This could be one of the biggest stories of 2009 especially with so much unnecessary craziness in LGBT party circuit with "No Shows" at highly publicized events, promoter's broken promises, and outrageous prices for overly hyped Pride events. But there may be some light at the end of the tunnel for the circuit scene.
It's seems 4 clubs have gotten together to put together, which at first glance, will be one of the biggest circuit parties of the year. Voodoo Lounge and the Situation Room of Fort Lauderdale have teamed up with Club Boi and Vault Miami of Miami; to create the South Florida Circuit Party, Thanksgiving weekend in South Florida. All of these clubs are AWESOME, each bringing their own distinct charm and flavor to the table, but put these clubs together to create this traveling party each night, should be alot of FUN. I am very excited to see how this one turns out. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard about this event, 4 competing clubs joining together to create an absolutely mind-blowing party. It's music to my ears, and a saving grace to the club circuit scene, which most of us love, but have been disgusted by, with the scandals, feuds, and "the like" in recent memory.
If you feel the South Florida Circuit Party isn't enough, the White Party on South Beach will be in full swing Thanksgiving weekend as well. So if you are not one of those 10.2% (staggering number, 2010 will be better for everyone I think) who are unemployed at the moment, head down to Miami for one exciting Thanksgiving weekend. The high temperature in Miami today, 82 degrees and sunny. Think about it???!! For more info, check out www.thevaultmiami.com, which has info and links to all the different nights' events.

Broward County's first openly gay mayor was sworn in to office Tuesday. His new role was celebrated by gay and lesbian activists.
Growing up, Ken Keechl was always fascinated by politics, but thought he could never get elected as an openly gay man. Tuesday morning, Keechl, 47, raised his right hand as he was sworn in as Broward County's first openly gay mayor. For the next year, he will preside over the dais of Florida's second-most populous county (1.8 million residents).
``Whether you know it or not, your vote to make me Broward's mayor was historic in America -- but that's a discussion for another day, in another venue,'' Keechl said at the swearing-in ceremony at Broward County Hall.
Keechl was selected by his fellow commissioners. The job of mayor rotates each year among them.
``We've waited so long for this day to come,'' said Michael Albetta, president of the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus. ``We're honored and pleased that the eight other county commissioners see his professionalism and are not judging him on his personal lifestyle.'' Keechl, a Democrat, was first elected in 2006 when he trumped veteran Republican politician Jim Scott for the District 4 seat. He had previously built a name for himself as an activist in the gay and lesbian community and for protesting large-scale development.

When i first saw him i was like yes this is the one that i have been long for and yearning for all my life. He came in an swept me off me feet, in the begining everything was heaven. Long walks on the beach, eating out at fancy upscale restaraunts and lavish shopping sprees. He gave me everything i wanted and need physically mentally and emotionally. 6 months into the relationship is when it started to go down hill. One night as i laid asleep is whn he took advantage of me and raped and bat me up for no reason but the story doesnt end there that was just the begining of a wirl wind of events.
Confessions pt. 2
The abused lasted for 4 years as i was physically,emotionally, and mentally abused by the man who at one point in time cared for me and said he loved me and i in return the same for him. But everytime i saw him hatred built up inside of me so much hatred i thought i would explored or turn into my alter-ego which i didnt want too do. For 4 long years i was held captive in side of our beautiful 6 bedroom 5 bath home over looking the ocean. I stayed for him because i had no other choice but to stay. i had no friends and family he turned me against the only people that loved me. He said it was only the 2 of us and we would conquer the world together. During these 4 years i didnt work since i got everything my heart dreamed and he said i didnt have to work. He didnt want to see my working hard busting my ass from 9-5 everyday. But why why why what could i do to escape the grips of this life that is cold and lonely now. All i have is me and no one else is was time to do something what i have no idea, but all i knew it was time to get the hell out of dodge quick fast and in a hurry........

The Chiefs confirmed Monday that they had run out of patience with his off-the-field problems and released Johnson the day he was due to come back from his second suspension in a year.
Johnson, who turns 30 on Nov. 19, was just 75 yards away from breaking Priest Holmes' team rushing record.
The decision by the Chiefs (1-7) was not a surprise.
"A part of him is excited and a part of him is very regretful," Johnson's agent, Peter Schaffer, told The Associated Press. "There's a lot of feelings going on right now. It's analogous to breaking up with a girlfriend. Maybe you saw it coming, but it still hurts when it happens."
On Oct. 25, in what turned out to be his final episode with the Chiefs, he posted on his Twitter account several insults to fans, questioned coach Todd Haley's credentials and used a gay slur.
He repeated the slur the next day to reporters and was suspended for two weeks. At Schaffer's urging, the Chiefs cut the financial penalty in half, saving him about $315,000.
Johnson was the subject of an online petition last week calling on the Chiefs not to let him break the team rushing record. He was never a fan favorite and his apology for the online comments came almost exactly one year after issuing a similar apology for alleged incidents involving women in Kansas City nightclubs.
Johnson was later sentenced to two years' probation after pleading guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace. One woman accused him of throwing a drink on her and another said he had pushed her head at a Kansas City night spot.
A judge suspended the sentence and said he would remove the guilty plea from the public record if Johnson has no further legal problems during probation.

A very scary weekend in Miami indeed...one that will give me nightmares for the next few days. But unlike my previous frightening dreams, I will be awaiting these nightmares with great anticipation. It was a great Halloween weekend in Miami.
It started off with the Kick-off party with Jensen Atwood aka Wade of Noah's Arc. The Vault Miami (www.thevaultmiami.com) is definitely doing big things by bringing in a highly recognized celebrity. The Vault had several out of town visitors from D.C. and ATL who flew into Miami for this once in a lifetime opportunity to party with Jensen. And the Vault didn't disappoint. Saturday night was "All About Jensen". From the photo ops to the autogragh signing to a raffle for dinner with Jensen, Saturday was a night to remember. The Vault also provided all its patrons a FREE shotglass as a thank-you for partying with them this weekend. I had a chance to speak with Jensen briefly on Friday and I was kind of thrown back. I must admit I have NEVER watched Noah's Arc series or movie. I really didn't know what to expect from him and the coonversation. But I was pleasantly surprised by how approachable he was when dealing with his fans. Even while his agent/manager and bodyguard stood by, he was still super cool and friendly. Not cocky or superficial, but his demeanor was like a friend you haven't seen in a very long time. Super nice guy would be my overall impression of Jensen.
During the Q&A session with Nic Nac at the Vault on Sunday, Jensen answered questions about his experience working with Halle Berry in "Eyes Were Watching God" to his most recent project, a music video. Jensen has done several projects and I am sure we will see great things from him in the future.
The bussel of Miami has got me wooped from the partying on South Beach and Lincoln Road, to the over the top party at Vault. Time to take a break and get ready for Thanksgiving. More pictures of Jensen and the weekend will be coming. I do apologize for the smokiness of some of the pictures. I was very close to the smoke machine in alot fo them. Take care folks. More King to come.
