PUBLISHER'S CORNER WE MUST FORCEFULLY OPPOSE BIGOTRY AND HATE Just when we thought Donald J. Trump could not get any worse as president or reach a new low, he did. In a disgusting expression of his true beliefs – without reading remarks drafted by his staff from a teleprompter – Trump clearly stated what he really thought about the neo-nazi white supremacists marching with lit torches in Charlottesville. In an unequivocal display of tolerance for bigotry and hate, the president made the most absurd and repulsive statements of his presidency – rather than doing what he should have done and condemn in no uncertain terms the actions and statements by neo-nazi white supremacists and the murderous terrorist attack with a car by one of their own. The statements and actions by the president in the lobby Trump Tower can only signal the beginning of the end of his presidency. This man has managed to alienate everyone a president needs to work with to do his job. Through his insults and unprovoked attacks of the intelligence community, the press, former aides, senior senators on both sides of the aisle, and on and on, Trump has no allies or support left to govern. Instead, his actions have paved the way for countless people to have it out for him and look for payback in any way they can. Trump and his family stand no chance from the results of the investigation by former FBI director Robert Mueller. There is a legion of people from all walks of life lining up to provide any and all evidence director Mueller could possibly find against Trump, his family and his associates. Serious times for serious contemplation doesn't mean our enjoyment of life should come to an end. Merging fashion and function, a pair of design houses are bringing menswear looks that have garnered a following from the LGBTQ community. Parke & Ronen and Addicted each offer a distinct look and feel, yet both also offer practicality and, well, pretty in the same package. In this week's cover story, Wire Magazine has a look at the approach and themes of the two design houses and offers a look at some of the hot looks – on even hotter models. We hope you enjoy learning more about these well crafted labels. Also in this issue of Wire Magazine, film writer Alyn Darnay has had an early look at The Hitman's Bodyguard and walked away unusually impressed. The hilarious duo of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson chew up so much of the scenery around them in such a delightful – if oft-bawdy – fashion that one might not even notice the plot. In fact, plot? Who cares when director Patrick Hughes (Expendables 3) uses his deft touch with action sequences to load this film with every conceivable chase stunt or violent action you could ever think of and then some. It's pure escapism – assuming one wants to escape from the usual action-driven, humorless summer fare. Finally, if the news have you feeling in need of a break, in Destinations this week, Wire Magazine Editor Michael W. Sasser dishes on why Montréal might offer just the right kind of getaway. It's French, it's gay-friendly, and it isn't all that far away.

VIVE LA (ALMOST) FRANCE

on't judge French Canadians by the occasional confused driver in the winter in South Florida or by the periodic arguments over tipping you might overhear (only half in English) at restaurants during the prime Early Bird hours. After all, they know better than us what a sweet deal they have, spending the icy Canadian winters here in paradise and spending our ungodly hot summers back in Montréal, which is kind of like Paris, but closer to home and at least slightly less expensive.

Americans might have a hard time wrapping their heads around the two distinct cultures in Canada, but the important thing for LGBTQ travelers to remember is that both the English and French Canadians are – and have long been – welcoming of gays and lesbians. Montréal's gay history dates back almost 150 years to a shop selling fruit and pastries – and which was also a well-known gathering place for gay men.

Today, Montréal openly markets its distinct Gay Village, or "Le Village Gai" to the city's predominantly francophone population. Here is the highest concentration of gay-oriented establishments, although one would be challenged to find a section of Canada's second-largest city where there wasn't some kind of appeal... official or not. In the "Village," scores of bars, clubs, shops and restaurants catering to the LGBTQ community have been thriving for decades stretch of Saint Catherine Street (or Rue Sainte-Catherine) between Berri and Papineau Streets.

To only visit Montréal for its bars and clubs is to miss the essence of the community and of the liberation enjoyed by gays and lesbians. Gay-oriented festivals abound. During the Aires Libres art event from May to September, a 12-block stretch of Saint Catherine between Saint Hubert and Papineau is closed to traffic and transformed into a pedestrian-only zone – several hundred thousand little pink balls strung over the streets is a clue to the theme. There is also the annual Black and Blue Festival in October and one of the great Pride events anywhere on the world.

Hot spots can change rapidly, so keep an eye on local nightlife media. But some of the major don't-miss venues include Le Stud for the leather crowd, Circus and Stereo – both of which attract mixed crowds but are also world-class music venues, Cabaret Mado, Sky and others.

Fine accommodations can be found citywide, with Hôtel Le Cantlie Suites and Hôtel de l'ITHQ among the preferred. Soaking up ubiquitous French culture in a longtime LGBTQ-friendly environment not far from home might be a lot to enjoy, but try not to pilot your rental car on those friendly streets in slow motion with your turn signal constantly on. Now that's just rude. Wire Magazine Editor Michael W. Sasser has written for hundreds of travel publications and published numerous travel guides.

FASHION & STYLE:

PARKE & RONEN AND ADDICTED By Rafa Carvajal & Michael W. Sasser

here is nothing sexier than a gorgeous gay man dressed in beautiful, stylish fashion wares. At Wire Magazine, we often showcase some of the sexiest fashion collections from the best designers in the world in our special fashion issues, so our readers can peruse through these fashionably elegant and sophisticated choices and the stunning runway models sporting them. As part of our continued efforts to bring you the latest fashions and styles, we have decided to introduce a new Fashion & Style column that will showcase just that. We inaugurate this new content column by bringing you a Fashion & Style cover story this week with some very hot fashions and seductive models by Parke & Ronen and Addicted. Enjoy!

The expression of natural beauty, and of peace, define the essence of legendary musician John Denver, and also inspire the Parke & Ronen Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The collection draws inspiration from the lyrics of John Denver's song, "Rocky Mountain High," with an emphasis on the lyrics "serenity of a clear blue mountain lake." Nostalgic to the times of our youth when John Denver was ushering in pop-awareness of the earth, nature and unique beauty of Rocky Mountain summer's led Parke & Ronen to create a collection inspired by the idea of Americana as seen through rose colored lenses. For sportswear, fabrics are rich in natural worn patinas, washed linens, and printed chambray denims, mixed with lambskin suede and whisper weight cotton voiles. Knit sportswear has been developed to complement their swim and resort wear even further. They've created over 30 exclusive prints for their swim line, drawing direct inspiration to all aspects of a Rocky Mountain summer ranging from flyfishing, eagle feathers, fields of wildflowers, and a sophisticated cannabis print. Pops of bright and playful retro hues of poppy, tangerine, and marigold are set against a backdrop of muted tones of sand, khaki, sage, and tan. 14 WIREMAG.COM #34 2017

ADDICTED

Addicted has also diversified. This sexy Spanish brand has been expanding its collection beyond its beautiful swimwear. Every year new underwear, sportswear and swimwear ranges are presented. Nowadays, Addicted is a model brand within men's fashion, and more specifically, within the gay market – a brand that comes to mind when thinking about desirable gay men's fashion and gorgeous male models. Youthful but classy, practical but comfortable, the distinct, livable look and feel of Addicted reflects modern style and sensibilities.

In less than a decade, Addicted has become a preferred brand for men's swimwear, particularly among gay men. Founded in 2009 in Barcelona, and with its growth driven in part by the success of the premier brand, the independentlabeled ES Collection, the brand has gone worldwide.
