About your host

After living and teaching on four continents, I made San Francisco my home several years ago with my (now) husband, and I have haunted the local bars ever since. As a traveler and educator, I love exploring new scenes and sharing my knowledge with others. I've visited gay bars everywhere, from Seoul to Rio, Paris to Cape Town, Oklahoma City to Guiyang, China.

Where you'll be

The Castro is San Francisco's famous "gayborhood"—identifiable by the rainbows literally everywhere.
