The seventh installment, "Is It Still Jood To Ya?", is featured in the short story collection Visible Lives: Three Stories in Tribute to E. Lynn Harris (2010), which was recognized with a Best Anthology nomination from the African American Literary Awards. The series chronicles the relationship between a journalist from Brooklyn and a homeboy-bike messenger from Harlem. B-Boy Blues is taught in gay/queer studies and African-American/multicultural literature courses in high schools and colleges/universities around the world. A theatrical adaptation of B-Boy Blues will debut during the 2013 Downtown Urban Theater Festival; a film version is in development.

Mr. Hardy has also penned biographies on filmmaker Spike Lee and pop music group Boyz II Men. His first theatrical production, Confessions of a Homo Thug Porn Star-a one-man show about adult film actor Tiger Tyson-won the Downtown Urban Theater Festival's 2010 Best Short Prize.

In addition, Mr. Hardy is an award-winning entertainment feature writer and music/cultural critic. A 1993 honors graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, his byline has appeared in Entertainment Weekly, Essence, Newsweek, The Source, Vibe, The Village Voice, and The Washington Post. His essay on disco/dance legend Sylvester, "Living Proof," was a 2005 GLAAD Media Award Finalist.
