The editorial staff at OutTraveler.com takes your travel needs very seriously. We continually scour the globe on the lookout for gay, gay-friendly, or queer (in both senses of the word!) events to put on your gay agenda.
This month, party it up in sunny Orlando , show your pride in New Hope, Pennsylvania , and look for the best in LGBT cinema in Toronto .
PICK OF THE MONTH
Inside Out: Toronto LGBT Film & Video Festival www.insideout.on.ca May 14-24, 2009 Toronto, Ontario With a well-deserved reputation as one of the foremost LGBT Film Festivals, Inside Out is set to put on another spectacular show in 2009, with over 200 films lighting up Toronto's screens. Launched in 1990, Inside Out is Canada's largest LGBT film festival. [LGBT]
START PLANNING FOR MAY
Over the Rainbow Pridefest www.newhopecelebrates.com May 15-17, 2009 New Hope, Pennsylvania An exciting arts community and scenic surrounds lure more and more gay folks to the charming village of New Hope. The up-and-coming gay destination on the banks of the Delaware River throws its sixth annual PrideFest with a tea dance, bingo, a parade, and tons more. [LGBT]
COMING UP IN MAY
One Mighty Weekend www.onemightyweekend.com June 5-7, 2009 Orlando, Florida Neither steamy Central Florida weather nor the occasional bleats of protest from the religious right can stop the juggernaut of Gay Day at Disney in Orlando. More than 100,000 queer revelers descend upon the Orlando area during the first weekend of June for the parks, the parties, and that old-fashioned Disney magic. [LGBT]
