Did you consider not coming back to All Stars?

There was no choice. I know there are a lot of deciding factors for some queens but I had to do it.

How did you prepare differently for all stars than you did the first time on the show?

In season 5, I was just trying to go there and survive. This time I really wanted to display a huge range of silhouettes and I wanted to tell stories with my looks. All of the All Stars have been doing drag so much since our seasons that we were able to hone our craft. This is the best stage to do drag on.

If you couldn't win, who would you have wanted to and why?

I wouldn't want anyone else to win….maybe Trixie. (Authors note: when I reminded Alaska that Trixie wasn't on All Stars, she responded with: “Exactly”).

How hard was it to keep the secret?

Well I found out not that much before you found out. The hard part was not telling anyone that I made the top. I got really good at lying.

What's the first thing you are going to do with the $100,000? I want to buy a 100,000 slices of pizza.

The album will also be released digitally as well as in 1-LP vinyl format, which will feature the remastered original album and original album artwork. In the liner notes that accompany this new collection, Midler recalls the origin of her nickname: "I began being called The Divine Miss M around 1969, when I made my first appearance at the Continental Baths, a gay bath house located in the basement of the Ansonia Hotel, at Broadway and 74th Street in New York. My best friend, Bill Hennessy, a hairdresser I met on Fiddler on the Roof, called me that for years.

It was my first night at the Baths, and before I went on, the owner, Steven Ostrow, stuck his head into the dressing room and asked how I wanted to be introduced. I said, 'Just tell them I'm divine!' And that's how it started." Co-produced by Barry Manilow, The Divine Miss M was released in November 1972, reached the Top 10 on the album chart, and was later certified platinum by the RIAA. The

Renewed For 2nd Season


ogo announced it has greenlit a second season for “Finding Prince Charming,” their new hit reality dating competition series that premiered in September. The announcement comes just two weeks after one of the highest rated episodes to date which drew a 22% increase in overall viewers from its season average and up 9% above the week prior. Season to date and across all platforms, “Finding Prince Charming” has reached 3.4 million plus viewers. The success of “Finding Prince Charming” and “RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars” has also led Logo to its highest rated Thursday night in network history. The first-of-its-kind journey to find love is hosted by Lance Bass and features interior designer, Robert Sepulveda Jr. in the first season as the sought-after prince charming who is searching for the man of his dreams. Sepulveda's 13 charming suitors, all housed together, are competing to stand out from the crowd and capture a moment of intimate connection, romance and, perhaps, true love. One by one, the suitors are eliminated until Prince Charming chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his feet and win his heart. The current season will come to a dramatic conclusion on Thursday, November 3rd at 9pm EST when Robert and the remaining suitors head to a romantic destination where he is faced with his toughest decision yet. On

Thursday, November 10th at 9pm, Lance Bass will welcome back Prince Charming and the 13 suitors that competed for his heart in a reunion special filled with drama, fun, heartbreak and never-before-seen-footage. “'Finding Prince Charming' is unlike anything that's currently on television and fans can't seem to get enough of the reality series,” said Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming for Logo. The show is a winning mix of drama and romance topped with humor and we are looking forward to leveling up next season.” Casting has begun on the new season of “Finding Prince Charming” and viewers have the chance to influence the new cast by giving one lucky suitor the opportunity to fall head over heels for a brand new prince through an online submission and voting process. Beginning Thursday, November 3rd through Wednesday, November 16th, potential suitors can submit a photo or video via hashtag through Instagram or Twitter showing the public why they should have a chance at love on the next season of Logo's dating competition series. On Thursday, November 17th, fans will vote from the top potential suitors and the winner will vie for Prince Charming's heart. For more i n f o r m a t i o n , h e a d t o :

Each year, along with the help of Equality Forum and, Hotspots celebrates LGBT History Month by honoring members of the community who are advancing our rights, fighting for visibility, and who help move us forward towards a life where everyone feels free to live life as who they really are. This week, we honor Tammy Smith, the first out lesbian General in the U.S. Army and David Bowie, one of the most famous musicians of the 20th century.

