Worldwide trip is a bid to become the first gay pilot to circumnavigate the globe flying a DC-3

DJ Doran, publisher and seasoned aviator, announced today the launch of PrideFlight2018 (prideflight2018.com). In the spring of 2018, Doran will attempt to become the first openly gay pilot to circumnavigate the globe on a goodwill mission supporting LGBTQ communities, groups and organizations worldwide.

Doran and his crew will be flying a WWII-era DC-3, fully restored to modern standards.

“I chose the DC-3 for its superior airframe and reliability,” says Doran. “The DC-3 revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s with its range of 1,500 miles. The airplane has long had a reputation of being rugged and reliable, which makes it the perfect plane for such a mission.”

The plane will be transported from Mexico to California, where it will undergo the first phase of restoration and remain for the winter before making its way to Indianapolis in the spring of 2016.

The mission will depar…

A new app based in Real Life Interactions (RFL) not photos

What if I’d just given him my number? What if I hadn’t scurried off with my tail between my legs? What if I had just smiled instead of looking away?

“What ifs” are a thing of the past, because now, there’s an app for that, it called RedPost (Available for download on iTunes coming soon to Android).  RedPost gives you a second chance at making a first impression. RedPost is the fix for anyone who has ever tried to find a way to “Kismeet” Mr. Right.


Picture this: You’re stopped at a traffic light, scanning the street, when a god pulls up alongside you. He’s exactly your type, and unbelievably, you make eye contact, smile at each other and just as you muster up the nerve to say something… the light turns green, he turns right, you can’t make the turn and what was destined to be a great love affair is over before it starts. BRP (Before RedPost), that would have been the end of the conversation. ARP (After RedPost) LOVE is still pos…
