New York City for the Holidays: My ProudFM Radio Spot

28 11 2011

New York City is one of the most exciting destinations to visit, well, ever, but it’s particularly energetic, vibrant and fun between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The sidewalks are packed with eager shoppers from around the world. Stores try to one-up each other with festive window displays. The sounds of horse-drawn carriages clomping by and smells of roasted chestnuts for sale by street cart vendors add to the multi-media holiday extravaganza.

I was a guest on ProudFM’s Travel Tuesdays. Here are suggestions for a terrific time this season in New York. (Click here to listen to this 3-minute radio spot.)

Vermont: The Green Mountain State Shows Some Pink

23 09 2011

View from Vermont's gay-owned Moose Meadow Lodge

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.
