Gay Paris - Carlos MeliaFRANCE: A Day On Foot in Gay Paris
by Carlos Melia
Here is my photo album of my entire day walking in gay Paris. I think I have been to Paris at least forty times in my life, and I never seizes to amaze me with it beauty. My day began walking up and down Champs Elysees, when I decided, due to the amazing weather, to visit a local Flea Market to buy a few things for our new apartment in New York. I asked to the concierge at my hotel, and her recommended the Marche Vernaison at Marche aux Puces in St Ouen. (Metro 4 – Porte de Clignancourt). Since the sun was out and the temperature was ideal, I decided to walk from Hotel de Sers to the flea market, which took me approximately one hour.

Colosseum - Rome, ItalyITALY: Italy is Calling Me
by Dolly Goolsby, Dolly Travels
I know, I have been very lax about blogging. I usually just blog while traveling, but life here in California is pretty good, too. Sunshine, good weather…I have been trying to get my yard pretty and inviting, as it is so nice to sit on the patio. In the evening, watch the birds eat and drink, and just relax. So, although it is lovely out here, I am getting excited about getting away again. I am usually in Italy at this time of year, so I am really ready to go back. This year, we stayed here as there were graduations and a wedding to attend, great-grandchildren to play with, family get-together that I really enjoy.

Altitude Singapore - Carlos meliaSINGAPORE: 1-Altitude Rooftop Bar
by Carlos Melia
One of the classics when you visit Asia, is to find the most amazing rooftops bars. Like KU DE TA at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, or Sky Bar and Vertigo Moon Bar in Bangkok, Thailand. Well this time, hosted by the team at AUDI Fashion Festival, we visited 1-Altitude Bar, where we had our own table and were afterward escorted to the VIP lounge. Occupying the three topmost floors of the 282 metre One Raffles Place Building. 1-Altitude isn’t just the highest rooftop bar in Singapore –it’s the highest multi-experience lifestyle joint in the world.

Esquina SingaporeSINGAPORE: Esquina Tapas Bar
by Carlos Melia
I would say, one of my favorite casual restaurants in Singapore, and one of the best tapas restaurants I have tried in a long time, not to mentioned the fantastic creamy Sangrias yummy. ESQUINA, provides visitors to the culturally-rich Chinatown with an added choice of European cuisine to the ethnic enclave. Open from Mondays to Saturdays, Esquina serves mainly modern Spanish tapas in a unique location that is surrounded by post-war colonial buildings, hip coffee joints and ‘old school’ home style restaurants. Leading the culinary direction for Esquina is Michelin star Chef Jason Atherton, the protege of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.

Sonoma Wine Country - Don and RayUSA, CALIFORNIA: TRAVELING IN OUR FABULOUS GAY WORLD – Passion in the Sonoma Wine Country
by Donald & Ray
When we are traveling around the country we always try to take full advantage of everything and on our last trip to San Francisco we drove on up to the Sonoma wine country and took a “wine tour” with “Out in the Vineyard” which is a company that is owned by Gary Saperstein and Mark Vogler. They offer luxury travels and exclusive adventures for the LGBT community in regards to wine. Iron Horse WineryOur day tour with them began at the Iron Horse Ranch and Vineyards. Our tour guide, David has been there a number of years and is extremely passionate about the making of wine. He gave us an excellent history lesson about grape growing, wines, bottles and even the corks. In our travels from coast to coast, he was the most interesting and knowledgeable tour guide that we have ever encountered. Brent Burch, the Accounts Manager at the Winery was extremely helpful and professional as well. They are located in Sebastopol.

New: Gay Days Fort Lauderdale

Author: , June 5th, 2014

Fort Lauderdale - Apple Maps

According to Gay Days president Chris Alexander-Manley, the event is expanding into Fort Lauderdale. It’ll debut in 2014, running from Nov. 25 – Dec. 1.

Alexander-Manley said they “had been thinking about doing a winter-style event,” and the harsh winter up north this year pushed them into making it happen.

Gay Days, which celebrates its 24th anniversary in Orlando June 3-8, previously expanded into Las Vegas in 2012.

The Fort Lauderdale host hotel will be W Fort Lauderdale, and reservations are available now.

What’s New for Gay Days Disney World

Author: , May 23rd, 2014

Gay Days OrlandoEvery few years our area’s theme parks go through a phase where they each launch new shows, rides and attractions. Whether the ultimate goal is to provide guests with additional unique experiences and memories…or if it’s a bottom line-based attempt to capture as much market share of tourism dollars as possible is debatable. But hey: if it means fun and exciting new thrills for us, we’re good. And while you might think that the theme park engineers and designers would have their newest offerings all ready to go by Gay Days–because, seriously, who’s better at creating buzz around anything new than we are?–try as they might, sometimes they just can’t get everything running correctly, and safely, until later in the summer.

