Businessinsider just released its top 12 honeymoon destinations for gay couples. Puerto Vallarta was #1 destination. Here is what Ed Salvato, the editor-in-chief of gay travel magazine ManAboutWorld said about Vallarta. “Puerto Vallarta is extremely gay popular, but it may not be conducive to a honeymoon because you don’t want your new husband to get picked up at a bar the first night,” Salvato said. “Instead, couples might want to stay at a more secluded resort like the Four Seasons Punta Mita, which is right nearby.”
We could not agree more. Here is why. Puerto Vallarta has the hottest, sexiest nightlife in Mexico. The sexually charged atmosphere is too much temptation for most gay newlyweds. La Noche is one of Puerto Vallarta’s top spots. Sexxy Go Go Dancers are shaking their stuff Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 11:30pm. So certainly avoid taking your spouse to this place because there are 3 floors of fun and huge crowds where he/she could easily hide and disappear from you. DANGER! DANGER! SEXY GO GO’s AHEAD!  Endless eye candy during the late night happy hour everyday from 1am to 3am.

CC Slaughters also has sexxy go go dancers on the weekend. This is another of Vallarta’s top hot spots to avoid on your honeymoon. Dancing and socializing continues until 6 am. The weekends are not the best time to take your newlywed because he will meet hot guys and gals from all over the world, shirtless and sweaty.  Certainly too much temptation on your honeymoon.

Wet Dreams just had a sexxy jock strap contest (here is the video) and Antropology had a sex show with porn stars Martin Mazza y Frank Valencia from Spain (courtesy of GAYGDL.com).  Sorry the photos and video we took are so explicit we can not post.

We dare not mention Spartacus Spa, Puerto Vallarta’s newest and largest men’s only sauna.  Three floors of steamy fun with Sauna-Vapor-Jacuzzi-Lockers-Cabinas-Massages and more. Tuesdays lockers are on sale so avoid it at all cost unless you want to head to d-i-v-o-r-c-e court.

Puerto Vallarta has beautiful locations to bring your new partner in secret seclusion. Casa Cupula, rated one the the best gay hotels in the world, will be an excellent choice. Indulge and relax with other sophisticated LGBT travelers. Villa David, a clothing optional bed and breakfast is another beautiful property you should check out before taking your newlywed. Investigate Hacienda Escondida, Villa Savana, and Pinata PV carefully before you bring you newlywed. Pinata PV is a new Gay Vacation Rental Guest House in the romantic zone with a totally private and secluded pool. We always see the hot #skinnyboysmx hanging around wearing very little so it could really tempt your newlywed spouse.

Yes the Puerto Vallarta gay scene is just too sexy and has too much temptation for gay newlyweds. We recommend you take your spouse somewhere else where he/she will not be tempted.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike! “Silly and saucy and teary and great—just see it!” raved one Eventsreviewer about this contemporary, frolicsome mashup about three siblings as they wallow in their quirky, slightly arrested lurch into middle age. Two of the sibs live together, each sporting his and her laments, when they are visited by their five-times married, (five-times divorced) sister, a self-loving, self-doubting Hollywood diva. This is a family who puts the fun in dysfunction, and who will move you to laughter, maybe even tears, and possibly leave you just the little bit better for having met them. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike http://glynnhouse.com/events/ swirled at the center of the 2013 awards season, carrying home the Tony, NY Drama Critics, and the Drama Desk awards all for best play.  Be sure to see Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike at the Barnstormer’s Theatre July 16 – 25.

Table Manners

Table Manners! Table Manners http://glynnhouse.com/events/ was created by the legendary Alan Glynn House Evening-cAyckbourn. It’s a comedy about families – and what’s not funny about that? A country house in England would appear to be an idyllic spot for a weekend getaway.  But when three grown-up siblings and their significant others all end up under the same roof, long-time rivalries and romantic entanglements come bubbling to the surface.  Brimming with wit and rancor, Table Manners is a gem of a play from Britain’s master of comedies. Don’t miss the show – July 15 – 25 – at the Winnipesaukee Playhouse in nearby Meredith.

Hot Tuna

Glynn House Evening-cHot Tuna! http://glynnhouse.com/events/ Rock N Roll Hall of Fame alumnus, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have been performing together for the past 50 years. Originating from Jefferson Airplane, the duo formed the iconic blues-roots band Hot Tuna.  Jorma and Jack certainly could not have imagined, let alone predicted, where playing would take them. It’s been a long and fascinating road to numerous exciting destinations.  After two decades of acoustic and electric concerts and albums, the 1990s brought a new focus on acoustic music to Hot Tuna. More intimate venues with a more individual connection to the audience became increasingly frequent stops. Soon, the loud electric sound (and the semi trailer load of equipment) disappeared entirely from Hot Tuna tours. Two things have never changed: They still love to play as much as they did as kids, and there are still many, many exciting miles yet to travel on their musical odyssey.  Enjoy legendary musicians and exceptional sounds at the nearby Flying Monkey July 10.

EuroPride 2015 in Riga – a Fantastic Success!

