I Only Have One Photo In My Hand…

They’ve had various photo shoots, live events, and eliminations; it’s now down to the final 9, and our very own Adam is one of the finalists! This is the 2nd Annual, Vancouver’s Next Gay Top Model, and last year’s winner- Aaron Ursacki- will be passing on his title (his tiara- let’s call it what it is!) Thursday, April 2nd at the Grand Finale at Celebrities Night Club.  

Now, for a moment, let’s pretend I’m Tyra [insert dream music- fade to...]

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!

pad-thai

OK, so, you’re dancing up a storm at Numbers; it’s late, probably after 2 AM; you look at your friends- well whoever is still left and unclaimed for the night- and think of the amazing night that you’ve had. With smiles on your faces, you exit the club and somehow, someway, you end up walking down Davie to claim your hard-earned prize: a couple of slices of pepperoni pizza or that large poutine. Yes, the pizza tastes great, and the poutine freakin’ rocks, but haven’t you ever asked yourself: is this all there is?

Now, I’ve done a fair amount of traveling, and if there is one thing that is constant from the villages of rural West Africa, to the bustling cities of Southeast Asia, and over to the touristy seaside towns of Mexico, it’s the amazing late night street food. I can recall some great memories at a kebab shack at 4 AM after a night out at Manana with the boys in Puerto Vallarta, and staying up late yakking and munching on fried plantains with friends under the moonlit sky in Mali. But, the best late night food by far would have to be street-side pad thai in Bangkok:  I don’t think I’ve ever had a more amazing meal in my life. And, if I remember correctly, it was after an “interesting” live show in the gay district.

Every few days we’re going to highlight one of the cast members so you can get to know them a bit better.  We decided to start of with Saleem for two reasons. 1. He celebrated his birthday with a huge Frat themed party this past weekend and 2. He’s the only one without a write-up in the Cast Page. Stay tuned for pictures and videos from the Frat themed event.

Homorazzi FRAT PARTY!

In: Behind The Cast, Patrick, Videos

This past weekend we celebrated Homorazzi’s own Saleem’s birthday along with our good friend DVD’s as well! The theme was “Frat Pad”, so us frat boys and girls dressed accordingly- and scantily where possible! Hot boys, jello shots, beer bongs, and sexy tunes from DJ Landon James: it was a riot. The party started around 8pm, and I’d say it was pumpin’ ’til around 3am… and in Kits to boot! Some made it out to the bar after, but I was not one of them- a little too “dizzy” by the end of the night. I blame Bill Cosby. (Editor’s Note: we at Homorrazi do realize that Bill Cosby is a Jell-O PUDDING sponsor, but couldn’t take this joke away from Patrick)!   

It was an amazing chance to celebrate with so many people we either didn’t already know or don’t get to see very often, and receive  so many overwhelming compliments and support for Homorazzi.com- we’re thrilled about such a positive response!

18+ only! Check out the video recap of the night:

Take Back Our Streets

Hey Everyone,

I had written a post right before this one, and it was pretty intense. I was writing it in pure anger, and I let it sit for a while and then I deleted it. It was a good vent, but I don’t think I wanted that post to represent my true feelings about this situation.

The situation I’m referring to is one which we have been keeping up to date with here at Homorazzi. Last week, someone had been sucker punched in the head at the Fountainhead, and was taken to hospital in critical condition. He then fell into a coma, and is not expected to recover.

Before I found out he lost his life, my head was spinning into another dimension. I just kept remembering other events this past year, Jordan Smith, Chad Wilkinson the countless other times. Then I kept remember when I was managing at The Majestic/Pulse Nightclub that the police would come and let me know that there has to now be a police presence on the street, and now this.

Fountainhead Fight – UPDATE

In: Behind The Cast, Dan
fountainhead-update

To follow up to my original post about the fight that broke out at the Fountainhead Pub on Davie Street last Friday night, the following information is quoted from the front cover article of the Vancouver 24Hours, for March 17, 2009;

“…62-year-old Ritchie Dowie [was] sucker punched in the head.”

Dowie’s friend Lindsay Wincherauck is quoted as a key witness to the event, and was the voice behind the interview printed by 24Hours. His descriptions of the actual event are quite graphic, alluding to the event being more severe than I believe most bystanders originally expected, “The blow knocked Dowie to the ground, smashing his head on the tiled floor and sending him into a coma.”

The article continues with Wincherauck confronting the assailant, questioning him, “I asked him why he did it and he said ‘because he’s a fag. He deserved it, he touched me.’”

Due to this stated, and the overall nature of the events the VPD spokesperson Const. Jana McGuinness has stated that police investigators are still looking into the acts of violence being a possible hate crime. The assailant, Shawn Woodward, 35 has currently been charged with aggravated assault.

I’m a Saint!

st-patricks-day-limerick

So in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, and since I’m Patrick and I’m also a saint, I thought I’d share a Homorazzi themed limerick with you today.

A site where the homos are talking,
With content that seems a bit shocking,
They write what they think
Tainting everything pink,
Their private lives here for the mocking.

Don’t forget to wear green or you get pinched in the bootay!

Here’s another limerick submitted by Dan’s friend Jenny.

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour
before the devil knows you’re dead.

If you have any others, post them as comments.
