The Striking World of Burlesque (PHOTOS)

by Adam Groffman March 24, 2016

Burlesque is its own unique form of art—one that often leaves a lasting impression. The stage presence of a burlesque performance is often unique and hard-to-mimic. Ask anyone who’s been to a burlesque show and they’ll often laugh and cry trying to retell about the performance, but it’s never as good as the original.

In a new book from indie publishers Book the Film, this uniqueness is perfectly...

Costa Rica Words and Phrases to Know Before Visiting

by Adam March 23, 2016

By Adam Groffman

costa-rica-words-phrases

Since studying Spanish intermittently throughout my life, I’ve picked up enough basic phrases and words to get by in most Spanish-speaking countries. But when visiting Costa Rica this past winter in the heart of Central America, I suddenly found myself speechless. As I quickly learned, the Spanish they speak in Costa Rica is slightly different than that in other Spanish-speaking...

Beginner’s Guide to Costa Rica – For First Time Visitors

by Adam March 16, 2016

By Adam Groffman

There are several reasons to make Costa Rica your next travel destination, both for work and for pleasure. Beyond the magnificence of the natural beauty, the friendliness of the Ticos, the amazing food and the extraordinary weather, Costa Rica is a small country characterized by its easygoingness and relative peace. A country without an army since 1948, Costa Ricais a paradise on...

Win an LGBT Holiday to Costa Rica – Exclusive Sweepstakes!

by Adam March 15, 2016

By Adam Groffman

I visited Costa Rica this past November and fell in love with the country—the food, the natural beauty, the beaches and the Ticoculture. It’s no surprise that it tops so many “best of the world” lists. In a country that’s only the size of West Virginia, there are over 150 volcanic formations with seven active volcanos. It’s one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world, with...

5 Gay Things To Know About Florence

5 Gay Things To Know About Florence

Florenceis world famous for its art and architecture from Italian Renaissance artists such as Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Machiavelli. As one would expect, this brings hordes of tourists and combined with the expensive rents in the city, the gay scene in Florence is not what it used to be, almost falling completely off the radar. A surprise,...

Ruzafa – Valencia’s Hipster Neighborhood

by Adam March 06, 2016

By Adam Groffman

I had already been a few days in Valencia. My hotel, the Ayre Hotel Astoria Palace, was centrally located, steps from the Toledo metro stop in the Old City. I was spending my time wandering the alleys and small, cobblestoned streets of the old city, stumbling onto street art, hipster cafés and the odd historical remnant from the past (including a very old tree). There was plenty...

15 German Words You Need To Know

by Adam March 04, 2016

By Adam Groffman

When I first moved to Germany, my knowledge of the German language didn’t go past kindergarten and gesundheit. While it has—thankfully!—dramatically improved, I still struggle with the language. The best part, though, is that I’m perpetually amazed at the new words I learn every day. While I won’t ever really know all the German words, there’s a certain charm to discovering new...

5 Gay Things To Know About Amsterdam

5 Gay Things To Know About Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city renowned for pleasures that one can’t experience elsewhere in the world, like their red light district and legalized marijuana practices. However, there’s so much more to Amsterdam, most notably from a gay travel perspective. Take for example, a holocaust memorial dedicated to gays and lesbians persecuted during the second world war or...

Four Play at Theatre503 – London Pub Theatre Review

by Adam February 29, 2016

By Adam Groffman

I don’t know about you, but recently everything seems to be about sex. Every think piece that comes out lately, especially those targeted at or about millennials, is about sex and/or dating. So when I heard about a new play at a small, independent London theatre pub, naturally my interest was aroused.

Four Play, written by Jake Brunger, is a new comedy about sex and relationships...

What To Do (and Where To Stay) Near Rome’s Termini Station

by Adam February 28, 2016

By Adam Groffman

Rome Termini

Most European citieshave their central train station right in the heart of the city—it’s just a part of urban planning. And, in a lot of those cities, it’s often the dirtiest and grungiest part of town—whether famous for cheap hotels, prostitution, drugs or any number of different vices. And while that leads to plenty of seedy neighborhoods, it often leads to a neighborhood full...

Theo et Hugo dans le meme bateau (Paris 05:59) – Berlinale Film Review

by Adam February 27, 2016

By Adam Groffman

Simultaneously the sexiest and the sweetest gay film I’ve seen, Theo et Hugo dans le meme bateau (it’s English title: Paris 05:59), captures my feelings and my attitudes of being a gay millennial. While some gay movies just seem to perpetuate stereotypes, I often find them quite interesting—showing off elements of gay culture I’m maybe not as familiar with. We’re a diverse group,...

