Happy Pride! With this international greeting, lesbians, gays, intersexual, transsexual and queer people, as well as their friends and allies, are marching side by side demonstrating various LGBTQ+ Pride parades for equality, acceptance, and equal love. But what does PRIDE for the LGBTQ+ community actually mean and stand for? Why are we using the abbreviation LGBTQ+? And why is a Coming Out for queer people so important and really still necessary? We are giving answers to these and additional questions on our Gay Couple Travel Blog Couple of Men.
MUNICH: The 4-star hotel was our accommodation for the 4-days trip to Munich this summer with enough space to play games, to dance to DJ sets, and to work in an LGBTQ+ welcoming environment.

Queer Couple Stories
By sharing their stories, we get to understand the daily lives of couples that are running a business together, that are activists for freedom and equality together, that are facing everyday problems together or that simply are what they actually are, two people in love. This is why we use Queer Couple Stories on our Gay Couple Travel Blog Couple of Men to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ couples and their situations with the goal to change the perception and acceptance in our society. We want them to be seen – by sharing their stories.
