Travel writer Paul Rubio was more than happy to mug a little for the camera while in Atlanta Wednesday pitching his new book.
Rubio, a recovering economist and environmental policy analyst, hit Outwrite Bookstore & Coffehouse to host the local launch party for “Out Traveler: South Florida.” It was the last stop on a publicity tour for the new work, which explores South Florida’s spicy gay culture.
The guide is from the same series published by Alyson Books that includes “Out Traveler: Atlanta,” from local boys Matt Burkhalter and Jordan McAuley. They debuted their version during a similar event in February.
