2017 Queer Packing List

2017 Queer Packing List

We got married.

Now, we honeymoon in Ireland.

Here is the 2017 packing list for all you gender non-binary, queers and the LGBTQ clothing lines that helped me stay stylish while traveling!

First, I graduated to rolling luggage, y’all. Our backpacking days aren’t over, but it’s time for the travel glow up. Gay-friendly, TJ Maxx is THE best place to get luggage and other travel necessities. It’s there, I purchased by Samsonite and my leather Calvin Klein toiletry bag. Not a budget bag, but well worth it is the Professional Slim Laptop Backpack from eBags. I will be using this for my carryon. It’s compact, lots of compartments, keeps my computer secure, and slides onto my luggage handle.

13 Days in Ireland –

  1. Jacket – BauBax windbreaker.
  2. 3 T-shirts – Tom Boi white t-shirt, Revel & Riot “Smash the Binary,” Revel & Riot “Queers for Fears”
  3. 1 Collared Short Sleeve – Peau De Loup
  4. 1 Flannel – Peau De Loup
  5. Boots – Clarks
  6. Walking shoes – Vans
  7. Crew Neck Sweat Shirt – Gaylien
  8. Wool Cap – Wild Fang
  9. Cap, Socks, Undies – Tom Boi
  10. Binder – My Double Design 
  11. Watch – MVMT
  12. Carry On Bag – eBags

Ace Hotel New York

For Brooklyn Pride, Meg Ten Eyck from Dopes on the Road travel blog, invited me out for a night on the town and an overall gay ol’ time.

We had the amazing opportunity to stay at the hip Ace Hotel in Manhattan, which is one of seven Ace Hotel locations across the country.

If there’s one thing Ace Hotel knows how to do, it’s to create ambiance. As self proclaimed space for “for the people who make cities interesting, ” I can tell you that Ace hotel lives up to it’s reputation.

Entering the lobby from the bustling street of 29th, I was greeted by a dim interior and the chatter of entrepreneurs, artists, designers and luxury tourists. It had the kind of energy that only New York can: where anything and everything is happening so much that the potential is tangible.

The architecture contributed to the vibe. Vintage pieces were arranged in an fresh, urban way. This was echoed in the room as well.

Upgraded to a suite, we were delighted to find a record player and claw footed tub. All pieces gave the impression of simplistic elegance. I was charmed by it’s ability to be both a high-end space with a swank friendly feel.

The Specs:

You can’t do better than this prime location in the city. It’s a walking distance away from Union Square, Madison Square Park and Broadway.

Prices are high-end, with a Mini room averaging around $180-240 per night. Loft style rooms cost upwards of $701-840.

The eats at Ace Hotel range from the Breslin: an English style gastropub, who will deliver room service 24 hours per day, to The John Dory Oyster Bar, which offers delicious seafood fare under $25. Any way you slice it, Ace Hotel offers a gastronomic piece of heaven.
