An LGBTQ Alaska Road Trip

I’ve never booked a window seat on a flight, but as our plane approaches Alaska my face is practically smooshed against the glass for a bird’s eye views of the landscape below. As we make our initial descent into Anchorage, I spy the Chugach Mountains in all their braggadocios summer glory. Each peak reveals super steep gradients painted in lush green with brown speckles and topped with dollops of snow-capped white—in July no less! It’s 9 P.M. and the sun is shining with the intensity of a theater floodlight. So much so that the elderly lady in the middle seat castigates me for having the shad ..read more

The Great American LGBTQ Roadtrip
Passport Magazine » Road Trips

This surge in road trip popularity wasn’t assumed, but it was predictable. In 1903, American physician Horacio Nelson Jackson and automobile pioneer Sewall Crocker, along with their dog Bud, made history by driving the first road trip across America. The turn-of-the-century journey spanned 63 days from San Francisco to New York, a significant feat considering the absence of convenient bridges and interstates, technology like GPS, and thousands of easily accessible accommodations, such as Airbnbs and roadside motels (which didn’t officially originate until 1926). Despite lacking the modern comf ..read more

The Road Less Traveled | Sonoma County Road Trip

Sonoma County is a wonderful place to explore the open road. I drove up from San Francisco, and what a magnificent drive it was. The 78-mile journey took me through the city, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and past the beautiful north shore communities like Sausalito.  From there, the palm trees and bayside views were exchanged for rolling hills and farmland. As I continued heading north, finally reaching Sonoma County, I began seeing the famous vineyards. In my mind, this is what Sonoma was. Vineyards, pastoral homesteads, and small farm stands selling pro duce and local wines. Howeve ..read more

“There is no better way to end a Vegas night on the town than at The Garden, a queer nightclub that recently opened in the Arts District. This place is crazy fun.”  — Jason It’s late in the day on a strikingly hot and bone-dry September afternoon in Los Angeles, the kind where one best not light a match. Right about now I should be angling my iPhone in order to take the perfect selfie while standing in front of El Capitan, the photogenic rock formation that towers over Yosemite Valley. But because wildfires are raging across Northern California, I’m changing course last minute and for the ..read more