We’re All Fucked

by Adam February 25, 2016

By Adam Groffman

Okay.

So for a few days now there’s been all this talk of this Yelp/Eat24 staffer in San Francisco. She wrote a blog (an open letter) to her company’s CEO, basically explaining in her own personal situation what a fucked up system we’re all trapped in. Naturally (because corporations will always win), she was fired shortly after posting the blog. In turn, a hundred million people...

#Berlinale Film Review: Europe, She Loves

by Adam February 25, 2016

By Adam Groffman

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie which left me feeling so inspired and so deflated at once. But as I walked out of the Colosseum cinema in Berlin last week, during the Berlinale International Film Festival, I was at once angry and excited, sad, mad and motivated.

Europe, She Lovesis the newest film by documentarian Jan Gassmann. This real-world documentary features the stories...

#Berlinale Film Review: Jonathan

by Adam February 22, 2016

By Adam Groffman

The film opens in the rain. There’s a tension in the air, but something beautiful about it, too. It’s a theme that permeates the new gay drama Jonathan (2016, Germany) which premiered last Friday night at the Berlinale International Film Festival.

Before I was able to get a ticket to the premiere, there was already a buzz about the film. It’s gay, it’s Germany, it’s the 30th...

5 Tips for Visiting Rome in Winter

by Adam February 16, 2016

By Adam Groffman

Travels of Adam - Rome
Rome in Winter – not so bad!

In 2015, Rome saw record numbers of tourists during the summer. And while that’s generally a good thing for the Italian capital, it also means long queues and large crowds in what’s increasingly a swelteringly hot season. So, rather than get my fix of Italian food, men and culture during peak travel season, I visited Rome a few weeks...

The Post-Apocalyptic Dream State of ‘Homo Sapiens’

by Adam February 15, 2016

By Adam Groffman

Homo Sapiens (2016, Austria)

The growing trend of “urban exploration” (or, if you want to be a bit more douchey: urbex) takes center stage in a new film by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, Homo Sapiens, which premiered last week at the Berlinale International Film Festival. Think what you like about the trend/habit/hobby, but Geyrhalter’s portrayal of Earth is strangely surreal, and, noticeably: sad. It’s a bit...

Practical Tips for Attending a Film Festival

by Adam February 13, 2016

By Adam Groffman

Wait, what?! It’s the first Saturday of the Berlinale—three days into the festival. George Clooney has already charmed the crowds and the journalists (and even Angela Merkel, too). Meryl Streep, that goddess, has been knocked down a peg with one of those Hollywood, out-of-touch-with-reality statements.

Running around Berlin these past few days and I already feel like my original...

8 Best LGBT Events & Festivals in Europe 2016

by Adam February 02, 2016

By Adam Groffman

February is traditionally the UK’s LGBT History Month. Over the past few years as LGBT individuals have gained more and more equal rights, there’s been a shift in traditional gay culture. And more of an understanding of what it’s like to be gay. “Being gay” is a diverse and uncommon trait, and with more discussion on the role of sexuality and gender in our world today, there’s...

The Things That Made Me, Me

by Adam January 22, 2016

By Adam Groffman

The past few weeks I’ve been a bit of an emotional mess, breaking out in tears at home, on the dance floor, in a café and on the street. The littlest things set me off these days. And, as such, I’ve found myself looking inward more often than out. Even while roaming the streets of Valencia today, I find my mind elsewhere. After my birthday recently, I set some secret goals for the...

Spain – Europe’s Best Gay Travel Destination?

by Adam January 21, 2016

By Adam Groffman

I’ve been visiting Spain as a tourist for as long as I’ve been visiting Europe. On my very first Eurotrip, after my freshman year of college, I came to Spain: Madrid and Barcelona. When I started my trip around the world, I started in Spain with four weeks traveling by bus and train through Andalusia and the Mediterranean coast. And since living in Europe, I don’t think there’s...

Greek Gay Culture Visits Berlin with Outview Film Festival

by Adam January 16, 2016

By Adam Groffman

This past December, the Greek Parliament finally legalized civil unions for same-sex couples. These households are now eligible for a lot of–but not all–legal standards and protections already available to married opposite-sex couples. Although, admittedly, these steps toward some initial form of equality have been long overdue, this is a big step for a country that’s known for...
