Gay Summer Vacation Travel Essential

While you might think the list for a gay vacation would be done once you put “Condoms”, “Lubes” and “Hairspray” on, in all truth – that list is way longer than you can even imagine.
We all know looking as hot as gays do takes a lot of effort, commitment, careful planning and a bunch of the entire range of best product – so bare with us and get the exclusive peek into the vacation list of essentials every gay is religiously committed to.
Needs and musts

It doesn’t really matter for how long you are staying, you simply must have your beauty kit with you – no, we’re not being coy nor we’re trying to suggest gays are going full on Kim K on daily basis, but we’re just being objective and rational – going anywhere without your cosmetics is like going to a desert without a bottle of water – absolutely crazy and anxiety-prone!
Your beauty kit should have all the essentials you use on daily basis, nothing you haven’t actually been using for a while (but have it in your beauty cabinet). Day crème, hydrating crème, moisturizer, sunblock, night crème and brow and beard gels are somewhat the base; depending on your style, you’ll probably need the hair gel/spray too, concealer (for when you’ve spent the whole night partying and you simply have to show up on that early breakfast the next day) and chopstick. Then, there’s tweezers, brow and beard combs, nail clippers and wax, together with your toothbrush, floss, teeth whitener and breath freshener (either spray or the liquid one).
Last but not least – lubes, condoms, and every other thing in that domain you normally use should be in that cosmetics kit you are bringing to your vacation.
Needless to mention you should be bringing medicine/vitamins you take daily, along with your allergies crèmes. Pack a few band-aids, too (although, unless you are traveling to the wild forests of Amazonia, you’ll have a pharmacy around to buy all the medicine you might need).
Gadget life for the fab snaps

Going on a vacation and not bringing your camera (you’ll obviously VSCO later) is absolutely insane. Pack it along with the charger for both the camera and your phone, and bring your video camera, too. Would any of the events you attend be as cool if you didn’t have them on camera?
Depending on how hooked you are to all those gadgets, you are allowed a few slips. If this vacation came as a breather from the drab office life, forget the tablet – in that case, just bring your phone, both regular and travel charger, the above-mentioned cam stuff and you are good to go.
Clothes that kill

Born this way, no – not really! Is it the gay gene, the amazing ability to copy out the trends, the good eye for colors and materials – God knows! But looking as fab as 90% of gays do is no piece of cake.
The fact you are going on a vacation doesn’t mean letting loose; in fact, you have to make it your business to bring the clothes that make you feel the sexiest, most confident and gorgeous.
(Check out fab and emancipating LGBT tees for LGBT by LGBT at Equalitee PH.)
The first step to packing rapidly and still not forget any of the key pieces is to show appreciation for the fancy packaging your super amazing clothes is going to be folded into. Yes, we are talking about opting for fancy, stylish luggage that’s at the same time extremely practical for packing.
The second step is, obviously, choosing the clothes to bring.
From all those pants, shirts, shorts, amazing accessories like hats, belts, necklaces and other adding elements, to jackets, capes, and footwear – you have to pack it all. No, not the entire closet but a few (no more than six or seven) outfits that bring out the best in you. Obviously, you’ll bring clothes that agree with the number of days you are staying – no need to exaggerate, really.
A useful tip that works for everyone is to make your outfit combos while still at home and make a photo of them – so when you get to your destination, just swipe through your phone and you’ll know what to combine for the day. If you don’t want to over-pack, you can always bring pieces that combine well together – that way you are saving time and luggage space!
Well, have fun on your trip and don’t forget to Instagram it all!
