We swung by Hong Kong for a quick weekend to take part in the Pride festivities there. They turned out to be rainy, but that never stops a celebration!
Taipei Pride might be my favorite Pride so far this year. In addition to enjoying the huge turnout (estimated at 80,000 people), feelings of pride were potent, and the tipping point for marriage equality felt closer than ever before. Taiwan is one of the most progressive countries in Asia, with a majority of its residents supporting […]
EuroPride, this year held in Amsterdam, is a pan-European pride event hosted each year by a different city in Europe. It was an amazing experience to see so many people from the community gather in one city to celebrate. Amsterdam is unique in that the parade is on boats and barges through the canals as […]
On Monday August 1, we grabbed a short flight from Prague into the Netherlands. We took a short break from seeing major world cities to rent a car and drive into a small town, Sommelsdijk, a couple hours south of Amsterdam by car. Sommelsdijk isn’t normally on a lot of tourists’ maps, but we had […]

The theme of this pride was “danke für nichts” which translates to “thanks for nothing.” Although progressive in many areas, Germany still […]

You can look at Charley’s professional quality photos here, but just to summarize, it was a really great time. This was my third time being […]
Upon leaving Tangier on June 17, we flew to Tenerife in the Canary Islands. (You can read here about our nearly free lodging while there, and/or take a look at Charley’s masterful photos of our time.) Tenerife was a good chance for us to slow down a bit, as our trip has been a lot of […]
It was a whirlwind trip for London Pride – we got in Friday evening at around midnight, caught a few hours sleep, and then headed out to Pride on Saturday morning. Sunday, we got up and went to the train station to head to Brussels. Pride was wonderful, with important themes running throughout that centered […]
