In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we learn about how, for decades, a one-of-a-kind travel guide opened up the world for gay travelers. Today, historians are using them to create an interactive map of LGBTQIA+ spaces in midcentury America.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
