The Summer Olympics are closing in on us and Brazil has a new visa waiver program to share! Normally, for Americans to able to travel to Brazil they must obtain a travel visa prior to departure, and the process can be tedious to say the least. Thankfully, this summer Brazil is waiving their visa requirements for Americans attending the Summer Olympics.
The 2016 Summer Olympic Games are being held in Rio de Janiero from August 5-21. Brazil’s new visa waiver program is scheduled to begin on June 1, easing the travel to Brazil for millions of visitors. Not only will this program benefit those coming from the United States, it will ease the travel for citizens coming from Canada, Australia, and Japan as well. Although this is great news for anyone looking to travel to Brazil for the Olympics, there is a sad caveat, the program will end on September 18. From that day forward the old visa requirements will be in place.

Hilton Worldwide is undergoing a readdress. Currently they are aiming to attract guests that are seeking affordable lodging but who also maintain a “millennial mindset” and a “desire for human connection.”
The chain predicts that the average cost per night for a room will range between $90 to $100. With affordable pricing and vibrant colors throughout the hotel it is clear who their target demographic is.
Think the connectedness of an upscale hostel with the design of American ingenuity, Tru by Hilton is sure to please the consumers in cities such as Atlanta, Houston and Chicago who have already gotten on board.
Alexandra Jaritz, global head of Try by Hilton said to USA Today, “guests are very interested in having a great degree of flexibility. The idea of having a customized experience is very important to them.” Out of this sentiment Tru by Hilton aims to provide their guests with “local snacks and drinks, including single-serving beer and wine…and a build-your-own breakfast station that will be available throughout the day.”
Jaden Smith began 2016 posing in a gender bending fashion campaign for Louis Vuitton, but now the 17-year-old star is back at it on the pages of Vogue Korea.
In an Instagram sneak peek of the Vogue spread, Jaden poses shirtless with a black skirt, blue nail polish, and a big red flower behind his ear.
Jaden’s not the only male celebrity rocking gender neutral looks. Stars from Jared Leto to Kid Cudi have all donned skirts and dresses in recent years, as well as some of fashion’s biggest names, including Kanye West and Marc Jacobs.
At Tuesday’s Makers Conference in Palos Verdes, California, Caitlyn Jenner shared the previously unknown history of her first attempt to transition during the 1980s.
Revealed in a video that aired at the conference, the 66-year-old reality star and former Olympian told the audience, “I started on hormones. I was a good 36B. I loved them, I thought this was fabulous.”
Jenner’s mission, she said, was to transition before the age of 40. But, at the age of 39, she “just couldn’t go any further.”
Months later, she met ex-wife Kris Kardashian.
“I was very honest with her. I had to be, I was a 36B. Everything’s really heading in the right direction, and I made this decision to move on with my life, Kris and I together with this family,” Jenner said.
Jenner went on, “I actually had my boobs removed. I never told anyone that.”

It’s an afternoon of pure bliss that happens deep in the secluded heart of the waterways that are part the majestic black and red mangroves of bucolic and sparsely populated Sugarloaf Key. The only sounds on this journey are the steady, reliable swoosh of the paddle as it dives into the water on both sides of your board propelling you along at a graceful, steady clip. Your friends for the day are a likeminded band of adventurers along with sting rays, barracuda, grouper, nurse sharks, jellyfish, and other creatures of the sea. There’s literally nothing standing between you and nature—not even a swimsuit. That’s because this is Nomadic SUP, a gay-owned tour operator in Key West whose handsome and strapping owner, Cody White, leads daily, clothing-optional standup paddleboard tours through the Mangroves. We took a tour with White and later sat down with him to talk about leading gay men and women on the perfect Key West adventure—sans clothing.
