air-new-zealand-safety-video

Year in, year out Air New Zealand manages to throw the gauntlet down when creating the most entertaining safety videos. Being a frequent flyer myself, I tune out when the flight attendants do their schtick. Taking a creative approach certainly goes a long way to holding my attention.

Taking inspiration from The Lord Of The Rings cinematic franchise is hardly new for the airline company. I don’t blame them. People are obsessed with all things LOTR-related. Plus, they are the official airline of Middle Earth.

To celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit TrilogyThe Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the Air New Zealand flight crew has once again donned pointy ears. Director Peter Jackson returns to make another cameo in the clip. This time however, they managed to convince Frodo himself, Elijah Wood, to make an appearance. Check out their self-proclaimed, “Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made,” video directed by Taika Waitit below.

kesha-dr-luke-lawsuits

It’s no secret that Kesha and longtime producer Dr. Luke have a strained relationship. By the looks of it, it’s not going to get better anytime in the near future. Earlier today, the “Tik Tok” singer filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke. Hours later, he filed a countersuit against his former protégé.

Kesha alleges Dr. Luke was abusive from the get-go after signing her when she was 18. She claims he made repeated sexual advances toward her, and forced her to use drugs and alcohol. She points to one specific occasion where she woke up naked in Dr. Luke’s bed, sore, sick after taking ‘sober pills’ he gave her. Kesha also cites physical abuse in her lawsuit.

She is asking a judge to let her out of her contract with Luke. Her lawyer Mark Geragos spoke to TMZ.

celeb-cruises

Combining all the elements of a luxury liner, with a schedule of activities designed for today’s modern gay traveler, a ten day Atlantis cruise of the Mediterranean is definitely NOT your grandma’s cruise.

An all-gay cruise is what you make of it. Whether you are traveling as a couple, alone or with a group of friends, the team at Atlantis Events makes a point of scheduling “something for everyone” and truly living up to their catch phase… “The Way We Play!”

Starting with the welcoming boarding bear hug by their omni-present and effervescent cruise director Malcom, all of this is clearly evident.

Yes, there are still the usual hour by hour activities one would find on the Celebrity Equinox (the ship used in this adventure) such as outdoor spin classes, yoga instructions, table tennis, basketball court shooting, lawn games, the ever-popular bingo, feature films playing in the theater and so much more.

puerto-vallarta-accomodations-penthouse

I came out a bit more tanned than I like to be but otherwise, I haven’t a single complaint from my time in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A HUGE thank you goes out to the suite’s owner and Christian Serrano- you’ll soon read why- for ensuring that myself and my good friend Carson experienced the relaxing (and gay) trip of a lifetime this summer.

Before you click ahead, please note this article probably shouldn’t be read if you’re stuck up in Alaska for the winter without a plane to whisk you South of if you have an aversion to drinking and sunning cause there was a LOT of that going around, and I’m not going to apologize for it. Having been to tropical locales before I had high expectations for what the beautiful beaches and scenic old world feel of Puerto Vallarta purportedly had to offer- but girl, did it ever produce. The pinnacle of the trip however- pun intended- had to be the luxurious stay that Carson and I had at the Signature by Pinnacle Penthouse 6 Suite, above Banderas Bay and just two blocks from where the mo’s flock in speedos and not much else at the always busy Los Muertos beach. Homorazzi previewed this space before we headed there but just had to tell you how much it delivered.

love-travels-marriott-ad-campaign

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.

white-party-25th-anniversary-line-up

Well, the moment’s arrived: White Party Palm Springs’ Talent is revealed! And, I can’t WAIT to get down there!

The biggest name of all for me is definitely G.R.L.. A newer name to the scene I’m currently OBSESSED with their song Ugly Heart and they’re blowing up the charts right now with their featured performance on Pitbull‘s Wild Wild Love single. While I would never touch the man sexually, he himself seems to have the Midas touch these days and everything and everyone he attaches to turns to gold and these ladies are no exception. The all-girl band was formed by Homorazzi’s ever-loved Pussycat Dolls’ Robin Antin and includes a collection of 5 talented girls from America, Britain and even our home up here in Canada. Covering all their bases they’re looking to rock out the Sunday T-Dance which was dominated last year by Icona Pop and I’m sure G.R.L. will be able to fill the big stilettos left by those babes (WHOM I got a kiss from, just sayin’!).
