Trends / LGBTQ

Las Vegas is a city teeming with neon lights, half-naked men performing acrobatics and an endless supply of musicals, so it should come to no surprise the city is incredibly LGBTQ friendly. The casinos regularly market directly to the community and it’s home to the largest gay club in the country, Krave Massive. You’ll never run out of things to see here.

With casinos dotting the landscape along the Strip you’ll always have something to keep you busy through the night. If gambling isn’t your cup o’ tea, you can always opt for one of the hundreds of spas around. There’s also excellent high-end shopping opportunities around every corner, more restaurants than most cities in the world and art galleries on display no matter where you go.

Sunday serves as the de facto gay night in Las Vegas with plenty of bars and nightclubs setting the proper mood. REVO is a popular choice at The Mirage with live DJs every weekend, while Share is a local classic that stays open until dawn.

When it comes to the shows, Vegas hosts one of the longest-running and largest female impersonation shows in the country. You’ll also find great tributes to Michael Jackson, erotic shows like Cirque du Solei’s Zumanity and, of course, you’re likely to find Celine Dion performing no matter when you go. She seems to like the place.

Las Vegas is incredibly welcoming to the entire LGBTQ community and a wonderful place to cut loose.

Guide to Celebrating the Holidays Alone

Celebrating the holidays can be lonely and not an event you’re anticipating. For some it means remembering the loss of friends and family that used to make the holidays filled with merry and joy. For others, the holidays are spent alone because of a circumstance.

Fortunately, there are many ways to enjoy the holidays alone.
