Operation #MostMemorableYear Ever Continues

My 2014 resolution is to make this the most memorable year ever. Now that the first 3 months of the year are over, its time to look back at the first quarter of 2014 and see how my resolution is going.

Check out my cool travel flipagram for the year to date: http://flipagram.com/f/BoU5sSPmG2

I have to say it is going amazingly. So far I have traveled to Mammoth Lakes, Portland, Puerto Vallarta (twice), Guadalajara, San Diego and San Francisco. Being able to see so many places in s short amount of time is incredible. Along the way I have caught up with old friends and made new friends. I’ve been introduced to new foods and new cultures. This is truly living.

Its April and I am ready to see what the next 9 months have in store.

How is your New Years resolution going? Is 2014 your most memorable year? Let me know and until next time… Live, Life, NAKED!

Hello Portland!

Hello Portland!

pdx

A few weeks ago I traveled up to Portland, Oregon to check out the sights, sounds, food and parks. What a beautiful city, but i will say one thing… BRRRRR! hehe. I have to go back in the Summer to enjoy the city more, so many outdoor activities to check out, that the winter doesn’t allow you to.

I absolutely loved the Japanese Garden, it should be on everyone’s “Portland To Do List.”

Food Tips: Everyone raves about VooDoo donuts, and yes they are delicious and of course I had like 4. There are two other gems I came across that are must do’s: Eat Diner with its quirky and tasty donut hamburger sliders and yummy Canadian influenced Poutine (cheese, gravy and fries). Roxy Diner, open 24 hours is a great spot for a late night breakfast after the clubs. So tasty you will ask for a doggy bag to savor the left overs when you wake up.

I had a blast when I met Bolivia Carmichaels at CC Slaughters nightclub. You better follow her on twitter @QueenBolivia and hit her up when you get to Portland. She co-hosts a radio show on Wild Planet Radio and I was a guest on yesterday’s show. Take a listen listen, my interview starts at 17 minutes in. Enjoy the naked truth:

There you have it folks, some fun tips to Portland… Till next time, Live Life NAKED!

2014 The Most Memorable Year – @GayTravelGuy

Hello All my NAKED Friends.

Happy 2014. I hope you’re year is starting off in a great way. My resolution for 2014 is to make this the most memorable year ever. I will be traveling often and exploring new places, pushing my fears and hopefully overcoming some of them, meeting new people and sharing my journey with you all.

So far in the first two months of the year I have journeyed to 3 cities in 2 countries. First I went to Mammoth Lakes, California and went snow tubing down the side of a mountain at 45 MPH. That was quite a rush, until I was heading face first towards an ice block. Thankfully I got it under control and didn’t crash. What a thrill and so much fun!

In late January, went on a solo trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I can officially cross “Go on an international trip by myself” off my bucket list. But shhhh! Don’t tell me Mom, I told her I went with friends. She would have died of worry if she knew I went alone. Lets keep that our little secret. :)  I met many locals and explored the tourists side and the local side of the city. I have to say this was one of the best trips ever. The people were amazing, the culture was magnificent, the food was delicious and the beach was heavenly.

I then ventured up to the NW United States and took in the sights, sounds and food of Portland, Orgeon during their coldest weather in recent memory. I couldn’t be NAKED there, I would have died from the frost bite. hehe. Travel Tip: Lardo BBQ is a must. Their tasty and tangy brisket sandwich with sautéed greens and house fries. SUPERB!

Next up is a trip to Guadalajara, Mexico where I look forward to visiting the historic center and downtown regions and also a day trip to Tequila, Mexico.

The NAKED Truth continues in 2014 with my journey to the most memorable year. I hope you come along for the ride.

Come back soon and I will have blog entries for each city I visit along with videos and photos.

Twerking with Kimmy Gibbler!