Tammy Smith Born 1963

ammy Smith is the first out lesbian general in the U.S. Army. She was named a brigadier general in 2012 and formally promoted during a ceremony at the Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. She became the commanding general of the 98th Training Division. Born in Oakland, Oregon, Smith began her military career when she received a fouryear Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship. She graduated from the University of Oregon in 1986 and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Quartermaster Corps. During her 30-year military career, Smith has served as a platoon leader in Panama, a logistic support detachment commander in Costa Rica and a company commander in South Carolina. She was stationed in Afghanistan, where she was chief of Army Reserve affairs during Operation Enduring Freedom. Smith holds a Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership from the University of Phoenix and received an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Lincoln University. She has been decorated

with numerous medals and awards and is in the ROTC’s Hall of Fame. Smith married Tracey Hepner in 2012. The ceremony, held at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, was officiated by a military chaplain just two years after same-sex marriage was legalized in the nation’s capital. “For me it’s really been transitional,” Smith said in an interview, “to go from being 100 percent in the closet to being globally gay.” She continued, “She [Tracey] has been so wonderful in helping me cut loose the shackles of those 26 years in the military, of having to hide a part of myself. I don’t live a double life anymore.” Hepner founded the Military Partners and Families Coalition, a national military advocacy organization that provides support, education and resources for LGBT military members and their families. Smith has become active in LGBT events and advocacy and has been honored by many LGBT organizations and publications. She served as grand marshal of the 2013 Gay Pride Parade in Washington.

David Bowie

January 8, 1947- January 10, 2016 orn David Robert Jones in London, David Bowie was a singer, songwriter, actor and record producer. He is among the best-selling recording artists in the world. Bowie first splashed onto the music charts in 1969 with “Space Oddity.” The song became one of his best known and among three of his recordings to be included in The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll. Bowie went on to experiment with a variety of musical styles that came to define him as an innovator. With his first album, “The Man Who Sold the World,” Bowie helped usher in the era of glam rock, a style known for its androgynous-looking performers, make-up and flamboyant costumes. Bowie followed his debut with a string of musical successes, notably “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.” The 1972 concept album featured his gender-bending alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust, an alien rock star. The same year, in an interview with Melody Maker magazine, Bowie came out as gay. He later told Playboy he was bisexual. In 1976 Bowie starred in “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” the first of his many film roles. He experimented with highly theatrical live shows and narrated “Peter and the Wolf”

with the Philadelphia Orchestra—the first of his many children’s projects. He made his Broadway debut in “The Elephant Man.” In addition to music, film and theater, Bowie was also an accomplished artist whose work was shown at international galleries. Bowie produced important albums for Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Mott the Hoople, and collaborated with artists such as John Lennon, the band Queen, and Mick Jagger, with whom he had been romantically linked. In 1993 he told Rolling Stone magazine that declaring his bisexuality was “the biggest mistake” he ever made. He would later say he had “no problem with people knowing I was bisexual. But I had no inclination to hold any banners nor be a representative of any group of people.” In 1996 Bowie was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and became the first musician to release a song for download. His 30th and final studio album, “Blackstar,” was released just two days before he died of cancer. Bowie was married twice to women, the second time to the model Iman (his widow). He was the father of a son and a daughter.


By L.A. Diaz Senior Director The HEAT Group Business Communications

or over 16 years, I've walked the hallowed hallways of AmericanAirlines Arena in a cloud of grateful bliss. It's not because of the three Miami HEAT championship rings I've earned during my tenure (although bling is clearly a huge plus); it's not because of the funny, creative and gifted people with whom I work (although they absolutely make the job festive as hell); nor is it because of our unique culture, which is hard to describe, but includes everything from 3:00 p.m. musical jamming sessions in the center of our offices to a “Best Hair Day Award” bestowed quarterly upon the man or woman with the sexiest tresses. It's because I'm an openly lesbian woman working for a men's professional basketball team—and no one cares. And when I say no one cares, I mean being an out lesbian in my workplace is a non-issue in all the ways that don't matter and a valuable asset in all the ways that do. I'm exceedingly lucky, spoiled even. There are far more important things for the franchise to worry about like what to do in the face of the worst mass shooting in United States history. One of our own, an Arena staffer, was among the survivors of the Pulse massacre. That fact made this tragedy personal. For me. For us.

