One of the best parts of blogging is meeting and collaborating all the cool people doing the same things that I love. Check out the top travel blogs for lesbians, bisexual, and queer women. Show them some love, follow them on social and let me know if there’s anyone I should add to the list.

Miss Miss Blog
Miss Miss Blog is run by lesbian couple, Miss K and Miss S. They are living and working in India while documenting their travels through video, photography and written narrative. Their content focuses on all aspects of travel, they also discuss what it’s like to be wanderlusting queer ladies in a homophobic world. They choose to highlight interactions and relationships with other badass queer women and communities along the road. While Miss Miss Blog is a newer lesbian travel blog it is one of the smartest. Check out their post on The History of Queer India for some smart, but relatable content.
The Lesbihonest Podcast
Speaking of smart content, I am borderline OBSESSED with The Lesbihonest Podcast by La Shaguita which is featured on The Queer Life. One of their more recent podcast episodes is pretty amazing, So A Lesbian Goes On A Tinder Date In Pakistan. The interviews and stories are better than nearly any other LGBT-specific podcast I’ve ever heard.
The Queer Life
The Queer Life is amplifying the voices of otherwise under-represented minorities: bisexuals, women, gays, lesbians, people of color, poor, trans*, polyamorous, and those with otherwise radical existences that challenge the status quo. They are not travel specific but they are bringing us LGBT news, discussions, and interviews from around the world. The Queer Life radio show airs live every Friday night live on YouTube/Google Hangouts on Air. The Queer life is also home to Lesbihonest Podcast, Trans Atheist Podcast by Maddy Love, and Changes In Latitudes by Charley Sabrina.
Wandering Wives is a comedy travel blog run by Emily and Sian Davies, a lesbian couple from the UK who woke up one morning in February 2013 and decided to get married. From packing tips to first-hand stories of scoring the best backpacking jobs, their content covers all the travel questions. Some of their best posts have tips for money saving travel hacks and advice on buying a campervan for your ultimate Aussie road trip.

Happy Camper Wives
Happy Camper Wives is the blog of Valerie and Jessi, they are lesbian adventurers roaming the United States in a t@b teardrop camper trailer and living minimally while on the road. They both work while traveling and have some great tips on how to earn money while on the road. I really love their camp recipes series because they show you that life on the move doesn’t have to mean weenies and fast food.

Lez Wander The World
Lez Wander The World is one of the most polished lesbian travel blogs. Zoey and Mari are currently based in Vietnam and share their personal experiences traveling the world as a couple. Their content focuses mostly on budget and adventure traveling with tips on Couchsurfing and How to Hitch Hike.
Curious Jessie blogs about Travel, Marketing, Design and LGBT issues. In August 2015 she finally took the plunge and left her Liverpool to travel the world with her girlfriend. They traveled the world for 14 months. This expedition might be over, but she still continues to explore what the world has to offer. You will find plenty of stories about their adventures together plus plenty helpful tips.
A Lesbian Suitcase
A Lesbian Suitcase is the blog of Ali and Ausha. They are Richmond, VA locals with a love of travel outside of their 9-5s. Alli is a middle school teacher, Ausha is a massage therapist and small business owner. Alli is a fan of hostels, Couchsurfing, and other “rugged” forms of travel, while Ausha is a fan of higher end travel options. Together, they take a balanced and practical approach to travel with room for both the rugged and more luxurious.
2 Moms Travel
2 Moms Travel is an LGBT family travel blog. Lara and Deb travel with their two young children while documenting their travels to help other LGBT families. They are one of the few family travel blogs with an emphasis on LGBT issues. Their guides like 5 Tips for School Year Travel and Top 3 Things to do in Anchorage, Alaska with Kids are useful and informative.
Les Talk More Travel
Les Talk, More Travel is the brainchild of Leslie, a Canadian currently living in Victoria, British Columbia. While Leslie covers LGBT-related issues most of her blog is about general travel. Leslie believes travel is just as much about discovering your hometown and sharing it with others as it is about leaving your city, country, or continent. You’ll find posts about local and international adventures.
Cheril and Monica
Cheril and Monica have been together since 2003. They believe in “work hard, play hard” and use their blog to archive some of their most fun and thought-provoking travel memories. Together they own several businesses including an LGBT children’s publishing company. On their blog you’ll find travel guides, relationship advice, and business tips.
