Visiting Paris With Kids

Author: , July 24th, 2015

Paris, France Gay TravelParis, one of the most visited cities in the world, is a fantasy wonderland for anyone, including gay and lesbian couples with children. There is no greater joy for a parent than see- ing the expression on their child’s face when he or she gasps upon first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower, tastes his or her first crepe, or looks wide-eyed at the impressive Notre Dame.

One of the first orders of business for President Hollande when he took office in 2012 was to make gay marriage legal in France.

Coupled with being well known as a gay and children-friendly des- tination, Paris is an ideal place to bring the family and to make memo- ries that will last forever in the City of Light. Here is our comprehensive guide of what to see and do, all broken down into specific categories as to not overwhelm you with all the marvels of Paris.

Traveling With Kids – My Vacation From Hell

Author: , April 17th, 2014

Frank Lowe & BiggsI absolutely love to travel. Everything about it appeals to me. My day-to-day life is extremely routine, and truthfully it drives me crazy. Nothing is better than packing up for a week and getting the hell out of Dodge. I will plan a trip ahead of time down to the fucking second, so when we get there, I don’t have to think about anything. This includes making very detailed itineraries and lists of outfits we are going to wear. Wes Anderson would be so proud. The only thing I can’t plan is everything going apeshit, which happened on our very first vacation with our little man.

Our son, Briggs, was 18 months old when we decided to do our first real vacation as a family. We chose Puerto Rico as our destination and booked the trip at a luxurious resort on the beach. Our logic was that he was too young to appreciate a true “children’s vacation” but old enough to appreciate hanging out at the beach all day. Fuck, were we wrong. This would be Briggs’s first flight, so I did ample reading on the subject and spoke to my doctor. He advised us to try Benadryl so he would slumber peacefully for the duration of the flight. In my head, I imagined him passing out nicely in his seat while his daddies sipped champagne. What the doctor didn’t mention is that Benadryl will have the reverse effect on some babies and cause them to become wired and overly cranky. That was what happened to our baby.

About an hour into our four-hour flight, it became obvious that he was really pissed off and was going to stay wide the fuck awake. He was screaming at the top of his lungs, and we didn’t know what to do. There was no consoling him, and the stares from the other passengers were borderline hateful. I wondered how many of them thought, Oh, look at the two dads who don’t know how to take care of their baby? We were so desperate to keep him quiet, we tried every trick in the book. At a certain point, we just bit it and realized it would be a hellish journey. I kissed the ground when we landed in Puerto Rico.
