Gay Getaway: Good Enough for Wonder Woman, Perfect for You

Enjoy the sights and tastes of the Amalfi Coast By Buck C. Cooke When looking for the filming location for Wonder Woman’s home of Themyscira, Warner Brothers settled on the Amalfi Coast. It’s easy to see why it’s the perfect place for the fictional, super hero-worthy Paradise Island.

Maine

Your Maine Event

Rustic charm, great food, gay-friendly destinations, and postcard-perfect fall leaves make this winding trip the perfect autumn giveaway By James Parker Sheffield Maine wasn’t originally on my list of must-visit gay getaways.

Miami: The Beach Goes On

From boom to bust to boom, Miami’s South Beach is heating up again. By Tray Butler Miami Beach is the place where neon goes to die. So said the late comedian Lenny Bruce — allegedly. The oft-repeated quote becomes questionable knowing that Bruce met his own untimely demise in 1966, long before the then-crumbling Art Deco District became “God’s Waiting Room” full of blue-collar retirees.
