Win a $2000 Dinah Shore Vacation Package

TRAVEL & LGBT Win a $2000 Dinah Shore Vacation Package Meg Cale   As a queer woman and blogger, I’ve attended many events for queer women. I’m talking Pride festivals in 10 countries – a lot. There is just something about Dinah Shore Weekend in Palm Springs, California that just feels a bit different than the others.   If you’ve been hiding in the closet for the last twenty years, Dinah Shore is the world’s largest lesbian event.

My Top 10 Hate Comments of 2016

LGBT My Top 10 Hate Comments of 2016 Meg Cale One of the consequences of being so open and public with my life is the amount of trolling and hate comments I get on the internet.

Travel Is Political – Inauguration Day Digital Trump Protest

ACTIVISM & TRAVEL Travel is Political Meg Cale I’m one of those lucky people who have multiple passions – travel, the queer community, and digital activism. It’s no secret that I started my career as an LGBT activist. I’ve facilitated social justice workshops and given speeches all over the world, I’ve even written a book about it. But I haven’t been implicit about how I see the intersection of these passions.  Well – travel is political. And to be a queer traveler is a radical act.
