Gay Travel: Two Guys Find Light in Alaska

Like most New Yorkers I put a high value on summer sun, which you find in abundance in Alaska in the summer. All winter long, with each blustery storm or polar vortex I have to remind myself that sunshine is in fact coming. So you could imagine my reaction when my best friend suggested we make a mid-July trip to Alaska. Throughout his 20’s he challenged himself to visit all 50 states before his 30th birthday. Having visited the other 49 states in the Union, Alaska would be his finish line, and I couldn’t let him cross it alone. (Plus he had just undergone a break up and he really needed a bro-cation.)

Over the course of an 11-day trip we toured some of southern Alaska’s finest towns and cities including Anchorage, Homer, Hope and Talkeetna. From whitewater rafting to camping in a yurt and hiking in Denali National Park, we took on the adventures that Alaska had to offer. It’s funny to think now that I was ever worried about missing out on summer sun in a place with nearly 24 hours of daylight.

Why did you choose to go to Alaska?

I have always wanted to see Alaska so when my friend, Greg was planning a trip for his 30th birthday I jumped at the opportunity to tag along. Plus he needed a friend, his relationship having recently ended.
