Show us Your Summer Trip


Despite the economy or maybe even because of it, many gays and lesbians are still taking well-deserved summer vacations.  With airfare and hotel prices at an all-time low and with some of you already on post-layoff "staycations," while searching for your next job, many of you have decided to seize that free time on your hands to show off your summer-ready bodies on a romantic cruise, a tropical island getaway, or on a whirlwind tour of European Pride festivals. Or maybe you and your posse opted for a road trip across the country. 

Regardless of your destination, one of the most exciting things about traveling is getting to share the fun with your friends back home through stories and photos.  We're also curious about where you've been, and who and what you've seen.  So answer all (or some) of the questions below and email them -- along with at least 4-5 photos of your trip -- to [email protected] with "Vacation" in the subject line and you might see your exciting getaway featured on PlanetOut.
