There’s something magical and mystical about a gay safari in Southern Africa. It offers one of those rare experiences where we humans are guests of nature, on their scale. The animals run free, following instincts honed by their species over the millennia. We humble visitors are dwarfed by the grandeur of the surroundings while in our protective vehicle or safari lodge. We can learn a lot about living in harmony with nature by observing the people whose ancestors have long co-existed with the animals.
I’m currently in Mexico getting ready to host our Mexico City – Puebla Gay Cultural Tour. There are 8 guys in the group, which is within my favorite group sizes, so this should be a lot of fun! I’ll blog about the tour experience and share photos within the next few weeks if you’re interested to know more.
My niece Emily is Openly Trans.
She’s been transitioning since shortly before the Pandemic. For the last two months, she’s been working on the new building project next door with me. The two of us have been going like crazy to rebuild the bottom floor. I’ve even personally put in a few 15-hour days and all-nighters…phew.
22 marks 50 years since HE Travel’s founder Hanns Ebensten put a small ad in New York’s After Dark arts magazine. Hanns’ future tour director Cal Culver (aka gay porn star Casey Donovan) appeared on their cover. Hanns invited “discerning gentlemen” to join him for a week in the Grand Canyon the following year, thus initiating a half-century of gay travel.
