The Event

My friends, August 1st, 2014

Wow - talk about wonderful, the 2014 A Celebration of Friends weekend has just ended with men attending from over thirty-five different states and England, Mexico, Colombia, Canada, Taiwan, Denmark and Spain.  Our oldest attendee was 90 years young from Sacramento California while our youngest was 24 years old from Clearwater Florida.  One thing that always can be say about the Celebration, "It only attracts the sexiest of men".  Don't believe me?  Check out all the pics on the web and Facebook sites... and remember there's more coming.  If you have pics taken at the ACOF weekend and want to get them posted on the website, please send the to me

Kudos to The Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld for going out of their way and making us feel right at home.  With our own private area and pool, we were able to relax and enjoy each other the way we were never able to before.

Thank you to all my volunteers who work so hard behind the scenes to make things happen.  Without you, there'd be no Celebrations.

We had many entries in our Toga and Sexy Senior Speedo contests. So many beautiful men spent so much time making so many beautiful costumes or lack thereof....

The only women present sure looked, dressed and sounded like Cher, Lady Gaga and Tina Turner. It was the first time I ever saw gay men happily shove dollar bills into the costumes of scantly clad females, go figure...

Now, I would love to settle on the location and dates for future ACOF weekends.  We've been invited to move out west and encouraged to have more Celebrations in different parts of the country.  One thing I've learned over the past thirteen Celebrations is that it really doesn't matter what I want; what's important is what YOU want.  YOU are the most important part of each Celebration and we’re going to build all future Celebrations around YOU.  This is your chance to let us know what you think:
