9 - Celebrating Milestones While Staying Put

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.

Social distancing and restrictions on movement may currently be altering how we celebrate important milestones, birthdays, and anniversaries with our partners. I can imagine that a lot of us have to think outside of the box to celebrate such special occasions during these times. Here’s a few ideas you could try to spice up those stay-at-home special occasions. Pop open Epicurious or a trusted cookbook and try to re-create a favorite meal from one of your past vacations or travels. Make the occasion even more special by adding music that sets the mood and takes you and your partner back to that place and time. Attention is in the detail, so you might want to go all out, dress up, and light some candles to relive those memorable moments. If you try any of these at home, we’d love to see a photo or video on social media. So share it and #GayTravelToday and also #Sagitravel.

8 - Warhol Whole New Perspective at Tate

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 Tate Museum in London has turned its exhibit of queer icon and pop artist Andy Warhol’s work into a virtual online experience. The exhibit was only open for five days before it was shutdown due to COVID-19. Instead of just leaving the exhibit in lockdown, The Tate Museum decided to release it on the World Wide Web for all to see and it’s pretty powerful. Traveling to this exhibit in London is as easy as a click on your screen to be transported to view Warhol from a whole new perspective. This bold exhibit shines a light on some of his works lesser known than the “Campbell Soup Can” paintings and presents Warhol through the unique lens of his immigrant story, queer identity, and his views on death and religion. To view it, visit Tate on YouTube and search for Andy Warhol at Tate Modern – Exhibition Tour. Show us your favorite work by Andy Warhol on social media. Share it and #GayTravelToday and also #Sagitravel.

Now, it isn’t news that everyone’s travel plans have been delayed or postponed until further notice. To help us get through these times, we can still live out our gay travel fantasies by binge watching some of these all-time favorite LGBTQ-themed movies. These movies showcase gorgeous backdrops, beautiful scenery, and may or may not include traveling. If you haven’t already added these to your watchlist, then go ahead and add these to the queue: Brokeback Mountain, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Transamerica, Y Tu Mamá También, A Crimson Mark, Seashore, and August. And I’ll throw in a couple more recent binge worthy TV shows: Queer Eye Japan, Dragnificent, and Pose. Even if just for a few hours, hopefully those recommendations will transport your mind to another place, especially for those using their vacation days for a stay-at-home staycation. Tell us on social media about your favorite LGBTQ-themed movies and TV shows. Feel free to even share a screenshot of what you’re watching.

5 - Welcome Aboard Mx

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.

When booking airline tickets, most passengers are still required to specify and choose their gender, but this is slowly changing. Not too long ago in 2018, both the International Air Transport Association and Airlines for America approved amendments for booking procedures to allow for additional options for non-binary passengers. Paving the way forward, there are a few airlines in both the US and Europe that are allowing customers to identify as something other than ‘male’ or ‘female’ when booking. To take advantage of these changes within airline travel and booking procedures, you’ll need to have a gender-neutral passport or travel document. There are around a dozen US states that are now offering non-binary or ‘X’ markers on driver licenses and state ID’s. Canada’s own, Porter Airlines claims to have been the first to introduce booking options for non-binary people; while Air Italy became the first in Europe to offer a third gender option; and in March 2019, United Airlines was the first in the US to offer an ‘X’ option for those not wanting to mark themselves as ‘male’ or ‘female’ while booking travel arrangements. It also added Mx to its drop-down menu of prefixes. Have any of you out there ever booked a non-binary flight? If so, we’d love to hear about your experience on social media, so share it and #GayTravelToday and also #Sagitravel.
