Totally Exodus
Former Exodus International president Alan Chambers has written a book with his wife, and they’re inviting you to a release party at the Writer’s Block Bookstore in Winter Park on October 2.

After 12 years of serving as the president of Exodus, Alan Chambers and the board closed the nonprofit that was geared to Ex-Gaying the Gays. Since then, his bio claims he’s made great strides towards building relationships with the LGBTQIA (your acronym is growing!) community and has encouraged the global church to do the same. The book is supposed to tell his story: a committed believer who has same-sex attractions, an author, a husband and a father.

Despite Alan Chambers’ prior history and views, My Exodus: From Fear to Grace encourages everyone to look for and to affirm the image of God in everyone. Guess you can’t judge all books by their covers.

Sonique Boom
Like it or leave it, the 2015 Video Music Awards aired on MTV recently, as they do, this time hosted by Miley Cyrus. Despite the tense Real Housewives moment between Miley and Niki Minaj, the apparent animus sadly did not include one cartoon pop star throwing a drink in the other’s face. The night was about the music, fashion and, wait a minute, it was basically an altar for Taylor Swift and a soapbox for Kanye West.

The nightcap to the evening, though, was a special performance of “Dooo it” by Miley Cyrus which included a colorful romp of 30 twerking, death-dropping RuPaul’s Drag Race alums.

Best of all, one of the dancing divas was local Parliament House Footlight Player showgirl, Sonique. PH was very proud of their girl and gleefully praised her VMA appearance. And that’s what’s good!

Mo’ Mojo for You
Lane Blackwell, owner of Mojoman Swimwear, recently announced that he will be opening a second location of the popular swimsuit and underwear store.

Much like Fairvilla expanding to the tourist district with their boutique, the gay-owned Mojoman will be venturing out and catering to the adventure-seeking tourists who like to wear itty-bitty bathing suits. With most stores in the area only carrying non-flattering board-shorts, Mojoman will feature designer swimwear, underwear and other clothing apparel.

The new Mojoman location will be located at the Artegon Marketplace and will be scheduled to open on October 15, the same day and location for Watermark’s Third Thursday Networking social. We predict numerous sexy Brazilian tourists packing themselves into Mojoman and Artegon. We better shave!
