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.!
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.
