VIDEO: Button and Bly’s Travel Show in Los Angeles

Hey beautiful Queermos!

We are Button and Bly — two lezzers with a travel show on the internets. We started Button and Bly’s Travel Show about a year an a half ago, after leaving our jobs in production (Button a camera operator, Bly a sound mixer) so we could backpack all over Europe.

It started with us just documenting our travels for friends and family. Everywhere we went we were always on the lookout for new people, experiences, and the girl-on-girl culture in other countries. It was virtually impossible to find quality travel videos created by and for queer women, so we wanted to make sure we gave everyone a front row seat. In these past couple of years, the show has evolved into a LGBTQ-friendly travel/adventure/inspiration show, and here we are today!

If you have some free time on your hands, definitely settle in and watch some (or all) of our episodes from our first two seasons! Here is our very first one, from New York City.

And here we are in Amsterdam at the start of Season 2!

Season Three

The most exciting news is that our third season is in collaboration with Autostraddle! We thought, what better a way to kick things off than with an episode about one of the most iconic cities in the world: Los Angeles. In this Season 3 premiere, we show you around the city we live in… the city of angels. Check out some of the best gay nightlife, cruise around the beaches and hike with us to probs the most breathtaking spot in the city.

Button and Bly

Button and Bly are two inexperienced knuckleheads sharing their adventures around the world through their travel vlogs. They have found their niche in queer women. Not only is Button and Bly one of the only LGBTQ travel shows being made, it ranks amongst the top in quality of any vlog on the internet.

Button has written 7 articles for us.


    • Button’s hair is making me sit on the fence of growing my hair out, which I haven’t thought about since 2006.

      • Your hair looks pretty freakin’ fantastic in that profile picture so I’ll take that as a huge compliment.

        • Ahhhh! Thank you :D PS your episodes about Rome made me so happy, I studied there twice and it brought back many happy memories of cappuccinos and feral cats. (Did you know there’s a cat sanctuary in the ruins of an ancient bank, run by a retired opera singer? Because Rome.)

  1. i loved this so much that my heart, too, might also explode, but definitely not from the hiking. should i go on a hike? okay, i’m gonna go on a hike.

  2. the box/es under the tree! THAT IS SO NEAT. i can’t wait for the next episode and i am so excited about this collab that i might pass out.

    • It was sooo cool up there. Not only the view (obvs) but the whole feeling of the place. And such a neat thing to have actual physical reminders of other people that have been there before. It forces the present moment on you in a way that you only experience when you step outside yourself.

  3. I am ashamed to say that I live in LA and have never hiked up to that amazing spot with that cool box of books, but thank you for showing me cause now I might actually do it! I had no idea!

  4. Everything about this is as adorably endearing as you would expect something called “Button and Bly” to be.
