Your Paris Winter Getaway

By Bill Malcolm*

Winter is the perfect time to visit Paris.

The crowds are gone. The weather is not as

cold as many U.S. cities. Since you will be

spending a lot of time in museums, it does

not matter anyway. Plus, Paris has a great

gay scene and a gayborhood (The Marais).

Getting There

I snagged a great low fare on Delta Airlines.

The service was exceptional—and

everything was free. Free hot dinner and

breakfast, free headsets, free blankets and

pillows, free eyeshades, and more.

Once in Paris, hop on the commuter rail

to town, the RER-B then take the Metro to

get to your hotel from the Gare du Nord

Station.

Where to Stay

I stayed at The Moxy, a new Marriott brand

geared for millennials. The rate was very

reasonable (it varied by day with one day at

just 93 Euros or around $110). It is located

near the Marais in the Bastille District

and near no less than 3 Metro stations.

You can walk to many of the major attractions

or hop on the subway. Two nearby

stores (Franprix) have everything you need

including salad bars, hot sandwiches, and a

great selection of wine.

Nightlife

The bars are mostly in the Marias. Bears

will of course like the Bears’ Den. The

Open Café serves food and is a lot of fun.

Sly Bar has a great happy hour and karaoke

on Mondays and Tuesdays. The Raidd

bar has a shower show. You can dance the

night away at Le Depot.

What to do

The first day I walked around the historic

Marais District. Like many gayborhoods, it

has been gentrified and is now full of highend

stores as well.

The second day visit the Eiffel Tower,

the Arc de Triomphe, walk along the

Seine River, and explore the shops of the

Champs-Elysees. Then visit the new Leonardo

da Vinci exhibit at The Louvre.

The third day explore the Natural History

Museums, the zoo (Le Zoo du Jardin des

Plantes), the Indoor Tropical Gardens, the

Botanical Gardens, and then walk back to

the hotel. There is also a farmer’s market

on Sundays in the Bastille District where

you can find local delicacies including pig’s

feet, French cheeses, Paella, and every kind

of pastry and bread you could want.

I liked the new Liberation Museum (Musee

de la Liberation de Paris) which chronicles

the German occupation of France.

Day four go to visit Montmartre and the

Sacred Heart Cathedral. Great views of

Paris. Be sure and visit the Montmartre

Museum as well and the associated Renoir

Gardens.

Where to eat

Grab coffee at Alma Coffee. Don’t ask for

milk or cream in your coffee. The French

don’t use it and don’t drink (although they

eat a lot of cheese).

Ma Bourgogne has great steak and fries (in

the Morais).

Travel Tips

• Your ATM card works at French

banks and they don’t charge a withdrawal

fee.

• Many of the museums are free the

first Sunday of the month in the winter.

• Paris is seven hours ahead of Chicago

so the jet lag is a hassle. Try to check

into your hotel early but wait until 3 to take

a nap. On the way home, stay up late at

home to re-adjust.

• The Euro is worth slightly more

than the U.S. dollar.

• Tips are included at restaurants.

• Buy a 10 ticket pack of Metro tickets

and save.

• Turn off your phone and put it in

Airplane mode. Shut off all data for all

your apps too. Otherwise you will face

roaming charges from French carriers

which can be quite high. Most places have

free internet so you can stay connected that

way.

• Most locals speak some English but

if you can, try to start the conversation in

French.

For more information and travel ideas

Paris has a number of LGBTQ publications

all of which have city gay guides. Qweek

has a lot of ideas especially for nightlife

(Qweek.fr) along with maps of the neighborhoods.

Strobo Magazine has a great

map of the nightlife (strobomag.com).

Tribu is another great publication also with

a map.

ParisInfo.com has travel tips as well and

you can visit them at the Hotel de Ville

(City Hall) in the Marias.

You can’t beat a winter visit to gay Paree.

LGBTQ value travel columnist. He

resides in Indianapolis and his column is

and also found on the IGLTA travel blog.

THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT - HOW ARTISTS ARE RESPONDING

Donald Trump as President of the United

States has caused more upheaval in this

democracy than any previous president

or any other political individual in U.S.

history. He has caused much anxiety and

angst even before he was elected to the

presidency by the electoral college, with

at least a five million deficit of actual

votes cast. Trump threatened many

artists and other individuals even before

his inauguration and following. His

bullying, intimidation, attempts to revive

libel laws and attempting to revoke

T.V. licensees, and, to sue individuals

who criticized him gained him no

friends among performing artists of all

categories.

