From our global correspondent Steve Roth who is also a co-founder of Alturi, check out a fun gay party that will also support some worthy causes. The party is co-sponsored by GAYography which is the brainchild of another of our global correspondents, Ashton Giese.

Performance at HIFA


Our Africa-born, Kenya-based correspondent Dion Van Aardt returns with some cool info about a week-long arts festival in Zimbabwe:

When you say ‘Zimbabwe’ negative images spring to mind, not to mention 91 year old President Robert Mugabe who has ruled the nation for 35 years, but there is a lot more to this great country than the world would have you believe.

If you want to be part of something really cool, worthwhile and that none of your friends have already done, then you have got to go to HIFA. It’s a week-long festival of diverse artistic fun beginning April 28! Read the rest of this entry »

Run, Don’t Walk, To Tel Aviv Gay Pride

17 04 2015

israel 2Update, April 17, 2015: This post was published 2 years ago and updated today. Tel Aviv Pride week kicks off this year June 7, 2015 with the big day on Friday, June 12, 2015. For more information about activities, click here. To plan a trip, visit the website of our correspondent (and inbound tour operator specializing in Israel),

Tel Aviv has come into its own in recent year with a gay scene as large as many similar size cities in North America and, depending on your tastes, with some of the hottest guys in the world. Exhibit A is the irresistibly hot Ori Avrahami, pictured above and below, the muscular cover model for F.O.D’s 2013 Pride issue. L

We sent a writer to Pride and produced our own Tel Aviv guide. Get an all-access subscription or purchase our Tel Aviv issue for a roundup of Pride activities as well as recommendations for where to stay, eat, play/meet and more.

Additionally blessed with a terrific beach, really nice weather, great food and proximity to popular Middle East attractions from religious sites in Jerusalem and the Dead Sea to Petra and more, Tel Aviv is well worth a visit. We love it during Gay Pride when all the boys come out to play from throughout the region. Tel Aviv Gay Pride is Friday June 15 but there are events throughout the week leading up to Pride. And now another look at this hot Israeli model:

5 Things You Can’t Miss In Palm Springs, California

16 04 2015


Palm Springs’ heyday may have begun with the early movie and TV stars, but the town’s gay renaissance began in the ‘80s, when gay Angelenos started buying the mid-century modern homes in a then seedy downtown. Today, Palm Springs is a stylish and popular weekend getaway from September through May, and never more glorious than it is right now. When LA is a “chilly” 68-70° in the winter and spring, Angelenos head to sunny Palm Springs for warm swimming pool weather. It’s a popular gay destination, but it’s a relatively small city, with a population of under 50,000 residents. The few gay bars and clubs it has are often deserted midweek, even in season, and when the temperature soars in the summer, the town really slows down. Read the rest of this entry »
