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. Still others are aware of the state’s prominent role in bringing an end to slavery. Particularly this year as […]

No Wrong Way In New Orleans

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 […]

Dreaming of Summer

Dreaming of Summer

BY ROSS D. LEVI | It’s hard to believe, with snow a not so distant memory, but it’s only a matter of weeks until the unofficial start of summer. A great way to get there quicker — in your mind, at least — is to have a summer getaway booked and just awaiting your arrival. This […]

Daydreaming On Riviera Maya

Daydreaming On Riviera Maya

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 […]

New York’s LGBT Athletes Rev Up for Gay Games 9

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. Just in time, too — the Pavilion is turning 60 this summer. But those who may […]

Home Place Like Noh

Home Place Like Noh

BY DAVID NOH | After staying away for four ridiculous years, the siren song got to be too much for me and I finally returned to my homeland of Honolulu for one delicious month. A truly legendary time was had, filled with the most yummy food, friendship, and romance — the sort of magical time […]

Lending a Hand to Peru, Returning to the Closet

Lending a Hand to Peru, Returning to the Closet

BY TYMON MANNING | As a muscled male model playfully flits across the screen on my favorite Peruvian show, “Combate,” my host sister calls him, in English, a butterfly. “Como se dice ‘butterfly’ en Español?” I innocently ask. “Homosexual,” she replies. A smile is all I can think of as an appropriate response. To pursue […]
