Twitter and Facebook filled with Thanksgiving thoughts

Just five months ago, Steve Grand was unknown.

So the openly gay singer who became a YouTube sensation in July with his video All-American Boy is feeling especially grateful this Thanksgiving.

'I'd like to wish all of you a very special Thanksgiving!' Grand wrote in a Facebook post to supporters on Thursday (28 November).

Canada’s progressive Universalist Muslims are seeking funds to hold an Iftar prayer and dinner for LGBT people and their friends during the holy month of Ramadan

A group seeking to fundraise to hold an LGBT friendly iftar prayer and dinner to mark the Muslim holy month of Ramadan has nearly reached their target on the Indiegogo crowd funding website.

Canada’s Universalist Muslims are an LGBT welcoming group of progressive Muslims and they are hoping to hold the 10th Salaam Peace Iftar later this month at the El-Tawhid Juma Circle Toronto Unity Mosque.

We check out the Picasso Museum, have cocktails and tapas, visit Barcelonetta Beach and breakfast at La Boqueria market on a short break to Barcelona

I think it is probably illegal to go to bed early with a good book in Barcelona. Something about an early night is just wrong in the land of flamenco, fiestas and nights out starting at midnight. But no fear, a little bit of sun and some Gypsy King music and I am back in my 20s – flinging caution to the wind, staying up all hours and quaffing too much red wine.

Gay Star News has surveyed the world’s gay men to get an insight into how they start their day

It may sound slightly trivial, but I’m always fascinated by what people eat, how they make decisions about food and what are some of the assumptions that people are making about the food that they’re eating.

This week I’ve surveyed 100 gay men around the world to find our what they have for breakfast. It may not be the most rigorous of studies, but it’s a pretty strong sample of gay men primarily in the 25 to 45 age bracket and a good mix of global locations including the US, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, France, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Want to get lean and strong? It’s time to embrace all things Italian

I have spent too many years of my life miserably scanning restaurant menus for low-carb, low-fat and, inevitably, low-fun meal options.

What I’ve never understood is that when you travel through Mediterranean countries, and it was Italy where it particularly hit me, the men are generally lean and athletic and they are happily chowing into big bowls of pasta. Some bread with that? Sure! Wash it down with some wine at lunch? No problem!

As I contemplate a dry chicken salad, the injustice is infuriating.
