Life’s road takes me on many Fabulous Adventures. I love sharing them and will do so here. Traveling is a big part of my life (and blog) and always has been. From Las Vegas to Nashville to Manhattan, few roads have yet to see my feet.

But I did feel like popping one out on the quick-quick just to catch up for hot minute. Because it has been just that – a hot minute since I’ve been on here! From fierce reality TV to future travel plans and beyond. What’s happening in today’s gay culture, primarily mine?! Here goes…

Top Trends 2014 – My Year in Rewind

2014

With the increasing flow of news media today there’s many places you can find a wide range of statistically speaking official charts of top stories of 2014. I love that reflection we take of the year past and hopeful optimism of the one to come. Here at my domain I chose to remember those moments in my own gay pop culture lexicon and personal life to chart as the top moments that gave me life in 2014. And away we went…

Steven MichaelIt’s been almost a week since we have all returned from Texas. Well, of course I’m speaking of my fellow contestants from the Mr. Gay USofA contest this past week in San Antonio. 24 amazing men, proud and strong, stood among their peers and gave it their all in categories of Interview, Talent and the wide wild world of Clubwear. I was among these hungry men coming to claim what was ours always giving it one hell of a shot in the process! In the end there were 23 winners and 1 Ultimate Grand Supreme. Here’s the entire tale…

Exploring the Extreme Build of Scott Cullens

Scott CullensTo see Scott Cullens walk by you can’t help but notice him. Some people have it and some people don’t. Master Cullens has it. He works very hard in perfecting his image and is not afraid of telling or showing you how it is. I’ve spoken with Scott here on my domain before but as the world turns so does his whirlwind of happenings. In the last interview we spoke of his fitness regiment, budding business ventures personal life and what it’s like to be him.  This round we catch up on his many modeling gigs in fabulous locales, sleeping in the nude, an honest take on his new reality show Extreme Builds and how he is now the self-professed “Lube King.” Take it off, err, away… Scott! And THANKS to the photographers who shared the images!

The Best Time Las Vegas Can Offer

Las VegasWhen we arrived last Saturday afternoon to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas I was truly elated! I know Jacques was happy to get out of town for a few days and it’s always good for us to have this great escape. The Cosmopolitan is our home away from home when in Sin City. It is special to us and we feel proud to say we stay there. This trip was no exception. And like a friend on Facebook said in response to one of my “look at me I’m in Vegas” posts, what happens in Vegas is shared on my Facebook wall. Here’s what you missed…

Why I Want To Become Mr. E.O.Y. 2014

Why I Want To Become Mr. E.O.Y. 2014 – An Open Letter

Steven MichaelI’ve decided to enter the National Mr. Entertainer of the Year 2014 contest because I believe it’s the best system overall for me as a professional performer to give who I truly am each and every time I step on the stage. I have big plans for my future as a representative of the E.O.Y. system because let’s face it, win lose draw, we involved are all representing Entertainer of the Year, crown or not. It’s where I belong. There are other choices but when given the logistics, politics and bigger picture, here is where I set my determined roots for the road ahead.
