AllOutVacations.com - 2017 Bearibbean Cruise

AllOutVacations.com - 2017 Bearibbean Cruise | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Join the Bears of Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Dallas on a exotic 7 day cruise out of the exciting Port of Galveston Texas. We will hit many exotic places such as Cozumel Mexico, George Town Grand Cayman, the Royal Caribbean owned port of Falmouth Jamaica, before heading back to our home port of Galveston. Soak in the Caribbean sun, lounge by the pools, and just have a cocktail while on the beach or sailing on a boat.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Join in as your hosts the Bears of Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, and Dallas present a fund raiser for their community work. Every stateroom sold, Cruise Planners-All Out Vacations will donate a portion of the proceeds back to these Bear chapters of the west coast. Not just BEARS are invited. We had many different people and all are welcomed and embraced by this group. Special Activities planned for 2017 Bears Caribbean cruise.

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 | 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."
