A NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHERS

artist: Sakimi Chan


IT’S BETTER...DOWN WHERE IT IS WETTER!

he time for pool parties, foam pits and general shirtless opportunities has arrived. Many of you have taken the last two months as a chance to work on honing your beach bods to perfection while others have been happy to accept the bodies that the good lord and Papa John’s Pizza has given you. To both extremes of men and everyone that fall somewhere in that spectrum - THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU TO HAVE FUN THIS SUMMER! Starting with the Gay Days 2014 festivities going on all over the amazing city of Orlando! For those of you that have lived under a rock or are a newbie to the High Holy Days of Gay, this is the time during the first days of summer that a silent beacon goes out at such high frequency that only Gay people (and squirrel's can hear it) luring them to Central Florida to congregate for the annual shenanigans. We have been enjoying these parties and gatherings for many years now and have put together a small list of events that you definitely do not want to miss if you are attending Gay Days for the first time. We hope that you enjoy this MUST DO list and tell us about a couple of your very own special experiences during this years events. Most of all, remember to have fun, meet as many new friends as you can and BE SAFE! • SATURDAY NOON DEMONSTRATION AT THE MAGIC KINGDOM: This event was the beginning of it all. If it is your first time attending Gay Days - YOU MUST GO! Everyone is asked to wear the traditional red t-shirt to signify that you are part of the GLBT community. The sea of red t-shirts then gather in front of Cinderella's Castle to show the world our unity as we come together for this peaceful demonstration which follows the noon parade at Disney. It is an experience that has to be LIVED at least once. Then you can stand for two hours and wait to ride Space Mountain or Haunted Mansion attractions. (NOTE: This is the only day of the year where the lines are as FUN to be as the actual rides). • OFFICIAL POOL PARTIES AT THE HOST HOTEL: There will be several pool parties going on simultaneously throughout the city. If you are not fortunate enough to be invited to one hosted by a local, then there are always the ones that are going on at the host hotel. We highly recommend the several that will be presided over by our very good friend DJ Chi Chi LaRue! Also, once you are done at the S&M (stand and model) pool make sure to

T

work your way over to the designated Bear Pool where there will most definitely be a Bear Soup jacuzzi and all-accepting loving people having a great time while bobbing in the water with libation's in hand (in plastic tumblers of course). •Typhoon Lagoon: This party is EPIC and it never disappoints. Disney designed watersides under the stars, wave pools that’ll knock the skimpy Speedos right off you and simply THOUSANDS of the hottest men from around the world showing off their their God-given assets! How can it go wrong? Shuttle buses take you back and forth from the host hotel allowing you to attend, drink (yes, there are cash bars) and avoid looking for your parked car at three o'clock in the morning. This one is a a sure-thing so don't you dare miss it. • GAY DAYS BUSINESS EXPO: Everyone should definitely take a moment and attend this yearly aspect of the festivities. There is always great swag that is given. Not to mention, wonderful gay and gay friendly businesses that are there to offer you incredible deals from sexy underwear & swimsuits (in case you need fresh ones) to unique jewelry. Also, don't miss the Adult Expo for any last minute "sundries" you might have forgotten to bring or were too embarrassed to stuff in your suitcase. • TEA DANCE AT EPCOT: Do not miss this very special event at EPCOT! This is one of our very favorites. It puts the perfect punctuation to the week long fun, as it is usually the last official event. Retro Disco music is played, fans are whipped open and twirled and new friends are exchanging FB addresses. The night culminates with the most beautiful display of fireworks called Illuminations for which the GLBT attendees is escorted around the world pavilion to the applause of all those enjoying the theme parks into a V.I.P. spectator area. It will send chills up your spine and coax a tear down your cheek. We promise. Finally, DO NOT forget that the city of Orlando is not comprised of just the host hotel. There are several amazing downtown mega and neighborhood bars that have planned special events for you this weekend. Make sure that you leave a couple of evening opens to enjoy those as well! . HAPPY GAY DAYS 2014! Peter Aguas & Frank Garcia OWNERS/PUBLISHERS OF WHM


arlier this year, I decided to take a mental health day from work and stay home and catch up on all the movies that I had not seen in the last year. Due to the fact that I work, for the most part, during the late evening hours and most of my friends are nine-to-fivers, I have a hard time being able to find time for movie dates when a movie debuts in theaters. That is why I love to stay home, turn off all the lights, crawl under my covers and watch a quintuple feature of the films that I have not yet seen to date (and probably couldn’t convince anyone to watch with me). Now, I’m normally not the sappy type that enjoys chick-flicks, but I have been known to enjoy a musical or two. Especially, if said musical is produced by Pixar/Disney. Let’s face it, they are the last refuge for the movie musical in this day and age and I don’t mind saying that I’m a FAN. Ever since I heard the song Let It Go sung by Edina Menzel (or how John Travolta knows her Adele Dazeem - sorry couldn’t help myself), I knew that I had to watch this film. I made sure that I made the environment perfect for the screening by turning down the air conditioning into the low 60s and started to enjoy this FROZEN spectacle of a movie. I have to say that it was love at first viewing and outside of Cinderella (Tranny Tales Trivia - I choose Danielle as my name when transitioning because it is the REAL name of Cinderella in the Grimm’s Fairytales version), Elsa will probably remain one of the characters with which I truly identify with. All my life, like Elsa, I felt like I had to hide a secret from not only the rest of the world, almost worse, from my closest friends and family. Being made to feel like you can’t show your true self and talents to those closest to you does something to your heart that is hard to explain. This movie, I believe illustrates it beautifully with the metaphor of Elsa’s heart growing colder and more distant because of her special gifts. It is not until our protagonist learns that the only way to experience true happiness in life is to LET GO and BE YOURSELF that she finds the true meaning of understanding and love. In the end, it is the selfless act of a love one (her sister in the movie) that teaches Elsa that she should have never hidden her true self in the first place. As LGBT people this movie has much to teach us. I hope that young children questioning their place in the world are helped along by viewing this film. With luck, they won’t have to go through some of the hardships that hardwe’ve experience by learningby ships that we’ve experience these lessons on. early on. learning theseearly lessons One more thing, of all the Disney heroines she’s also my favorite now because she is NOT a princess! Honey, don’t get it twisted Miss Elsa is a QUEEN!

