Sand Blast Weekend in Atlantic City

gay NJ, LGBT NJI will admit that I have a soft spot for New Jersey guys. I’m not sure if it is the hair, accent or guido vibe so many of them have, but if you suffer from the same affliction you may want to take a road trip to Atlantic City, New Jersey for Sand Blast Weekend, July 18-20th.  I won’t be able to check out this event but two of my friends, Cole and Hunter – The Maverick Men, will be down there this year.  If you see them tell them BosGuy says, “Hello”.

Sand Blast Weekend – Atlantic City, NJ – July 18-20th

Happily Filled

No Vacancy SignLast week when I was walking around in Ogunquit, Maine I saw this sign.  I must have been in a pervy state of mind, because I laughed out loud when I saw how The Sparhawk chooses to let people know they have no vacancy.

The marketing professional in me immediately thought of suggesting the following tagline to the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce, Get Happily Filled in Ogunquit.

Marriage equality makes in roads in Kentucky (and maybe Colorado)

Marriage Equality in Kentucky, same sex marriage KentuckyYesterday was not a good day for those opposed to marriage equality.  A Federal judge in the red state of Kentucky struck down the state’s 2004 marriage ban – making this the 23rd pro-marriage ruling in the past year.  Read more here.

Additionally, six same-sex couples from Colorado filed a federal lawsuit challenging their state’s ban on the freedom to marry yesterday.  Based on the Kentucky ruling (not to mention the 22 other states that have ruled the same over the past 12 months) it would seem likely that the increasingly purple state of Colorado may be on it’s way to saying “I do” to marriage equality as well.

 

 

Men’s sports uniforms ranked

mens best sports uniformsLast week the website, Jezebel, had an article that was brought to my attention called Men’s sports uniforms ranked.

Perhaps the author wrote it best,  “The World Cup has presented us with lots of excuses to gaze upon Thighlights, but are soccer uniforms really the most awesome uniforms in the sporting world?”

Check out Dodai’s compilation of the best men’s sports uniforms here.

Indiana says “I do” to marriage equality

marriage equality, gay rightsYesterday, US District Court Judge Richard Young ruled against Indiana’s statute banning marriage equality, making Indiana the latest state to see their marriage ban struck down since the US Supreme Court ruled in its historic marriage ruling last June.

Judge Young wrote, “In time, Americans will look at the marriage of couples such as Plaintiffs, and refer to it simply as marriage – not same sex marriage.

Congratulations Indiana – and welcome to the 21st century.

Brian Sims hosting “Bears and Beers” mixer during Bear Week

Brian Sims Bear Week in ProvincetownThe ever so dreamy PA State Representative, Brian Sims, who I first wrote about back in 2012 (as one of my Men of Twittah) and more recently wrote about in my post, Lusting After Brian Sims, will be in Provincetown during Bear Week hosting a fundraiser for his campaign.

Lord knows I’ve spent a significant amount of time scouring the internet for a shirtless photograph of this handsome, progressive, gay state representative.  Since I won’t be in Ptown during bear week, I’m encouraging anyone who might be there to be on the look out for this handsome Pennsylvanian sunning himself.
