EuroPride 2015 in Riga, Latvia

I was a witness to history unfolding itself in Riga this month. The third stop on my leg of the #MyGayPride tour with Two Bad Tourists and Gay Star News, Riga was the first post soviet country to host EuroPride. EuroPride is a week long celebration of European LGBTs. Each year, the celebration is held in a different country around Europe. This year was very different than previous years because it was held 200 miles from Russian border days after massive violence erupted in the Ukraine pride festival. Russia is well known for having strong anti-LGBT policies and has been...

Postcards from Riga

I got to visit Latvia for EuroPride 2015. Riga’s winding cobblestone streets in Old Town make it look like something straight out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. The weather is perfect in a mild-sunny-warm kind of way. I woke up early on a Sunday morning to take a breath from all my Pride travels to experience the morning calm of Riga.

Travel Journal: 48 Hours in London

Visiting London has been a long time dream of mine. When I was a kid, I was a bit obsessed with the Geri Halliwell. To this day, I believe she might have been my first crush. My… my… how some things change. I watched Spice World on VHS so many times that the tape frayed and I actually cried. CRIED. I was in high school… anywhoo that’s not embarrassing. My childhood was actually filled with tons of London centric stories. Peter Pan was always my favorite book growing up. So much so that I considered getting a tattoo that...
