How to Have an Ethical Elephant Sanctuary Experience in Thailand

Animal tourism is a touchy subject. And, as awareness around animal tourism rises, the lens on ‘welfare centers’ and elephant sanctuaries become more critical (and rightly so). With more information out there tourists are becoming more and more cautious about where they put their money when it comes to animal experiences. And finding genuinely ethical elephant experiences in Thailand is no different. Elephant tourism in Thailand is massively popular. And during our trip to Phuket and Koh Lanta, we saw a number of different elephant sanctuaries and attractions. After a lot of research online, we decided to take a half-day…

The Ultimate Thailand Lesbian Travel Guide to Bangkok

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been searching for a place where I belong. I’ve found glimmers of it over time. Like when I’d split a cab with my roommate and we’d both turn around to see the Manhattan skyline out of the back window while we drove over the Brooklyn Bridge. Or the first time I went to a drag show and saw real live lesbians (gasp) at my local college queer club, Muthers. People keep asking me why I love Thailand so much. I think it’s because I’ve always felt like I belong there. Bangkok is…

15 Incredible Things To Do in Sukhothai Thailand

This past week I was invited to speak at the first ever LGBT Travel Symposium in Thailand in collaboration with Out There Magazine. It was a monumental event that served as Thailand’s coming out party as a welcoming and affirming destination for LGBT travelers. After my speech, I was lucky enough to go from Bangkok to Sukhothai. Sukhothai, which means Dawn of Happiness, is a Thai city about 250 miles north of Bangkok. It is only about an hour and a half by plane and the tiny airport even has zebras! It’s also a wildly unrated destination for visitors exploring…

The Best LGBT Photographers Documenting Our Community

Photography plays an important part in documenting the experiences of queer people. LGBT photographers have documented everything from the biggest touchpoints of the queer rights movement all the way through the tiniest most intimate details of our journey to create families of choice. Media representation of our community hasn’t always been as accessible as it is now – keep in mind that it wasn’t until the 90s that we even saw LGBT characters on TV. The LGBT photographers on our list today have given our community the gift of access to millions of queer people from every walk of life.…

Should I take THIS vacation: Things to ask yourself

Sorting out the details of booking a vacation can be stressful. Knowing whether we have a good deal, that the destination is right and if it’s worth the hassle can be confusing and stressful.  For some people, this uncertainty and added stress may make it feel it’s just easier not to. Plus, we all have busy lives. That looming concern of a last-minute cancelation (find out more about cancellations) can at times feel like too much to handle.    However, traveling is good for the soul. The benefits of travel couples fill up multiple posts on their own. Of course discovering…

A Rapidly Shrinking List of All the Lesbian Bars Left Worldwide

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that lesbian bars are shutting down at an increasing rate across most of the Western world and, I assume, the planet in general. This cuts off a lot of access to our community and helps to render queer women invisible. To make matters worse, the majority of gay-friendly spaces cater to gay men and, while most are welcoming to LGBTQ+ women and nonbinary people, it can still be alienating to not have a place of one’s own in our city centers. That’s why I’ve prepared a list of all the lesbian bars…

Travel Decor: 10 Unique Travel Souvenirs to Inspire Wanderlust.

I’ve been on the road for the last six years and have explored 5 continents and 40 something countries [ I don’t keep track anymore]. But to be honest, I don’t have many souvenirs to show for all my adventures. There are many reasons for that but one of them is that I haven’t had a permanent residence to put them in and it seemed silly to buy things for a future house. That being said, I have bought some things along the road while traveling but in my first year of blogging I stopped buying cheap shot glasses and…
