Friends of Homorazzi, and long time supporters of LGBT rights Kimpton Hotels have announced an amazing contest that everyone and anyone in Colorado should enter. If you’re sitting at your computer in CO and thinking, “I could really go for a wedding right now”, then the Hotel Monaco Denver has the answer.
Since the recent passing of the Civil Unions Act in Colorado, I’m sure a hell of a lot of people have been bolting to the altar. The Hotel Monaco wants to make it easier for you and your partner and throw you a wedding worth upwards of $20,000 just for a hundred word essay and a picture. Cake, DJ, booze, food catered by the amazing Panzano restaurant, vintage furniture, flowers, photography, event space, you know name it, you got it.
Here’s a small brief:
In celebration of Colorado passing the Civil Unions Act into legislation, long-time supporters of the LGBT community, Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Denver and Panzano Restaurant will award one lucky couple an all expenses paid “Civil Union Celebration” for up to 50 guests at Denver’s most vibrant, bold and seductive hotel and its award-winning restaurant. Everything for the perfect ceremony and reception will be included and the total package will be worth nearly $20k from the flowers, to photographer to dance floor and a honeymoon suite— ensuring that every last detail is accounted for in complete Kimpton style.
It’s actually that easy. Send your essay and picture to Robin.Ewing@hotelmonaco.com by April 26th, only a few shorts days away. A panel of judges will select five couples, and by April 30th, you can go to the Monaco’s facebook page and vote for your favourites. The couple will be announced by May 15th, and bing bang boom, you get to plan closely with the Monaco for a November 30th, 2013 date. FUN!
Just when I thought my fondness for the Monaco couldn’t get any stronger, they go and make dreams come true.

The first images of Thom Evans as the new
face body for D. Hedral surfaced a couple of months. The second batch featuring the 28-year-old former rugby player have been released. Set in a similar desert-like environment, the Scottish stud looks even better with his hair pushed back. God, I sound like Regina George(Rachel McAdams) in Mean Girls.
Can you believe 90210 star Jessica Lowndes gets to have her way with him anytime she wants. The two debuted their brand new relationship at the first weekend of the 2013 Coachella Music Festival. Lucky beyotch. Check out Evans showing off D. Hedral’s seamless underwear below.
Yesterday, I posted about the winners at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards along with former President Bill Clinton’s speech. Today, GLAAD uploaded a few more videos from the star-studded event that took place at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live on Saturday, April 20.
We have Darren Criss singing “Call Me Maybe.” Before you release a collective huge groan, the Glee star performs it differently. He does it with the “original lyrics” which happen to include Prop 8, DOMA, same-sex adoption and all kinds of LGBT references. I’m curious to know why GLAAD didn’t share Kelly Rowland’s performance with us.
Next we have Chris Evans joining his openly-gay brother Scott and their mother at the podium. The family banters back and forth about familial matters. It’s cute to see the Evans brothers interact.
For the event, both Betty White and Alex Pettyfer auctioned off kisses to the highest bidder. I wonder which attendee scored a chance to plant a big wet one on the Magic Mike star. Lucky mofo. As much as you’d think Alex was the main draw, it would seem that White was the one most desired. Not only did Pettyfer steal a kiss from her, but Cloris Leachman as well. She burst onto the stage trying to tongue the Hot In Cleveland actress.
Check out all the aforementioned videos, along with clips of Harvey Weinstein and Jennifer Lawrence introducing Bill Clinton and Drew Barrymore kicking the event off.
The first part of Gregg Homme’s new promo video ended with a cliffhanger. It showed model Philip Fusco receiving a booty call text in the wee hours of the morning. He quickly tidies his apartment and takes a shower to freshen up. And by freshen, I hope it included a certain place ;) Part 1 of One Night Stand ends with him stepping out of the shower.