And we of the HEAT family brand, who prize compassion and celebrate diversity, decided to act. We wrote a check to help our employee recover. We sent the team to Orlando

to visit survivors, doctors, nurses, police and first responders. We began planning a free dance party for the LGBTQ community, friends of the LGBTQ community and anyone who believes success is the best revenge. It was my colleague, a straight, happily married, father of two, who named our dance party “HEAT Loud and Proud,” not only as an affirmation of the cause, but because that's how

we do: noise and nerve; buzz and bravado. We're the Miami 'effing HEAT and we don't back down. This is nothing new, in case you were wondering. We've steadily courted the LGBTQ community from as far back as the year 2000, when I first joined the HEAT. In those days, we still owned the WNBA's Miami SOL. My heart swelled with sheer joy to see hundreds of LGBTQ fans and families—many of them my friends and acquaintances—at the Arena enjoying themselves in a supportive environment. They embraced us and we embraced them. In the intervening years, the HEAT and the AmericanAirlines Arena have worked behind the scenes to lend support and resources, to offer expertise and insight and most recently, to champion legislative efforts that seek to protect the LGBTQ community. In other words, we've got your back. Now, it's your turn, y'all. Spend the night with us at AmericanAirlines Arena on October 22nd for HEAT Loud and Proud, an evening of bites and blends, music and fun. There is strength in numbers, so the more, the merrier. Plus, you don't have to be a sports fan to huddle behind this cause. Just bring your swagger—and a sincere desire to dance your ass off.

HEAT Loud and Proud benefitting Pridelines Saturday, October 22 • 8pm – 2am XFINITY East Plaza @ AmericanAirlines Arena 601 Biscayne Boulevard // Miami, FL 33132 Everyone 18 and older welcome (must have valid ID) Must RSVP: Special Appearances: HEAT Players, HEAT Dancers, Burnie, Larry O'Brien Championship Trophies, NBA Cares Ambassador and openly gay former NBA player, Jason Collins Emcee: Roxanne Vargas

DJ Lineup: Tracy Young, Citizen Jane R Silva, AJ Reddy, Alyson Calagna, Irie




iños Lindos or Beautiful Boys by Fernando Azpurua arrives in Miami for its debut under the direction of César Sierra. The play features the acting of Willy Martin, Gianluca Mitranoand Luis Mayer. It will open on October 22 and will play every Saturday at 10:30 pm. Each week, the play, along with the sounds of DJ Naim Zarzour will take over the Catarsis Room at the Trail Theatre (3715 SW 8th St, Miami), making this a true theatrical party event. The ghost of a stormy relationship returns to life for David, ending the apparent stability he thought he had in life. A gay love story is at the heart of this work, which also touches on themes that interest youngsters, and older people alike. They include s e l f- a c c e p tance, prejudice, the complications of living in an unsure society, low levels of education, worry about economic success, and many others. This show definitely has something for everyone. Niños Lindos will immerse spectators

in an atmosphere of constant confrontation with themselves, with their surroundings. Brining in universal themes like selflove, bravery, and being stereotypically ¨straight¨ and everything else that can be found in a tightly packed city are intermingled on stage for all to see. This is not a stereotypical gay play, even though it´s characters do fit the mold of how many gay men are seen or see themselves. Niños Lindos is a play about a complicated love story, marked by a ba n d o n m e n t and the tragic impossibility of being with the one that you love, and the limits that people´s obsessions. The Trail Theatre opened in 2016 and produces multiple productions that are presented in Spanish. Located in the heart of Miami´s Little Havana on Calle Ocho, this small theatre has big dreams and works hard to bring shows that are relevant to what is going on in the world around us, especially works that showcase issues effecting the LGBT Hispanic community.

The Gayest Halloween Costumes of 2016

And How to Get Them Gutter Spice

Social media can make you an overnight celebrity – even if the term is used very liberally in this respect – and nobody knows that better than Instagrammer and wannabe backup Britney dancer “Gutter Spice,” who treated millions of video viewers to his semi-private swerve sesh before playing coy when an unsuspecting gym-goer walked in on him. To get the look this Oct. 31, peep the dude’s ’gram. You’ll find a wealth of (mostly shirtless) ideas and more booty than a desert island.

ily make this a couples’ costume, too, by asking a friend to transform into vile homosexual Milo Yiannopoulos as your devil-horned sidekick.

Gender-Neutral Bathroom Sign

Gender-neutral bathrooms became one the most controversial talking points of the year thanks to an influx of transgend e r- r i g h t s bills around the country, and the rhetoric (along with the heads of, like, half the United States) exploded when major retailers, including Target, decided to install unisex lavatories, despite calls from the alt-right for a boycott. If you felt left out from all this inclusiveness, now’s your chance to raise a few brows and, in all likelihood, draw the ire of a couple backwoods hillbillies with the wearable unisex bathroom-sign costume from

