Gay Pride Trips

January 2021

GERMANY: Often forgotten, the victims of Nazi Germany also include gay men marked with the Pink Triangle. It is now believed that between 5,000 to 15,000 gay men were sent to concentration camps of whom 3,000 to 10,000 met their deaths as part of the Holocaust. Sarah had the chance to talk to Dr. Alexander Zinn, historian as well as a sociologist from Germany, talking about the LGBTQ+ group of victims of the Holocaust for the International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2021. The article and the interview are part of our queer history series on Couple of Men.

SWEDEN: Is there a gay sauna in Malmö, you might ask? Not exactly. Although many of the local gays consider the Ribersborgs Kallbadhus is THE gay hotspot of the Swedish city – to see and to be seen, and maybe even more, of course. With the monthly event “Queer Kallis”, the traditional house from the late 19th century is finally opening up to the whole LGBTQ+ community, including trans and non-binary sauna fans.

NETHERLANDS: Gay men enjoy a significant amount of social acceptance and freedom in the capital city of the Netherlands – but it has come at the loss of many places and institutions that used to give this city its distinctive gay edges. Nevertheless, there are many places in Amsterdam that still embody the original spirit of the 80s and 90s, and offer experiences that are unique to Amsterdam as a destination. Meeting guys in Amsterdam isn’t hard – but in some places, it’s easier than in others, especially when you’re trying to get laid.
