Machozone, a free online digital art expo, is an antidote to anti-gay censorship and prejudice fostered by wealthy corporations like Verizon which owns Tumblr where adult content is banned.
The Machozone Galleries preserve images originally posted on Tumblr 2008 through 2018 that today are blocked from view thanks to corporate censorship.
You can also browse Machozone Posts to view uncensored images from previous years that Tumblr blocks you from enjoying today.
About Madeira Desouza, the curator of Machozone:
I am a gay male artist and storyteller known as Madeira Desouza of Las Vegas. I emphasize respect and admiration for highly masculine men. See examples of my work creating 3D digital art.
My sensual and photorealistic digital illustrations and storytelling have appeared online continuously every year since 2007 and continue into 2019.
COMPARISON TO OTHER ARTISTS — I create explicit erotic stylized masculine men presented in a beautifully brutal way with fearlessness. I have a large body of work that you will understand and appreciate best if you compare with very similar works of these underground artists:
- Tom of Finland
- Bondageskin from Germany
- Tagame from Japan
- Greasetank from the United States
- Dom “Etienne” Orejudos from the United States
- The Hun from the United States

USA BARA — The stories and illustrations that I produce belong within a strictly USA version of the bara underground art genre as envisioned by someone who is a native of the United States of America rather than some other nation. Take an enjoyable self-guided tour of USA BARA.
Bara describes both a genre and a clear philosophy of storytelling that offers art and fictional stories with gay male same-sex feelings and sexuality identity that are realistic (rather than romanticized) depictions of gay male life that sometimes include violent and exploitative behaviors.
