Since last weekend was Tampa Pride, I felt it fitting to talk about pride and something I was fortunate to have seen. Last Friday Associate Publisher Scott Holland, Classifieds Manager Mike Trottier and I attended the Divas Show at Hamburger Mary’s Tampa featuring Leigh Shannon. The show was nothing less than amazing. There was a large party celebrating a birthday for Aaron and he was turning 21. Now, I don’t know Aaron, but he was there with his friends and his mom. His mom was so proud of him, cheering for him as he was brought on stage for his birthday.

Last Week in Review

 

Since last weekend was Tampa Pride, I felt it fitting to talk about pride and something I was fortunate to have seen. Last Friday Associate Publisher Scott Holland, Classifieds Manager Mike Trottier and I attended the Divas Show at Hamburger Mary’s Tampa featuring Leigh Shannon. The show was nothing less than amazing. There was a large party celebrating a birthday for Aaron and he was turning 21. Now, I don’t know Aaron, but he was there with his friends and his mom. His mom was so proud of him, cheering for him as he was brought on stage for his birthday. I approached his mother and told her how amazing it was to see the unconditional love she had for her gay son and how very lucky he was to have the obvious support from his mother. She started to tear up, hugged me and thanked me. I thanked her in return for being a role model for all parents who have gay children. That, my friends, is pride. Until next week, much love to you all. Peace out – Scott.

From bikers to drag queens and everything in between – that’s the motto at Reservoir Bar in Ybor City. This local watering hole is the home to the infamous MaMa. She’ll make sure your drinks are always full and that by the time you leave the bar, you’ll know everyone in there. You can always find local celebrities, like Mark of MC Film, frequenting this place, so if you want to be in the know and want some good company, head to the Res.
