Lez Go Somewhere: Memorial Weekend 2016 Trip to Curacao

So I have had quite a few people ask me about how I travel so much or say that they would love to get out of the country for a few days. So after mulling it around and getting input from some of you I am inviting you all to my Memorial Weekend 2016 Trip.

But then the next question was where?

I love the Caribbean for lots of reasons. Great weather… laid back atmosphere… and usually great prices. The caveat being that many Caribbean islands aren’t exactly gay friendly and inclusive. No one wants to spend money to go on a trip to be shunned or having to hide. No bueno.  So I was extremely pumped when I was told about Curacao not once but three times within a month.

Curacao is a  beautiful  island on the southern tip of the Caribbean just off the coast of Venezuela.  It has gorgeous beaches, cultural attractions to visit AND Curacao prides itself on being gay friendly. It has the highest membership rate of businesses in the IGLTA (International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association) and a tight-knit community of friendly, accepting locals. And in case you were wondering, English is widely spoken on the island so another barrier is broken down.

Perfect? I knoooooooooow.

I am definitely going but I wanted to open it up to anyone else that wants to go as well. And no you don’t have to be gay… because that would be whack.

Want more details? Check it out.

Why I Need to Unfollow The National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce on Facebook

Now this is one of those blog posts that I have to think about before publishing. I talk to myself about it, I question myself about it, and hopefully I click publish in the end.

I overthink posts like this because I know what I am going to discuss can be as sensitive for you the reader as myself the writer. And deep down I don’t want the amazing non black queer people I know to think that this is about them… unless it is.

sigh

With that being said I need to unfollow the National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce on Facebook.

Girl I Didn’t Know You Were “Funny”: Chaunte Wayans

Please note that this post was originally called “bae watch”1 but I said no ma’am.

For those who didn’t know (which is probably only me), Chaunte Wayans (as in the Wayans… as in she shares genes with Keenen, Damon, Kim, Shawn and Marlon Wayans) is one of the hot new lesbian comedians on the scene.

KTravel: The Taste of Spain (Photojournal)

I have been home from Spain a total of 4 days. I am trying to get back into the swing of things but my life has been a little non-stop since hitting the tarmac.

I can’t wait to share my journey with you over the next few posts. The foodie in me has to start with one of the best dining experiences I have ever had abroad or in the states.

I am growing and am no longer petty so I am sharing the restaurant names and locations… for the ones I have.  Continue reading KTravel: The Taste of Spain (Photojournal)

Super Gay Movie in the Works: Macho

I know it has been a while since I posted but between my journals and my trip to Spain (pics to be posted soon) and everything else crazy going on…. I have been swamped.

But the project I am about to share about was very very important to me for several reasons but I will give you two. 1. Friend of the blog (and real life), super director Deana Williams  is attached to the project. 2. It is being shot in North central Florida, which you know is where my people are from (yes I said it as country as it sounded). I can remember spending my childhood there drinking Bright n Early and sitting on the porch with my Ma Helen.

Written and Directed by Faren Humes, Macho is a story of acceptance and the transforming power of love. Continue reading Super Gay Movie in the Works: Macho
