self-portraitI just got back from an amazing trip to the Puerto Vallarta area for Pride! I spent a week in that Mexican city and the Riviera Nayarit attending things like a drag derby, the pride parade, and pool parties, as well as going on fun boat rides, staying at great hotels, and eating incredible food!  I love going to Pride festivals and this one certainly didn’t disappoint – I really liked the size of it… not too big like some of the major cities and yet not too small like some of the less gay-friendly destinations.

I also stayed a bit longer to check out some of the Riviera Nayarit region as well, including Nuevo Vallarta, Sayulita, and San Pancho.

The full vlog of my trip is above and here are some of the photos I shared on my Instagram account as well:
