Couple of Men – Gay Couple Travel
Yes, that’s us, Karl and Daan from Europe writing, blogging, and posting in English and German (as one of the few German Gay Travel Blogs). We want to give you first a short heads up about our blog which is aiming to be a supporting gay travel source especially, but not only, for gay couples. After celebrating our 8th-anniversary in March 2021, our future together has just begun. From the first trip to Vietnam on, we are eager to share the best gay travel tips out of an adventurous couple of men’s eyes with luxurious accommodations, exciting experiences such as zip-lining or white-water rafting along the way, and Gay Pride Parades all around the world. Because in our opinion, the fight for equality just started. In the end, love wins. We are counting on your support to make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.
LGBTQ+ & Gay Travel Bloggers 2021
But before we start with our top list of the best LGBTQ+ and gay travel blogs, we just wanted to clarify one thing: we only include LGBTQ+ and gay travel sources of bloggers we have actually met during our travels. We know there are many more out there, but authenticity is key for us, especially for this list. But please comment and send your favorites in as well, so we can meet up with them on our next trip or put them in another blog article of Couple of Men as a source. Happy traveling everyone!
Onceuponajrny: The Lesbian Photo Bloggers
And then, there was our trip to Berlin in 2018 for Gay Pride CSD Berlin when we finally met our Dutch lesbian twins, Roxanne, and Maartje from Onceuponajrny. We adore their blog and especially their photography sparking joy on every single image. Besides that, they are lovely to hang out and travel with (and to dance the night away). We were so happy to travel with them to New York and Sweden last year. And now we became neighbors in our wonderful hometown Amsterdam.
Best Buddies for life – beyond gay travel blogging. We met Stefan and Sebastian for the first time in Vancouver two years ago. We can proudly say, that we developed a good friendship with them after some winter fun on the slopes in Whistler and some cocktails at the Gay Winter Pride parties. Last spring, they visited us in Amsterdam and stayed for over a week at our place, eager to explore everything about “our” Amsterdam. One thing for sure: Everything they do will be shared on Social Media – if you like it or not! #bestiesforever
The Globetrotter Guys – Party Bloggers
Our first encounter with gay travel bloggers Sion and Ben from The Globetrotter Guys was during our first trip to the US-American state of Illinois. We met them during Chicago Pride, the colorful LGBT event in the city of wind. The guys are based in the UK focusing on sharing their experiences of circuit festivals, pride, and other LGBT events.
Whatwegandidnext: The Lesbian Beauty Bloggers
The two beauties, Whitney and Megan from the travel blog whatwegandidnext are as cute and lovely to have them around. We met them in 2018 in Stockholm, pre-checking the Swedish city for gay-friendliness just before Euro Pride 2018. The two girls are based in Windsor, UK writing, posting, blogging, and vlogging about their lives as married wives and openly gay travelers. Part of their story is traveling as a physically handicapped in public and on social media. We love their love hoping to travel with them very soon again!
OutwithRyan: The Queer Blogger
And of course, we cannot miss our favorite queer traveler and influencer queen Ryan. We met this wonderful crazy person in Stockholm as well and reunited with him on the first Open Sea Cruise in Summer 2018. Professional, creative, and simply adorable to hang out with, especially together with his boyfriend Andrei. His work focuses on vlogging and creating YouTube videos about his experiences abroad as a queer traveler in all his rainbow-colored facets on his blog, YouTube, and Instagram. We will meet him and his boyfriend again in New York and cannot wait to take some more fun photos together with them!
Dopesontheroad: The Lesbian Blogger
We met Lindsay from Dopesontheroad, in 2018 in Toronto for the first time and instantly had a click. Together with Lindsay’s ex-partner Meg, the four of us have a similar way of traveling, being unable to put the camera away for just two seconds. Besides their lesbian travel blog, Lindsay shares their travel story on Instagram and Pinterest. We finally reunited in 2019 in March in Berlin and in May in New York talking and talking and talking for hours about our work and about our lives as openly gay travelers and LGBTQ+ activists.

The Gay Globetrotter: The Canadian Gay Blogger
We met Bailey, the gay globetrotter for the first time in New York as well, and had such a fun time exploring the city and gay bars in Hell’s Kitchen, Greenwich Village, and Chelsea. The Vancouver-based world traveler seems to be a little shy in the beginning, but he turns out to be so much fun to hang up with. His blog is all about traveling, food, wine, and gay stuff. We hope to meet him soon again. Maybe when we are in Vancouver again the next time before or after Whistler Pride?

27 Travels: The lesbian New Yorker Bloggers
Two lesbians in love, traveling the world - but they call New York City home. We met the two lovely cuties during our travels to New York for the IGLTA convention in April 2019. They became our New York guides for two days showing us their favorite Street Art in Soho and beyond. We also took them to the Top of the Rock, the viewing platform on top of the Rockefeller Center where we enjoyed a stunning view over Manhattan. As cat owners ourselves, we had so much to talk about and to laugh... We cannot wait to see and travel with them again!
