Domaine Madeleine - Port Angeles Gay Friendly Inn

Port Angeles Gay Friendly Inn – Olympic Peninsula

Seattle Magazine called our beds “the most comfortable in the world”. Trevor Morrow Travel said that Domaine Madeleine is “the perfect spot to hide away from the world.” Guests give us five stars for our attention to detail and cleanliness, luxury amenities, casual comfortable vibe, and romantic private gardens set amongst old growth evergreen trees.

Domaine Madeleine is a Port Angeles gay friendly inn that sits at the gateway to Olympic National Park on the scenic Olympic Peninsula, about 2 hours Northwest of Seattle. Located on a high bluff, the luxury inn overlooks the Strait of Juan de Fuca, San Juan Islands, Vancouver Island, and the Dungeness Spit. The collection of suites and cottages feature water views, private outdoor entries, indulgent spa bathrooms, and luxury amenities including super fast complimentary WiFi.

Olympic National Park is regularly named one of the Top 10 National Parks in the world. With over a million acres of unspoiled wilderness, you’ll discover the quietest spot in North America in the Hoh Rainforest, marvel at the sweeping alpine views from Hurricane Ridge (and re-enact The Sound of Music if you want), and sit in awe at the crashing waves on the wild Pacific Coast–all in the same day!

Thailand’s Trans Culture – The Nomadic Boys

BLOG - Thailand's Trans Culture - The Nomadic Boys

As soon as we mention we’re going to Bangkok, our (straight male) friends are quick to shower us with the “ladyboy” jokes also offering advice on “how to spot them“!

We always try to challenge stereotypes about transgender people in Thailand, the most common usually emanating from a guy’s fear that “they” are plotting to trap and seduce him. The reality, of course, is that “they” really are not! Most are simply trying to lead a normal everyday life, just like you and me, in a world that still hasn’t fully accepted its transgender community.

We have many transgender friends around the world who we’ve met in our travels, like Finn from Berlin. We take great pride in the LGBTQ bond that unites us: as gay men we are ultimately part of the same rainbow family, undergoing the same daily struggles of acceptance. We, therefore, take great pride in using our online platform to have an educative influence for transgender issues by challenging stereotypes and promoting a positive image of our transgender brothers and sisters.

One of our very good trans friends is Regina, who we met when we were out partying in the gay bars of Bangkok. Like us, Regina loves travelling and has stories from all around the world to share. Regina was also open to telling us all about her transition as well as her experience living/working as a trans person in Asia.

Trans Travel Blogger Aaron Edwards – Nomadic Boys

Aaron Edwards

We are very proud of our gay travel blogging community. It’s quite a diverse family with some of the most talented and kind hearted people we’ve ever met.

The trans side of our LGBTQ family is quite underrepresented, so it was with great delight when we came across Aaron Edwards, a FTM trans traveller, blogging about his travels with his girlfriend. Continuing on from our trans gay stories with ladyboy Regina from Bangkok and trans man Finn from Berlin, Aaron gave us this interview of what it’s like travelling as a trans man.

Hey there Aaron, introduce yourself!

Hi boys, my name is Aaron and I am originally from Chicago, USA. I am a transman and have been with my girlfriend Emily for over 3 years. We met in a gender inclusive/co-ed honours fraternity on campus at Illinois State University. My roommate and I invited her over to hang out and play card games, and since then she has never really left. We’ve been together for over 3 years and have been having a great time together!

Emily and I recently moved to Ukraine temporarily for work and decided that this was a great time for us to finally start a blog to document all our stories.

How do you identify when travelling?

I am male and have changed my passport to reflect this. In the States it takes a lot of time, energy, and hoop jumping but you can change your sex on your driving license and passport. After a certain point in your transition, it looks more strange if you keep the old gender marker that doesn’t look anything like you.

Thankfully at airports I’ve never had any major issues, other than confusion with my syringes and needles for my injectable medication – they always sets off the metal detector, but other than a bit of delay caused by this, I’ve had no issues.

Canada’s Trans Community Calls for Change in Travel Regulations

Canada Parliament

Jennifer McCreath has a fear of flying of a different sort: a fear she won’t be allowed on board. McCreath, a 43-year-old transgender woman in St. John’s, N.L., takes issue with a federal regulation that prohibits airlines from transporting anyone who “does not appear to be of the gender indicated on the identification presented.”

Doing away with the regulation is a cause the federal NDP has been pushing for five years, and one for which Justin Trudeau expressed support before becoming prime minister. It’s also one the federal Liberal government should be all over, given its self-proclaimed reputation as the party of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, McCreath said in an interview Wednesday.

“It all comes back to the notion of equality,” said McCreath, who described having to wait for two hours in a holding area before a flight to the United States in 2011, when she was in the process of changing the gender on her birth certificate. The Canadian regulation, she said, gives officials too much power in cases where someone doesn’t look like the gender indicated on their identification.

Fort Lauderdale Travel Campaign Features Trans Models

Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors BureauThe Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau has rolled out what it says is the world’s first travel marketing campaign to feature transgender models. The three models will be used in campaigns directed to both mainstream and LGBTQ media outlets. The campaign, which also features straight, gay and lesbian models, marks the destination’s latest outreach to the LGBTQ community and is designed to bolster its image as an authentic, diverse and inclusive brand. The campaign premiered in New York’s Times Square on New Year’s Eve with a billboard video featuring Isabella Santiago, a Venezuelan model and 2014 Miss World Transgender. Viewed by millions, the video was part of the backdrop to city’s New Year’s Eve ball drop.
