Gay-owned Karnelund Krog & Rum – our gay couple hotel and restaurant review. Close your eyes and imagine yourself on a Swedish farm with apple trees full of juice apples surrounded by a wide golden cornfield. That is how we can describe the Scania landscape and that’s where we spent our last night. But not just somewhere. We stayed in a gay couple owned and operated farm hotel with southern Swedish charm and welcoming atmosphere. Gay couple Janne and Peter converted the historic cottage and buildings into a quaint hotel and restaurant.

Kivik’s gay Cake Cowboy. The third stop on our 5-days road trip around South Sweden was Kivik, a locality in Österlen, the southeastern part of Scania (Skåne). This picturesque village with its small harbor is simply perfect to take long walks, enjoy some of the cider the region is famous for and enjoy some freshly caught seafood by sunset. But Kivik is even more. It is home to a very special person of the LGBTQ+ community who has his own story of pride, acceptance and gay life to tell. Yes, we are talking about the Cake Cowboy Markus Lundqvist,

Gay-friendly Review of The Vault Hotel in Helsingborg. The next stop on our South Swedish road trip after Mölle was the harbor town Helsingborg. The second biggest city of Scania (Skåne) is known for its beautiful old town, the ferry connection over the Øresund to Denmark and is, in fact, an important industrial location. We arrived in Helsingborg in the early afternoon checking-in at The Vault Hotel just around the corner from Helsingborg’s City Hall.

A journal of our 4-day Gay City Trip to Malmö during Pride Weekend. Did we already mention, that we love Sweden? The Scandinavian country is one of our favorite European gay travel destinations that is currently ranking on the top position of this year’s Gay Travel Index 2019 together with Canada. But besides this encouraging data, we experienced an ongoing welcoming and LGBTQ+ friendly environment be it in the bigger cities of Stockholm or Malmö or in the countryside of the South Swedish county Skåne.

Our best photos and video of the Malmö Pride in 2019. Lucky us, we were able to attend the 25th years anniversary of (Gay) Pride in Malmö during our summer adventure to South Sweden. Since 1995, the formerly known as the Rainbow Festival Malmö celebrates equality, love, and respect for everyone. According to malmo.com, the LGBTQ+ festival expected more than 15.000 participants getting ready for World Pride 2021.

A Gay Couple City Weekend Barcelona, the place to be in Europe’s warm South along the Mediterranean Sea. A vibrant city in Spain full of historical treasures like the Casa Milà (La Pedrera), a lively beach atmosphere, the red cable car cabins and a cultural life with museums, opera, and theater. We spent a long gay couple city weekend in the home of Gaudí in summer time exploring Mediterranean cuisine, spectacular views, and unexpected free open-air opera highlights. We didn’t even try to see all of the city since even a long weekend trip is not enough to see all

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

f you would want to be part of every Gay Pride and CSD in Germany, Europe and the whole world in 2019, you basically would have to take off from January to December. Because in uncountable cities in Europe and worldwide, the LGBTQ + community demonstrates and celebrates for equality, love, tolerance and understanding wearing colorful rainbow colors dancing, laughing and showing pride of who they really are. Additional to that, lesbians, gays, queers, transsexuals and intersex people celebrate in 2019 the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots on Christopher Street in New York. Equipped with posters, rainbow flags, whistles