‘Roasted’ Ann Coulter

Real-life supervillain Ann Coulter got the verbal beating of a lifetime at Comedy Central’s Roast of Rob Lowe earlier this year – she was referred to as “a repugnant, hateful, hatchet-faced bitch” at one point, and nobody disagreed – which makes this figurative concept ripe for your own creativity. You can eas-

Zorn, Defender of Zephyria

One look at Zorn, animated star of FOX’s live-action Son of Zorn, and you’ll recognize from where his creators’ inspiration came. He looks a lot like He-Man, Master of the Universe, right down to the furry loincloth, and it’s relatively easy to DIY this costume. Hot glue brown faux fur that you can find at a local craft or fabric store to a pair of briefs and attach it to a wide

belt with a homemade letter Z “buckle” in the center. Add a shoulder-length red wig, gold wrist cuffs and a sword, and you’re all set to conquer the tribes of Agon – and maybe a stragler from the go-go bar.


You could go full-on fiercebitch Beyoncé this Halloween – in all her fur and fringe glory – but you’ll get more guesswork out of a straightforward approach to her Twitter-tizzying album, Lemonade, with a few nod-and-wink surprises mixed in. There are all manner of creative options on Pinterest to personify the tart-but-sweet summer refresher, after which Queen Bey titled her magnum opus, from glam to cas’. Grab a Louisville Slugger and throw a bottle of hot sauce in your bag (swag), and your own real-life Becky with the good hair won’t know what hit her.

Stranger Things’ Ill-fated Barb

Everybody’s favorite forgotten dead girl (on Netflix anyway), Stranger Things’ Barb rises from the shadows of the Upside Down just in time to make an appearance at your bestie’s costume party – and you’re in luck. News and entertainment outlets – from to Glamour to Bustle – have provided their take on how this quintessential ’80s wallflower should be recreated, complete with vintage pink eyeglasses, a front-buttoned denim skirt from Forever 21, and a cross-body handbag that you can snatch at Target.

Eggplant or Peach Emoji

Leave it to the gays to take something as innocent as the unassuming eggplant and peach emojis and defile them into expressions of lust and pornography. Because, why not? Pick your preference this All Hallows Eve – are you a size queen or an a$$

Bare-Chested Putin on a Horse (of a Different Color) man? – and show your friends just how fruity you are. Resources like eBay, Amazon and will reveal several quality results, ranging from about $35 u p to $500.

There are plenty of photographs of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on the

interwebs, but perhaps none more famous than the iron-fisted leader’s shirtless horseback gallop through the Siberian countryside. Immediately, and quite fairly, memes sprang forth – many of which suggested a Brokeback Mountain sitch featuring Putin compadre Donald Trump as his riding companion. Recreate these Photo shopped gems as a couples’ costume with a Putin mask available on Amazon plus a million and one options for Trump get-ups in Halloween stores everywhere, completed by a unicorn rideon costume from for gay-thenticity.

Gay Frog

Blubbering radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is certain he’s identified the real threat to American democracy: According to the radical-conservative blowhard in a video posted this past summer, somebody somewhere is dumping chemicals in the water to turn frogs – wait for it – gay! That’s right – amphibians everywhere

are getting their queer Kermit on just to spite family values and church spaghetti dinners. You can cop frog costumes just about anywhere, though eBay perhaps has the widest selection, then sass it up like only your gay ass knows how.

Logo’s ‘Prince Charming’

No, we’re not talking about Snow White’s knight in shining armor here. Rather, Logo’s idea of “royalty,” Robert Sepùlveda Jr., the former sex worker-turned-dating show contestant on Logo’s Finding Prince Charming – our community’s limp-wristed version of The Bachelor (as if that wasn’t already wispy enough). Of course, we pass no judgment on fame-seekers and reality-TV egomaniacs, so we’ll leave that job to you in your characterization of the queen this Halloween. Ah, the irony.

Inside & Out


By Billy Masters

//Kylie Minogue//


e can say 'I Do' when you can too!" --Kylie Minogue and fiancĂŠ Joshua Sasse vow to not get married until gays in Australia also have the right. While I appreciate the sentiment, the last highprofile couple who said that was Brad and Angelina - and we all know how that turned out! Can we talk a bit about the second Trump/Clinton debate that began without an opening handshake? How could you blame Hillary? She was probably worried Donald would reach for her pu$$y. Yes, that's where the presidential race has gone. And it's all because of Nancy O'Dell! If an "Entertainment Tonight" anchor was going to bring down a presidency, I would have thought it would have been Mary Hart or John Tesh! Comments Trump made to Billy Bush on a hot mike way back in 2005 somehow went public. Regarding my dear O'Dell, he said, "I did try and f$#k her. She was married. I moved on her very heavily...I moved on her like a b&%$h, but I couldn't get there and she was married. And all of a sudden I see her and she's got the big, phony tits. She's totally changed her look." All the while, Billy Bush is giggling like a

