Last Thursday, The Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (MDGLCC) presented its Spotlight Mega-Mixer Networker at Bacardi’s Headquarters and featured free food bites and cocktails courtesy of Bacardi & GREY GOOSE Vodka and was a great chance to mingle and network in a beautiful environment. Friday night we felt like country, so we headed to Scandals to hang with the cowboys. As always, Scandals was hopping! Saturday was filled with events and places to go. It started with the once a month FAT Art Walk, which always features amazing artists and is a visual pleasure. Afterwards, we headed down to Miami and the first stop was Floppy Roosters where we saw many things flop around on beautiful men. Then we headed to Club Bailo for some Latin infusion and ran into Milancita, Ivan of Miami Beach Gay Pride and of course the diva of the house Marytrini. It was then off to the beach for the re-opening of Club Boi in the downstairs space at Score. From what I saw, the Bruthaz really like the move and it looks like they found a permanent home. Afterwards it was off to Club Bekkoi for La Puta Nota afterhours and we ran into Raul Vegas and some of his friends while listening to the fabulous beats of Carlos G. On Sunday, Rumors celebrated the birthday of Brendan, and many of his friends and fans came out (Pictured here is Brendan with his parents).

Set amidst the remote and rugged Oceanside of Southern Brazil, this drama is an exploration of friendship, sexuality and personal identity for two teenage boys, with an erotic subtext that culminates in tender and mysterious ways.
Two Brazilian high school students, Martin (Mateus Almada) and Tomaz (Mauricio Barcellos) reconnect in a windswept coastal town where Martin’s grandfather recently passed away. Despite group outings and flirtations from local teenage girls, Martin and Tomaz gradually realize that their true interest lies in each other. In an abandoned seaside house, secrets are shared, old family wounds are re-opened, and together they grapple with the meanings of friendship and love, and sexual tension in a suddenly adult world.
