2013 unwrapped like a condom out of his package step by step part 1 ;o)

Paul-Walker-paul-walker-1025355_1502_1920A few more days before 2013 is over and we will celebrate the new year. 2013 was a big year in terms of big steps towards equality, celebs coming out and worldwide coverage for gay events. Like every year 2013 had also it’s ups and downs, losing some famous faces like Paul Walker and Nelson Mandela (May they all Rest In Peace) but also passing more equality bills for same-sex marriages in the world than in any other year before!!!

2013 is really a year where the LGBT community has been very in everybody’s face in a good and in a bad way. The anti-gay laws in Russia, Uganda and India, where only being who you are can get you in jail or even get killed and Australia, where same-sex marriage rights were withdrawn again are some of the unfortunate events. But off course let us look to the bright side in life and there has happened a lot of good things too. Like many countries and states passing the bill for Equal marriage for same-sex couples. Public figures like artists, actors and sports people did their coming out to show the world that they are like everybody else (except they play for their own team yummy). Even the straight community allied for us and showed a great support to get more respect and acceptance for the LGBT community.

What better way than to sum up what happened in 2013 on LGBT front to see what kind of year we had and because there has been a lot happening we will do this in two parts.

fotoWhat did the year 2013 meant for me personally and especially for my blog? Well the biggest change in my life was that I started writing this blog and keeping up a FB and twitter account for PINK IN OUR LIVES. I didn’t know how the response would turn out, but by getting more than 2000 followers on facebook, twitter, tumblr and on my blog I was overwhelmed. Thank you all and I love putting my time and good sense in it for you all. I tried to keep my blog and other social media about the positive and sexy things in our PINK life, because there is enough bad news in the world. I want to show a variety and I am gonna try in 2014 to do even more and better.

HAVE A GREAT PINK 2014 and check out part 2 before the end of the year!!!

Big kiss,
