k.d.lang – Gay Travel and The Gay / Lesbian Traveler

Hot on the heels of her recent new album, WATERSHED, k.d.lang talks to THE OUT TRAVELER about her travel habits!

“I Always Like to Go Places I’ve Never Been”….

k.d.’s travel tips:

Five travel essentials:

I travel so light that it’s insane. I take one bag no matter where I go, no matter how long I go for. So in that is always my passport; my rosewater spray, which I always have to have; my mala [Buddhist prayer beads]; my iPhone . . . and . . . I think I only have four things, that’s how light a traveler I am.


A culture [in Japan] that is dying, unfortunately, is the public baths. I think they are so amazing and such a beautiful part of Japanese tradition. I always seek them out.


Australia is my favorite place to eat, bar none. In Sydney [my favorite eatery is] Longrain, which is a Thai restaurant but very cutting-edge. That’s a great place to eat.

Santa Barbara, Calif.:

I just finished a tour at Santa Barbara. I was finished at 8:30 p.m. and changed my clothes immediately and rushed to La Super-Rica, which is one of my favorite taco stands. Just an amazing place. I usually go to more ethnic, more low-key hole-in-the-wall places.