//Mike Yenni// schoolgirl - he's no longer employed by NBC... But a different Billy is laughing now. Because the time Trump saw a transformed O'Dell was at the 2004 Emmy Awards. And who was with Nancy that night? Your humble scribe, that's who. And the photos are on Getting back to that incriminating audio (made shortly after the Emmys), Trump sees actress Arianne Zucker and says to Bush, "Whoa! Whoa! I've got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her." If nothing else, this brought attention to Tic Tacs, a mint I think is as relevant as Certs with Retsyn - whatever the hell that is! Tic Tacs issued a statement: "Tic Tac represents all women. We find the recent statements and behavior completely inappropriate and unacceptable". As if that wasn't bad enough, Trump followed up his Tic Tac comment with this: "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]. I just start kissing them, it's like a magnet. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Whatever you want. Grab them by the pu$$y. You can do anything". It sounds like Miss Universe got off easily. In fact, it sounds like Trump gets off easily, but that's another story! But that's not the most shocking story of the week from a Republican. That honor must go to Mike Yenni, a lieutenant with the US Navy

Reserves and Jefferson Parish President. Last week, it was revealed that the conservative Louisianan had been sexting a 17-year-old boy. Two years ago, when Yenni was mayor of the city of Kenner, he met the boy at a Catholic high school graduation lunch. At least Trump waits till they're out of their teens! Somehow, the two exchanged phone numbers - as I suppose Catholic high school boys often do with 40-year-old politicians. Yenni then tracked the boy down to his place of employment - a mall food court! The two spent some private time making out in the mall bathroom, where Yenni presented the boy with some designer underwear. Yenni then sent a text asking if the boy had worn the underwear - and asked to see a photo of him modeling them! Eventually, Yenni proposes a sexual encounter. Then he suggests a threeway with an older boy. The now-19-year-old boy claims that they never had sex. Even if they did, it would not have been illegal since the age of consent is 17 in Louisiana. The boy told Yenni when they started texting that he was 17. Yenni's response? "I know the laws." Reports now claim that Yenni sexted with at least eight males on parish-funded phones. Under pressure from his constituents, he is encouraging a full investigation and is refusing to step down...for now. John Stamos recently made his debut on "Scream Queens". He grabbed our attention with a slo-mo shower scene in the first episode. The following week, he was once again in the shower, but this time totally nude

//Glen Powell//

with mega-hot Glen Powell. "I felt used and I loved it," says Stamos. You'll love it too, when you see it on Pietro Boselli, who is known online as the world's hottest math teacher, recently took part in a photo shoot where he wasn't wearing a stitch of clothing. The pictorial (called "Ladies & Gents N °57") also featured some chick named Ymre Stiekema. But you'll definitely want to get to the bottom of Boselli on This leads perfectly into our "Ask Billy" question. Terry in Rhode Island asks, "I heard the paparazzi got shots of Tom Brady sunbathing in the nude. True? Do you have the photos?� True and yes. I hasten to add that Tom attempted to employ a well-positioned towel. But it wasn't that well-positioned, as we found a photo that captures what we're calling a d!#k-slip! There's definitely nothing deflated about his assets, which you can see on When our winning hand features three a$$es, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Of course, you may need to use both hands when you're checking out - the site that always delivers at least five studs...and sometimes an ace in the hole! If you have a question for me, send it along and I promise to get back to you before Trump takes down another Bush. Until next time, remember, one man's filth is another man's bible.

SAVE’s 22nd Annual HalloweenBall Friday October 28

Some of the spookiest and sexiest ghouls and ghosts in all of South Florida meet on the dancefloor to benefit LGBTQ equality at Magic City Casino (450 NW 37th Avenue, Miami) on Friday, October 28, at 9PM for “SAVE Halloween 22: Disco de los Muertos” proudly sponsored by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Bacardi, Grey Goose, and Magic City Casino. SAVE invites guests to dance the night away with several hundred of South Florida’s scariest and sexiest undead disco divas -- with flowing cocktails by Bacardí and Grey Goose for VIPs, mesmerizing beats, and drag performances by Tiffany Fantasia, Athena Dion, Fantasia Royale, T.Lo Ivy, and Missy Meyakie LePaige. As always, one of the evening’s highlights will be the best killer Costume Contest at what is sure to be one of the best Hallow-

