Who is the Latino gay man? As a person who fits comfortably within this category, I do consider myself somewhat of an expert on the subject. As the word 'latino' encompasses many nations and regions, so, too, does the term 'gay latino' encompass a rather interesting amalgamation of qualities and attributes. At the risk of generalizing, allow me to put forth a profile of sorts; a written account of what makes our 'posse' so fascinating to so many.
I was watching an episode of Chelsea Lately the other night and the panel discussed a 2007 Entrepreneur Magazine article stating that gay bars were among businesses that were facing extinction over the next decade. This made me laugh. Not just because Chelsea and her writers had come up with a few good one liners about Grindr, but because I was actually putting together a feature on Score's 13th Anniversary Celebration.

For 18 years, Twist has been serving some of the best entertainment in South Beach. It has been a staple for local and tourists alike. In the nightlife industry, that type of longevity doesn't just happen. It takes a lot of work and continuous reinvention. It also takes a strong commitment to the community. Twist also remains dedicated to the Latino community with Bar Five, a space that offers a rich Latin experience seven days a week. Recently, I had the opportunity to chat with Joel Stedman of Twist to talk about some of their history and their future plans.
Orlando Florida's Gay Days celebration is back this year with a theme that will roundup all the “Cowboys” at the happiest place on earth! With its inception in 1991, the event has grown exponentially from a one day event attracting 3,000 to a weeklong event with more than 150,000 celebrants from across the nation and around the globe! In its 21st year, the event continues to grow thanks to the hard work of its supporters and the GLBCC of Orlando – the birthplace of this fabulous event.
