FLAGSTAFF: It’s So Raven

Author: , June 30th, 2017

Raven - Flagstaff

Flagstaff Pride After PartyHey all… we just got back from a short trip to Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona. My Family Reunion was over the weekend, but we snuck out to see Flagstaff’s Pride in the Pine’s After Party.

The venue – the Orpheum Theater – is a little odd. The stage and the seats are separated by a standing/dancing area. We got there early and got good seats in the third row with a good view of the stage.

Then the show started, and everyone in front of us got up to watch the show standing, and I kid you nbot, five or six guys that were at least 6′ 2″ tall stood in front of our seats.

So we got up too.

The show featured one of RuPaul’s girls – Raven – and she and some of the others cane out into the crowd to see all of us. That’s when I snapped the shot above.

While it was amazing to see Raven – and so close! – the standout of the show was China Collins. She should be on the Drag Race – she killed it with her lip synch.

We had a great time, and will be reporting on more parts of Flagstaff and Sedona over the next several weeks.

Exploring the Grand Canyon and Flagstaff

Author: , August 21st, 2013

Grand CanyonThe Grand Canyon has been showered with accolades as much as any of America’s many spectacular national parks, yet few who visit this 300-mile-long gorge leave disappointed – it’s one natural attraction that truly lives up to its considerable reputation. Many of the park’s LGBT visitors combine their adventure with either a stay in rollicking Las Vegas or the groovy New Age town of Sedona, but don’t overlook the nearest small city, Flagstaff. This laid-back, cultured, and pine-studded college town has plenty going for it and makes a terrific base for exploring northern Arizona.

The largest city on Interstate 40 between Los Angeles and Albuquerque, Flagstaff (flagstaffarizona.org) is known for its seemingly endless supply of inexpensive chain motels and restaurants. Sadly, too many road-tripping visitors never get much beyond the exit ramp before continuing on with their journeys.

In fact, this well-kept, historic city of about 66,000 is worth getting to know – it’s known for cool, dry summers and snowy but sunny winters, and has enough diversions and attractions to keep you busy for several days.

The laid-back, cultured and pine-studded college town of Flagstaff has plenty going for it and makes a terrific base for exploring northern Arizona.

The largest city on Interstate 40 between L.A. and Albuquerque, Flagstaff is known for its seemingly endless supply of inexpensive chain motels and restaurants. Sadly, too many road-tripping visitors never get much beyond the exit ramp before continuing on with their journeys. In fact, this well-kept, historic city of about 66,000 is worth getting to know — it’s renowned for cool, dry summers and snowy but sunny winters, and has enough diversions and attractions to keep you busy for several days.

The presence of Northern Arizona University infuses Flagstaff with a youthful, bohemian personality that’s enhanced by the many outdoorsy types who have settled here from smoggier and more crowded parts of the West. The gay scene is subtle but pronounced — plenty of gay men and lesbians live here or nearby, and the rest of the population seems largely split between those who embrace diversity and those who simply don’t care much about their neighbors’ gender, race or sexual orientation.

My Red-Rock Road Trip Through Northern Arizona

Author: , July 13th, 2013

Red RocksGot a bucket list? One of my bucket-list items was to drive across the desert and see the epic flatness, red rock passes and endless desertscapes of the wild west. Conjuring images of old westerns watched with my dad, I imagined the good guys and the bad guys hiding in the canyons and bluffs for the ambush. While visiting Phoenix, Arizona, I took a 400 mile, 9 hour road trip from Phoenix through Sedona to Flagstaff, on to Meteor Crater, via Route 66 to “Standin-on-the-corner” in Winslow, Arizona and back cross-country to Phoenix … in a Ford Mustang Convertible!

Doesn’t the top-down freedom of wind in your hair, the endless sun of Arizona at 70 miles per hour in a convertible sound like a perfect daytrip? If historical landmarks are your thing, Montezuma’s Castle’s for you. If it’s the grandiosity of the red rock wonders, Sedona’s yours. Prefer upscale shops and boutique getaways? Sedona’s got what your chasing. Camping or kid-friendly desires? Slide Rock or Red Rock State Park is the thing.

Taking Highway 17 north from Phoenix towards Flagstaff first takes you to Montezuma’s Castle (in the Cape Verde area). Over a thousand years ago, the Sinagua people lived here in an ingenious 45-room dwelling high up on the cliff face.
