Last week we were looking at few camping spots up in Big Sur, we heard from friends that just driving up the Pacific Coast High was worth the trip. We ended up staying three nights, sleeping under the redwoods and sharing good times with our new friends, Wowie and Rita. Felt good being away from everyone and everything, no better way to refresh.
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.
Wine country is experiencing an increase in its LGBT community as people escape big cities like San Francisco, adult LGBT natives return after venturing out into the world, and a new generation of queers who were born and raised there decide to stay.
I recently had the unique opportunity to interview Ron Oden in the coffee shop at the new and hip ARRIVE Boutique Hotel. Ron Olden has lived in Palm Springs for over 25 years and served as the first openly gay, African-American mayor of Palm Springs (2003 – 2007) and in the US. This spirited man, with a voice that commands attention, gave us a snapshot into what makes this city one of the most popular and most famous resort communities in the world, welcoming thousands of visitors and snowbirds every year.
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.
South Floridians and gay friends of Ramona Singer, I give you the Berkshires! Setting: a patchwork of small towns in rural western Massachusetts all connected by high hills. Just two and a half hours from New York City, the area borders New York on the west and Connecticut and Vermont to the south and north, respectively.
Dallas' Oak Lawn neighborhood is in a serious party mood.
Matt Skallerud's insight:
The annual Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade is making its way through the area to support and celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Hundreds of revelers turned out for Sunday afternoon's parade, which is snaking its way along Cedar Springs Road before it concludes at Reverchon Park.
Striker Sports Bar is officially Toronto's only gay sports bar. The idea came to Oliver Douglas and Vince Silva after trying to watch a major hockey game at a bar on Church Street and having a lot of trouble in doing so. It wasn't long after that together wit
Marriott International (NASDAQ:MAR) was recently honored as the first international hotel brand in Colombia to pass the Colombian LGBT Chamber of Commerce’s six month review process. The Colombian chamber awarded the most “Friendly Biz” certification to Marriott for its customer protocols when serving LGBT guests. Last month, the Argentina Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (CCGLAR) has recognized Marriott as the most LGBT Friendly Hotel Company.
Matt Skallerud's insight:
Marriott International has a strong presence in the LGBT community and a longstanding strategic partnership with The Human Rights Campaign (HRC). HRC is the largest civil rights organization in America that advocates for equal LGBT rights through research and education. Marriott International is extremely proud that it has continuously earned a 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index.
