(GayWebSource.com) Orlando, FL 1/1/2017

Indie gay Orlando singer/songwriter Craymo releases an inspirational new music video for the re-release single of his reggae pop song One Love One World (We Are One). One Love One World is a heartfelt song promoting world peace, equality, love, tolerance, brotherhood and human rights.

With all of the recent incidents of terrorism, mass shootings and senseless killing of innocent people and children, Craymo wants to start 2016 with a message and vision of love for the world. The music video begins with children in Pang Liu Village in China who were taught English using One Love One World as a learning aid.

It is a thought provoking message of the power of a song to change people’s lives for the better. Craymo says “let’s all put our hands together to help make this world a better place for all of us.”

The music video is co-directed by Craymo along with Nathan McMahan of August Moon Productions. The Director of Photography is Brent Reynolds, also of August Moon Productions and was edited by Jason Barnes, all local central Florida film talents. One Love One World (We Are One) is co-written by Craig Stephen Raymo and Brandon Jarrett of Moho Productions. The song is produced by Brandon Jarrett.

One Love One World (We Are One) world premiere music video is released January 1, 2016 on YouTube and all social media.

One Love One World is from Craymo’s CD Cosmos available on iTunes

West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio places travel ban on city-funded trips to Mississippi

(GayWebSource.com – West Palm Beach, Florida) — In the wake of Mississippi’s enactment of HB 1523, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio became the first mayor in Florida — and the second in the nation after Seattle Mayor Ed Murray — to place a travel ban on city-funded trips to Mississippi.

HB 1523, which was signed into law yesterday by Mississippi’s Republican Governor, Phil Bryant, allows people with religious objections to deny services to lesbian and gays and permits employers to use religious beliefs as justification in determining workplace policies.

“For more than two decades, West Palm Beach has been in the forefront, protecting the civil rights and ensuring equality for the LGBT community,” said Muoio. “Until the discriminatory laws in Mississippi and North Carolina are repealed, West Palm Beach taxpayers will not subsidize legally-sanctioned discrimination against LGBT people.”

On March 28, Muoio became the second mayor in the nation — after San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee – to impose a similar ban on travel to North Carolina following the enactment of another comprehensive anti-LGBT law in that state.

Mayor Muoio implemented the two travel bans at the request of the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council (PBCHRC), a local civil rights organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.  Since 1990, PBCHRC has been responsible for the enactment of more than 100 local laws and policies which prohibit discrimination against the LGBT community.

“Once again, Mayor Muoio has taken steps to ensure that taxpayers dollars will not be spent in places that discriminate against LGBT Americans,” said retired judge Rand Hoch, PBCHRC President and Founder.  “We commend Mayor Muoio for putting her strong beliefs against bigotry into action by prohibiting taxpayer dollars being used in both Mississippi and North Carolina.”

Last year, Muoio was one of a handful of mayors who announced a similar travel ban to the state of Indiana, following the

wake of Indiana’s passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act,

As the result of pressure placed on Indiana by civic leaders, businesses, and numerous other entities, the Indiana Legislature promptly amended the Religious Freedom Restoration Act,by specifying that the law could not be used as a legal defense to discriminate against patrons based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Following Muoio’s announcement this morning, travel bans to Mississippi have been implemented by the governors of Minnesota, New York, Vermont and Washington as well as the mayors of.San Francisco and Seattle

Newcastle Pride Marks Landmark Anniversary With Belinda, B*witched And More

B*Witched

Newcastle Pride, which attracted more than 65,000 visitors in 2014, will return to the city’s Town Moor, from Friday July 17 to Sunday July 19, with a One Love theme marking the anniversary of the first Pride marches.

This year’s event, organised annually by charity, Northern Pride, will feature headline performances by platinum-selling American singer Belinda Carlisle and chart-topping Irish girlband B*Witched, with a host of other top acts appearing throughout the weekend.

Belinda Carlisle

This includes X Factor finalists Lucy Spraggan, Kitty Brucknell and Joseph Whelan, as well as actress and singer Heather Peace, who most recently starred in BBC drama Waterloo Road.

A carnival-style parade, which last year attracted more than 7000 participants, will run from Newcastle Civic Centre to the Town Moor on Saturday July 18, with a special candlelight vigil closing the festival on Sunday July 19.

A host of food outlets, stalls and themed zones, including a family and youth area, cabaret tent, Steve Paske Health Zone and women’s zone, will be open at the Town Moor throughout the three-day festival, with additional events also taking place in pubs and clubs around Newcastle’s Pink Triangle.

Mark Nichols, Chair of Northern Pride, said: “Newcastle Pride 2014 was a huge success, attracting a record number of visitors and boosting the city’s economy by more than £7.5m.

“This year we’re sticking with the extended three day format and promoting acceptance, inclusion and One Love in honour of the original Pride marches 45 years ago.

“We hope that our bumper line-up will appeal to visitors of all ages and bring thousands to Newcastle city centre for three days of fun and live entertainment.”

Newcastle Pride 2015 is free to attend, though a limited number of Gold Circle and VIP tickets are also available. These are priced from £10 and £25 respectively and include a host of benefits such as prime viewing for live music, private toilets and faster bar access.

A series of satellite events, including a dance performance, book exhibition and film screenings is also being planned throughout July and August, with full details still to be announced.
