Your Gay Agenda:
August & September Events


Hot gay events from around the world to spice up your calendar.

The editorial staff at The Out Traveler 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, the young at heart head for fun and games in the woods in Maine; thousands of women sashay south to Key West, and the popcorn comes out for Vancouver's 20th queer film festival.

Pick of the Month

Camp Camp August 24-31, 2008 Kezar Falls, Maine If you'd like to relive those long summer camp days and nights in gayer surrounds, Camp Camp ( in rural Maine has a s'more with your name on it. Lake swims, arts and crafts, cute counselors, rustic cabins and 200 men and women from all over the U.S. come to camp out in Kezar Falls. While the cabins are indeed camp-like, the food, thankfully, is not. GLBT

Start Planning for August:

20th Annual Vancouver Queer Film Festival August 14-24, 2008 Vancouver, British Columbia For eleven fabulous days in Vancouver, a glamorous alternative to the usual slew of tepid summer screen fodder appears. The Queer Film Festival showcases the best in independent queer cinema from around the globe with an eclectic romp of comedies, love stories, documentaries, music, galas and post-film parties. Cinematic highlights include the electrifying lesbian flick Secrets, the funny and poignant Like a Virgin and the dramatic XXY. GLBT

Coming Up in September:

Womenfest September 2-6, 2008 Key West, Florida From the welcome reception and cocktail parties to seminars and sports tournaments, this weeklong festival attracts a range of women to play in the Florida sun. Lest that seem too serious, comedian Lisa Koch and contests of the ilk of "Hot Buns" and "Wet T-shirt" entertainingly lower the tone. Those who prefer other kinds of watery adventures can head out to the reefs with an all-women crew for snorkeling and diving, clamber aboard a catamaran, or impress the hotties from the morning's seminars by parasailing over Pearl's women-only patio.
