You’re too young to remember the actual Studio 54 I’m sure, but you may have heard of it and wanted to know what was so special about it. Why does the name, no the legend, live on all these years later? What was Studio 54?
To understand it completely you have to travel back to April 16th 1977 and to put that into perspective: that was the year that first saw VISA on credit cards, rings were discovered around Uranus (I’m not joking), the first spacewalk took place and Sarah Michelle Gellar was only 12 days old. Meanwhile over on 254 W. 54th Street, New York, two friends, Steve Rubell and Ian Shrager opened their doors for the first time and thereby started the legend of Studio 54.
In simple terms it was a night club; but a glittering one. They had tried owning and running steakhouses in the city but soon decided that there was more money to be made in alcohol, hence the idea of a club. With Rubell’s drive he was always the loud and gregarious one, they bought and renovated the old TV studio, transformed it into the club, hung an illuminated man-in-the-moon over the dance floor and the rest, as they say is history.

The Rentboy.com take down by the FEDS mostly by Homeland Security spells out the need of our resources to be used for better purposes here in America. If you have not heard of the Rentboy raid this week it was dozens of Homeland Security and FBI officers involved where so many of them showed up in court that the room was not big enough. You would ask if Homeland Security’s job is to fight terrorist instead of consensual sex among adults or the paid boyfriend time you find on Rentboy. Don’t they know they were being pretty legit keeping their money in the U.S. and not moving their headquarters to the Netherlands or so on.
You have to ask why our government is not seeking out more about the big corporations such as Microsoft and Exxon who avoid their taxes by hiding their money in other countries by buying up smaller businesses. Even in places they have no customers. Seems fair right? The founder of one of the popular gay porn sites responded with a quote on Facebook earlier today…

Quick Update for 2015:
1. There has been more club closings in Las Vegas and all the main events will be at the Piranha Nightclub instead of a larger club such as Krave or Share.
2. Gay Days has not listened to most of our suggestions but they did get Wifi at the Luxor allegedly. They are not booking rooms past the 15th of August which is kind of a hassle as we suggest staying at Tropicana or Cosmopolitan anyway but you will not get included pool passes or *cough* free Piranha nightclub entry.
3. Good news is that Uber will finally be back in Las Vegas just in time for this years PRIDE and Gay Days events. So to get downtown from the Luxor and other hotels for the pride parade will be much easier and cheaper than a taxi.
Gay Days Las Vegas Review and Suggested Changes
Looking back to September when Gay Days Las Vegas took place we were excited that it would be so much better then the premier year. We have been long time Gay Days fans of the Orlando events and thought we would join in on Las Vegas because by September we are still getting over the fun we had from June. The only problem is to many things went wrong in 2013 in Las Vegas to the gay scene and during pride that sort of made the Gay Days events turn out lamer to what we expected.

People across the world are getting smarter when it comes to drug testing for employers by using fake penises and synthetic urine. This trend comes as more are moving away from saliva testing in favor of urine because it is more reliable.
Individuals need to be clean for 72 hours to give a drug free urine sample. That is unless you have a fake dick and piss then you can do whatever you want (we hope).
These prosthetic penises contain a reservoir that can hold at least 60 ml of synthetic urine. The reservoir is a squeeze bottle with a syringe at the end of it, all of which is covered by a prosthetic dick. This is then strapped onto a man’s back and heat pads are used to keep the urine at body temperature.

There are lots of gay hook up apps out there but we all must admit all we really have time for is the most popular one. So why not make it perfect? New Grindr features we would like to see for premium monthly or yearly subscribers or anyone who uses the app…
1. Only visible in what city I’m in
2. Be able to swipe in message mode
3. When I block someone it actually blocks them.
4. When I delete someone’s message it actually deleted it. Rarely happens… Maybe it’s my phone or a glitch.
5. Be able to change the very embarrassing image icon that sticks out above all other app images. Continue reading Grindr Premium Features We’d Like to See

It was great to see Madonna and Justin Bieber appear on Ellen the other day for #MadonnaWeek because they are really the two most hated people in Pop Music. They have so many haters out there but you would not expect so many of Madonna’s haters to be from the gay community. Especially all that the Queen of Pop has done to pave the way for more gayness in concerts including a hot flesh show of boys wearing barely anything, gay friendly music videos, HIV awareness, raising awareness for LGBT hate in Russia risking her life playing in concert and the list goes on…
