The Caribbean ABC’s – Go Girlfriend

Three popular “A, B, C islands” make up the southern string of islands just off the north coast of Venezuela. As part of the Dutch Antilles, these Caribbean island gems are extensions of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Drier than it’s northern Antilles rain-forested cousins, the A, B, C islands beauty is in it’s beaches, it’s mangroves and it’s consistent warm dry conditions. Being only about 12’ north of the equator, the sun can be very intense – but the offsetting trade winds keep a consistent breeze blowing to have movement of air (sometimes quite gusty in May and June) that helps the scorching heat. A secondary side benefit of the east-west trade winds is that it is kept out of the hurricane pathway that most often veers northward once it reaches the Gulf of Mexico – thus keeping the islands out of harms way.

As equal opportunity lovers of the humid rain forested Caribbean islands, GoGirlfriend also has a love on for the drier, warmer, windy A, B, C islands. There’s lots to do with rich snorkeling, diving, land-sailing and beachy adventures just not found in the other Caribbean islands.

Aruba “One Happy Island”

With more sunny days than any other island, and beaches fronting all sides, Aruba is big enough to offer some diverse activities, yet small enough to rent a scooter and explore it all. Most activities are centered on the leeward west coast with resorts and hotels abundant north and west of the capital Oranjestad, and the natural beauty of the Natural Bridge and Arikok National Park face the eastern windward side.

Gay Friendly Seattle Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals

Gay Seattle, WashingtonIf you lived in Seattle in the 1980s or early 1990s, you had to travel out of town (to Olympia) to catch the kind of gay film festival that could call itself an annual event. That all changed 15 years ago, when Seattle got its own full-scale celebration at the Harvard Exit. Returning to Capitol Hill, the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, produced by Three Dollar Bill Cinema, starts up again Friday at the Egyptian and Northwest Film Forum.

Pacific Place, Central Cinema and West Seattle’s Admiral will join in the following week with “The Adonis Factor,” “Violet Tendencies” and Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor’s long-delayed, now-out-of-the-closet “I Love You Philip Morris.”

The opening-night special “Bear City” (7:30 p.m. Friday at the Egyptian), sets out to deal with gay men who would rather fantasize about John Goodman than Brad Pitt. In the words of one character: “Throw some hair on that belly.”
