Come one, come all. Southern Decadence is known for welcoming leather lovers and bears, but they aren't the only types of people you'll see. All ages, genders, races and orientations come to party.
We're bruised, but now, we're stronger. Let's prove it at these post-June Pride events.
I long for a day when we don't need to worry about where we travel and when LGBT Pride is used as only a celebration of who we are rather than the need to campaign for equality. Until then, we still have work to do. And we'll continue doing it.
Last week passersby in London were stunned when they were greeted with adverts reading "Imagine London without gays..."
There was uproar on social media as people demanded to know who was responsible for the adverts and some wondered whether it was an attack campaign. However unlikely in this day and age that such creative would be approved, the adverts stirred people's feelings.
According to the calendar, it's spring, even if the weather is not cooperating. We're two weeks into the season and I'm sure you've probably seen cherry blossoms, cleaned out the attic, and went to your first kickball practice. Now it's time to plan your spring travel.

It really upsets me that in this day and age the LGBT community still feel unable to travel to any destination on earth. Clearly there is still some way to go in order to break down the barriers that exist and to ensure that the law is made equal everywhere.
The travel industry has long been known as a safe haven for gay employees. But when it comes to catering for the LGBT consumer, the industry has fallen shamefully behind in its offering to provide a level of service and reassurance that we all deserve and expect.
Finding a safe space abroad just became easier.
And beyond knowing the rules and political climate of the country you're visiting, it's also critical to understand the social climate of the specific city and neighborhoods you'll be exploring.
In light of the U.S. Supreme Court's affirmation of the Constitutional guarantee of marriage equality, the truth is there for all of us to see: the face of families has changed enormously. And with those changes has come a major metamorphosis in the faces of family travel.
