Inhaltsangabe: Access Gay USA gives the inside story on the crowd, the scene and the important details you won't find in any other gay travel guide. What's the hottest dance club in town? What bars are where? Which hotels and restaurants make gay and lesbian guests feel the most welcome?
Access Gay USA not only provides the inside scoop on nightlife, accomodations, and restaurants, it also includes important details on local gay festivals, events, shopping, safety, visitors' information centers and more.
Written by gay and lesbian writers across the country, Access Gay USA gives travelers an insider's look at popular resorts including Provincetown, Key West and Fire Island, as well as gay magnets like New York, San Francisco and Miami's South Beach.
Rezension: Access Gay USA takes gay and lesbian travelers to where the hottest dance clubs are, to bars at which to meet "compatible people," and to sights that pay homage to queer culture. You won't find information on the Statue of Liberty, for example, but you will learn that the permanent collection at the Whitney Museum includes "not-exactly-straight artists like Jasper Johns" and that it occasionally features gay-oriented exhibits. Each of the 23 cities--from Atlanta to Washington, D.C.--is introduced with a rundown on its gay culture and political climate (stay away from Atlanta's Cobb County suburb, which in 1993 passed an antihomosexual resolution). After brief coverage of transportation options, the authors delve into the heart of the guide: write-ups of gay- and lesbian-friendly restaurants, clubs, and shops, as well as outdoor activities, hotels, and sights and culture. Feel like dancing the night away while in New Orleans? Rubyfruit Jungle "is definitely where the girls are--though the high-tech dance floor, 80-foot copper bar, pool tables, and (occasionally fabulous) live music also bring in some gay guys and a few hip straights." Need a place to stay in Seattle? Try the museum-like Shafer-Baillie Mansion on Capitol Hill, which is "popular with discerning homosexuals." Color-coded text and maps make it easy to find what you're looking for and where it's located. Take along a supplementary guide for directions to mainstream sights, but rely on Access Gay USA for useful, accurate information on gay culture in the cities you visit.