tart sucking those lemon wedges, slipping on those Speedos and greasing up that Grindr, GAY DAYS 2014 is upon us. That yearly tribal rite where lust is on the loose, lube is measured by the liter, Bears are at the Boston Lobster Feast (Buffet) on I-Drive (STRAIGHT GIRL TOURIST TIP – It’s not a true Boston Lobster Feast experience unless you snap a group photo by the Lobster Mobile in the parking lot!) and pride is prominently displayed on every body part! Not to mention, the official libation of the LGBT community – VODKA! It seems the newest flavor is Smirnoff’s Pineapple Coconut Sorbet Light. Doesn’t this just sound like vodka for a Twink in a silver Spandex Banana Hammock! For that hot Latin boy flavor, taste test new Absolut Cilantro. While we all enjoy a cocktail, I can’t name one of us who enjoys a hangover. It IS the silent killer of a GAY DAYS good time. (STRAIGHT GIRL most overheard conversation at GAY DAYS - “So, where’s so and so?” “They are sleeping it off.”) So, in an effort to educate and illuminate, your Straight Girl in a Gay World has done a little research and discovered a company that should be the official sponsor of every gay event from here to the 3014 Red Rocks Ball on planet Mars. Hangover Heaven! Dr. Jason Burke in Las Vegas has researched the cures for Veisalgia the clinical name for hangover. (Frankly, Veisalgia sounds like something that could be cured with a series of Penicillin shots.) He’s discovered there are various cures based on gender, ethnicity and severity of condition. It seems his team drives a tour bus to your hotel, hooks you up to an IV and VOILA, you’re ready to go again. It’s sort of like Viagra for your liver. They even sell hangover prevention packs online to take before you imbibe. Check them out at www.hangoverheaven.com. I’m going to mention it to the GAY DAYS people; this could be a more profitable partnership than Miley and TWERKING! Speaking of Miley, GAY DAYS is more than just anonymous SAFE SEX and Mickey Mouse! I consulted the ever popular DJ Scott Robert of the Parliament House Resort about the hottest mixes this summer. DJ Scott habitually has his headphones tuned in to the latest trends! Apparently, The Saturdays are the NEW Spice Girls, Little Mix is a conjoined gem of X-Factor fame and Betty Who will be very HOT! We’ve covered the basics – Grindr (check), lube (check), CONDOMS (check), buffet (check), Vodka (check), hangovers (check), music (check) what’s left? The chance to “swim” with 300 other boys in the hotel pool/foam party/gang shower/bathhouse or three way Dom Perignon downpour. And of course for the purists the chance to invade Disney World in a sea of red shirts and maybe get a blow job on Splash Mountain! Remember the official Straight Girl in a Gay World’s GayDays motto – “If you’re not getting laid, you’re not doing it right!” HAPPY GAY DAYS TO ALL!

PINOCCHIO PINOCCHIO

inocchio for as long as he could remember, wanted to be a REAL BOY. When his Daddy Geppetto first decided to carve him out of scrap wood in his toy shop, he put so much love and longing into having a beautiful son that his wishes were heard by the great and good Blue Fairy. “One day I’m going to leave this toy shoppe and see the world for myself. I’m sure that it’ll be very fun and gay,“ exclaimed Pinocchio. Just at that moment the Blue Fairy appeared and granted him his wish. But, she told him that he only had one night of FUN in the real world and could not lie or get into trouble or he would never become a REAL BOY. Pinocchio agreed whole-heartedly and took his best friend Jiminy Cricket with him to make sure he stayed out of trouble. Pinocchio fist ventured to Pleasure Island. There he met, boys of all types and sizes. They were all eating candy and tasty drinks that made Pinocchio forget about his Daddy and all the things the Blue Fairy had warned him about. He was there so long, he lost all track of time. Finally, he remembered the Blue Fairy’s warning and decided to heed Jiminy’s advice and headed home. Once there, the Blue Fairy could smell the lingering cocktails he had enjoyed on Pleasure Island and asked,”Pinocchio is there something that you want to tell me before I grant you your final wish to become a REAL BOY?” Pinocchio looked her straight in the eyes,”Nope. I’ve been a VERY good boy.” What the Fairy didn’t tell Pinocchio is that she enchanted him before leaving the toy shop and watched as his nose started to grow with each lie. She looked at him and Jiminy and said,”What the hell, you only live once kid.” The morale of this story is no matter how sweet and honest they look on the outside ALL BOYS LIE WHEN THEY’VE GOT WOOD. Happy Gay Days!
