Pride Journeys: St. Louis

Queer Travelogue: Exploring the Arch City

St. Louis is more or less centrally located, so it is easy to travel to from almost anywhere in North America. This makes St. Louis a fantastic destination for a long weekend getaway.

Pride Journey: Palm Springs

Queer Travelogue: A Magical City Replete with Gayness

Palm Springs is one of those destinations that you never get tired of. I’m not sure if it’s the landscape or the abundance of over-the-top gayness that makes the city truly magical.

Pride Journey: Grand Rapids/Saugatuck

Queer Travelogue: Midwest Offers Charm and Friendliness

For the past few years, I’ve heard about a small town in Michigan known for its LGBTQ friendliness and charm. It wasn’t until I had the opportunity to visit Saugatuck and its neighboring town, Douglas that I got to experience it first-hand.

Pride Journey: Wichita, Kansas

Queer Travelogue: It’s More Than ‘Cowtown’

When I found out I had the opportunity to visit Wichita, I was really excited. I had never been to Kansas before (aside from Kansas City) and was eager to see what “Cowtown” had to offer.

Pride Journey: Columbus, Ohio

Queer Travelouge: Midwest City Has Lots to Offer

This was my fourth visit to Columbus, Ohio and every time I visit, I discover something new. What a lot of people don’t realize about this thriving mid-west city is that its LGBTQ community is one of the largest in the United States and growing every day.

Pride Journey — Providence, Rhode Island

Queer Travelogue: Plenty of Fun in the Nation’s Smallest State

Being a proud gay journalist, I’ve travelled to dozens of Pride events around the world. From São Paulo, Brazil to Nashville, Tenn., I’ve seen just about everything. But, the one thing I had never seen was a night-time parade. That all changed in Providence. Yes…Providence, R.I.!

Pride Journey: Spokane, Washington

Pacific Northwest Full of Splendor and Natural Beauty

The Pacific Northwest is and has always been one of my favorite places in the country to visit. Natural beauty is around every corner and Spokane is no different.

Pride Journey

Provincetown/Cape Cod

Cape Cod is known for attracting throngs of LGBTQ beach and party goers to its north-most tip, Provincetown. Having never been to P-Town, the locals found it surprising that I would visit during the winter, when the towns population is a fraction of what it is during the summer.
