Happy World Pride everyone!! 🌈 This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots that kickstarted the LGBTQ movement. Because they said no more and fought back, we are able to celebrate and show our love today! I still get messages sometimes from people who struggle to come out, confused with their sexuality or are frustrated with the discrimination we still face even within our community... this is why Pride still matters to me. Let’s all support each other and catch one another when we fall. Happy Pride!! #latergram #loveislove #pride #gaypride #worldpride2019 #pridemonth #lgbtq #intergaycial #blasian #gaysian 📸 @onceuponajrny This picture was taken in Stockholm where every subway station is a work of art. The one with the giant rainbow was, of course, my favourite! @stockholmlgbt @visitstockholm #stockholm

Happy Pride! 🌈 I had a blast celebrating Pride in my hometown, Toronto! It’s always such a great weekend catching up with friends and making new ones. It was extra special this year to be able to watch @teraj08 perform onstage! Next up is World Pride in NYC! Anyone going to be in town for that?! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 #latergram #toronto #torontopride #pridetoronto #gaypride #happypridemonth #worldpride2019 #loveislove 📸 @teraj08

Sometime you just gotta be silly and just enjoy the moment... like I do most of the time! 😝.

💭Hmmm, what’s for dinner? 😂⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I really worked up an appetite hiking around Yosemite National Park. I love the giant trees and that you start off in the valley surrounded by mountains. One of the best times to go is in May when the waterfalls are at their fullest from the snowmelt runoff. #latergram #MyTuolumneCounty #VisitTuolumneCounty #YosemiteNow #GoldCountry #HighSierra #california #travelblogger #lgbttravel 📸 @teraj08

The great thing about Tuolumne County and the Yosemite Region is that you can go from glamping one night to luxury living the next! You can make the trip whatever you want! Rush Creek Lodge was like a spa oasis tucked away in the middle of the forest. The only thing I needed to decide after a long day of hiking was if I wanted to hop in the hot tub or a soothing massage! :) @traveltuolumnecounty @yosemite_rushcreek #yosemite #MyTuolumneCounty #VisitTuolumneCounty #YosemiteNow #GoldCountry #HighSierra #california 📸 @teraj08

Glamping in style in a “Oregon Trail” style covered Conestogo wagon! They are super cute and even have heat and ac! Have you been glamping before?

My favourite thing about Jasper Pride was seeing the whole community coming together to participate. Behind us is a pride banner that can be found along the main street in town. Most of the store fronts also had cute rainbow decorations and there was even a contest for the best window display. 🌈❤️ @tourismjasper @jasperpride #jasperpride #venturebeyond #canada #jaspernationalpark #travelalberta 📸 @kristen_mckenzie @sleclair09

We were in Jasper for Pride this weekend were on top of the world! It was @teraj08 first time on a mountain and snowshoeing so it was cool to see and relive it through his eyes! We took the Jasper Skytram up Whistler’s Mountain (elevation of 7,472 feet) and hiked up to the summit to see the Canadian Rockies in all its glory! @tourismjasper @jasperpride @jasperskytram #jasperpride #venturebeyond #canada #jaspernationalpark #travelalberta

I love the sense of discovery when I travel to a new destination. I always meet wonderful people and take away only wonderful memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My recent trip to Puerto Rico was no exception, the people and breathtaking landscapes touched my heart. I cannot wait to go back. @discoverpuertorico #discoverpuertorico #puertorico #travel #latergram #hiking #travelphotography 📸 @teraj08

Puerto Rico is as beautiful as I imagined! Before going, I wasn’t sure if they fully recovered from the hurricane but clearly they have and our trip was so much fun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ We spent most of our time in the western part of the island where there are cute beaches and boutique hotels. It was a much needed break from the craziness of nyc. The best views, in my opinion, are at Rojo Cabo...complete with sweeping ocean views, a cute lighthouse and a pristine beach (totally all picture and social media worthy btw 🤣). @discoverpuertorico #discoverpuertorico #puertorico #caborojo #islandlife #lgbttravel 📸 (1st photo) @journeybetweenheavenandearth

You all know my passion is travel... and I love doing it in style! What better way to combine travel and fashion than to have coordinated luggage and swimwear. It is the perfect way to accessorize your summer vacation plans! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @roamluggage and @parkeandronen produced a colour coordinated swimwear collection. I love that, with Roam, you can embrace the rainbow and select your own unique colour combinations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Side bar, this was honestly my first time wearing Parke and Ronen and omg it is super comfortable and it looks great. I love that they have smaller sizes that fit me perfectly... Ain’t nobody looking baggy swimwear! Lol 😂 #nyc #PRxROAM #sponsored #Roam #roamluggage #parkeandronen #vacationready 📸 @teraj08

I can’t believe when I first moved to NYC, Hudson Yards was nothing more than train tracks and where the highline ended. Now, it is a new fancy futuristic neighborhood that will be home to over a dozen of new high rise buildings. In the center is the “vessel” structure with 154 interconnecting flights of stairs. If you can make it to the top, you are treated to amazing views of the river and surrounding area. It was really cool and reminds me of why NYC is such a great city! #latergram #newyork #nyc #hudsonyards #hellohudsonyards #outtraveler 📸 @teraj08

I think by now you all know I love to pamper myself once in a while. Spa days are the best days! What’s better than pampering yourself? Pampering moments with your loved ones! This weekend @teraj08 and I took a spa day for ourselves with the Garnier Moisture Bomb sheet mask. They have such a huge selection but we went with soothing chamomile, and it was super hydrating, perfect after such a harsh dry winter! All it took was 15 mins have re-plumped glowing skin. What do you do to pamper yourself?! #MoistureBomb #sheetmasklife #Masktogetherstaytogether @garniercan #rooftop #spalife 📸 @ron.emerson2 — Ad

