Things to do and see in Hollywood

When I say Hollywood, I don’t mean Los Angeles. I mean the Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, the Entertainment Capital of the World. Hollywood is made for tourists.

Travelling with the Rainbow Wig

Trans March Photos 2012 Pride Toronto Unlike last year, this year’s Trans March is less glamorous–sans the glitters and glamour of the drag queens.

New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest museum in the West. It has more than 2 million items! Really, 2 million! You can’t see it in half an hour or so—if you plan to just “drop by the museum.” You have to be there for a day or
