It’s not just the 19 gay bars and clubs that make the Mexican Pacific Coast destination of Puerto Vallarta a gay mecca, but they certainly help and keep the evenings entertaining. After spending a few days in PV for its annual Pride festivities, this year with a 15-day agenda that brought together thousands of locals and visitors for the Pride parade and to celebrate this year’s approval of same-sex marriage in the state of Jalisco (where Puerto Vallarta is located), I really got to see the power of the beach escape for the LGBT community – and how it’s been blossoming for decades.

The Best Things to Experience Onboard a Carnival Cruise

Carnival-Cruise-Deck-Sunshine

Just before the holidays, I joined a few other bloggers as part of a Men Who Blog trip to experience the Carnival Sunshine ship. We journeyed on an eight-day cruise through the southern Caribbean with stops Aruba, Bonaire, and Grand Turk with days at sea to experience all the ship had to offer. This was my first my cruise as a grown up, with my previous cruise adventure being one when I was a young teen (about a decade ago since I’m still a twenty-something). After flying into Fort Lauderdale from Westchester, going on the bus shuttle to the dock, and checking into the cruise, my adventure started.

With summer travel planning in mind, there are a few things you should always have in your wardrobe and accessories collection to be ready for the season ahead and for any last minute tropical getaways. I recently traveled to Thailand and had to pack for high 80s and 90 degree, humid weather. Knowing I’d be in the lush tropics of beach towns like Krabi and Khao Lak I packed a range of short sleeved tops, shorts, swimwear and sunnies.

Model Colby Melvin is best known for his popular work with Andrew Christian, which included video segments such as the Road Trip series and a photo session that had him drenched in paint in a collaboration with The Underwear Expert. A self proclaimed goofball, his fandom grew quickly on the web, and he’s been working on developing his own entertainment group, Colbra, with his fiancée and fellow Andrew Christian model, Brandon Brown (below). As an LGBT activist, Colby is also always sharing news and entertainment reads on his social media accounts and website, and partaking in events to raise money for gay causes.
