I Never Came ‘OUT’ Technically

In: Behind The Cast, Redd
out

I never really came out. I was basically yanked out of the closet by my mother one day by asking me indirectly if I was gay. Which I really didn’t have a problem with since I wasn’t intending to come out anyhow. What I was didn’t affect my relationship with my family or my feeling of acceptance.

I was raised a born-again christian most of my life and internally I battled with coming out. My issues were not really so much about what other people thought but what I personally believed was right (ok maybe a little of what people thought but that was secondary). Religion and my beliefs made this battle difficult. Everything I realized that I was, was everything my religion told me was wrong and immoral. Through the years my beliefs have changed…I began to question religion and the many loopholes it had. I mean seriously….if God loves everyone, how come these religious people say he doesn’t love gays? Since when did the word ‘everyone’ have an exception…isn’t that the point of the word is that it encompasses all?

Libation of the Month

In: Redd, Sports & Health
ginger

Once a month I will be reviewing a beverage, both alcoholic & non-alcoholic, that I am currently enjoying or am appalled with.

This month’s bevy is Canada Dry’s Green Tea Ginger Ale. A refreshing blend of ginger ale & green tea. The unique blend of the two flavours brings an interesting taste to the palette. It also boasts about containing “52 mg of poly phenols per 250 mL serving”. Research indicates that poly phenols may have antioxidant characteristics with potential health benefits. They may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. This carbonated yumminess is also great as a mix for cocktails and goes very well with Grey Goose or Ketel One.

100 calories per 250 mL (8.5 oz.) serving, 55 mg of sodium, and 26 g of sugars.

Cuba…the Review

In: Behind The Cast, Redd, Travel & Leisure

So, I’m back to reality after an unplanned and totally spontaneous trip to Cuba this past week. Being back in reality sure sucks but a quick getaway refreshes one’s soul. Here’s a slide show video of my Cuba trip:

** Click the ‘HQ’ button below to view the video in higher quality **

I’ve heard many stories about Cuba about what to expect, and frankly, a lot of them were untrue. Here are a few things I was told I’d soon find out for myself:

1. The food is really bland and not very good. – The resort we stayed in actually had decent food and wasn’t too bland. We did bring our own ketchup which was a good call for the wonderful omelettes they made for breakfast. The only ketchup they have is from Brazil and let me tell you… ketchup made in Brazil is horrendous. Ask anyone who’s been to Brazil: Brazilian ketchup is basically sugar, water and some food coloring. It was void of any tomato flavour. I survived on fish and rice mostly on this trip which is great cause I love fish (not that other variety though ;) and I don’t get to have it as much as I’d like when I’m home.

2. Cubans are very poor and they will steal from you. – Inside the resort was actually very safe. Mind you, I did carry my passport and the very few electronics that I did bring with me at all times: better be safe than sorry! Other than that, our other belongings were safe. Even in Havana, I didn’t feel unsafe in terms of pickpockets and thieves.

3. The hotels are gross and disgusting. – We opted to go the frugal route and went with a 3-4 star resort (Aguas Azules formerly Club Amigo), which ended up to be a good choice. The rooms were very clean and so were the bathrooms. I didn’t need it to be super posh since we were barely in the hotel rooms. We would get up at around 9am, have breakfast, and head to the beach all day until about 5 PM. So we really were only in our rooms to sleep and take a shower.

True Blood

true-blood

What do I do Tuesday nights after I hit the gym, you ask? I’ve been hooked on this show True Blood on HBO who stars Anna Paquin. I’ve always had an obsession with Vampire movies so naturally I was drawn to this HBO series from the creator of Six Feet Under (another great show). FYI, if you’re not into Vampires… Jason Stackhouse is reason enough to watch this show: may-jah cutie! Here’s the synopsis from tv.com:

So much for the first day of Spring… You would expect to see flowers blooming, cherry blossoms everywhere, and verdant green grass. Not so much for Vancouver! Yes, we live in one of the wettest places in the North West; eight months out of the year I really feel like I’m living in the wrong city, but the very short Summers we get are oh so worth living in this beautiful province. So, just a little more waiting to get through “Wet Spring”, and into a much drier, happier Summer. In the meantime, I will be taking my double dose of Vitamin D to keep myself from slitting my wrist.

Or, I could also go away! Just booked a last-minute trip to Veradero, Cuba, 2 days ago and I will be leaving this Monday. Goodbye rain… (at least for a week) and hello a week of sun, beaches and cocktails. I’m really looking forward to just soaking up the sun and restoring my tan’s former golden glory (looking a little yellow at the moment). I’m planning to visit Havana, and taking in some of Hemingway’s favourite sites. I will be taking lots of photos over that week and will give you loyal fans updates during my trip! It is my first time visiting Cuba. Yes, you’re jealous but don’t hate ;) We here at Homorazzi love to travel… so watch out for more travel adventure articles ahead!

Rick & Steve – The Happiest Gay Couple

In: Redd, TV Shows

ricksteve

I’ve recently discovered Rick & Steve…yes it’s on its second season I’m a bit late but I love it and and totally hooked. Margaret Cho, Peter Paige, Alan Cumming and Wilson Cruz lend their voices to the characters: Rick & Steve (a bi-racial couple), Kirsten & Dana (a lesbian couple) and Chuck & Evan (older guy/younger guy scenario).

We at Homorazzi of course have our very own versions of Rick & Steve which would be Donovan & Brian except they’re funnier, more stylish & fabulous (they could possibly be the happiest gay couple I know). Also we have Adam who reminds me of Evan, the young guy that likes to hunt for the mature man (the cougar in this instance is the hunted). The music for the series was written by the same people that did Avenue Q. Meet the characters here: Rick & Steve Cast BIOs.

What I love about the show is it’s very relevant and up to date on the topics they tackle. Anywhere from gay marriage to blogging. I will definitely be following this series. You can catch this show on LOGO.
