241 - ENCORE-Show Your Pride

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

With the recent news of New York City joining many cities across the world that have already cancelled their Pride celebrations, it’s such a major bummer and I know so many of you out there share that same sentiment. Pride season is one of my favorite times of the year because these celebrations give us space and an opportunity to truly come together in unity and share a unique sense of camaraderie; all in the name of love because you know, love is just that “love”. Year after year, Pride has given us so much life and has uplifted so many of our spirits and it’s an important time that shines a bright light on our community. Even in the face of a time when we’re confined in our homes, I want to encourage everyone to get up, open your windows, let some light in, turn up the music, and put on your dancing shoes to celebrate Pride virtually during this 2020 season. COVID-19 may have stopped our large-scale events, but let’s not let it silence our voices and especially the spirit of pride. I encourage all of you to flood your social media feeds with your favorite pictures and videos from past pride celebrations and events or how you’re celebrating this year at home. With so many Pride celebrations across the globe, which city do you think does it best? We’d love to see somes photos or videos of you celebrating in your favorite Pride city, so share it and hashtag Gay Travel Today and also hashtag Sagitravel.

240 - ENCORE-Marry Me Buenos Aires!

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

Here’s a little insight for all the lovers out there that are planning their future nuptials. I’d like to introduce you to the most progressive country in South America, Argentina. Most people probably aren’t aware that Argentina has become one of the main destinations for the LGBTQ+ community. It’s a beautiful and diverse country where you can marry legally, officially and attain that most coveted international recognition of your marriage. And to top it off, you don’t have to be a citizen of Argentina to get your marriage license, which definitely makes it an ideal destination and wedding location for the LGBTQ+ community. Quick fact, Argentina was the first country in South America to legalize same-sex marriage and it also included full adoption rights. So prepare to live your “Casamiento Express” fantasies down in Puerto Madryn or live it up in the big city of Buenos Aires. Have you out there ever traveled to Argentina? If so, we’d would love to see a photo on social media, so share it and hashtag Gay Travel Today and also hashtag Sagitravel.

237 - ENCORE-The Best Gay-Friendly Caribbean Islands

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

The Caribbean Islands have a reputation for being laid-back, and although swim trunks and fruity cocktails may be the case for some commercialized areas, many of the countries aren’t as inclusive as you think. But laws and attitudes are evolving, and with that, are several gay-friendly Caribbean hotspots! First up is Puerto Rico with its sunny Spanish-American influences, which make for a mix of culture and discovery. There’s fascinating history to explore here, from political revolutions to sugar plantations, with some smugglers thrown in for good measure. You could also go to Martinique a rugged Caribbean island that’s part of the Lesser Antilles and an overseas region of France. The volcanic island not only has a full range of laws protecting the gay community, but it has captivating hiking views among its mountains, rainforests and beaches. Check out the full list of best gay-friendly Caribbean Islands on Queer in the World’s website. What’s your favorite Caribbean destination?
