Travel is like crack for the gays. We want it all the time, and we don’t care how much it costs. But not all of us have the vacation time of a schoolteacher and the budget of a CEO. So when we go on holiday, we want every second to count, whether it’s sitting under an umbrella sipping cocktails on the beach with a Jackie Collins novel or shaking a tail feather at 3:00 a.m. at the local nightclub.
When heading to a new destination, it’s important to research the gay scene. There’s nothing worse than spending six days and seven nights in an ultra-conservative borough or a homophobic archipelago.
That’s why we love Bump! Covering more than three dozen gay destinations worldwide over several regionally-designated DVDs, the experts behind this travel series have done all the research for you – revealing hidden gems, must-see attractions and great places to shop and party in each locale.
Hosts Charlie David (hottie alert!) and Shannon McDonough (woman alert!) take you on an informative whirlwind mini-vacation from the comfort of your super-stylish sofa. Hell, we don’t even care if we’re headed to Vancouver any time soon. Charlie in short-shorts rollerblading around the city is enough to make us wear out the rewind button on the DVD player and never leave the house.
But we will anyway. Because it’s in our DNA. Just like demanding hotels with 800-thread-count sheets and views of the ocean (even in Phoenix).
