Cast a Spell, Drink the Potion: Four Halloween Destinations for LGBT Travelers

Cast a Spell, Drink the Potion: Four Halloween Destinations for LGBT Travelers | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Halloween, for many, as cliche as it sounds, is a time when they can go out in costume and take a break from the reality they’re living. Notions of what is considered normal go out the window, and debauchery and revelry take over. For gay travelers, Halloween can be a time to experience this effect in an array of cities, and not only in the United States, where the semi-official holiday is most prevalently celebrated. Perhaps, this year, it’s time to dust off a costume and saunter to where the things that go bump in the night come out to play. Here are a few locales to joyously or frighteningly celebrate All Hallows Eve.

Live Your Gay European Fantasies With This ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tour In Italy | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

A lot of people walked out of their viewing of Call Me By Your Name with the sudden urge to eat a peach and take a trip to Italy. Well, with a new tour that’s specifically for fans of the film, you can live out those daydreams — peach not included, as far as I know.

The eight-night tour is being offered by Quiiky Tours, a company specializing in gay and lesbian-themed trips and tourism. It includes both famous historic cities like Milan and Bergamo, but also specific locations from the film like Crema, where most of the movie was shot.

Pride Journey – Seattle

Pride Journey – Seattle | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

A journey to the Pacific Northwest is something I always look forward to. I love the natural beauty of Seattle and of course the abundance of fresh seafood the city has to offer. Its proximity to both Portland and Vancouver are also benefits and the three cities are connected via Amtrak, so visitors can easily turn a trip to the Emerald City into a multi-destination vacation.
