KYOTO RULESKYOTO, JAPAN – Out There

KYOTO RULESKYOTO, JAPAN – Out There | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Kyoto conjures up a thousand images – the ancient and imperial Japanese capital until 1868, it was seen by many (and to some degree is still lauded) as a perfect city, a showcase for all of Japan’s best achievements, a dream of humankind – the link that ties together heaven and earth. It has all the ideal hallmarks – over a millennium of civilization – timeless, modern, serene, sophisticated – a city that’s ultimately spiritual, but incredibly human, signifying all there is to love about life.

Why You Should Visit These Winter Events and Festivals in Spain

Why You Should Visit These Winter Events and Festivals in Spain | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Spain is a great summertime destination but that doesn’t necessarily mean it slows down after all the summer fun. In the colder months there’s a wide variety of things going on including celebrating pride in the winter, lots of holiday festivals and parties and plenty of parades, both traditional and gay. With so much happening, Spain is definitely a year-round destination and may even be better to visit in the winter to avoid the heat and the higher summer prices. A trip around any one of these events is sure to be worth your while.
