Gay Travel: Visiting Buffalo, New York
Often overlooked, but ever-present, is Buffalo's gay scene. Once again Torontonians are tuning into Buffalo's underground scene - a scene that might not be as underground as we may believe. This past summer I was talking to a couple of women after the Pride Festival who told me that they don't judge the alternative scene in Buffalo by the number of gay bars (as they once did).

The reason? Being a bit older, the one woman expressed that they enjoy the freedom to pick and choose any public bar or restaurant to frequent, unlike in years past when they only felt welcome and comfortable in alternative designated establishments. In those days many gays would sport an identifiable tattoo on a part of the body, that would then be covered up by clothing or an accessory such as a watch when not in a gay-friendly club.

Times are much different today, and although Buffalo may not be the most gay-friendly city around, I believe that our city has come a long way. Apparently there is a writer for Toronto's Outlooks Magazine who feels the same way. In a recent travel article, Bryen Dunn wrote about spending a weekend in Buffalo, starting with a Megabus ride to the Avant, before heading over to Allentown to investigate the restaurant scene and the alternative bars.
