SNOW QUEER FESTIVAL RETURNS IN 2021
Taking place in the north of Spain, Snow Queer Festival is the premier LGBTQ+ ski week in Europe and the only event of its kind in Spain. And in 2021, it will be more inclusive and diverse than ever. Formally the 4-day event called Snow Gay Weekend, the festival has embraced a more diverse name and expanded to one full week of activities including skiing, wellness and relaxation, celebrations plus much, much more. Be sure to save the date, from 8-14 March 2021. This year's event will change locations and will take place at the Panticosa Spa Resort in Huesca hosted by two great, 4-star hotels reserved only for ski week attendees. The ski resort itself has more than 180km of slopes to explore. The event will strictly follow all current health and safety regulations and if the event is forced to cancel due to travel or safety restrictions, you will receive a 100% refund, risk-free.

I wondered how many dreams the dreamcatcher had caught. It couldn’t have been that many: I had only slept for four hours. I thanked the rooster for that. Yes, there was a rooster here, outside my Airbnb “glamping yurt”—the one with the dreamcatcher, where I was trying to sleep. I hadn’t known about the rooster. I’d seen earplugs next to my bed the night before, and thought, “That’s weird.” I sighed, accepted I was awake, unzipped the front of my yurt, and looked out onto the sandy, scrubby yard. There were two dogs, two goats, a litter of piglets, two chickens, and a duck. A baby chicken pooped on my foot. I looked up at the clear, blue Arizona sky and smiled. This was traveling during Covid.
