18 lesbian sites to bookmark IMMEDIATELY

When I was about nine, I typed the word “lesbian” into Internet Explorer search bar on my parents’ desktop computer after a girl at school told me I looked like one. (It was the week before I was going on holiday to South Africa and being the practical kid I was, I’d asked the hairdresser to cut my hair very short.) What came up were a bunch of ads featuring naked women doing things that I was too young to see. About three years later, I typed the phrase “am I a lesbian?” into the same search bar after...

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.

When Visit Oxnard invited us to visit we knew we had to take them up on the invitation.  Think sandy beaches,...

I consider myself a New Yorker not just by zip code but by personality. I wasn’t born in New York but I found myself there. I had the personality of a New Yorker before ever realizing there was an entire city of fast walkers and fast talkers just like me. For me, New York City is freedom. In NYC I can be as queer and as ambitious and as femme as...

50 Photos of our NYC Travel Influencers Meetup

One of the coolest parts about my job is getting to meet so many rad people from around the world. Often times those relationships are built online for months or years before I ever get the chance to meet folks in real life. I love connecting with people and sharing experiences through the internet but there’s still no substitute for face to face interactions. I’m a pretty extreme extrovert and those in-person meetings give me energy and make me feel inspired to continue traveling the world and creating content that inspires and equips queer travelers to explore. I speak...
