The coronavirus has inflicted a serious blow to the LGBT travel industry.

(Mirror) Located just an hour south of Portland, Oregons quaint Willamette Valley is undergoing a rapid transformation. Not only have tourists and wine enthusiasts discovered the winding valley dotted with orchards and hazelnut groves, so have the corporate behemoths.

(Mirror) After passing through Airport Schiphol a couple of times on my way to other destinations over the years, I finally kept a promise to myself and landed there on my birthday for a stay in the LGBT capital of Europe and the birthplace of gay rights — Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

(WB) Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is the premiere LGBT resort in North America and winter is a perfect time to visit. It’s the dry season and temperatures are in the low to mid-80s every day.

(Mirror) One of the best parts of being a travel writer is that there are always unexpected adventures waiting just around the corner. My latest adventure found me in the Bahamas…swimming with pigs!

(Mirror) Stay away from Venice, Italy in June, July or August. Unless you enjoy being smothered and choked by thousands and thousands of cheap, crassy tourists. This is a city of 59,000 people. Yet 24 million visitors a year make Venice one of their favorite stopovers.
