Kauai’s Mix of Nature and Adventure

Kauai’s Mix of Nature and Adventure

BY KELSY CHAUVIN | If you think about it, Hawaiian culture is one of the most easily identified, even for those who’ve never set foot on its lush lands.

Last Minute Beat the Heat Escapes

BY ROSS D. LEVI | So you never got around to planning that amazing summer vacation for this year. Okay, totally understandable, your life is crazy busy. You’re still a good person.

An Equal Rights Vacation

An Equal Rights Vacation

BY ROSS D. LEVI | Most LGBTQ New Yorkers know that our state was the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement at Stonewall. Some know that the women’s rights movement was born here as well.

No Wrong Way In New Orleans

BY KELSY CHAUVIN | Whether you’re a New Orleans first-timer or a deep fan who can’t get enough, this city seems ever ready to charm you anew. Yes, it’s a historic place — one of America’s oldest cities, in fact — and its heritage is a huge point of pride for locals. But part of […]

BY KELSY CHAUVIN | Kicked back in a lounge chair on the shore of the Yucatán Peninsula, cocktail in hand as a Caribbean breeze fills the shade beneath my beach umbrella, I’m reminded that daydreams can come true. Lately, I’ve been daydreaming a lot. Stress from life and work, from the election, and from winter’s […]

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | When as many as 9,000 athletes gather in Cleveland August 9-16 for Gay Games 9 (GG9), at least one New Yorker will be able to say he’s seen it all. Charlie Carson, 59, attended the very first Gay Games in San Francisco in 1982. Since then, he’s returned to San Francisco and […]

Very Committed Clowning

Very Committed Clowning

BY DUNCAN OSBORNE | Sitting on the set of “Legends,” the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus that is performing in the New York area through March 23, DJ Weiss was carefully applying the clown make-up that he would wear through media appearances and two performances. “A lot of people think it’s a mask,” […]

The Magic of Molokai

The Magic of Molokai

BY DAVID NOH | I missed Gay Pride in New York, but living right on Christopher Street with the hordes on my doorstep — rather than celebrating in Central Park, with space, freedom, and less coralling cops, as we used to in the good old days — gives me a worthy excuse, I feel. Instead, I […]

The Pines No Longer Barren

The Pines No Longer Barren

BY JOSEPH EHRMAN-DUPRE |  This summer, make way for the Pines. The internationally known gay mecca is about to reclaim its status as the premiere summer nightlife capital with the grand re-opening of the Pavilion, a Fire Island institution.
