||Travel: Damron Guide Turns 40
This article shared 5175 times since Wed Feb 18, 2004
Gina Gatta, the president and editor in chief of the Damron Company, is planning quite a birthday party this March. On Saint Patrick's Day, she and the Damron Men's Travel Guide she publishes will both be turning 40. Officially, the first edition of the Damron Men's Travel Guide rolled off the presses in 1965. It bore the name Bob Damron's Address Book after Bob Damron, a San Francisco bar owner and pioneering publisher, who wanted to record the hundred or so gay-friendly venues he discovered on his many cross-country travels in the early 1960s. Since 1992, Gatta, one of San Francisco's most dynamic lesbian entrepreneurs, has been at the helm of the LGBT travel guide series. The Damron Women's Traveller is the only lesbian guide on the market today and it turns 15 this year.
