Zoom Vacations

Gay India October 16-28
India can be overwhelming especially to first-time visitors. This country of over 1.2 billion inhabitants stuns you with its beauty, diversity, warmth and the chaos and contrasts you’ll find in cities and villages alike. On our first visit we found it helpful to go in a group. Zoom Vacations combines luxury accommodations and seamless organization to provide guests with an orderly and memorable introduction to one of the world’s most fascinating and intoxicating countries, with its kaleidoscope of languages, cultures, and traditions. A trip highlight is a stay in a 5-star hotel with direct views of the Taj Mahal, which visitors have been trekking to since the 17th century and which still holds a mysterious allure.

This is during the Marcha de las Entorchas, at the University of Havana, commemorating a revolutionary event. Soldiers, workers, many participants.

1. Why did you choose to go to Cuba?
Why would someone not want to go to Cuba? I went in January of 2003. As someone who writes on LGBT issues in unusual countries, I also felt at the time, it would be a challenging place to visit. I wanted to see it before more changes might have been in store. I went legally as a journalist, via Miami. Here is the Gay City News piece I wrote, in 2003.

2. Can Americans go to Cuba now?
There are still restrictions, but it seems more and more people will be allowed to go. Technically pure tourism won’t be allowed, but there will be many opportunities.
