Temptation Cancun Resort Comes Out For Pride Week 2019

Temptation Cancun Resort Comes Out For Pride Week 2019 | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

It’s that time again – get out the glitter, stop eating carbs, get those brows done and break out the rainbows – it’s PRIDE 2019! I don’t want to see any of you rolling your eyes and yawning, “Oh that again?” If as a frequent traveler from Pride to Pride – Miami, LA, San Diego, New York, San Francisco, Long Beach – the shine has somewhat dulled over the years; the crowds have blended into a blur, the headliners all seem the same, and the drinks get smaller but more expensive. Sigh. What’s a girl, or guy, or inbetweener to do?
