Exclusive | The Out Traveler: Year in Review

2008 has been a big year for LGBT travel and for Out Traveler. In case you missed any of it, here are our picks of the past twelve months!

Our Favorite Feature Stories:
From our Fall 2008 issue, our picks for Life-Changing Trips covered more ground than Marco Polo! Himalayan monasteries, heli-coptering over live lava, Wild West cattle-ranching (who doesn't want to play cowboy?), and more.
For Summer this year, we packed in three of the best Road Trips from the world over: Geneva to Zürich in Switzerland, San Francisco to Los Angeles, and Auckland to Wellington inNew Zealand.

2008 also brought a few new Out Travelers in the fold. We caught up with Carson Kressley in Paris, Barney Frank in Washington, D.C., Armistead Maupin in San Francisco, Michael Cunningham,Jack Pierson, k.d. lang, and Jackie Warner.

We're still in love with the photos (below) for our Fall issue's cover story on the Grand Canyon. If you haven't already, check out our bonus Behind the Scenes Facebook photos!

Reader's Choice Awards 2008:
Our biggest and favorite poll this year doubled in your responses! We also added a Hall of Fame and inducted long-time winners for best Domestic Destination, Hotel Collection, Domestic Airline and All-Gay Tour Operator.

Out Traveler's Online Expansion:
2008 has also seen the multi-media growth of Out Traveler on the web. Now, Out Travelers can follow us on Twitter; tune into our travel playlists on OutTraveler.FM; be fans on Facebook; and get direct updates by Compass.

Also new this year, we've redefined what G.P.S. can stand for with our new gay travel blog!

With so much new activity for Out Traveler this year, it could take awhile to catch up, but for a peek at what we'll be up to in 2009, click here!
