Queer Women Travel Sites to Inspire Your Perfect Vacation

Queer Women Travel Sites to Inspire Your Perfect Vacation | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

My partner and I are avid travelers. As queer residents of New York City, we also often play tour guide for visiting family and friends when we’re not on the road. We encourage our guests to experience New York City beyond selfies in Times Square, including everything from outdoor movies on the historic Intrepid aircraft carrier, to New York Philharmonic concerts in the park, to food festivals in Brooklyn where you can enjoy a ramen burger and craft beer while viewing the Manhattan skyline.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

We also recommend that our queer visitors pay homage to and get wild at some of the longest standing LGBTQ bars that have played an important role in serving our community, such as Stonewall, the site of the Stonewall Riots that sparked the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the U.S., and Henrietta Hudson, the oldest brick and mortar queer women’s bar in New York City. We are also acutely aware that tourist guides fail to educate our visitors about the rich, diverse LGBTQ culture that exists beyond the bar scene, such as Voguing Balls and the largest LGBTQ fashion shows hosted at world renowned museums.

Baltimore's LGBT hub expands beyond Mount Vernon amid discussions of inclusion, competition

Baltimore's LGBT hub expands beyond Mount Vernon amid discussions of inclusion, competition | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

With the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore's decision to relocate both its office and Pride to Old Goucher, many believe the boundaries have shifted. Some of the issues at play are growing acceptance in the wider community; local LGBT leadership expanding beyond gay white men to women, people of color and the transgender community; and an up-front effort by Old Goucher to become identified as the "gayborhood."

10 things you probably didn’t know about LGBTQ San Francisco | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

If San Francisco is the gayest city on earth, that probably makes it the gayest city in the universe. Queer men and women descended upon SF as early as the Gold Rush era but especially after the first and second World Wars, and since that time have dug their heels in and turned the city into a LGBTQ paradise that can be felt not only in the Castro—but from the Bay all the way to the Pacific Ocean. If you’re in town for a good time, know that there is plenty to be had. Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about LGBTQ San Francisco.
