Swiss Guard at Vatican City

With Pope Francis gallivanting around the United States, we visited Vatican City, an independent city-state surrounded by Rome and HQ of the Roman Catholic Church. It’s home to the pope and a countless treasures of iconic art and architecture.

A visit to Rome is not complete without a visit to the pope’s hometown, Vatican City and particular the Vatican Museums. We engaged in a a self-guided tour but you can also take a gay-oriented tour of the Vatican by our friends at the gay tour operator Quiiky. They point out some of the most LGBT-oriented art hidden in plain site.

Here are a few photos from our trip.

WIth that, it’s time to get back to your TV (or via a livestream like this at CNNGo) and watch the Pope’s arrival in Washington, D.C and travels to NYC and Philadelpia.

Welcome to DC, the hip, foodie, art hub with a whole lot of history. In April 2015, the natural wonder of the city converges with its bloody past, when the city’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival and the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination align for special events, exhibits and the best natural show in town. The festival runs March 21-April 12, and is among the best for glorious cherry blossoms.

This is definitely a first, as far as we know. And it gives you yet another reason to visit DC, in the era of a pro-LGBT oriented president.

Two original documents of major historical significance to the movement for lesbian and gay civil equality in the United States are now on public display in the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Gay civil rights pioneer Frank Kameny’s Petition to the U.S. Supreme Court (1961), and a letter to The Mattachine Society of Washington, D.C. (1966) from U.S. Civil Service Chairman John W. Macy, Jr., have been added to the Library’s popular exhibition on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, “Creating the United States.” “Creating the United States” has been seen by more than 1.5 million people since it was first opened in 2008, and according to the Library, the exhibition “demonstrates that the Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights are living instruments that are central to the evolution of the United States.”  The exhibit will be there through October 2011.For more information, visit: the website of the Kameny Papers.Originally published in
