Lesbian & Gay @ Prime-Time

My decision to add Lesbian & Gay Tours for Seniors to the Take My *Mother Please portfolio of services comes from having loved and traveled the world with my darling partner of thirty-five years–now my legally-married spouse–Wendy Dallas, and having recognized that not only is the world coming out of the closet but so, too, is the travel industry.   To learn more >>
