Beyond Proud, LGBT Toronto

Beyond Proud, LGBT Toronto | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

In April of this year, I joined ten US meeting and event planners for a three-day “Men About Town” experience organized by Tourism Toronto. It was my seventh excursion to Toronto since first visiting two decades ago, and most entertaining, and eye-opening, by far.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

My early ventures were of the in-out variety, and not the pleasurable kind, but as a dot.com “executive” somewhat at sea in the role. There were no real touches, just taxis, windowless meeting rooms, corporate hotels, and lobby bars, which did little to disprove Toronto’s then prevailing reputation as an Americanized, corporatized yawn. Or, as the late-actor Peter Ustinov once remarked, “Toronto is a kind of New York operated by the Swiss.”

The Hornet Guide to Gay Washington, D.C. | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
Even with the new administration in place, Washington, D.C., is still one of the gayest cities in the country. During the day, tourists flock to places like the Washington Monument and Dupont Circle (D.C.’s OG gayborhood) for sightseeing, and at night the city becomes a party town. With plenty of gay men to see and LGBT events to check out, gay Washington, D.C., is worthy of your next out-of-town trip.
