Destinations: Quebec // Le Beau Nord – an LGBT look

April 3, 2017

by Dane Steele Green

So you’re a Francophile. The boys! The food! The…no, that’s it.

Oh, well, yeah — Paris and all that. But there’s this thing about Paris. And Marseille. And Bordeaux. And the Loire Valley. Can you say “sticker shock?” No offense to France, or to the rest of the Eurozone, but...

Destinations: Delos // Island of the Gods

March 20, 2017

by Dane Steele Green

So here is the myth: the island of Delos was never rooted to the seafloor. Rather, it floated. This transient existence lasted right up until the very heavily pregnant Titan Leto showed up and gave birth to Artemis, Goddess of the Moon and the hunt, and Apollo, God of the Sun and music.
