If you never had the urge to go to Wilton Manor’s own Galanga well you will now!  If you ever felt intimidated by the menu, I can give you some selections that will make you want to go back time and time again.  I literally, know people that eat there at least four times a week. 

I had a flavorful Chicken Vegetable Soup, simple, clean, just salty enough for flavor and the vegetables were firm and at the right texture.  If they do not have it, if you like the Thai soup Tom Kha it’s only $5 and has Thai herbs, coconut milk, vegetable broth and was told it was spicy and good.  If vegetables are more your scene for an appetizer why not try the Edamame which is boiled fresh soy beans for only $5 that are lightly salted.   
 
I was told about this Steak Salad, which is grilled New York Strip steak, lemon grass, lime juice, grape tomatoes, and a bed of spicy chili sauce for only $8.  I, personally, don’t like spicy and they made it mild for me and I wanted to lick the plate.  If you are in the mood for sushi and want a little bit of everything, they have the Roll Combination Plate which has half a California Roll, half Salmon Skin Roll, and half a Spicy Tuna Roll for only $12 and is freshly made by the Sushi Chefs of the restaurant.  If you don’t think you will like the Salmon Skin—change it out when ordering.  It apparently tastes exactly what it sounds it would taste like.  Another suggestion for the Main Course would be the Panang Curry Chicken, but with all the Curry dishes you have choices of meats and types of curry thereby giving you the creativity you want.  With Panang Curry Chicken it has a thickened curry sauce, herbs, coconut milk, Kaffir Limes, and ground peanuts all for $15 and is served in the largest single-serving bowl I’ve ever seen. 
 
I would definitely say one of the best assets that Galanga has, besides the amazing ambiance and outside patio, would be the wait staff—they alone can make you want to come back week after week.

Olympic Standout Adam Rippon Talks Finding His Gay Power

Adam Rippon’s mere existence as a brazenly gay global inspiration with a tongue as sharp as the blades on his skates is notable. Writer Peter Moskowitz recently celebrated Rippon in a piece for Splinter titled “The Faggy Magic of Adam Rippon.” And at a Stars on Ice show in Detroit, Michigan, in April, Rippon garnered by far the most enthusiastic response, winning applause from tween girls, a squadron of proud queers, and suburban moms, alike. Reese Witherspoon loves him. So does Elmo. And like any good mother, Sally Field tried to set him up with her gay son.

An impressive 19.2% plan to invest their grad cash, and a near equal number, 18.7%, said they’ll pay down student loans with the money. That’s a great start.

Designer Andrew Christian Talks Sex, Power and Freedom

Highlighting a plethora of rock-hard bodied Andrew Christian Trophy Boys in various stages of undress, including fan-favorites AradCory and Topher, popular underwear designer Andrew Christian’s provocative, sexually-charged book of fantasy, innuendo and desire is making quite the statement. SEX = POWER = FREDOM isn’t just any adult picture display of naked men created with the sole purpose of getting you off—although it successfully delivers if that tickles your fancy. This controversial coffee table centerpiece, which boasts 200 glossy pages of in-your-face black and white images, culminates in an emotional representation of art, sex, diversity, personal expression and political freedom.

Andrew Christian, who has also made his rounds as a reality television star, spoke with Mark’s List about SEX = POWER = FREEDOM, his admiration for Madonna, the Trump administration and his upcoming book tour. Read the full interview: Designer Andrew Christian Talks Sex, Power and Freedom

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.



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.
