In Review: 2015 the Gayest Year

2015 was a historic year for the LGBTQ Community in the US and around the world. Here is a sample of some of the places that moved forward with equal rights:
Luxembourg – 1 January
Pitcairn Islands – 14 May
Guam – 9 June
Chihuahua – 12 June
United States – 26 June
Ireland – 16 November
Nayarit – 30 December
And many more members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual community continue to struggle around the world. Members of the Transgender community saw an increase in visibility and acknowledgment via celebrities who came out either as members of the Trans community, as allies and also due to some very awful murders or suicides, but hopefully the lives lost were not in vain.

2015 also saw the birth of Connextions Magazine en Español with our first issue appropriately titled: ORGULLO, which means PRIDE. We also sponsored some great events worldwide, such as: The 40 Years of Pride in Israel, The HRC Gala in New York City,The Handsome Father organization, Amsterdam’sGay Pride Parade PridestreamThe Torino Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in Italy, The New York Travel Festivalthe LGBT Expo and so much more! 2015 was also the year that Connextions Magazine won 2 media awards. In both cases, we were the only gay travel magazine to have won these awards and we were thrilled to end the year with a big bang!