The underwear company just released the second part. All nice and clean, Fusco opens his underwear drawer to pick the perfect Gregg Homme brief. Obviously, he tries on a couple to find just the right one to entice his late night gentleman caller. The doorbell then rings and… uh oh. Just like Reese Witherspoon, Fusco has a run-in with the law. Watch Part 2 below and find out how the fantasy continues. Hint. It’s a “happy ending.”
The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards took place on Saturday (April 20) in Los Angeles. Drew Barrymore hosted the event at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live which featured a performance by Kelly Rowland.
On hand for the annual event were Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire, Charlize Theron, Matt Dallas with his fiance Blue Hamilton, Darren Criss, Alex Pettyfer who gave Betty White a smooch, Chris Evans with his gay brother Scott and many more including Jennifer Lawrence who debuted a brand new hairstyle. The Silver Linings Playbook actress was there to present the inaugural Advocate for Change Award to Bill Clinton for his work campaigning to legalize same-sex marriage.
“I want to keep working on this until not only DOMA is no longer the law of the land, but until all people, no matter where they live, can marry the people they love. I believe you will win the DOMA fight, and I think you will win the Constitutional right to marry. If not tomorrow, then the next day or the next day.” – Bill Clinton
In 1996, the ex-president signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defined marriage as a partnership only between a man and a woman. In recent years, he’s changed his stance and campaigned heavily against anti-gay legislation proposed in various states. He credits his daughter Chelsea and her gay friends for seeing the way. Others honored last night include The New Normal, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Days of Our Lives. Check out all the winners, Clinton’s speech and a few more photos below.
For their last promo video, Andrew Christian and his bevy of underwear models found themselves tossed “Overboard” from their sailboat. Luckily, Jon Varak, Corey Lee and the rest of the models washed up on shore of the Florida Keys with three hunky lifeguards there to rescue them. Not just any sandy beach but the Island House Key West gay resort. Can you sense the promotional tie-in? I should probably note the resort is a frequent advertiser on our site. Much love.
The underwear label recently released promotional stills from their video shoot. Now you can see the swimwear *cough* bulges *cough* up close and personal. Check out the photos below. Be sure to share which stud you want to give mouth-to-mouth-resuscitation to in our comments section.
Funny or Die videos are hit or miss. When they’re on, they’re hilarious. Even though I don’t watch Game of Thrones, I was thoroughly entertained with their Gay of Thrones clip. I think you will too.
Jonathan is a very gay, very flamboyant hairdresser who chats up his client about the HBO fantasy series. He sassily gives a breakdown of the first two episodes of the season. You don’t even have to be familiar with the show to appreciate his delivery. From dropping a Christina Aguilera reference to talking about a “f**king beetle,” Jonathan hilariously reviews the show with lots of limp wrist hand gestures.
Though references to the show are dropped, his random confusing plot analysis won’t give away any spoilers. Check it out below.
In this day and age, a singer or actress releasing their own fragrance is nothing new, but a go-go dancer??? To be fair, Matthew Camp is a model as well. In fact, I first noticed him in those Nasty Pig ads. He’s one mighty fine mofo.
“It’s sexy. Being able to smell that on somebody else is really attractive. You get to wear a little piece of Matt. It’s like getting a little bit of his sexuality and putting it under your armpit, or wherever else you put it.” – Blake Lloyd (Camp’s partner).
Camp recently debuted a video ad to promote his new fragrance 8.5. Ever since I saw it earlier in the week, I’ve been waiting to share it with you. Since it’s a bit risque, I saved it for the weekend. 8.5 is a blend of black leather, earthy cedars, cocoanut and bourbon vanilla. If you’re curious to know if 8.5 refers to his man goodies, he says it references Fellini’s 8 ½. That said, he jokingly told Next magazine that he’s “not exactly eight and a half, but I’m not far off.” Well, hello. Here’s what he said about his fragrance and bottle design.
“I like the symbol of poppers, which have had a very long association with sex. They are in many ways a modern-day aphrodisiac. It seemed like a very fitting way to bottle this unique fragrance. It has an addictive smell, especially when mixed with the natural pheromones of an individual.” – Matthew Camp to Huffington Post
