Tune into Sirius XM 108 tonight 8-9pm ET to hear Ed Salvato who takes your travel questions. You have to be a subcriber to listen but anyone can call at 866-305-6887.
The chatty, affable and sometimes ribald hosts are Derek & Romaine. The show is Sirius OutQ, one of the biggest LGBT media networks in the world though their listeners are gay, straight and everything in between.

Last month, I had the privilege of speaking to Vermont’s Commissioner of Tourism and Travel and Recreation Council about gay travel. I also had a whirlwind tour of this beautiful, progressive state.
It’s known for its maple syrup, covered bridges and extraordinary leaf-peeping opportunities. But that’s not that half of it. Pioneers in gay equality Vermont was the first state to introduce civil unions in 2000 and has been offering marriage for same-sex couples for the past two years — the first state to do so via statute and not after being forced by the courts.
There’s not a single gay bar in the entire state, but LGBT visitors will find a warm welcome throughout the land as well as gay-owned and gay-popular guesthouses and restaurants.
Here’s my report of a short but sweet stay on Toronto’s Proud FM with Mike Chalut and Acey Rowe.
Karen Mair of CBC Radio, Prince Edward Island, Canada interviewed Ed Salvato and Jeff Guaracino for her show Main Street after their keynote address at the annual conference of Tourism PEI. Click below to listen to their short interview.
Travel editor, writer, and expert Ed Salvato was on Derek & Romaine on Sirius/XM OutQ recently answering listener questions. Callers threw a huge number of questions on a wide range of topics at him, including:
Gay weekend cruises in Florida;
Gay tour operators;
Gay-friendly tours to Africa;
Best hotels for Gay Prides in California;
Gay Oktoberfest in Munich;
Honolulu and more!
In an alarming (kidding) new trend, they also followed up with him via email at email@example.com. You can feel free to do the same. He loves answering questions.
His interview lasted almost 45 minutes and is available below by clicking below. (PLEASE NOTE: it’s a big file and can take a minute or longer to load depending on your connection speed.)
Ed Salvato has over a dozen years of experience in the world of travel, with a special focus on the needs and interests of gay and lesbian travelers.
