Thanks @Expedia, for publishing my photos in 15 exciting LGBTQ-friendly cities around the world

Thanks for choosing several of my photos to illustrate this piece on the Expedia (@Expedia) viewfinder blog.

I chose my favorite of the 7 they used above. It’s of “Carrera De Tacones”, High Heel Race, Madrid Pride, Calle Pelayo, from 2015. Madrid, Spain celebrates its 40th year of Pride festivals this year. In 2015 it celebrated 10 years of marriage equality. High heel races are slightly different in Madrid than they are in the United States – oh the cobblestones!

In this century, it’s definitely “As Washington, DC goes, so goes the nation,” but I suppose we look to inspiration from the world 🙂 . And a great one it is, where everyone is respected and represented. The Rest of the photos they chose are below. Enjoy.

Peace, love, and understanding are what make these LGBTQ-friendly cities so fun. Party hop for Pride or visit any time, these places are always welcoming.
