Family Vacations Rides Wave of Gayby Boom ( Gay Family Vacations)
Windy City Times ^

Posted on 11/10/2003 10:15:56 AM PST by Hillary's Lovely Legs

Media icon Rosie O’Donnell has expanded her reach to include gay family vacations.

R Family Vacations was founded by Rosie and her partner, Kelli O’Donnell and travel entrepreneur Gregg Kaminsky. R Family Vacations introduces the very first all-gay and lesbian family vacation packages.

“We’re creating vacations where gays and lesbians can bring their kids, their friends, and their parents. And, this is the first cruise that will cater to both gays and lesbians,” said Gregg Kaminsky.

Both O’Donnell and Kaminsky stopped by the Windy City Times offices when they were in town for a travel event.

“This is not a party cruise,” Kaminsky said. “We are taking over the whole ship—1,000 families, starting from New York. There are 10 restaurants, entertainment, and much more.”

“The ship has an amazing kids program,” said O’Donnell. “It has a camp.” She is quick to note that adults will not be bored—there are several theaters and even Broadway shows, with smaller venues for gay comics.

So far, their gender balance is around 50/50, which excites the co-gender company. “We were worried that it would be more females,” O’Donnell said. “But our ads have been balanced. The connection we all have is family—and that is not male or female.”

There will also be children of all ages, and people who both had their children during heterosexual marriages, as well as gays and lesbians who are adopting or having their own children. Basically, with 1,000+ families, and a huge cruise ship, there will be something for everyone. Even heterosexual siblings and parents—who, on other cruises, might have felt quite out of place.

It’s “R Family” and that means a place where everyone is finally welcome, the company founders stated in a press release.

This innovative cruise line experience includes educational programming for kids and adults provided by The Family Pride Coalition and will include workshops, round-table discussions and panels.

As if these poor children aren't indoctrinated enough at home and school.

Is 'gender' somehow different for gays than straights? Is it because some have their 'gender' altered?

That's a company that I don't want to see excited.

I feel sorry for any kids who are dragged onto these trips.

Fantasy Island, where the fantasy is that there's nothing wrong with what they're doing.

Um... how much do they have budgeted for cleaning up and disinfecting the entire ship after the cruise is over?

Would YOU want to spend some intimate time in a Jacuzzi knowing that the week before it was inhabited by shemales and nancy boys ?

I don't think they meant "Gayby" Boom -- I think it's supposed to be "Gay/Bi" Boom.

That's what happens when a story is phoned in.

I'll bet there will be a lot of torpedoes loose there.

Announcement to all passengers- "Do not eat the chocolate fudge..." I repeat- "Do not eat the chocolate fudge..." There is a bad batch going around. That is all...

Oh. I guess pronounced, "Gay-bee"? How clever.

Who would know that? Really. I thought I was up to speed on this gay stuff, but I guess not.

So homophobes won't accuse them of 'sticking it in our faces'?

If all families are the same, why do gay homosexual families need gay homosexual vacations?

Access to recreational sex and teaching their children how to behave like homosexuals.
