About the Trip
Argentina and Uruguay both serve as leaders in LGBTQ+ issues in Latin America. Uruguay played host to the 2016 LGBTI Human Rights Conference and was named the most LGBT friendly country in Latin America.

  • Gain an in depth understanding of challenges to equal opportunity & self-expression in Latin America at DAIA, the Delegacion de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas, which aims to fight discrimination & protect human rights
  • Enjoy an inclusive Shabbat experience at Comunidad NCI-Emanu El, the first religious institution to host a same-sex Jewish marriage in Latin America

Inside Jewish Argentina & Uruguay 2015 alumna, Nicky Auster blogged about her experience here.

About JDC in Argentina & Uruguay: Argentina is home to Latin America’s largest Jewish population, the 7th largest Jewish population in the world. A prosperous community for most of its history, which dates back to the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions, Argentina’s Jews were devastated by the 2001 economic crisis that turned middle-class families into “the new poor” virtually overnight.

JDC responded immediately and efficiently to the Jewish community’s sizeable needs, leveraging decades-long partnerships to expand existing relief services to aid those hardest hit by the crisis. More than 10 years later, with the local Jewish institutions’ overall health largely restored, JDC has resumed its historic role in Argentina as a community-development expert.

About JDC Entwine: Entwine is a one-of-a-kind movement for young Jewish leaders, influencers, and advocates who seek to make a meaningful impact on global Jewish needs and international humanitarian issues. We do this by offering service experiences in Jewish communities around the world, educational events and programs, and leadership development opportunities. Entwine is an initiative of JDC, the largest Jewish humanitarian organization in the world. JDC works in 70 countries, specializing in humanitarian aid, Jewish community renewal, and disaster relief.
About Eighteen:22: Eighteen:22 is a global network of Jewish LGBTQ+ and ally changemakers working to advance positive change for their communities and those around them. Eighteen:22 launched in 2015 as a Schusterman Connection Point in Salzburg, Austria.
About JQ International: JQ International builds and strengthens a community that nurtures the healthy fusion of LGBTQ+ and Jewish identities. Established in Los Angeles in 2004, JQ offers an array of social services for individuals and groups, inclusion trainings for Jewish and secular institutions, and a variety of social and educational programs each year.

Aspen Gay Ski Week 2016

Aspen Gay Ski Week 2016

How expensive is the event and is there a way to come that is affordable?

While Aspen can be expensive, the event itself can be affordable with our Black Diamond event pass, which gets you into all events with some exceptions. You may also volunteer for an event pass by emailing volunteer@gayskiweek.com.

Lodging is also a concern and we have many options between Aspen & Snowmass at all price levels. Aspen is a very small town, so any lodging that you pick will be within walking distance of all events except for the Pool Party, everyone has to take transportation to that. Contact one of our lodging experts at Stay Snowmass to find everything from hostel to luxury accommodations Click Here to Book Lodging

How do I get to Aspen?

There are 4 airports within 4 hours of Aspen, Colorado: Aspen/Pitkin Airport  – ASE (10min away), Eagle County Airport – EGE (1.5 hrs away), Grand Junction Airport – GJT (2.5 hrs away) & Denver Airport – DEN (4 hrs away)

All of the airports have their own set of difficulties, if it’s clear weather, Aspen is great however expensive. You can fly into all of these airports and get ground transportation or rent a car one way and drive into Aspen. Be warned, winter conditions will exist…experienced winter drivers only.

Will I need a car once I arrive in Aspen?

No, you can walk almost everywhere and we also have a free bus system between the 4 ski mountains in the area. you can view more information on our bus service at http://rfta.com  We also have cabs and car service available. Most hotels will also have free airport transportation if you choose to fly into Aspen as well as will drive you around town to dinner etc.

What should I pack? ( this we find, is the most important faq!)

Aspen has over 300 days of sunshine a year, so it won’t always be cold. Expect a mix of sun and snow during your trip. It may be cool outside, so bring a warm coat or jacket…but it will likely be warm inside, so you won’t need that heavy alpine sweater your dying to bring. Not saying that you can’t bring it, but if you wear it to dinner or dancing, you will be sweating.

You can wear jeans almost anywhere in Aspen, dress is mostly casual. You can also dress to the nines if you like. We have plenty of fancy stores to shop for that trendy coat or top if you forget anything.

What we don’t have however, is a good place to buy underwear or socks!

Bring a swimsuit for apres ski and for the pool party.

