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.
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.
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.!
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.
