What’s HOT! South Florida June 17 , 2010
Friday night I headed to South Beach to get together with Hotspots’ newest Miami sales representative, Jessica Maquera. We went to Waterfront for Milancita’s grand opening of Let’s Mambo Fridays. As is the case with Milancita.com promotions, the club was packed and the energy was hot. The show starred Vegas Dion, Johanna Douglas and Victoria Sky. Congratulations go out to owner Jorge Gongora and of course Milancita and her staff. Sunday afternoon was the return of the Market Bazaar to the Shoppes of Wilton Manors. After a few months hiatus this event was packed with shoppers who made it clear that they love the Market Bazaar.
Sunday night was the 1 year anniversary of Jackhammer T Dance being relocated to Atomic/Boom and Chris and Russ pulled out all the tricks to make this party as successful as we all expect from the Jackhammer name. DJ Marc Scott was playing the Disco classics mixed with some new sounds like only he can. Kudos goes out to Chris, Russ, Tim, Craig, DJ Marc Scott, Diego, Lee and the entire Jackhammer staff. Afterwards I headed across the street to Bill’s for their Sunday Trannie Palace which this week featured the Miss and Mr. Stonewall Pageant. The conrtestants were Latrice Royale, Charleze Angel, Nikkay, Kira Channel, Mia LeMore, Vision, Malique and Cameron Scott.

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to use the occasion of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month to announce its new policy guidelines regarding gender change in passports and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad. Beginning June 10, when a passport applicant presents a certification from an attending medical physician that the applicant has undergone appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition, the passport will reflect the new gender. It is also possible to obtain a limited-validity passport if the physician’s statement shows the applicant is in the process of gender transition. No additional medical records are required. Sexual reassignment surgery is no longer a prerequisite for passport issuance. A Consular Report of Birth Abroad can also be amended with the new gender. As with all passport applicants, passport issuing officers at embassies and consulates abroad and domestic passport agencies and centers will only ask appropriate questions to obtain information necessary to determine citizenship and identity. The new policy and procedures are based on standards and recommendations of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), recognized by the American Medical Association as the authority in this field.
Kick off the summer with love thanks to OhMiBod’s Freestyle and Club Vibe. These new music massagers allow adults to move and groove together with every sound. The Freestyle is the world’s first completely wireless music massager. When its transmitter is connected to a headphone jack, the vibe will move with the tunes providing ultimate freedom of movement and motion. Whether it’s a party for one or play with a partner, the Freestyle allows users to rock their body wire-free. The Club Vibe includes an element new to the world of music massagers: ambient mode. The toy’s controller takes in the sound around the user and vibrates to the input – combining today’s technology with the traditional enjoyment of electric pleasure. In this mode, consumers can turn up the volume and literally feel every sound – whether it’s the tunes on the radio or a lover’s voice. Both the Freestyle and Club Vibe are available to purchase in retail stores across the country or online at OhMiBod.com
“The Mormon Proposition” is an indictment of the Mormon Church’s historic involvement in the promotion and passage of California’s Proposition 8 and the Mormon religion’s secretive, decades-long campaign against gay rights. The film takes place in California and Utah as Mormons, following their prophet’s call to action, wage spiritual warfare fought with money and lies against US citizens and their fight for marriage equality and the rights that come with marriage. Narrated by Dustin Lance Black and directed by Reed Cowan. Some of the amazing reviews it has been given are: “Amazing! Will knock your socks off . . . could be the movie of the year.” – The Huffington Post, “Sparks an informed dialogue.” – Variety. You can see “8: the Mormon Proposition” in theaters in June across the nation, but if you want to purchase this movie pre-orders are being accepted at WolfeVideo.com starting July 13th for only $19.95.
