6870746593_37eb94cfb9_zJune is a big month for Pride around the world but one of the biggest and best celebrations is right in New York. Let’s not forget it all started here back in June 1969, too, with the Stonewall Riots, which kicked off a global LGBT movement that keeps growing. ManAboutWorld’s soon-to-be-released May issue has an insider’s guide to NYC Pride as well as five others we think you’ll love. If you’re a subscriber stay tuned for a notification in your iPad or Android tablet. If you don’t subscribe, click here for a special all-access offer.

Our Global Correspondent Jeffrey James Keyes moved to New York the moment he turned 18 and never looked back. Sixteen years later, he is a playwright, travel writer, and photographer currently living in the Big Apple. He currently contributes to ManAboutWorld, Metrosource Magazine, Instinct, The Luminesce, Queerty, and GayCities and has had plays developed and produced in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. We spoke to him about his passion for travel, and we selected his journeys as this month’s Parting Shots in our magazine. Here’s the expanded story and more of his photos.

1. Why do you love to travel?

Travel was never an option when I was growing up. The furthest trip I took when I was a child was to my family’s farm near Ashland in Northern Wisconsin. In high school I was able to participate in a foreign exchange program and studied in Offenbach, Germany. Upon returning from Europe I became stir crazy and saved every penny so I would be able to travel and see the world. I applied for every grant and program, even working with the church by teaching vacation Bible school in the Caribbean and building orphanage floors in the mountains of Guatemala. I’ve grown to feel a bit like Juliette Binoche in the film Chocolat, whenever I am in one place for too long I feel the need to hop on a plane and immerse myself into another world. Unlike Binoche in the film, I’ve set my anchor down in New York City and call it my home. Being able to travel, write about my adventures, and share my pictures through my editorial work is an extraordinary opportunity. Through working in LGBT media I’m able to share information about safe and welcoming destinations and offer advice as to how to curate a much-needed vacation. I share the stories of the people I encounter and pass on something.

Central Park/Great Lawn, Sep 2013 - 03This scene of the plush and verdant Great Lawn of New York’s Central Park looks almost like it was stolen from the Scottish Highlands. That’s the thing about New York: one minute your surrounded by soaring steel and glass skyscrapers and honking taxis puffing out exhaust, and the next, you’re nestled away in a quiet garden in the shadow of a centuries-old miniature castle. You can be anything you want in New York: the gentleman in a tuxedo strolling Madison; the hipster in skinny jeans sipping organic coffee in Williamsburg; the wide-eyed tourist in Times Square snapping photographs; the cool downtown kid dancing ’til 4am at some warehouse party; or the outdoorsy athlete, hiking his way through bucolic pastures of the city’s many parks.

In our April issue, we explore the inside track to all the faces of New York. So no matter which New York you are, we’ve got you covered.

1988- Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli attended a benefit at the Sheraton Centre honoring Michael Jackson

1988- Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli and Whitney Houston attended a benefit at the Sheraton Centre honoring Michael Jackson

The Times Square Sheraton may boast the best uptown location of any major hotel, and we love that it’s walking distance to Hell’s Kitchen, perfect for gays looking to party it up in Manhattan’s new gay mecca without having to worry about cab fare. In recent years, as Hell’s Kitchen has slowly been replacing gay outposts like Chelsea and the West Village, it’s become more and more logical to stay uptown.

The hotel recently underwent a massive $160 million renovation and it shows. The lobby has a grand feel about it, a classy lounge, a great restaurant and a terrific, below-level gym. The rooms themselves aren’t huge but feel intimate and cozy rather than small.  It’s still not a party hotel – you’ll notice plenty of families and children – but it’s one of the best options in a rapidly evolving area, where hot clubs and gay bars are now infiltrating what once was the sole hangout of camera-toting Midwestern tourists.

Once outside the revolving glass doors, you’re a five-minute walk to Central Park, Columbus Circle, and another 5-10 from Fifth Avenue shopping. In the other direction, you’re an equal distance from Times Square, Broadway, the Ed Sullivan Theater, and of course, Hell’s Kitchen proper. The hotel has been popular with iconic gay-popular celebrities, too, as witnessed by this classic photo from 1988.

Carter, Haven, & Ammon Museum of Natural History

Carter, Haven, & Ammon Museum of Natural History

By Haven Caylor

My husband, Sean, and my children, Carter and Ammon started summer with a one-week vacation the second week of June. Our favorite family vacation spot isn’t an amusement park or a beach it’s New York City. Ammon, Carter, Sean, and I have some special places we return to, and we add new places as Carter and Ammon get older.

Sean and I started going to New York City on a regular basis in 2004. Carter and Ammon started going with us when they were 18 months old. We have been lucky that Sean’s mother, Nana, goes with us to take care of Ammon and Carter if we go to a late-night Broadway show, but as they have gotten older, we choose shows that Carter and Ammon can enjoy as well.

If you missed the Winter Party Festival in Miami this past weekend you still have time to travel to one of your favorite dance events.

For 32 years, a decadent dance party helped to define the New York spring travel calendar. Next weekend, The Saint At Large will stage RITES XXXIV: THE BLACK PARTY. This year’s theme is “Rough Trade at Luna Park.” Held on the weekend closest to the vernal equinox, this party starts on Saturday, March 23rd at the legendary Roseland Ballroom in New York City.

Get ready for an adventure. This dance party is set in the outskirts of Rome in an abandoned amusement park. Strange Live Acts will be played out as a 5-act opera set in a cinematically inspired immersive environment. The fantasy ends sometime Sunday.

If staying up all-night dressed in your best leather is not for you, you might be interested in the Black Party Expo, now in its fourth year.