Author: , June 28th, 2015

Riga Pride - Briand Bedford

On Saturday, the 20th June around 5.000 participants met up in the central Vermanes Park in Riga, the capital city of the Baltic State of Latvia. At 2pm the participants left the park and the parade covered 2.2 kilometers (1.4 miles) through Riga’s central streets and back to Vermanes Park. This distance is four times longer than any previous Riga Pride parades.

Riga Pride - Briand BedfordThis year many participants were worried about safety and Amnesty International urged the Latvian government to commit to protect the participants of this year’s EuroPride. It was disturbing to see the Latvian government’s evident discomfort at hosting EuroPride. Instead of welcoming this event, Latvia’s leaders preferred to turn their backs on it.

Latvia is currently holding the presidency of the European Union and should be leading by example in the fight against homophobic discrimination. Probably for this reason the police presence was very noticeable during the march on the streets of Riga. Special riot police headed the parade and barricades were erected around the Vermanes Park, where the parade started and ended. After the parade there was a park festival with stage events from singers and speeches from local as well as international LGBTI activists.

Riga Pride - Briand BedfordNot all Latvia’s political leaders turned their backs on the EuroPride. Local participants included Latvias former parliamentary secretary and now Adviser of Ministry of Foreign Affairs Viktor Makarov and his boyfriend; Karlis Streips – a famous Latvian journalist and one of the first well known personalities in Latvia to come out gay and Ilze Vinkele, a very gay-friendly member of the Lavian parliament, who spoke at the rally after the march. Sadly the Latvian foreign minister, Edgars Rinkēvičs, who become the first high-ranking politician in his country and the Baltic states to come out publicly as gay did not attend the event.

International support came from the US and Embassy as well as the German and Norwegian Ambassadors: Mrs Andrea Joana-Maria Wiktorin and Mr Jan Grevstad, who all took part in the parade through the streets of the Latvian capital.

On the streets the locals were clearly in favour of the parade. Many young people lined the route and waved the parade participants their support. Opponents to the EuroPride were not visible – an amazing change in attitudes when compared to the local Pride events in the past.

Riga Pride - Briand BedfordIn previous years Pride events in the Baltic region faced threats of violence and attempts to be banned by local authorities. In 2006, a LGBT Pride march in Riga was banned owing to what the authorities’ referred to as “security threats” against the participants and violent protesters threw eggs and human excrement at people elsewhere.

In 2007, the Pride march was allowed to go ahead, but inside an enclosed park. Outside the park, crowds of counter-demonstrators shouted abuses at the Pride marchers and threw two explosive devices which exploded in the park. In May 2009 Riga City Council initially revoked permission for the Baltic Pride march.

A successful EuroPride in Riga is of huge importance not only for Latvia but for the entire region, including the post-Soviet countries, where freedom of speech and assembly are under attack every day. The Russian LGBT propaganda law (also known as the gay propaganda law or the anti-gay law refers to a Russian federal law “for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values” was unanimously approved by the State Duma in June 2013.

Riga Pride - Briand BedfordThe situation in Latvia is similar to that in Russia. Anti-LGBT groups have spent the past year collecting signatures for a referendum that would implement a similar law to ban “gay propaganda.” The new law would limit sexual education to the traditional understanding of marriage, which is seen as the union between one man and one woman. Latest public opinion poll reveals that Latvian society remains hostile towards LGBT people and legal recognition of same-sex partnerships.

EuroPride – one of Europe’s main, annual LGBT events, inaugurated in London in 1992, was hosted this year by the city of Riga in Latvia and coincided with the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. This EuroPride marks a historic occasion as it is the first EuroPride to be held in a post-Soviet country on the EU’s Eastern border with Russia.

The Latvian capital, Riga is located only 300 km from the Russian border. The local increase in tension, resulting from the Ukraine crisis, is very evident in the Baltic States. We’re seeing a massive military build-up in the Baltic states as NATO launched one of its largest-ever military manoeuvres last June in the three Baltic states and the United States recently started deploying a 3,000 strong infantry unit in the Baltics, with over 100 armed vehicles. The NATO forces will hold a three-month exercise with the local armies in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

Riga Pride - Briand BedfordThe EuroPride 2015 in Riga was organised by the Association of LGBT and their friends MOZAIKA (mozaika.lv/en), the only LGBT organisation in Latvia and it was supported by local companies such as Air Baltic – flying from Riga to over 50 destinations worldwide. airBaltic has just introduced new routes including Berlin – Tallinn and has a fleet consists of 25 aircraft, offering nonstop flights from three Baltic capital cities – Riga, Vilnius, and Tallinn. airBaltic received the title of Airline of the Year 2009/2010 (Gold Award) from the European Regions Airline Association. (www.airbaltic.com).

The local tourism LiveRiga (www.liveriga.com) was a big supporter of the EuroPride 2015. The city of Riga was an ideal choice for this parade. A heritage of 800 years old Gothic churches, built by founders of Riga, medieval buildings in the Old Town, exquisite Art Nouveau, as well as wooden buildings make Riga a true pearl of architecture. Each century has left its marks in the architecture in the Old Town and City Centre here the cultural heritage coexists with the quick pace of modern living.

EuroPride 2016 will take place next summer in Amsterdam.
