Tulsa Oklahoma, the next great gay destination?

The Gaycation Travel Show is the product of OUTvoices TV’s partnership with Gaycation Magazine. Host Ravi Roth is seeking to introduce LGBTQ travelers to the best attractions in both cities known for their LGBTQ attractions, like Manhattan or Brighton (UK), and perhaps those LGBTQ travelers might not consider “gay” destinations, like this week’s episode feature, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The fourth episode of The Gaycation Travel Show had host Ravi Roth spending a few days exploring everything Tulsa, Oklahoma has to offer. Ravi explored the art scene, the food scene, the museums, the great outdoors, and even found that the nightlife far exceeded his expectations. Okay, so even after watching the episode, Tulsa may not top your post-COVID vacation list, but you know what? It does have a lot more to offer than you might have guessed!

Tune in to learn about all of the best spots in Tulsa for LGBTQ travelers!

Highlights include:

Hotel Indigo

At Hotel Indigo Tulsa, you will experience the best of downtown, with its locally inspired art and music and creative cocktails and dining experiences.  The 93-room hotel shares its space with bars, restaurants, retail shops, commercial properties, fine dining, an art studio, salon, comedy club, bowling alley and residential developments, so it’s a truly local experience.

Dennis R. Neill Equality Center

The Dennis R. Neill Equality Center supports the LGBTQ+ community of greater Tulsa, and is owned and operated by Oklahomans for Equality. Established in 1995, the Equality Center is one of the largest LGBTQ+ community centers in the region. Boasting a beautiful 18,000-square-foot facility with an event center, the Equality Center offers the community services like a full-service lending library, a wellness center, an art gallery, and much more.

Tulsa Eagle

Enough said. Since 2005, the Tulsa Eagle has been serving Eagle realness. Eagle bars are a brand recognized the world over, but like gay bars everywhere they are on their way to the endangered species list. So be sure to show your love and support to the Eagle here and Eagles everywhere.

Club Majestic

Club Majestic bills itself as Tulsa's premiere dance club. Its location in the heart of the Tulsa Arts District and its great drag shows, dance floor, and multiple bars do go a long way toward promising a great time for any LGBTQ+ visitor.

This episode also touches on many other culinary and cultural delights, so be sure to watch The Gaycation Travel Show’s Tulsa episode!

The Gaycation Travel Show takes viewers on an exhilarating journey to known and off-the-beaten path LGBTQ+ friendly and new places to visit, immersing you in the local queer and not so queer culture of each place we visit. Join host Ravi Roth as he explores new destinations every week traveling around our world with some help from fellow LGBTQ+ travelers who have been there before us.

HIV progress with treatment plans.

By Dr. Thanes Vanig, Founder and Chief Medical Officer at Spectrum Medical Care Center

I saw my first case of HIV when I was a medical student in Bangkok, and it was incredibly sad. I compare the beginning of the HIV epidemic to the COVID-19 pandemic when the disease was an alarming mystery. Patients were locked up in their rooms. We had to wear gowns, gloves, masks, a suit, and full personal protective equipment, just to see them. We were afraid of what we didn’t know.
