Russian me crazy!

I was going through my blog to see what posts still need to be updated since the big move last year from Wordpress to blogger. And i stumbled on this one, about the hunky Russian gay icon, and naked DJ Pavel Patel. His striking good looks and daring attitude has made quite a bit of buzz. Weather its becoming Lana Del Rey, or posing as Beyonce in her iconic H&M Summer collection. Who could forget that! Comment below to tell me what you think of Pavel Patel, and as always rate, like, share, and enjoy!

Sunday Fun Day

Spring is still trying to find its way back to the Washington DC area. One day its beautiful out and the next, feels like you need to bring out the whole winter wardrobe. Right now i am wrapped in a fabulous shawl, trying to shake off the cold. But besides the shaky weather we have been experiencing, was thinking of something to warm us up. And nothing says summer and warm weather than guys in speedos or dangerously short shorts. Although  no one is complaining about that. I am not sure who the model is but its okay. find this set on Tumblr. If you know who the model is leave a comment, and like always, rate, comment, share, and enjoy!

Naked Truth


Tell me now
are you embarrassed to be in 
your own skin
too scared to just be you
do you cover the scars that you
let define you
or do you determine your self-worth
with the number on the scale
do you ever feel so lonely
like no one will ever understand
the feelings that haunt you daily
that make living a nightmare



one thing i should tell you
is that things can always change
bad things can get better
and soon you'll be okay.

Imran Khan, you ROCK!


From Delhi day of Rage, Protest 377
With the recent Indian Supreme Court verdict reinstating verdict 377, the criminalization of sexual acts “against the laws of nature,” including homosexual sex many, like me, were shocked and angry. I’ve since had many discussions with friends and family regarding the significance and weight of verdict 377, looking at how it doesn’t just affect gays, but every single person of consensual age, and how it violates basic freedoms and denies human rights.

India, like many countries in the East, believe that homosexuality is a concept born from the West, and that this Western concept has no place in Indian society. However, this is historically incorrect for India and Hindustani, as gays and others of the third sex (Tritiya-Prakriti) have been regarded as equals; they have been able to own property, shops, and live harmoniously with others. These have even continued into recent history, with Nepal decriminalizing homosexuality in 2007. Since then, over sixty LGBT individuals have run for various government offices. In Bangladesh and Pakistan, there have been greater advancements in the recognition and equality for those of the third sex (Hijira, or eunuchs). 

As activists around the globe, including myself, rallied together to protest and show our support and solidarity in the face of the 377 verdict, Bollywood stars have come out and voiced their opinions against the decision. Many actors, actresses, and directors have made statements calling for change in the governmental mindset towards homosexuality. They follow the theme that everyone should be treated equally, and have the same rights as others as well as the freedom to love whoever they choose. With so many conservative and “Victorian” views on diversity and homosexuality, these voices show there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Even with this verdict, change will happen.

From Delhi's Day of Rage Rally 
In the West, we may not be able to fathom our rights being taken away and being treated like a criminal, or being able to break the law by whom you choose to love in your bedroom. With the growing equality of marriage and in the work place, the LGBT still struggles. Some states still have anti-sodomy laws, as well as laws against anal sex. While we may not face the life changing punishments like castrations, jail time, and hard labor, many in the East still do. And beyond that, the simple fact of being homosexual can be used to blackmail individuals, for being who they are.

Facebook took down this picture of Kanwar Abit Singh Saini, a 32 year old gay sikh.
Many of us living in the West have ties to India; tell me how the 377 verdict has had an effect on you, or your friends and peers. And be sure to check out a few pictures below from rallies and protests around the word, one of which is iconic. Check out the light hearted video starring Bollywood actor Imran Khan, which addresses some of those questions that straight people ask and wonder about homosexuality. And as always, rate, comment, share, like, and enjoy! Thank you for reading. XOXO

Did he just say Man Candy!

Its finally Friday, after a long week of work, shopping, Holidays, and other nonsense. Its time to relax and get ready for the weekend with a nice bottle of wine, or tequila if your feeling adventurous. And what could make the start of the weekend even better, How about some Man Candy! (Yes, I really just said Man Candy). While searching in various places on the internet I found Indian Television Star Yuvraj Thakur. He has been featured in a couple of commercials with one of our favorites Shahid Kapoor. He was the star of TV drama Best Friend Forever, and is currently in a reoccurring role in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain. Tell me what you think of Yuvraj Thakur! And as always rate, comment, like, and enjoy!
