Gay Travel: 3 Destinations To Escape The Summer Heat

A summer sunset with the sun lowering in the distance.

When the city streets sizzle, it’s time to get the heck out of town.

Crowded urban centers are really the last place you want to be at the height of summer heat.  If you’re anything like me, you’d rather be somewhere close to a large body of water, a breezy back porch and gorgeous views.

And you’d much prefer if that idyllic place was friendly to gay travelers.  So, for your vacationing pleasure, we’re highlighting 3 of the most gay-friendly vacation spots in the country.  Read on to find out what makes them special and a few of our suggestions of what to do when you’re there.

Gay Marriage: Clela Rorex Is A Super Hero

Sue Larson (L) and her friend Clela Rorex (R)

AUDIO: Clela Rorex, a former County Clerk in Boulder, Colorado, tells her friend Sue Larson about issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples in 1975.
I read about Clela Rorex a few weeks ago, and her story made me tear up, and I nearly cried. This four minute audio story is amazing. Imagine it’s 1975, and two gay men come to your office to get a marriage license.

Clela Rorex tells the story to her friend Sue Larson, and you can listen to it, and read the transcript, if you click on “READ MORE.”

Dan Savage Is A Gay Idiot: OOPS He Did It Again

Sex columnist Dan Savage
I’m a gay man and I’m almost 50. I watched my peers when I was a very young adult fuck themselves to death. 
Dan Savage --- Death, Sex & Money Podcast

By Roy Steele

I really don’t know what to think of Dan Savage. I think that his heart is in the right place mostly, and that largely he’s been a good ambassador for the LGBT movement. He’s handsome, smart and articulate. He doesn’t shy away from verbal tussles, and he’s not afraid to call out religious hypocrisy when he sees it. Those are all pluses in my book.

Dan’s take down of Rick ‘Sicko’ Santorum is legendary, and that action alone will hold a special place in my heart forever.

Then there’s the controversy that seems to follow him everywhere. He has a habit of opening mouth and inserting his own foot fairly often, and that’s where he gets a big fat demerit.

Violence, Murder And War Is Preventable

Violence, Murder and War

MH 17 Crash, Gaza Strip Violence, NYPD Police Brutality, Innocent Woman Murdered in Detroit, are all in the news. These deaths are preventable. Who has the balls to do anything about it?

By Roy Steele

Over the last week the 24 news cycle has been understandably consumed with news about Malaysian Airlines flight 17, that was destroyed in a missile attack, last week over eastern Ukraine. It’s horrifying to think that there are individuals freely living on our planet, who are responsible for this preventable tragedy.

3 Gay Cheers! RuPaul’s Drag Race Wins TV Critics Award

Two executives accepted the TCA Award for "RuPaul's Drag Race"

By Roy Steele

I don’t know about you, but when I looked at the Primetime Emmy Award nominations for 2014, and didn’t see RuPaul’s Drag Race nominated in any category, I was pissed off and disappointed. Over the years, RuPaul’s Drag Race  has developed into a great show that’s consistently funny, full of emotion, and one of the most entertaining shows on television. Critics love it, both straight and gay audiences love it, and the Primetime Emmy Awards shun the show.

Last night the Television Critics Association (TCA) handed out their awards for the 2013 - 2014 TV season in Beverly Hills, at its 30th Annual TCA Awards presentation. The award for outstanding achievement in reality programming went to RuPaul’s Drag Race!
