Our newest correspondent is a young Danish businessman who lives in Tel Aviv, Israel, drawn to that country by love. Jonas West Eilersen travels the world, including gay capitals like London, NYC and Paris and decidedly less gay countries like Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia.

Jonas is originally Scandinavian, from Denmark, where he shunned journalism school in favor of becoming a sociologist.

He spent six years acquiring his Sociology B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the University of Copenhagen, with extended stints in Sydney and Berlin during this time. After having worked as a management consultant in London, in the aviation and tourism industry, for close to five years, love brought him to Tel Aviv, Israel, where he currently resides.

Rangel soaking in the Caribbean waters surrounding San Andrés island, Colombia.

Our São Paulo-based correspondent (businessman and former model), Rangel Vilas Boas visited Colombia recently with his husband Tomás. Here’s a photo report he sent us after his trip.

On our first day on the island of San Andrés, we rented a golf cart and drove all the way around the island. There are a lot of activities you can enjoy all over, and at one point you can jump from a rock directly in the sea, very fun (see below)!
