Florida's Best Clothing Optional Gay Men's Resorts

Life in the tropics is all about beating the heat. And what better way cool off than to hang out poolside without clothing? Florida has dozens of clothing optional resorts, but which ones are the best? Here's the Mark's List take on the 5 best (in no particular order).
 
In Key West check out New Orleans House and Island House. New Orleans House is located on Duval Street, right in the middle of all of the action. You can count on a great time poolside or in Key West's biggest Gay nightclub, Bourbon Street Pub. Island House is located on a quieter side street and offers amazing rooms, many of them opening onto the pool and patio. There's also an amazing pool side cafe serving up some of the best food (and libations) on the Island. In Fort Lauderdale, we suggest you get your Gay clothing optional groove on at The Grand Resort and Spa, which offers an upscale atmosphere with amenities that include spa services, poolside cabana bars and plenty of tanning lotion to keep your booty from burning. In Central Florida you can head out into the woods and catch some all over rays at the Sawmill Camping Resort. Sawmill offers cabins and plenty of places to park RVs or pitch tents. There's also a large heated pool, a dance hall, restaurant, several themed bars and plenty of trails to go "hiking" on.

Betty Who Releases Music Video For 'Between You & Me'

Following the release of her forthcoming third album’s first single, “Between You & Me,” pop singer/songwriter Betty Who returns with a music video for the acoustic-powered track. 

In the video, Betty plays both characters who find themselves navigating a powerful attraction. Of the filming experience, Betty says: “The video was a trip to film because, while playing against myself, I basically have to film the video twice. I never know how it’s going to turn out because as we’re filming it seems so high-concept but when I saw the final product I was so shocked. I can’t believe how bad I wanted me to end up with myself!”

Eric Leonardos Talks Life After ‘Finding Prince Charming’

The final episode of Finding Prince Charming began with bachelor Robert telling the remaining three suitors, Brandon, Eric and Dillon, that while in college he became an escort for many years. Looking back I still haven’t figured out why Robert kept Dillon around for so long. Dillon even realized that his connection with Robert wasn’t very strong, which ultimately led to his departure. 

For the last few weeks leading up to the finale the chemistry between Brandon and Robert was palpable. I thought for sure he would be the one Robert picked, but I was wrong as Robert picked Eric. We caught up with Eric Leonardos to talk about his time on Finding Prince Charming and what's ahead for him. Read the full interview: Eric Leonardos Talks Life After ‘Finding Prince Charming’

Adult Film Star Rocco Steele Tackles HIV Stigma

Although research and support for the HIV/AIDS community has come a long way since the 80s and 90s, a great deal of ignorance and stigma still exists—even within the gay community. With celebrities such as Charlie Sheen and Danny Pintauro (Who’s the Boss?) recently bringing HIV/AIDS into the entertainment headlines, perhaps now is the perfect time for a new, more enlightened conversation on the subject.

Mark’s List spoke with adult film star Rocco Steele, who has experienced his fair share of ups and downs with addiction and living with HIV.  He has, however, used these personal experiences as a catalyst to promote HIV awareness and education.
