Act I

Pride season is now upon us, so make sure to fill your calendar with the parties and parades celebrating the LGBT community throughout the region. 

The impression many people have of Atlantic City — that it is already dead and half-buried in the sand — is based upon the scant knowledge provided by mainstream media of the four casino closures last year. But the lights are still on and the boardwalk hasn’t been rolled up and put away just yet.

From the Liberty Bell to Independence Hall, Philadelphia is known for its historic sites. But, just a few hours away is another locale that also played an integral role in our country’s evolution — and it offers travelers much more than a history lesson.

The summer season is upon us once again and musical performers of every stripe and style of music are gearing up to hit the road to soak in the adoration of the masses.

Among the throngs of bands and performers competing for your concert dollars are a number of queer, queer-ish and queer-friendly artists. With so much talent abounding, we put together a list of shows with LGBT interest, to help you plan your summer concert calendar.

Summer is (almost) upon us, and what better way to enjoy the warm temps than by hitting up some of our region’s outdoor offerings? From the artsy to the boozy to the creative, the events coming down the local pike will have you soaking up the rays while soaking in a bit of culture, community-building and, of course, fun.

I’ve been a Philadelphian all my life and am steadfast in my desire to keep my domicile in the City of Brotherly Love. But, as I was packing to leave my honeymoon last month, I truly was convinced that I could — and should — become an Aruban. That’s how at home my new wife and I felt at Divi Phoenix Aruba.