A lot of us grew up with her on TV’s Full House. Kimmy Gibbler (actress Andrea Barber) was the Tanner’s neighbor and DJ’s best friend. I got to meet the fun and lovable Andrea at the 2013 Rock n Roll Marathon in Las Vegas. We talk about her putting away the neon tights, her love for New Kids on the block and some how I got her to TWERK for the very first time. Love it!

You can watch the full interview including our show girl kick dance here:

Hanging out with Elton John

Elton and J.Son OMG pose

 

Got to meet Sir Elton John last night in Las Vegas. He was a pretty cool guy, even taking time to pose for a pic and do my signature OMG pose.

He shared photos of his kids and their God-mother, Lady Gaga. His face lights up as he talks about his family. It was nice to see that side of him.

Watch this video of me and my friends on stage during the song “Saturday Nights Alright”

The NAKED Truth: Boycotting Russia

vodka

 

I have remained silent over the recent russian vodka boycott while I took some time to wrap my head around it all. The new anti-gay and anti-human rights laws passed in Russia are down right appalling. Will boycotts of Stoli really help make a difference? And is singling out a brand that has been supporting LGBT events and causes for some time really the best way to go? I am still not sure of the answers to these questions. I do know this, something has to be done. The new laws in Russia make it illegal to even say the word GAY or hold a rainbow flag. What if a child is reading a book with a photo of a rainbow? Will that child be attacked for having a “gay” symbol? They actually could! and that is frightening.

Stoli released an open letter in which they try to distance themselves from Russia and stand behind their LGBT marketing campaigns. However, when the owner of the company is named as one of the richest men in Russia, how dumb do they take us for believing they aren’t Russian owned? I would have more positive feelings if they said, “we are Russian owned and we urge Putin to re-think the laws.” That is  how you step up and truly show your colors on where you stand on the issue. By simply saying that though, any employee of Stoli working in Russia, could be arrested for spreading gay propaganda. Jail time can be a deterrent for stepping up and maybe that is the case here. Sometimes a high-profile arrest gets a movement going in to full gear. If a Stoli executive was to be arrested for standing up for human rights and waving a rainbow flag at the Russian capital that would make a statement.

I am still torn about fully endorsing a vodka boycott and for me a Russian boycott in general is more impactful. We should buy more consciously and look at what we are purchasing. Are the shoes we are buying coming from a place with horrible working conditions? Are we buying meat from a farm that has poor animal treatment practices? Is the country of origin lacking in human rights protections? Clearly Russia currently lacks respect for its citizens and those who are LGBT or LGBT allies. A boycott of all Russian goods sends a bigger and broader statement in my opinion then singling out one brand. A brand, I remind you, that spends money in the LGBT community.

After looking more into this I thought about the upcoming Olympics in Sochi, Russia and a boycott that could have a far wider impact on Russia. What if McDonalds and Coca-Cola were boycotted? Two of the largest brands in the World and largest Olympic sponsors. The mission of the boycott would be to get them to pull their agreements with the Olympics. The IOC (International Olympic Committee) would have to take notice then and really stand and do something. Could there be an Olympics without all the funds provided by two of the main sponsors? The IOC’s website saysRevenue generated by commercial partnerships accounts for more than 40% of Olympic revenues and partners provide vital technical services and product support to the whole of the Olympic Family.” Sounds like they need these sponsors to me. If the IOC was faced with sponsors pulling out ahead of the 2014 games in Russia, I would believe they would move fast in getting Russia to re-think the laws. The IOC has ties to every major government in the World and with their help can get a coalition together to pressure the Russian government. Now that is how you make change.

So while a boycott of Russian Vodka may make headlines in the current news hour, what will truly affect change in Russia? It’s all up to each individual to make at their own decision in this matter. Can you just imagine two of the largest brands pulling out of the Olympics? Now that is a statement on protest that I would be happy to see. So who is with me? What dates should we all boycott McDonalds and Coca-Cola? Two weeks with out their products could hurt their bottom line. Leave a comment believe, I am interested to see what ou think of my two cents.

Till next time stay safe, share a smile with a stranger and LIVE LIFE NAKED!
