Wichita is the largest city in Kansas and located in the south-central part of the state. The city began as a trading post on the Chisholm Trail in the 1860s and was incorporated in 1870. Wichita is an area center of trade, culture, and media with several large entertainment venues, museums, parks, and theaters. Wichita lies in the northern limits of North America’s humid subtropical climate zone and typically experiencing hot, humid summers and cold, dry winters. You might not think of Kansas as a typical destination to visit, let alone as a gay-friendly one, but we found it to be very welcoming and there was even a small LGBT artist exhibition going on at the time of our visit (although it didn’t make it into our videos).
Speaking of which, you can can see the first episode (above) focused on the hotels and restaurants we experienced during our visit. It includes the Hotel at Old Town, Aloft Wichita Northeast, Piatto Neapolitan Pizzeria, The Anchor, and Ya Ya’s Eurobistro.
The second episode (below) focused on the attractions we saw and the activities we did while there. It includes the Old Cowtown Museum, Wichita Art Museum, The Golden Girls at Roxy’s Downtown, Exploration Place, and Keeper of the Plains.
Our itinerary was put together with help from Visit Wichita and here are some of the photos I shared on Instagram from the area:
I also did a video from our first hotel talking about pushing the gender agenda… with chicken! Have we gone too far with mixing genders when a famous restaurant is making a female country singer played the role of a famous businessman? You’ll find the answer there! And a video from our second hotel where I had abath time debate with my boyfriend so be sure to check those out too and subscribe to my YouTube channel while you’re there for more fun videos from our travels!
