A Semana: The Gay Kiss Controversy, New Clubs, Cyndi Lauper, VMan, And Fashion Week

After much controversy in the past few weeks, it was confirmed that the gay kiss which was supposed to air at the last episode of soap Duas Caras was not even taped as a back up plan. This is the second time Globo axed a kiss between two men on the final episode of a soap. The first time was back in 2005 on the soap America.

Two new gay nightclubs are opening in São Paulo right after Pride: Just will be a smaller venue for 400 people, while Shoock Disco Lounge will be more like the recently shut down Bubu, with the capacity for 1,200 people. Both clubs open Friday of next week.

The smoke ban in Rio starts this Saturday. After that, smoking will no longer be allowed on closed spaces. I hope the ban is effective and that the same measure is adopted in São Paulo immediately.

I Am Addicted To Go-go Dancers

I have just come to the sad realization that I am addicted to go-go boys (I also have a thing for male strippers but have not had a chance to make a video of that yet).

The clip above was shot at The Week on Saturday night when Offer Nissim started spinning. The boys were on fire under the diamond-studded ceiling of the club.

I am starting to wonder what he looks like in clothes as opposed to underwear and swimsuits. I have heard that OUT has shot him recently, and am curious to see the pictures.