een parties in South Florida. This year, they are excited to offer over $1,000 in cash and prizes to the winners of the costume contest along with other prizes. For the hardest of partiers, DJ Alex Ramos, DJ Sushiman, and DJ Bill James are scheduled to serve nonstop undead disco inferno, throwbacks and electronic dance beats until 3AM! Tickets are available for sale online at discounted presale prices at until midnight on Thursday, 10/27, and will also be available for purchase for full price at the door the night of the event. Those tickets, sold at the door, will be $150 for general admission or $200 for VIP. Prices for drink tickets at cash bars will range from $4$8 and will only be available for purchase at the event. Self-parking is free. Valet parking will be available for $5

or the past 10 years, one of the largest parties in Broward County, Wicked Manors, has taken over Wilton Drive as tens of thousands of costume clad revelers celebrate with ghosts and ghouls and everything in between. This year's Wicked Manors theme is “Political Nightmare, Scandals, Secrets, and Sins� which should be an easy category and totally apropos considering the fact that we seem to be living in a political nightmare as our country races toward electing one of the least popular people to ever vie for the role. I am sure there will be more stained blue dresses than you can shake a stick at, and more than a few homages to #Pu$$ygate. Those are easy though, it's exciting to think of all the creative ways that people can turn our leader's political scandals into amazing costumes, and as you know, no one does Halloween like the gays do. Just like in years past, Wilton Drive will be closed off between 1 p.m. on Halloween and 2 a.m. the next morning. Trick or treating will take place on the Drive starting at 5pm and a kid's costume contest will take place at 7:30pm. There will also be a number of adult costume contests judged on the main stage, starting at 8:30 p.m. The hosts of this event are Misty Eyez and Miss Bryan and Kimmy B from the DJ Laz Morning show on Hits 97.3. They will be on the main stage all evening, judging costume contests and giving color commentary. On the north stage, some of South Florida's fiercest drag queens will be entertaining the crowds every 30 minutes, at the top and bottom of each hour. Proceeds raised during the community event will benefit The Pride Center, so they can continue offering their many services to the local community. During the festivities of Wicked Manors there will be six parking locations.Parking is free in the city lots until 5 pm. Paid parking begins at 5:01pm. Staff will be present at 5pm to accept payment. Customers may pre-pay at any time during the day at the Paystations, or via Parkmobile. Paystation receipts must be placed on the dash board. Staff will be present at 5pm to accept payment. Parking on the day of the event will be $10.00 Please be aware of the operating hours at the Municipal complex. Vehicles must be removed by 1am or will be subject to ticketing and towing. If you can't attend, you can donate to The Pride Center directly by going to Hotspots Media Group is proud to be one of the local media sponsors of this event. For more information, visit

To You Health

Ian Malloney ByBy Name Here! By Mike Halterman

Don´t Let Halloween Trick You Into Eating Too Many Treats Dentist´s weigh in on candy´s effect on your teeth Quick question- what is your favorite Halloween candy? Chances are you didn’t have to think about your answer very long. No matter if you celebrate Halloween with kids or not, you are likely to over indulge in candy in the next couple weeks. According to Statistic Brain ( the average American spends $27.05 for Halloween candy, bringing the grand total for Halloween candy spending in the U.S. JUST FOR

HALLOWEEN to $2,330,000,000. That’s two BILLION dollars on sweet stuff, a staggering number. We thought we would ask local dentists about how all that sugar effects our teeth. Should we worry? Brush a few extra times? Avoid candy all together? Michael P. Constabile, DMD, PA is an associate with Dental Associates of Boca Raton at Wilton Manors (2404 Wilton Drive) and Max Zaslasky, DMD both let us know what you need to worry about.

Here is what we asked: Since we know everyone will be eating a lot of candy for Halloween, what should we do to combat that? What can we do to help our teeth after we eat all that candy? Dr. Michael Constabile: Who is this Candy everyone is after? He sounds like quick trick, more than a life-long treat but busy. Maybe try Grindr or Scruff instead and see who else is available and maybe not so into this molar mashing fetish.

