Why is Stockholm One of the Best Vacations for Lesbians?

I’ve been to Stockholm a couple of times now and was blown away by the simplistic beauty of the city and the relaxed progressive values of the Swedish people. I was so excited when Stockholm LGBT invited me back to their city after the pandemic that I couldn’t help but hype the city up for its queer-friendly values and a wide variety of things to do. Stockholm really is a perfect lesbian vacation destination.   Sweden is one of the most LGBTQ friendly countries in the world  Sweden has had a long history of LGBTQ acceptance. They legalized same-sex relationships in…

What to do in Stockholm, the Lesbian Guide

Normally when we travel, Lindsay stands out like a sore thumb. It sounds bad – but it’s just her reality but it’s also the reality of many LGBT travelers exploring the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She’s usually the tallest person in the room in Mexico. In the US people stare or make snarky comments. In some countries, she’s constantly misgendered. Traveling while androgynous can be a whirlwind adventure.⠀⠀⠀ I’ve held her hand on flights where she was terrified to be arrested for being queer in the immigration line. I’ve guarded the bathroom door in places where she was afraid to use the facilities.…

43 LGBTQ Influencers that are Changing the Internet

People hate the term “influencer” – and I totally get it. No one wants to feel like they’re being swayed by something other than their own opinions. Influencers in social media are people who have built a reputation for their knowledge and expertise on a specific topic. They regularly create content about a niche interest and continuously posts about that topic online. The job of the influencer isn’t to sell you garbage you don’t want. It’s to create content and curate entertaining media that sometimes features experiences, products, and services. With consistency and high-quality content comes a large following of…

10 Bucket List Items in Anti-LGBT Destinations

It’s illegal to be LGBT in 70+ countries. Some of these countries hold the most incredible wonders, brightest adventures, and most sought after travel experiences. We believe that all people, regardless of their identities, deserve to see the beauty and wonder of the world. We’ve written at length about why we choose to travel to anti-LGBT destinations, but I’ll briefly summarize our feelings by saying this if local people have first-hand experience with LGBT people they’re more likely to think favorably of our community. People cannot be expected to accept that which they have no positive experiences. That being said,…

The Ultimate Queer Weekend in NYC 3 Day Itinerary

I’ve talked at length about my unique situation growing up poor, I wasn’t born in NY but I lived there longer than any other place in my life. I consider myself a New Yorker not just by zip code but by personality. I wasn’t born in New York but I found myself there. I had the personality of a New Yorker before ever realizing there was an entire city of fast walkers and fast talkers just like me. For me, New York City is freedom. In NYC I can be as queer and as ambitious and as femme as I…

If You Love to Shop and Eat, Visit Gothenburg

  If Stockholm is the big sister, Gothenburg is every bit the carefree younger sibling it was destined to be. When you step from the pale blue tram car on to the cobblestone streets of the Haga neighborhood expects to see patios packed with young people. Let the fresh sea air hit your face as you wander along the canals browsing shops and eating a shrimp sandwich. Gothenburg is thriving with creativity and ambition. You’ll quickly recognize there is a distinctively European flair not found in many other Scandinavian cities.  Do not allow yourself to skip over Sweden’s “second city”.…

Norwegian Premium Review

Most of you know by now that I come from rather humble beginnings. In fact, everything I know about travel, I learned growing up poor. Despite owning my business and traveling the world. I’m still wildly practical. I don’t own a car, the most expensive possession I have is my MacBook Air, and all of my clothing fits into three suitcases. Let’s just say I’m not exactly a frivolous spender. Despite being a minimalist by nature lots of readers are surprised when I tell them I fly coach all the time. The only exceptions are the few times I’ve been…
