The A-Gay Getaway; Travel: Here's the Guide Wannabe Gays Have Been Waiting for. Nick Redman Hits the G Spots


Redman, Nick, The Evening Standard (London, England)


Byline: NICK REDMAN

THE seven ages of gay man: you've come out, gone out, copped off, sworn off, hooked up, grown up and settled down together, just like Elt and David.

Cape Cod: hit Provincetown an upbeat, downplayed colony, less queenysceney, more-Sapphic-centric than Fire Island. That s its appeal for A-gays who prefer cocoa to coke, and rent a cottage on the shore, hitting town should the party mood strike.

Turks and Caicos: homosexuality may be outlawed, but it hasn t kept A-gays from Parrot Cay: 60 muslin-draped, lean, clean suites by Keith Hobbs of Vong-interiors fame. …