Artists are historically the first to react

to tyranny, repression, bigotry, and

racism. There are at least 39 known

musicians who have complained about

or refused Trump to use their music

in his campaigns and rallies. Among

them is Elton John who objected to

Trump using "Tiny Dancer", and, "Little

Rocket Man", at his rallies. although

Elton John did perform at Trump's third

wedding to Melania, he fell out with

Trump after hearing his initial campaign

speeches. Others include Neil Young,

for Trump's use of "Rocking In The Free

World" although he had the rights to use

the music. Even deceased musicians,

George Harrison's Estate rebelled against

the use of "Here Comes The Sun", in

Trump's inauguration. Others who

have protested Trump in their concerts

and other performances include: Adele,

Beyonce, Cher, Kendrick Lamar, R.E.M.,

Madonna, and, John Legend, to name

only a few who rejected Trump as an

uncouth individual and as president.

Visual artists working with varied media

from drawing, painting, sculpture and

other in-between materials have been

responding to Trump's incompetence

and bigotry for the past 3+ years.

too numerous to list, possibly the one

Hatsune Miku is back this year with a new

design for the winter season of Hokiado in

Japan. This character variation of Hatsune

Miku is called "Snow Miku".

Each year, the character design for one of

Japan's famous pop star/VIRTUAL DIVAS

is chosen through fan-made submissions

with a new theme each year. Submissions

already happened for this year and were

up for votes on Goodsmile Company's

website, while submissions for artwork are

submitted to Piapro. The results this year

were announced at one of Hatsune MIku's

concert, The Magical Mirai 2019.

Here are some of the designs that were

voted upon fans.

~Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle, WA)

March 12 – 15, 2020 Registration Soon

~Sakura Con (Seattle, WA) April 10 – 12 –

2020, Registration Coming soon

This year's winner is design number 3! The

main visual for “SNOW MIKU 2020” is the

work of illustrator “Hanekoto”.

Hanekoto illustrated a natural landscape

of Hokkaido with animals living there,

and SNOW MIKU in a marching bandlike

costume cheerfully playing a music

instrument. This is a cute and lively

marching band of the forest, which lets its

music resonate in winterly Hokkaido.

THE LAST WORD

America can't seem to get to freedom - Part 2

The great debate will continue because we

wont let go of the rotted beliefs of the past

to enjoy the fruits of the future. We discover

something, then we scream in fear and ban it

and then we decide it is OK. Then a miracle is

declared. I would argue man has done most of

the heavy lifting. And that is my point really.

How can you frighten a man whose

hunger is not only in his own cramped

stomach but in the wretched bellies of

his children? You can't scare him – he

has known a fear beyond every other.

John Steinbeck

Man considers himself a sinner. We drive each

other mad with it, self-flagellation generally

is hitting oneself with a whip as part of a

religious ritual like Gay S&M really, but its

just not the gays but others mostly who feel

constant pressure to prove themselves worthy.

Dads work hard to earn the bread, Moms do

things out of a labor of love, Philanthropists

give until it hurts, all others take. This is but

one of our long held non-mailable beliefs.

The results almost universally made worse by

the indifferent fixes of the ruling class. Simply

because the ruling class has not ever once

needed fixes. That is maybe, until now.

Will Trump dismantle White

nationalism while trying to build a

wall?

When the Mayor Pete and some others might

say what comes after Trump. Many in the

minority community have valid concerns. The

we get left out biggest concern.

I give you a cautionary tale of how Hitler put

gay men and women in the camps to suffer

along side the other undesirables, only to

suffer again by being forced to wear a pink

triangle intended as a badge of shame. But a

badge reclaimed by the LGBT community as

a symbol to unite us in our struggles against

continued discrimination. Those that know

and understood we were not welcome. Later

when WWII was ended and the camps

liberated. But not the gays, we got sent back to

jail.

We endured when Alan Turin, one credited

with ending the war was later tried and

convicted of being a homosexual. Turned to

suicide.

We endured again when we had to listen to

Anita Bryant, a beloved American singer turn

into an anti-gay rights activist to the clamor of

gay rights.

So when a person asks to be President

We have a new liberal majority, one that is today, we are well served to remember John

poised to make epic progressive changes. All Steinbeck and ask not who, but where they

this in an age when technology is moving at stood for us. If you could know that Paine,

the speed of light. An 18 year old has already Marx, Jefferson, Lenin and now Trump were

consumed more data then the above average results, not causes, you might survive. But

boomer. 1967 now sounds like the dark ages, in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing

but it was the world, to those who lived it. The wrath. In the souls of the people the grapes of

real headline should be

wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing
