Press Media Publications: Gay Pride, FAM & Press Trips

We started our blog in Winter 2016 and recognize and incredible growth in followers and an increasing demand for openly gay travel bloggers for gay pride all over the world. Additional to that gay travel not only means gay parties, pride parades, and gay cafés. The independent LGBT traveler is nowadays much more interested in every gay-friendly way of exploring unknown places in unknown countries.

But the most important thing is authenticity and real life. We are receiving daily fan messages with compliments about how real, how authentic, and how much we are like our best friends. And exactly that is what makes us different, special, real.

During our press trips to Stockholm, Helsinki, the Gay Cruise, and Tel Aviv, we could show the real beauty of our world behind the mostly superficial mask of perfection. We would love to show that of every place we go, every pride we participate and every adventure trip to nature we are doing.
