A Guide to Friendsgiving in Quebec City

A Guide to Friendsgiving in Quebec City | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
Québec City is easy to fall in love with throughout the year, but it is extra special during the Holiday season, and in the company of great friends. This year my friends wanted to go to Europe for a quick getaway but because of the late planning (not me), the flight prices were ridiculous. What was the next best option? Quebec City!

Abba, Amma, Adonai: An Australian Journey in Gender | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

"Abba, Amma, Adonai," Peter and I recited, the Lord's Prayer flowing from our lips as we read from the Koora Retreat Centre prayer books. We were sitting in Peter’s home, a train car remodeled into a one-bedroom house with large, beautiful windows that looked out into the Western Australian bush.

Guadalajara city guide: what to do, plus the best bars, restaurants and hotels

Guadalajara city guide: what to do, plus the best bars, restaurants and hotels | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
Visitors often overlook Mexico’s second city but it is both cosmopolitan and – as capital of the state where tequila and mariachi originate – quintessentially Mexican
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Its cultural heart today is lively Colonia Americana, with its weekend street markets and free concerts held on broad avenues lined with palms, jacarandas and colonial mansions.

LGBT Weekend Travel: Niagara Excursion

LGBT Weekend Travel: Niagara Excursion | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

The striking Niagara Falls is less than two hours away from Toronto so we decided to go for a short excursion, especially since my friend had not seen the Falls from the Canadian side (way better!). To be complete tourists, we even took the Hornblower Niagara Boat Tour that takes you right up to the Falls so that you can experience it up close and personal. Growing up in Toronto, I have been to the Falls many times but I hadn’t been on this cruise since I was a little boy. I remember it being a lot of fun and just...
