The Wedding of Susan Stoever, and Xingxia Zhang in San Juan, Puerto Rico

by Richard Nahem

Maria Lugo (www.marialugopr.com) is as much in love with her job as the couples she assists in planning weddings are in love with each other.

A native Puerto Rican, Lugo started with a Master’s Degree in guidance and counseling. Her training led her to working in the pharmaceutical industry for 27 years, 22 of them as a director. She was fortunate enough to travel the world with her job.

Lugo gave it all up in 2006 to pursue her dream career and went back to school to train as a wedding planner. She studied at The Association of Bridal Consultants, one of the oldest leading organizations (since 1955) for wedding planners.

It’s an afternoon of pure bliss that happens deep in the secluded heart of the waterways that are part the majestic black and red mangroves of bucolic and sparsely populated Sugarloaf Key. The only sounds on this journey are the steady, reliable swoosh of the paddle as it dives into the water on both sides of your board propelling you along at a graceful, steady clip. Your friends for the day are a likeminded band of adventurers along with sting rays, barracuda, grouper, nurse sharks, jellyfish, and other creatures of the sea. There’s literally nothing standing between you and nature—not even a swimsuit. That’s because this is Nomadic SUP, a gay-owned tour operator in Key West whose handsome and strapping owner, Cody White, leads daily, clothing-optional standup paddleboard tours through the Mangroves. We took a tour with White and later sat down with him to talk about leading gay men and women on the perfect Key West adventure—sans clothing.

An official from the Vatican has denounced Ireland’s vote in favor of gay marriage by calling the referendum a “defeat for humanity.” Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who is the Vatican’s secretary of state said at a conference in Rome: “I was deeply saddened by the result…The church must take account of this reality, but in the sense that it must strengthen its commitment to evangelisation. I think that you cannot just talk of a defeat for Christian principles, but of a defeat for humanity.”

According to a new study, a daily orgasm is not only good for your health, it’s great for your health. Researchers from Harvard Medical School have found that male orgasms  actually reduce the risk of prostate cancer. After an 18-year study, researchers found that men 40-49 who ejaculated 21 or more times a month had a 22% lower occurrence of the cancer, compared to men who said they only orgasmed four-seven times a month.

Hey, we’ll trust Harvard on this one.

Vice President Joe Biden took time to write an op-ed in the Advocate to praise Ireland’s marriage referendum. President Obama (who is of Irish ancestry) hasn’t commented yet. “Last weekend, more than 1.2 million Irish voters took a courageous stand for love and family when they overwhelmingly chose marriage equality,” he wrote. “They recognized the fundamental truth that every person is entitled to dignity and respect, and that there can be no justification for the denigration or persecution of anyone because of who they love or who they are,” Biden continued.

Passengers on a flight that was diverted because of bad weather to Knoxville received an unexpected surprise, and it wasn’t the surprise layover. The pilot of the Delta flight decided to turn the miserable situation into an impromptu pizza party. “We circled in the air for a while (and) then the captain said we were diverting to Knoxville because of storms over the airport in Atlanta,” passenger Khoury Ashooh told the DailyMail. The pilot ordered pizza to the plane and had it delivered by a baggage car. It was an immediate PR boom for Detlta for an otherwise miserable day. “We are sitting on a runway stuck on a @Delta flight because of weather,” tweeted @RileyVasquez. “So they’re throwing us a pizza party!”

Cher proves that the reinvention queen can still pull off an astonishing runway-ready look in her new ad campaign with Marc Jacobs. The 69-year-old is no stranger to fashion, she’s been in ad campaigns since the 60s (can’t you tell by the face she is giving?). The photo was shot by David Sims, and shows off Jacobs’ “moody” collection inspired by Diana Vreeland’s apartment.
