PUERTO ROMANTICA

THE SEXY MEXICAN RESORT OF PUERTO VALLARTA HAS LONG BEEN A SIMMERING HOMO HOT SPOT BUT, REPORTS MARC ANDREWS, THIS TOWN TURNS PARTY BOYS INTO LOVER BOYS!

GLOBAL PARTIES

IN THE US there are a handful of regional locations that regularly attract gay visitors aiming to vacation (or “vacay”) with other gay men. With a laidback approach to life, love and casual sex, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Springs, Fire Island and Provincetown are easily the most frequented by LGBT+ guests.

But there’s another town in North America, not in the USA, that may lay claim to being the Americas’ answer to Mykonos or Sitges. Yes, the quaint, and very queer, Mexican resort of Puerto Vallarta.

With a population of less than a quarter-of-amillion, it’s located in the Jalisco region of western Mexico, not far from the cultural heart of Mexico, Guadalajara, the home of mariachi music. It’s just a couple of hour’s flight from LA, so around the peak period of New Year’s Eve, when the temperature is still a blissful 29C degrees during the day, there’s suddenly a massive influx of gringos, with big ticket events such as the White Party and other circuit events competing for the pink peso.

About DNA Magazine

This month’s issue is all about where to find the best gay parties in the world in 2018. We reveal the best places to get your jam on and your rocks off! Our team of roving reporters file stories from Madrid and Barcelona, Malta and Mykonos, Reykjavik, Brighton and London, from Puerto Vallarta to Miami, Palm Springs and Toronto, Koh Samui, Hong Kong and Shibuya. And do we have sexy pics of hot party boys shaking their junk? Of course… including hunky Frank Carter’s Diary Of A Circuit Boy! Wanna know what goes down at Tropical Fruits, the legendary New Year party on the New South Wales central coast? Jack Ladd’s smutty story reveals everything! Wondering what to wear to Sydney’s Mardi Gras? Check out our less-is-more costume guide! Speaking of unusual outfits… we have Aussie comedian Rhys Nicholson in a painted-on bodysuit and wedged into a rubbish bin. The hilarious stand-up tells us all about his fascinating childhood and spills the beans on some fellow comics, including Joel Creasey! UK X-Factor star Peyton launches his first soul album and tells us all about his X-Factor issues! Meanwhile, rock star Phil Jamieson of Grinspoon tells us about his unexpected career swing into musical theatre in Green Day’s American Idiot. We all love the Oscars, but do they love us back? We take a look at when the Academy Awards rewards gay-themed films and gay actors and when they snub us. It’s a great retrospective story that suggests the first gay Hollywood screen kiss may have happened as early as 1928! Let’s talk art. In our feature, Cock And Awe we explore the photographic ethos of Venfield8, which is sexy and thought-provoking. Photographer Stas Vokman shoots former DNA cover model Vladimir Momotov in a beautiful Spanish-inspired story, Take A Bow. Plus, all our usual regular features including music, theatre and book reviews, Month In A Minute, Burnttoast and The Deplorables, and Dear Diva solves your big gay problems! Enjoy!
