MacCorkindale or Tony Franciosa or someone else who is either deceased or much older than moi. Anyway, that's what I do. That and update BillyMasters.com—the site that's filled many a gaping hole. If you have a question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before Bloomberg buys my vote. Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