Seriously though, the casual confectionary once and a while isn’t the end of your pearly whites, it’s when one or two succulent sweets become a more regular occurrence that it becomes a problem. Teeth don’t typically decay based on one lone day of the year and a little overindulgence. Regardless of this, the best medicine is always preventative medicine and in this case it’s a simple matter of limiting sugary food intake and then twice daily brushing with your favorite fluoride toothpaste, flossing, and Dr. Michael Constabile using a fluoride mouth wash too to help re-mineralize and bolster those bicuspids. Halloween is a fantastic holiday, just remember to exercise a little moderation, and of course, you can always contact our office for any other dental tricks and treats. Dr. Max Zaslavsky The biggest benefit you can do if you plan on eating more candy than the usual this holiday season, is to eat it with your lunch or dinner. Since you will be having an

increase in saliva, and saliva helps prevent decay, this is the best time to splurge. Also, if you can avoid stickier candies which tend to linger to the crevices of the teeth, that would be most ideal. The stickier the candy, the harder it is to remove from the enamel, and the better the chance of creating a cavity. Lastly, drink more water, preferably fluoridated. Fluoride helps prevent cavities, so if you are going to splurge this holiday season, the above mentioned should help you avoid seeing the dentist more often than you want. So guys, go out and have some fun this Halloween season, after all, it is Gay Christmas. But, make sure you take care of your teeth. Brush them, don’t eat too much candy and rinse with mouthwash like the doctor ordered. Don’t forget the importance of regular checkups with the dentist. What’s Dr. Max Zaslavsky your favorite candy to eat at Halloween? Weigh in on our social media and let us know, we would love to hear from you.

Paraguay ....................................................................................

Es el quinto país más pequeño y el cuarto menos poblado de América del Sur. Su territorio está caracterizado por dos regiones diferentes separadas por el río Paraguay.

Asunción Oficialmente conocido como La República del Paraguay, este país sudamericano se encuentra situado en la zona central del continente. Su territorio está dividido en 17 departamentos el cuales son Concepción, San Pedro, Cordillera, entre otros incluyendo un distrito capital. Su capital es la ciudad de Asunción. Hace frontera con Argentina al sureste, sur y suroeste; con Bolivia, al norte y con Brasil, al este. Es el quinto país más pequeño y el cuarto menos poblado de América del Sur. Su territorio está caracterizado por dos regiones diferentes separadas por el río Paraguay. La republica de Paraguay se independizó de España en lo que fue un proceso histórico que empezó 1811. Paraguay no reconoce los derechos iguales de la comunidad LGBT ni hay mucho apoyo en el país para reconocer las bodas de nuestra comunidad. Lo que hace falta el país en igualdad, lo compensa en belleza. En este extraordinario país sur Americano cada departamento cuenta con destinos muy particulares y asombrosos para conocer. A continuación, te hablare sobre los cinco lugares

Palacio de los López más distinguidos de este bello y colorido país. El primero es el Túnel de Árboles que llama la atención por la particular elegancia y los vibrantes tonos de verde que poseen las hojas de los árboles que conforman el túnel verde sobre la Ruta VI en el distrito de Santa Rita, en Alto Paraná. El segundo lugar destacado es el Salto Cristal. Este lugar se ubica a unos 160 kilómetros de la capital, Asunción. Uno de los grandes atractivos del turismo interno, este salto y su abundante vegetación circundante invita a un descanso placentero. El salto está enclavado en el Parque Nacional Ybycuí que dista de la zona urbana solamente 28 kilómetros, sobre ruta asfaltada. Otro lugar impresionante es Las cavernas de Vallemí (Las cavernas de San Lazaro). Están ubicados a 6 KM de la ciudad de Vallemí. Estas cuevas tienen sistemas de entradas únicas y algunos sumideros alrededor de las cuevas. Están recomendados para el turismo ecológico. Las Dunas de San Cosme y Damián son montañas de arena, de más de 30 metros de altura, y son los remanentes del monte Ybycuí, ubicados en el centro mismo del lago Yacyretá, formado por las aguas del río Paraná. Es posible

Salto Cristal

Cavernas de Vallemí

llegar a ellas a bordo de una lancha dando un paseo de una hora de duración. Terminamos con el Salto del Monday: ubicado en el distrito de Presidente Franco, departamento de Alto Paraná, ocupa una superficie de nueve hectáreas. Después de la Usina de Itaipú y los complejos binacionales de las hidroeléctricas, los Saltos del Monday constituyen uno de los principales atractivos turísticos del Paraguay.

