Ashton's Pride Report
#MyGayPride report: 
Capping off an incredible Friday - with marriage equality celebrations in the office at IGLHRC - Pride in NYC was triumphant. I met friends all over the parade route and danced with the Ali Forney Center & Empire State Pride Agenda. I also attended Pretty Ugly Saturday night and an incredible Pier Dance with Ariana Grande on Sunday.
Oscar Wilde Tours - Italy
Join Oscar Wilde Tours' Italy trip and get a $400 discount! Check out the HuffPo video about it all! You'll learn about Italy's LGBT history, (super gay) artistic heritage and fab cuisine. Led by historian Dr. Andrew Lear, with local guides from Quiiky, Italy's only LGBT travel agency. Mention "Gayography" for the $400 discount. Also, check out Lear's "Gay Secrets of the Met."
Stonewall weekend!
Next up are July 4th celebrations around the country - with a special LGBT twist in Philadelphia where they will celebrate 50 years since the initial marches on Independence Hall. Abroad you can't miss Pride in Madrid - or CSD in Colonge. Otherwise, I hope you'll join me on Fire Island on Saturday for the Invasion - and if you're headed to P-town today watch out for Hillary!
