First-of-Its-Kind Wedding in Cuba – Gay Man Weds Transsexual Woman

First-of-Its-Kind Wedding in Cuba – Gay Man Weds Transsexual Woman

In honor or in scorn of Fidel Castro’s 85th birthday, depending on who you ask, a gay man and a transsexual woman wed in a first-of-its-kind wedding yesterday.  Though gay marriage is not allowed in Cuba the government sanctioned wedding was seen by many gay Cuban’s as a step out of the shadows.

The bride now known as Wendy was Alexis before a state paid sex-change operation.  The fact that Alexis became a woman is why the couple was allowed to marry.  Transgender surgery which is very costly is covered under the island nation’s universal healthcare system.

The most high profile gay advocate is, Mariela Castro, daughter of current President Raul Castro – who hails the marriage as a step in the right direction. 

The groom, Ignacio Estrada, was not that kind toward Cuban policy.

He noted that the couple got married on Fidel Castro’s 85th birthday to “remind him of the atrocities he committed against the Cuban gay community, above all in the 1960’s.”

Becoming Soara the Sexplorer by Dr. Charley Ferrer

Have you ever wanted to be an actress? Remember the countless hours you spent as a child pretending and allowing your imagination to run amok? Well here’s your chance to recapture that same sense of adventure and exuberance you thrived upon years ago. Becoming Soara the Sexplorer is easier than you might think and more deliciously erotic than having your lover turn into a giant piece of chocolate.

First, put on your sexiest outfit or a piece a jewelry that will become your talisman magically transforming you into Soara the Sexplorer. Next, schedule a few hours to explore your lover in various ways. Become the sensual scientist, an anthropologist, as you discover all the hidden erogenous zones on his body. Each person has at least a baker’s dozen. Just imagine where his could be? And what about yours?

Experiment until you discover the type of touch that will awaken those erogenous zones. Perhaps it’s a combination of touch and sound. Does hearing your lover tell you what he plans to do to you right before he does it make it more erotic for you? Do you enjoy feeling like a naughty school girl as you touch and taste your lover making him moan until he can’t stand anymore and takes control? Or maybe, you’d prefer to be in control and teach him who the boss is and instruct him on his job requirements. The possibilities are endless. The limitations only those you impose.

As if the Gathering of Juggalos isn’t crazy enough Charlie Sheen had to add to the insanity with his insanity.  Last night he was part of the Insane Clown Posse’s music festival and partied with the posse’s fans the Juggalos.

One of the problem with Juggalos is they like to throw things and that was no different when Carlos Estevez, aka Charlie Sheen, took to the stage.  Nonetheless, Sheen won the crown, check out the video.

He of course was not as popular as porn king’s Ron Jeremy’s lingerie contest or rock star wrestling matches but he didn’t have to be escorted out like Tila Tequila did last year.

Who knew that Cave-in-Rock, Illinois could be so interesting or that Charlie Sheen liked hanging out there.

In 1930 the first FIFA World Cup took place in Uruguay since the country was celebrating the centenary of its first constitution and the team had just won the ’28 Summer Olympics.  It played against Argentina defeating them 4-2, but it was a bitter rivalry with the two teams not even being able to agree on which ball to use so they ended up using one from each country.

Now both countries are joining forces and making a historic bid to co-host the World Cup in 2030 which would be the 100th Anniversary of the championship.  They hope of course to be competing in the games but more importantly they want the finals played where they started.  They will face stiff competition from a 10-Asian nation bid and other European countries that would like to host the historic anniversary game.

Nonetheless, the countries moved forward with their bid by forming a bilateral commission that will include Argentine President Cristina Fernandez and Uruguay President Jose Mujica.