Bring warm boots for walking around town with a lug sole so you don’t slip, leave your loafers and heels at home if you like them. We have snow on the streets at all times.

Do I have to stay at the host hotel, the Limelight in order to attend apres ski?

No, apres ski is free and open to all. They have towels and changing rooms if you choose to use the pool and hot tubs. All hotels in Aspen are within walking distance of the Limelight.

Do you have to be an expert skier or boarder to come to Aspen?

No, we have 4 mountains here all on one lift ticket, with tickets as low as $68 per day with a 4 day pass.

Aspen Mountain – blues, blacks and double blacks (not a beginner mountain)

Aspen Highlands – greens, blues, blacks and double blacks (mostly intermediate and expert terrain)

Buttermilk Mountain – greens, blues, blacks ( a great beginner mountain, but also a lot of great cruising terrain. Also the site of the Xgames, so an amazing terrain park for all of you rippers)

Snowmass Mountain – Something for everyone, by far our biggest mountain and a ton of fun for all!

All four mountains have ski school, rentals, food & beverage and free transfer on the bus

AROSA Gay Ski Week 2016

AROSA Gay Ski Week – The idyllic and gay friendly Swiss resort of Arosa invites you to its eleventh fun-filledLGBT ski week. Since 2005, this lively and colorful week has become one of the biggest Gay and Lesbian winter events in Europe. Arosa, Switzerland; Jan 10-17, 2016

AROSA Gay Ski Week 2016

AROSA Gay Ski Week 2016

Welcome to the 12th Annual Arosa Gay Ski Week – one of the most popular gay ski weeks in Europe!

From January 10th to 17th, 2016 the gay friendly resort of Arosa revs up again for it’s lively and colorful winter Pride festival. Each year, hundreds of gay and lesbian travelers gather for a week of skiing, snowboarding, partying and lounging in the sun at Arosa, which sits at the top of a typical Swiss valley just 2 ½ hours from Zürich. The huge ski area of Arosa-Lenzerheide allows participants from over 30 different countries to enjoy 225km/140miles of slopes with fantastic snow conditions and lots of sunny days in one of Europe’s best skiing domains.

Some of the highlights on the calendar include the welcome cocktail party with La Diva Live, several friendship dinners (for anyone who hasn’t already hooked up with somebody at the welcome party), daily après-ski with DJs, and late bar-nights out.  So many possibilities – so little time!  Fortunately, while on holiday you can turn night into day without feeling guilty, or you might miss the classical concert at the village church, the Swiss fondue fun night with moonlight sledging or the “Splash Pool Party.”

Of course clubbing nights with world-class DJs and go-go dancers, the Drag Ski Race and the closing party at the world’s highest White Party, on top of the Weisshorn at 2’653m / 8’704ft are also on the jam-packed agenda.Snow bunnies can discover the vast ski area in groups, with our friendly Arosa Gay Ski Week team, or take some lessons with one of the experienced ski instructors of the ABC Snow Sport School. The breathtakingly beautiful winter landscape in Arosa should be enough to convince even the most resigned couch potato to chance at least one downhill run… Experienced skiers and snowboarders will not be bored: in addition to the challenging slopes of Arosa-Lenzerheide, they can even book a ski trip to St. Moritz by helicopter!  But non-skiers are not left out: in addition to extensive walking and hiking trails, the Tschugenhütte midday rendezvous can also be reached easily and pleasantly on foot!

Arosa offers accommodations to satisfy all requirements and budgets. In addition to our ten participating 1 to 5-star hotels, we offer a selection of private holiday apartments to suit any and all needs, all gay friendly! Plus, the Event Pass Gold, which is included in our packages at an additional rate, delivers access to all parties, après-skis, and concerts, as well as a 10% discount for the ski pass, 20% discount on ski rental, and free sun-loungers deck chairs at the Tschuggenhütte terrace during every day of the week.

Allegra in Arosa to Europe’s favorite gay ski week! 

Travel – how do I get to Arosa?

Arosa is at the end of the Schanfigg Valley of Canton Graubünden in Eastern Switzerland, between Davos and St. Moritz. Excellent transport connections enable you to arrive at your holiday destination relaxed and ready for the week ahead. It is an easy drive from Zurich to Arosa by car, and the scenic train journey is child’s play: trains go from Zurich Airport to Chur, where you change to the Arosa line. This beautiful, romantic stretch of the journey takes about an hour and is well worth every spectacular moment.

