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.

It was a perfect pick of date since it was the right weekend to attend the 43rd edition of the Castro Street Fair in San Francisco. Rainbow flags all over the neighborhood, colorful street decorations around Castro Theater,

While traveling around Cambodia, she met Jason and Tola, an Australian-Cambodian gay couple living in Siem Reap.

Tips and highlights for a gay city weekend in New York City during World Pride 2019, the biggest gay pride event ever to commemorate the Stonewall Riots in 1969. A Weekend in New York City – We must admit that this has been on our gay travel to-do list for a long time.

And so we follow in the footsteps of LGBTQ+ activists around the city of New York,

Do you still remember MySpace? Well, for some of today’s longterm relationships it was the place to meet likeminded people long before dating apps and even Facebook.

We have mentioned it a few times already when talking about our favorite LGBT and gay-friendly places to go in Amsterdam. There is one gay bar we love most: a lovely, cozy, and always crowded LGBT location in the Jordaan, the heart of the Dutch capital city. And we are not the only gay guys coming here regularly. Bears, otters, and queers from all around the world are going to PRIK for the Friday after-work drinks and weekend beers before going out in Amsterdam’s diverse nightlife. But the award-winning “most popular gay bar of the Netherlands” has its own, unique
