TropOut: Chill, Party & Explore

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!, Travel & Leisure

There are many different ways you can take “gaycation” these days. You have your gay cruises, circuit party festivals, prides, adventure travel, quaint bed & breakfasts getaways & plenty more. With all of these options to choose from, there has still been an opportunity for something different. That’s where TropOut comes in.

This past April, TropOut was launched and set in the beautiful paradise that is Phuket, Thailand. The event is described as “an exclusive week-long travel festival for gay travellers from all corners of the globe.” The week is build with balanced combination of of chilling, partying and exploring. I was fortunate enough to attend this event and had an incredible time. The week of fun in the sun was kicked off with a phenomenal welcome party on the beach headlined by Robin Schulz (“Waves, “Sugar,” “Prayer In C”). Throughout the week, TropOutters took part in pool parties, theme parties, speedboat island hopping, city excursions, cooking classes, and of course just chilled out and relaxed on the beach or pool side.

I’ve never heard of the small Brazilian fishing village of Cumbuco, but for some reason I’m inclined to take a quick jaunt over there. Perhaps, it’s due to this sexy campaign shot by Gastohn Barrios to promote the resort, Hell & Heaven.

Based on the pics of Igor Castro, Marcos Kartezs, Thiago Zanini and Vinicius Guervich, I’d say the place is more heavenly than the former 😉 Check them out frolicking in the sand below.

As you may or may not have ready in years past, I have been a huge fan of the biggest event of Spring: White Party Palm Springs. Not only is it a painful (to your tightening jeans) collection of some of the most carb starved and protein blasted, tan, beefcakes this side of Barcelona, but it’s a collection of amazing DJs and performers from yesterday and waiting still to explode. In past years we’ve seen the likes of Lady Gaga, Debbie Cox, and Ariana Grande, and this year will not disappoint as the latest and greatest little blond bombshell to hit the gays’ radar will be appearing: it’s Erika Jayne, bitch!

According to the annual Halloween Consumer Spending Survey, Americans will spend about $74.34 on Halloween-related expenses. That’s slightly down from $77.52 last year. All and all, the total spending is expected to reach $6.9 billion this year. That’s a whole lot of candy, costumes and decorations.

To celebrate the spooky holiday, WalletHub crunched numbers to determine which US cities are the best and worst places to celebrate Halloween. Using 16 key metrics including weather forecasts, party tickets, safety, costume stores and more, the website ranked the 100 largest cities in the United States. Find out which cities fared the best and worst after their detailed research.

Let’s be honest. Flying coach is not fun for anybody, especially when flying overseas. When you factor in crying babies, rude passengers, cramped seats on discount airlines, it can be downright hellish. Jennifer Aniston, I feel you girl 😉

The 46-year-old former Friends actress stars in a cute new commercial for Emirates. She’s shown wearing a robe looking for the shower and the bar. Sadly, neither are available on the flight she’s taking. Luckily for her, it’s only a nightmare. After waking up in her roomy luxurious Emirates bed, she immediately enjoys a cocktail at the bar. #toughlife. Check out the ad below.

2015-vancouver-pride-rapture

Fifteen years and counting and Rapture has not only stood the test of time, but proven itself to be a destination weekend of events worthy of the global scale.

Even though YVR has been getting a bum wrap these past few years as “no-fun-couver“, the evidence that at least we gays can pull it together for an incredible, long weekend is found in the line up that TFD Presents has created for this year’s Pride. Something for absolutely everyone, Rapture 15 will have you sweating and smiling the entire time through. You can get wet with beefcakes from across the continent, or dance up next to some of your favourite male models- hell, you might get a lesson in how to beat your face from the hottest drag queens on the scene. A huge thank you and hats off to the men and women behind the scene of this collection of events, serving up rainbow realness to the boys and men who live and visit our great town looking for an amazing time. You’ve found it.

Well Jeffrey Sanker certainly did it again.

I can’t say that I’ll be able to survive the WPPS experience my entire life as greys start to appear on my temple, but, until the day the day my knees finally give out on me (wow, that came out a lot dirtier than I wanted!), I’ll be attending and enjoying this epic event alongside friends and tricks, knowing that I’m experiencing one of THE parties of the year. 2015 was no disappointment.

The largest gay dance weekend in North America, over 30,000 men (and begrudgingly I admit a few women) arrive with sunscreen and not much else in hand to this event, ready to have the time of their lives. Not just a time to bang and run, this tiny town of overwhelming universal gay acceptance turns electric as men of all shapes and sizes are welcome and find a space to have an amazing time. That SAID, both the pictures you’ll see from this event and the majority of those in attendance you’ll actually meet, have been hitting the gym and skipping the carbs a BIT in prep for this one. So, while there’s a type for everyone: if your type is perfectly sculpted everything with a face to launch a thousand ships, you’re gonna have a great time here. I myself keep it trim to the point of looking like a PSA for malnutrition- and let me tell you: even an old twink like me can still find fun and love in the desert. And, so can you.
