Tourists Behaving Badly While Abroad
In this episode of Queer & Far, Shae Nahnigans shares a few stories and videos of tourists, predominately American and British tourists, behaving badly while traveling abroad. We discuss the sense of American Exceptionalism and entitlement while traveling and how we may have worn out our welcome as tourist since the *45 presidency (*45 name is always bleeped on Queer & Far).
