The current Spartacus Gay Travel Index ranks Georgia number 95 in its ranking, with an overall rating of -2. In categories such as same-sex marriage, persecution, antidiscrimination laws or transgender rights, the country only scores in a single case with a positive rating. All others are either 0 or negative. Although homosexuality has been legal in Georgia since 2000, it is taboo in large parts of the country with far-reaching consequences for lesbians, gays and queer people in the country. For my article “LGBTQ + Georgia” on Couple of Men, I have looked more closely at the current situation of

New York doesn’t end with New York City’s borders. During our trip to the Big Apple prior World Pride 2019, we traveled north to the heart of New York State, the Mid-Hudson Valley region. Although we have been overwhelmed with a welcoming environment, a calmness and gay-friendliness, we have asked ourselves, how can we introduce to you the heart of New York State the best? Because, you know, New York is New York, right? Well, not quite…

The best of LA Pride in West Hollywood 2019. It was finally time for our first Gay Pride Festival in summer 2019. After our winter premiere in January at Whistler Pride in Canada, we’ve successfully attended Los Angeles Pride and its colorful queer parade through West Hollywood along Santa Monica Boulevard.

Probably one of the gay-friendliest ways to explore Southern Africa. It is hard to find the right words to describe our first ever Africa experience, especially because we choose a completely new way of traveling for us by boarding a train from Rovos Rail. Starting at the Namibian Atlantic coast in Walvis Bay, we traveled on railway tracks through Namibia entering South Africa on our way to Pretoria, South Africa’s capital city. Our nine-days train journey through endless no-mans land, rural inhabited savannah regions, windy sand dunes and the protected National Parks of Namibia turned out to be one of

During our nine days Namibia South Africa Train Safari with Rovos Rail, we had the chance to visit one of the most spectacular sights of Namibia, the dunes and desert of Sossusvlei. To get there is a real African adventure on itself which starts with a bus drive from the Pride of Africa train to the Namibian capital city Windhoek early in the morning. After a short city tour visiting the Independence Memorial Museum, we arrived at the Eros Airport for our one hour flight to the Sossusvlei Dunes in the Namib Desert.

During our nine days Namibia South Africa Train Safari with Rovos Rail, we had the chance to visit one of the biggest National Parks in Africa. Etosha particularly known for its rich life stock including Elephants, Southern white and south-west black Rhinos, Giraffes, Zebras, Kudus and a diverse population of birds like Ostriches and Kori bustards, is located in the Northern part of Namibia, the southwestern African country. Etosha National Park itself is continuously under protection for poachers and other animal threatenings to guarantee a healthy and balanced environment for the animals and vegetation.
