Houston First In Race to Gaily Cruise the Amazon

Nobody's celebrating Pride month quite like Concierge Travel, the Houston-based GLBT cruise agency. They just announced the first gay cruise on the Amazon is scheduled to set sail, reported USA Today. So grab your breathable cotton and organic dolphin biscuits, because Cher is waiting on the Lido Deck.

The seven-night excursion will take place on a 24-passenger luxury river boat. Highlights include a fishing trip, jungle walk, and monkey and dolphin expedition.

Concierge Travel leads cruises all over the world designed for the GLBT community, from Turkey to South Africa. Every year, they donate 20 percent of their proceeds to GLBT charities, according to their web site.

The first voyage to the Amazon is scheduled for October of next year, so you still have time to get ship-shape. Never been on a gay cruise? Concierge didn't return phone calls by press time, but we found this handy blog to help clear up any confusion of what you may want to pack:

Bon voyage!
