Recently I got to adventure with five other queers on on behalf of the Florida Keys & Key West! If you’ve never been to The Keys, the little islands off the coast of Miami, you’re missing out on some very colorful places and a truly wild time. On the outside, The Keys are a laid back stretch of beachy towns with predictable tourist traps and seaside souvenir shops, but there is a rich history of queerness just beneath the surface, as well as incredible experiences like snorkeling off Molasses Reef or watching the sunset from a catamaran.
It’s our epic guide to some of the best places to eat, learn, walk, shop, party and be queer in Los Angeles.
I spent five days in Miami and Miami Beach, and it was not nearly enough! Here are some things I checked out and would recommend.
You shared some very thrilling stories with us on our recent Queer Travel Survey. Here are highlights of your adventures!
If you’ve got 15-20 minutes to tell me how and why you travel and where you go and what you do there and how you feel about it on a few different levels, it would be so great. Note: this is not the same travel survey we told you about last week!
When I can’t travel myself, I turn to Instagram to soak up all the glorious travels of other queer women! They share glimpses of other realities and inspire me to get out of my bubble.
In and around Jamestown you can see 2000-year-old trees, llamas, an allegedly haunted B&B, and a lot of stuff that’s generally cute as fuck — it’s a great place to do the lesbian thing of taking a weekend trip with someone you’ve been dating for five days!
This isn’t the Saturday Morning Cartoon you were expecting, but it’ll probably be better than drinking a $5 cup of coffee with powdered creamer, you know?
A list that’s slightly more relevant to travelers like us — here, queer, in coach!
Hey, we may be small – but that doesn’t mean we’re small-minded!
It’s a little city full of odds and ends (and some queers) planted in the mountains.
Although Baltimore is not known as a tourist destination or a LGBTQ vacation spot, the city has an abundance of culture and beauty to offer its visitors and residents.
On this small island, there are eight Scotch whisky distilleries. My wife and I visited three of them, all within a couple miles of each other: Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig. Here’s what we learned.
Hot women-only hotels, resorts and cabins to check out in Ohio, New Jersey, Florida, Oregon, Palm Springs, Delaware, Key West and Montana — just be sure to check in before 1998.
If you live in or are moving to or visiting any of the cities that we have Queer Girl City Guides to, you’ve probably noticed that they’re pretty gosh dang out of date. But not for long!
“Calculate how many ‘free’ airline snacks you would need to eat to break even on the cost of your plane ticket.”
In November, Team Autostraddle went on their very first Olivia Travel vacation and it was really awesome and this is their story.
Financial independence from the patriarchy was a primary goal of lesbian feminism, because true liberation required not relying on men for anything, including money. It’s a tricky thing to pull off now and was even harder back then. But, somehow, Olivia did it.
Sure you know about the Field Museum and the Rock’n Roll Hall of Fame but did you know about the Mars Cheese Castle or the Dungeons & Dragons Memorial Park? If you’re a weirdo and you’re traveling through Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan or Indiana any time soon, this post is for you!
Bellingham is often described as a little version of Portland, Oregon. It’s the best city I’ve ever lived in, and I’m proud to call it home.