Sometimes we take regular tourist photos too 😂 A nice couple came up to take this for us! This was taken in Forsyth Park in Savannah - I love how residents and tourist both come out in full force to enjoy this park, especially when the weather is nice. I also love the lush green oak trees that are delicately draped with Spanish moss found throughout the park and city. It is so romantic imo. @visitsavannah #latergram #visitsavannah #savannah #savannahga #savannahgeorgia #forsythpark #lgbttravel #gaytravel #travelblogger 📸 rando lady

I didn’t know what to expect but I was totally impressed by Savannah this weekend. From the cute squares to the amazing food to the friendly people - I loved it all! Here’s a few initial pics from our weekend. The first is of me strolling along River Street. 2 - City Market where I bought some amazing tasting Pecan Pralines. 3 - the Owens-Thomas House and slave quarters where you can go for a tour. 4 - one of the many cute squares found throughout the historic district. 5 - Teraj and I pigging out on a pint of Leopold’s ice-cream before dinner lol @visitsavannah #latergram #visitsavannah #savannah #savannahga #savannahgeorgia #lgbttravel #gaytravel #travelblogger 📸 @teraj08

Thinking back to when I was visiting the beautiful Banff National Park. Banff is Canada's oldest national park and home to some of the world’s most breathtaking mountain views. One of my favourite memories is driving the Icefield Parkway – one of the world’s most beautiful drives, connecting Banff with Jasper National Park. Along the way you will see ancient glaciers, cascading waterfalls, and sweeping valley views. I can’t to show Canada’s beauty to @teraj08! #tbt #latergram #canada #banff #banffnationalpark #waterfall #naturephotography 📸 @bb_to

This weekend was all about eating and catching up with family and friends! Saturday I went from dim sum to afternoon tea to Hakka dinner to cocktails. My visits to Toronto are always booked back to back so I can see as many people as possible within the few days I am in town. I usually end up catching up over food or drinks... one of funnest experiences this weekend was going for afternoon tea! @fairmontroyalyork has one of the city’s best afternoon teas - I loved the world charm of the Library Bar and the tea selections. I had the Ontario Icewine tea. It was so good! I also loved the cute little sandwiches and tasty desserts! #latergram #afternoontea #hightea #toronto #outtraveler 📸 @jayclass777 (and and Jason flew in all the way from Montreal just for tea!)

Snowball fight!! We were in Chicago during the polar vortex last week but we made the most of it. We were able to walk around in Millennium Park taking the cool art installations. We always try to make the most of each day ignoring all the things outside of our control. At least now we can get t-shirts saying we survived -40C ❄️ weather!

This was the year of embracing who I am and never ending Pride. Last weekend I was in Philly for OutFest, an annual event held in the gay village in association with National Coming Out Day. It may not be as glittery as some of the pride events I have been to this year but the message is super important. I remember the fear I had coming out to my parents. I was alone at home with them and wished I had someone there for support. Today, I am out and my parents are accepting but I am still working on getting my parents to be supportive and happy for me. How did you come out?! 🌈 @visitphilly #visitphilly #nationalcomingoutday #gaypride #comingout #outfestphilly #lgbttravel 📸 @mitten.escape and thanks 🙏 @krymsonscholar 💜

This past weekend my family and I walked with my nieces to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Fortunately no one in my family had breast cancer but the fight for cancer is something close to me. My dad was diagnosed with lung 3 years ago right before I left Toronto for NYC. I am grateful that least the growth is pretty slow for now and he is still able to enjoy life. I often feel like I am not back often enough to visit and to help with all the doctor visits. This is one of the main reasons why I visit Toronto each and every month!! #latergram #toronto #ipromise #family #runforthecure #cancersucks 📸 @teraj08

Some call it Canada’s Downtown. Others call it Toronto the Good, Hogtown, T-dot or The Six. Toronto has many nicknames, but I just call it HOME! I currently live in NYC but I still find myself visiting Toronto every month... I seem to discover something new to do or see! @teraj08 comes with me every few months and he absolutely loves it too - it’s like a 2nd home for us! This pic of us was taken onboard a sail boat we took out to the islands to enjoy the amazing city views. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of you have asked me for recommendations....

I love seeing the country side on horseback - there’s something really calming and relaxing about it. I think it helps I had the nicest and most gentle horse of the pack.

Foam party or giant bubble bath? Splashing around in the pool made me feel like a kid again. This was just one of the many daily activities they had for @caribbeanpride! It was exactly what I needed to unwind after a busy month and to prepare for another busy one coming up.

The best part of traveling is being able to enjoy the views with someone else... someone like @teraj08 😘.

Sometimes it’s fun being a tourist even if you are at home... I tend to get stuck on a work to home to work schedule and I forget I live in one of the most dynamic and amazing cities in the world - NYC!

Barbados, the “England” of the Caribbean, boasts a rich history and vibrant landscape with its idyllic beaches, swaying palm trees, and beautiful resorts. It was our first time in Barbados and we had such a great time exploring the island and saying hello to the cute sea turtles! We were fortunate enough to stay at the beautiful Fairmont Royal Pavilion, where every room has a beautiful ocean view - It was the perfect romantic getaway with perfectly landscaped gardens and colonial style architecture.

Through all the pride parties, delicious cocktails and amazing concerts, I found a little piece of paradise where I was about to get some much needed R&R last weekend. Bota Bota is one of my favourite spas with a full water circuit overlooking Old Montreal. It is a beautiful mix of the modern and the refined — all in a converted ferry boat!