No worries, though. Even if you hit all of the area’s theme parks last year, there’s still plenty new to be found this year.

Disney World’s Expansion

Since Gay Days Disney World takes place at the Magic Kingdom each first Saturday of June, let’s start our “What’s New” tour there. The park recently completed its Fantasyland expansion project–the largest expansion in the history of the park. The land is divided into two sections, the Enchanted Forest and Storybook Circus. Fantasyland’s signature ride, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, just opened and takes riders into the mineshaft workplace of Snow White’s seven best friends. Never mind that an attraction themed to dwarfs comes with a 38-inch height requirement, it’s a family-friendly roller coaster that features first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to gently sway during the ride’s twists and turns.

Gay Days ArizonaThe heat is on in Arizona as Gay Days arrives in Phoenix, May 8-12, 2014. The Gay Days brand has come a long way since it first launched more than 24 years ago. Orlando’s Gay Days has grown to an astounding 160,000 attendees. Organizers of Arizona’s inaugural year anticipate upwards of 10,000 participants at 15 different events throughout the long weekend.

The Arizona Grand Resort & Spa, located at South Mountain Park and Preserve will serve as home base, offering daily pool parties and happy hours, nightly “diversity dinners,” drag queen bingo, pool volleyball, an ’80s-theme SplashDance party at the resort’s 7-acre Oasis Water Park, and a masquerade-style, high-energy dance party in the 20,000-square-foot pavilion – all located on the resort property.

In addition, 40 LGBT-friendly vendors will present a community expo as well as a “Taste of Gay Days” event, offering samples from some of the best dining venues in Phoenix. For those that want to hit the golf course, the Diversity Cup Golf Tournament will include 18 holes of golf for 20 teams, benefitting the local nonprofit Phoenix Pride Foundation.

Rainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia Two Months Early This Year

Author: , March 26th, 2014

Rainbow Days - Six Flags Over GeorgiaRainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia will be held at Six Flags Over Georgia on Saturday, June 28, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on a day significant for our community.

This date will honor and be a tribute to the Stonewall riots of 1970 in New York, one of the beginnings of the modern gay pride movement – and this is the only Pride event in Atlanta in June.

A production of Atlanta Premier Events Group, this annual “gay day of fun” expects to attract some 3,000 or more from Greater Atlanta and beyond.

This year, events include mini-speed dating; rainbow “wedding” ceremonies; special performances on the Main Stage and guest DJs. A Pre-Party Friday night and an After Party on Saturday night are planned.

Also new this year will be free HIV/AIDS testing in the park.

There will be several levels of sponsorship, beginning with Presenting Sponsor to Bronze, Silver and Gold, and all levels are being sold now. Vendor tables this year will be $300 for companies and organizations that cannot afford a full sponsorship. Past sponsors include Coca-Cola, LivingSocial, Monster Energy Drink, Gayborhood App and others.

Admission to the all-day event is available in packages from $24.99 to $49.99 which can include parking, park rides, evening buffet and live stage entertainment. The prices are significantly less expensive than purchasing the amenities separately.

Prior to the event, T-shirts will be available for $12 on our web site. If any shirts are left, they will be sold at the gate on Saturday.

Tickets are available for purchase now at http://www.rainbowdaysatsixflags.com/.

The buffet picnic-style meal includes chicken filet sandwiches, hot dogs, baked beans, potato chips, ice cream bars and Coca-Cola fountain beverages. The meal and DJ entertainment begins at 6 p.m. at the Peachtree Pavilion.

This event has grown by leaps and bounds every year, beginning with just 200 attendees four years ago.

Atlanta Premier Events Group LLC is an event production and management organization that conceives and stages events in Greater Atlanta including celebrity entertainment, concert bookings, award shows, corporate meetings and other special events. It is the producer of Rainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia.

Disney Signs On to Orlando Gay Themed Week

Author: , February 1st, 2014

Epcot Center - OrlandoThis summer, Walt Disney Co. is signing on with a major event aimed toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender families. Disney World will be hosting its first-ever “Family Outfest” in Orlando, Florida” – a summer vacation for the modern family.

Family Outfest Director Gabrielle Shulruff told press, “We are just parents. You know, it doesn’t matter who you are or what your sexuality is, regardless, you are people and people with families like anybody else.”

Family Outfest will be part of an effort to increase the spending of LGBT families in central Florida by 25 percent, and that’s where Disney comes in. Orlando Gay Travel, the website advertising the event, lists Disney as a “main partner,” along with Nickelodeon Suite Resorts, Macy’s, and Hilton Orlando Buena Vista.
