Tourism Tasmania takes visitors behind the scenery

Tourism Tasmania takes visitors behind the scenery | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

A new campaign for Tourism Tasmania highlights the pubs, art and quirky pieces of Tasmania, rather than the natural wonders of the state.


Via Wendy Forbes

Gay Travel: Discovering Ho Chi Minh City

Gay Travel: Discovering Ho Chi Minh City | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

I didn’t know what to expect when I first arrived in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in Vietnam. Both friends and family spanning several generations brought up the war, one of the only things they identified with Saigon. Many had advised me to trek somewhere else in Southeast Asia considering the stigma that remains with the war that occurred fewer than 50 years ago.

Faubourg Marigny Art and Books: How Otis Fennell and his little gay book shop on the corner hang on

Faubourg Marigny Art and Books: How Otis Fennell and his little gay book shop on the corner hang on | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

At first glance, the shop on the corner of Frenchmen and Chartres streets doesn’t look anything like a bookstore. Flyers for drag shows and music events — long past — plaster the front windows. Street artists, at times, clog the sidewalk. And customers who get past the exterior and push through the narrow entranceway find a veritable mess inside: dusty magazines stacked toward the ceiling, old VHS tapes piled up on bookshelves, and framed photos of drag queens.
