Real Life Hunk of the Month April: Devon Spence


Devon Spence (Florida, 1989) was the 2013 January's Hunk of the Month in my blog. His post was one of the most viewed of that year. After more than one year, I want to highlight him again.

Yes, I admit, I have a fondness for him. He is not only handsome outside but especially inside. I like all he does, as dancer, model, actor and jewels designer. He is a lover of life and spreads his vitality.

My admiration and support for him!

Spain is the First Country Accepting Homosexuality


Spain is the nation tops a list of 40 countries most accepting of homosexuality, according to a Pew Research Center's Global Views on Morality poll.

Catholic Spain came out on top with only 6% saying they found homosexuality to be morally unacceptable while 55% said it was acceptable and another 38% said it was not an issue of morality.

Germans were the next most approving despite not yet allowing same-sex couples to marry, with only 8% saying homosexuality was morally unacceptable while 51% said it was acceptable and 38% said it was not a moral issue.

French and Czech people tied in disapproving of homosexuality for moral reasons with 14% disapproving in both countries. The numbers for moral disapproval were 15% in Canada, 17% in Britain and 18% in Australia.

Americans were the 12th least nationality to disapprove morally of homosexuality with 37% saying they disapproved, only 25% saying it was acceptable and 35% saying it was not a moral issue.

In the Palestinian territories 94% disapproved but in Israel 43% disapproved compared to 27% who approved and 25% saying it was not a moral issues, showing a stark difference of views among the two neighbors.

The results were less optimistic in nations like Ghana and Russia, where 98 percent and 72 percent of participants deemed homosexuality morally unacceptable, respectively.

#WeAreAllUVa


Students at the University of Virginia have started a photo campaign #WeAreAllUVa hoping to show togetherness and acceptance.

One of the campaign’s creators said: "Diversity includes the differences we can’t see. It’s more than race and ethnicity. Diversity is meant to be an inclusive concept; the point of challenging it is that it can be a very polarizing conversation".

One student who took up the challenge was Parker Camp, a swimmer, who publicly came out as gay last year. He asked four other teammates to join him for the photo which reads: 2 of us are gay, the other 3 don’t care.
