According to LGBT marketing specialist group Out Now Global, the potential value of the LGBT travel market was set to reach $181 billion in 2013. Naturally, companies want a piece of that lucrative pie.

Marriott International launched its #LoveTravel this week in an attempt to connect with would-be customers who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender. It’s the first time the global hotel group has targeted same-sex couples. The main message is ‘all are welcome.’

“We see #LoveTravel as a universal, multicultural theme that appeals to communities throughout the world, resonating with consumers around the globe,” Marriott’s global marketing officer Karin Timpone said in a statement adding that the campaign was especially designed for “millennials and next generation travelers who value inclusiveness.”

The ads feature openly gay NBA player Jason Collins, transgender model Geena Rocero among other spokespeople. Images and videos plus personal stories will be available at LoveTravels.Marriott.com and at Marriott.com/gaytravel. Check out all the video clips from their #LoveTravels campaign below.

proud-to-play-youtube

Since their first upload, YouTube has strived to give everyone a voice. Following their #ProudToLove initiative last year, the video-sharing website is launching their #ProudToPlay campaign. Sports bring together people from all backgrounds and experiences through a shared passion, and YouTube shares that spirit of connecting diverse communities to make a difference.

For Pride Month, they’re honoring LGBT athletes, their supporters, as well as the YouTube Creators who stand up for diversity in sports and elsewhere—all of whom help create an equal and inclusive playing field for everyone. They are also encouraging their users to submit videos discussing what #ProudToPlay means to them. Join the conversation on the YouTube Spotlight Channel. Over the course of Pride month, they’ll be sharing a collection of videos about the LGBT community and sports.

jonah-hill-gay-apology

Over the weekend, Jonah Hill hurled an anti-gay slur to a photographer that was following him around. “Suck my d–k, you f—-t,” the 30-year-old 22 Jump Street actor said to the paparazzi. A couple of days later, Hill has offered up an apology during a stop on The Howard Stern Show.

Unlike other celebrities caught red-handed using the ‘f’ word *cough* Alec Baldwin *cough*, Hill owned up to it and took full responsibility, describing the incident as “a heartbreaking situation” for him.

The apology is near perfect in my eyes with exception to dropping the ‘gay friend card.’ He tells Stern later in the interview that he was spending the rest of the day with his gay friend who happens to be getting married soon. Check out the transcribed apology below.

justin-timberlake-not-a-bad-thing-video

Normally, I’m not a fan of music videos primarily consisting of footage from a concert tour but I’ll make an exception in this case. Along with Justin Timberlake performing “Not A Bad Thing” during a show, his new visual incorporates plenty of heart-tugging love stories of all kinds.

JT encouraged his fans to submit pictures and videos using #NotABadLoveStory. Not surprisingly, many answered the call. The result is a heartwarming video that features same-sex relationships, love for pets and even one person declaring self-love after battling mental illness. Check out the clip below.

josh-hartnett-gay-kiss

Are you watching Penny Dreadful? If not, you really should. It’s Showtime’s new psychological thriller that weaves classic horror origin stories such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula. If that doesn’t pique your interest perhaps Josh Hartnett can change your mind.

The 35-year-old actor showed off his bare butt on the premiere and on the most recent episode, dude went all Brokeback. Josh shares a lustful kiss with Reeve Carney who plays Dorian Gray. Here’s Buddy TV’s recap of the events leading up to the scene.

Dorian takes [Ethan] back to his place saying how sorry he is and tries lightening the mood with talk about cologne. It’s weird and intimate at the same time. Even the way he deposits sugar cubes in a drink says seduction…

Dorian decides to play a little mood music and spins some Sade, I mean Wagner. I blinked and Ethan rushes to Dorian, kissing him full on the mouth. This may have been the what the hell moment of the century. They get naked and go at it full Brokeback style. What?

Happy belated birthday and congratulations. Just two days after Melissa Etheridge turned 53 she married her partner Linda Wallem at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California on Saturday night. Coincidentally, Wallem just turned 53 as well. The two have been dating since 2010.

According to People, Etheridge sang a song she especially wrote to Wallem during the intimate outdoor ceremony. Etheridge’s four children reportedly participated in the wedding- Bailey Jean Cypher (17) and Beckett Cypher (15) from a long-term relationship with Julie Cypher and twins Miller Steven Etheridge and Johnnie Rose Etheridge (7) with former partner Tammy Lynn Michaels.

Celeb guests included Chelsea Handler, Rosie O’Donnell, Jane Lynch, Peter Facinelli, Whitney Cummings, and Sia. Melissa wore a grey suit while Linda wore a white dress. Check out a pic of the happy couple just moments after their nuptials below.

Sports Stud: Fernando Verdasco

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight tennis hottie, Fernando Verdasco. The 30-year old is a professional tennis player from Madrid, Spain and has earned almost $11 million in prize money in his career. He started playing when he was four years old and had a full time coach by the time he was eight years old.

Given his good looks and great body, Verdasco has been successful as a model as well, including the popular “X” campaign done by Calvin Klein a few years back. I’ve included some photos and videos from the campaign, as well as several other shots I’m sure you’ll appreciate. One such shot is one where he posed nude for Cosmopolitan Magazine back in the July 2008 issue to raise awareness of male cancer for Everyman Campaign. Enjoy!
