Love, our world needs more love. For us, Valentine’s Day on February 14th is the best day to remember how important it is to show your love to the people you hold most dear. It is about love for another human being and to accept, to respect and to embrace its uniqueness. We are happy to share some of our gay love moments from our travels with you on a day that is made for love, romance and time together. If you don’t have a present for your girlfriend, boyfriend or simply the person you love, just give him or her a kiss. In our eyes, a love-kiss is the best way of sharing affection to someone on the most intimate way. Why cannot be every day as full of love as Valentine’s Day? Our plan for 2017: bring equal love to the world and celebrate it every possible moment. See you around the world and don’t forget to travel with us on Instagram #coupleofmen. Enjoy our Valentine’s Day Gay Kisses #lovewins ❤️

Coming Out – Karl’s story of finding his true self. Today, I am 36 years old living together with the man of my life and our tomcat in Amsterdam. I am having a rainbow family with two children together with three wonderful human beings. My parents are proud of who I am, they love and appreciate my partner and support me in anything I am doing. I have a gay brother whom I love very much. And I can see a lot of this wonderful world while supporting LGBTQ+ that are not as blessed as I am with love. But it wasn’t always like that.
Our Baltic Pride 2017 Tallinn Best Powerful LGBTQ Photos – From Soviet Suppression to Powerful Diversity in 2017, or, why do we still need a Baltic Gay Pride Parade in Europe? If you are really thinking that is an appropriate question in 2017, you are right, at least in the first place. But let us tell you, not every LGBTQ+ person living in a European country has the privilege to live a free, out-of-the-closet life like gays lesbians, queer, bi- or transexuals in Amsterdam, London or Madrid not even imagining the right for equal marriage like recently in Germany. Queer people living in the Baltic States Lithuania, Latvia or Estonia, for instance, are facing homophobic threats every day. They desperately want to be who they are, living a life they want to live, being able to love who they want to. Therefore, this year’s Baltic Pride under the motto “United” took place in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Celebrating its 9th edition, Tallinn Pride 2017 was the first Gay Pride Parade in 10 years since it was stopped because members of the LGBTQ+ community has been pelted with eggs, tomatoes and has been physically attacked and beaten up by counter-demonstrators during the parade in 2007. However, Karl and his best friend Sven traveled to Tallinn to support the Baltic Pride Gay Parade, to talk to the LGBTQ+ community and get a feeling how it is to gay travel to Tallinn and Estonia. And let us tell you already right now, the Tallinn Gay Pride Parade 2017 was a great success and exceeded all expectations of the organizers, the over 1800 participants and us gay travelers from Amsterdam. Enjoy our best rainbow photos, videos, and LGBT stories of the Baltic Pride 2017 and see the rainbow colored Tallinn Pride Parade & Festival through a couple of men’s eyes.
These 10 people have made history for the LGBTQ+ Movement. The path in the right direction always starts with a first step usually taken by very brave people who disagree with the given circumstances.

However, there have been many lesbian, gay, transgender and queer people who have taken this first step, helping to make the LGBTQ+ movement what it is today. That’s why in this article on Couple of Men, we’ll introduce you to 10 LGBTQ+ activists who have made significant contributions to the progress of the LGBTQ+ history. All in their own special and personal way.