Para más información sobre Paraguay, visite el BlogdeNataliaGoldberg, Officially known as the Republic of Paraguay, this South American country is land locked in the center of the continent. Its territory is divided into 17 departments, a few of which are: Concepcion, San Pedro, Cordillera and it´s capital district which is made up of the city of Asuncion. Paraguay borders Argentina to the south and southwest; Bolivia to the North, and Brazil to the east. It is the fifth smallest th country in South America and the 4 least

Río Paraguay

populated. The country´s territory is characterized by two different regions that are separated by the Paraguay River. Paraguay gained its independence from Spain in 1811. Paraguay doesn't recognize equal rights for the LGBT community, nor is there much support for Marriage equality, only 15% of the country is in favor, while a stark 80% remain opposed to marriage for our community. What the country lacks in equality, it makes up for in beauty. In this beautiful country, each area features special and amazing destinations that you just have to see. I´ve highlighted five places that requisite for any traveler visiting this colorful country. The first place is the Tree Tunnel which draws special attention for its vibrant and elegant shades of green of the leaves of the trees that make up the tunnel. It can be found on Route VI in the district of Santa Rita in Alto Paraná. The second place I´d like to highlight is Salto Cristal Falls. This majestic waterfall is located about 160 KM from the capital city of Asuncion. One of the biggest natural

Túnel de Árboles

Las Dunas de San Cosme attractions in the country, the falls and the abundant vegetation surrounding are a great place to go and relax. Salto Cristal is located within the Ybycuí National Park. Another impressive place is the Caves of Vallemí and San Lazaro. They are located about 6 KM from the city of Vallemí. These caves have unique entrances and feature sink holes all around. These caves are definitely recommended for any ecotourists out there. The San Cosme and Damian Dunes are mountains of sand that are around 90 feet tall and are the remnants of Mount Ybycuí. They are found smack dab in the center of Lake Yacyretá which is formed by the

waters of the Paraná River. It is possible to get to this site from a boat that takes about an hour´s journey. Finally, we end up at Monday Falls, found in the district of President Franco, in the department of Alto Paraná. This natural park is made up of an area of nine hectares. After Usina de Itaipú and the multinational hydro electrical complex, the Monday Falls are one of the principal tourist destinations in the country.

Need Wood



ey Woody, I've got a pet peeve I thought you might want to tackle. It's deep-throating! It seems the majority of gay men have somewhat learned this technique but not as a continuing part of a stroke. Instead, they take the penis down their throat, and then STOP! They hold it down as long as they can hold their breath, and only then continue the motion that brings pleasure to the recipient. I wish men would consider what a good sexual technique is and what a parlor trick is. When men masturbate, do they simply grab their penis with both hands motionless? NO! They move their hands up and down continuously. It's the motion that brings pleasure, not just the contact. Tell them to stop slowing the momentum down, Woody! ---Got something caught in their throat Dear Got: You're complaining about guys who deep-throat? You probably came out of the womb complaining about the backlighting. Advice #1: Never complain when somebody can deep-throat you. Complain when they can't. Advice #2: When somebody's doing something you don't like, don't bitch-request. Say: "Wow, that feels great, but it feels better when you don't stop the motion." Grab his ears and gently show him how to swallow the sword without nicking his throat or stopping the mo'.

Your partners aren't the problem, guy--you are. You seem to think that your partners should know what you like before you tell them. You can't move a man's mouth down your shaft through telekinesis. Why are you so unwilling to tell your partners what you like? Hey, Woody! I have a strange problem. Sometimes when I cum, I cry. I'm not sad, but the tears come anyway. It doesn't happen all the time but I've run off a few promising dates because they thought I had "issues." It's not like I blubber or anything, but it's noticeable. The thing is, it'll happen even with a trick I don't ever want to see again. What can I do to stop this? ---Reaching for the cum towel & Kleenex Dear Reaching: Don't cry over spilled milk. There's nothing wrong with you. In fact, I think it's rather sweet. In addition to a physical release during climax, there's also an emotional release. There are men, for instance who convulse with laughter after they cum. Nothing strikes them funny; it's just the way their mind-body connection reacts to the release. Like my boyfriend's moods, sexual response is multiphasic. Energy builds from excitement (the first stirrings) to resolution (the last dribble). By the time you're ready to "pop," all that built-up energy gets released in different ways. For you, it's crying. For others, it is laughing. For my boyfriend, a compulsive need to brush his hair. Crying may be your body's way of saying "Thanks, I needed that." Be grateful. That kind of emotional juice doesn't come often. As for scaring off partners, just treat it lightly. If they think you're crying because you're falling for them, just say "Don't flatter yourself, I cry when I beat off."