Ibizagaypride será una de las concentraciónes gay más importante de Europa, con una posible asistencia de más de 50.000 personas de 50 nacionalidades distintas durante 5 días para participar en actividades de ocio y de «entretenimiento integral». Las fechas han sido elegidas para celebrarse a continuación del Gay Pride de Madrid de manera que los asistentes aprovechen sus vacaciones y puedan hacer la combinacióm Madrid-Ibiza en dos semanas de actividades, relax y fiestas que nos pondría entre los grandes circuitos de eventos gay del mundo. Ahora ha llegado el momento de ofrecer un evento a la altura de los factores que dan fama mundial a la Isla: Centro histórico Patrimonio de la Humanidad, playas de belleza reconocida internacionalmente, un clima inmejorable, magníficas instalaciones de ocio para todos los estratos económicos y sobretodo gayfriendly; para que la gente no nos elija solo por inercia sino porque quieran vivir una gran celebración actualizada y reivindicativa a favor de la comunidad LGTB.

Puerto Vallarta Pride 2015

May 17, 2015toMay 25, 2015

Puerto Vallarta Pride – For the third consecutive year, Puerto Vallarta will welcome the largest LGBT Pride event in the region: Vallarta Pride. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Nestled between the lush Sierra Madre and the majestic Pacific Ocean emerges Puerto Vallarta, a stunning resort destination that combines the rich Mexican traditions with modern innovation. This melding of Mexican charm with cosmopolitan appeal has seduced the LGBT community through the years. Click here to find more about ACT LGBT A.C. Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta Pride 2015

Puerto Vallarta Pride 2015

Associations, companies and the entire LGBT community have joined together again to organize this event that celebrates the lifestyle diversity of our city in a 7-day festival that will offer arts and culture events, concerts, entertainment, films, fun, lots of partying and our fabulous Pride Parade. Our main events are free to the public and non-profit to once again show the world the best of our accepting and vibrant community.

It is that level of acceptance which has made Puerto Vallarta recognized worldwide as an LGBT mecca, hosting national and international gay visitors and creating a sophisticated culture that is an important artistic, professional, altruistic and economic contributor to the community.

This cultural heritage was adopted by the Vallarta Pride Organizing Committee, which works in conjunction with public and private partnerships and to make our city a player on the world stage of LGBT celebrations.

Vallarta Pride works towards a future without discrimination where we all have equal rights under fair and equal law. We believe we can achieve this through the LGBT events that inspire, commemorate and celebrate our community.


ACT LGBT A.C. was formed by a group of concerned business owners looking for new ways to promote Puerto Vallarta worldwide. Although first working under a different name, the group was founded by Laura Gelezunas of Media Diva International, Tim Wilson of GAYPV, Daniel Gomez of Mijo! Brands, Oscar Moran of RHOM Design and Bill Hevener of BuenFlex Clothing. At a second meeting, the committee added Christian Serrano of Gay Vallarta Bar-Hopping.

From those initial meetings two ideas were born: The need to create a gay business association and to sponsor a Gay Pride event in Puerto Vallarta. The group recognized that the business community at large would not take LGBT business community seriously until there was an organized legal association. Since the community had been unable to come together without conflict in the past, the group decided to hold monthly meetings on what was happening in and around the business development community in Puerto Vallarta. This Group was called GEGPV.

The first meeting was held at Almar Resort Luxury All Suites & Spa on March 4th, 2013. At that meeting volunteers were solicited to form the first Vallarta Pride Committee. Concerned about possible conflicts within the community, the Pride Committee was separated from the business association to function under the name of DFEC (Diversity Fests Events Committee) although the steering committees had shared members.

The Steering Committee of GEGPV set meetings to be held on the second Tuesday of every month. After the second meeting, luncheon and networking components were added. It was realized that there was a need and intrinsic value in just creating time to talk to one another. This time ultimately proved to be deemed highly valuable and very useful to the members. The committee continued to listen to feedback to continue improving on what it could provide to the community. The DFEC page was created on March 23rd, 2013 and the first committee meeting for Pride occurred on March 28th, 2013 at the SETAC offices.

After a tremendous amount of work by the Pride Steering Committee, the first pride weekend was held in Puerto Vallarta from May 24th to 26th, 2013. Subsequently, ACT LGBT A.C. has been continuing its monthly luncheons and continues in its goal of providing a solid and permanent LGBT Business Association.
