I had a friend threaten to kill herself this week because she was tired of breathing. I had a collapsing roof that needed to be fixed with haste and all of the nailing and banging and visceral management that comes along with contractors trying to make your life better for thousands of dollars. I watched a famewhore grab a spotlight and run with it, tumbling beneath his own Milo significance, falling somewhere near his pretty little lying face and whatever hair color or sociocultural mythology or, let’s be honest, pedophilia could buy him a headline.

divine graceHello, Dolls!

Summer is here, and many of you are trading in your alabaster birthday suits for melanoma here in “The Sunshine State.” Florida is known for its exotic beaches almost as much as it’s known for its Mr. Magoo-like drivers and bath-salt-smoking cannibals. And our summer months are much more than stationary traffic and skin cancer! There are also thousands of original, unique and flavorful restaurants for everyone to enjoy!

Sassy that Walk  
Fashion designer, Marco Marco put on one hell of a runway show for L.A. Fashion Week on Oct. 18. The runway show even went viral thanks to the voluptuous Dexter Mayfield and the teen who gave the fierce shade, Brendan Jordan. The show featured what seemed like an endless amounts of hot boys, club kids and gender-bending performers and trans-women. One such model in the line-up was Orlando’s own Sassy Devine. This was Sassy’s second year walking for Marco Marco. Sassy was joined by former Orlando resident and former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Detox and many more!
