“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”

Michael and Matt Gay Travel Portland Pride Parade.jpg


We’re Michael and Matt! Two travel-obsessed husbands from Portland, Oregon. We are sharing our stories to bring you the best of the best in LGBTQ+ travel destinations, gay travel tips, hints, and advice from local guides and the experts themselves! We hope that what we share not only inspires you to travel, but provides you with the information you need to plan your itineraries and take the best trips of your life!

We first met in 2014 over YouTube, through posting our coming out videos. One week later, Michael purchased a flight to visit Matthew in Seattle. And the rest? Basically history! We fell in love, Matthew moved to Nebraska for a number of years to be with Michael while he worked through Dental school, and after graduation, we got married! Michael works as a full-time dentist, and Matthew works as a full-time freelance photographer and writer.

When we are not traveling or working, we create and post content on YouTube and Instagram, and here on our blog!
