Not Quite Economy

Not Quite Economy

At my usual speed, a June post about a November trip is right on time. To all those, like me, who found themselves transferred from Star Alliance to oneworld when US Airways became American Airlines, I hope it’s useful for some time to come. In a nutshell, oneworld gives us...
Euro Vittles

Euro Vittles

Well, not just vittles. Some beverages and drinking spots must also be included. Gay bars, too, because, well, “all your appetites,” reads the tagline. The source material is a trip with friends and family during Thanksgiving week 2014 to Paris and Zurich. We were, altogether, my mother, Dora; husband, Fernando;...
Bonita Birthday

Bonita Birthday

While there’s certainly an argument to be made that this blog is nothing but Fernando birthday reports, let’s just move on. This time I took him to San Juan, where we met up with Jenny. You may remember Jenny from “Fernando Takes Manhattan.” With her Puerto Rican heritage, among other...

Trip report: PRG-FRA-IAD

This is a long time coming, writing an entry about a trip in March. But, better late than never, and nothing’s changed too dramatically in air travel in the past months. Getting this out of the way also clears the runway for a US Airways trip report from July…. So, after a few days in...

DC Bear Crüe party promoter Charger Stone said some appropriate words, which were followed shortly after by Glitterlust. There’s not much...
Righteous walk

Righteous walk

The weather might not have been entirely cooperative, but SlutWalk D.C. can certainly be considered a success, nonetheless. Yesterday, Saturday, Aug. 13, I joined the hundreds of other sluts – because as I’ve already written, no matter what you think of yourself someone thinks you’re a slut – for a cheeky, loud, provocative and poignant...

Beach bears

Earlier this month, Fernando and I enjoyed our first full Provincetown Bear Week. Last year, we oriented ourselves with a half-week. And this year was so, so much better. Last year we stayed at the Boatslip, the super-convenient center of each day’s “tea dance” and so much more. But what the Boatslip offers in convenience,...
Rehoboth R&R

Rehoboth R&R

Taking as much advantage of summertime as possible, I chose to cash in the Monday July 4 holiday on the preceding Friday, as weekly deadlines would demand Monday work just the same. And that time cashed was celebrated in Rehoboth. For the uninitiated, Rehoboth Beach, Del., is the mid-Atlantic’s gay-ish beach town. It’s not Provincetown...
