About Guides Top Picks


Lesbian Travels
Kathy Belge
When I travel, I like to check out the local lesbian hot spots. When I'm in a new town on business or vacation, I always try to find a local lesbian bar, coffee shop or community center, where I can meet some local women and find out what's happening in that town. Where can you find the most up-to-date information about lesbian travels? From your fellow About Guides, of course!
