Gay Travel USA Tag

Exuberant people celebrating on the street, colorful costumes, kisses, and holding hands and above all the rainbow flag blows. This is what it looks like in the meantime when Gay Pride (also known as CSD in Germany) is celebrated in the big cities of Europe and all around the world. However, it has not always been that easy for the LGBTQ+ community to live out and celebrate their love, affection, and identity. Until then, it was a long and certainly not an easy journey (although the fight for equality isn't over yet either).On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of

Our Photo Story Castro Street Fair San Francisco. The city of the Golden Gate Bridge was a truly inspiring place on the Pacific West Coast. During our first gay travels to the South West Part of the USA, we spent almost a week in the beginning of October in San Francisco, one of our favorite cities of the United States of America. 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,

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. But there is hardly a better year to plan a visit to New York than the anniversary year of the LGBTQ+ community’s first uprisings at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street. 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. It also was the place where the lovely girls from ‘What Wegan did next’ meet each other many years ago. Whitney, a lovely girl from the US-State Kentucky, and Megan from the United Kingdom are a lesbian couple and LGBT entrepreneurs living together with their cute little dogs in Windsor, the UK.

The story of Chris and Gus brings us back to the US, this time to the east coast, to Florida to be more precise. But this isn’t actually the beginning of their story together. Coming from the formerly isolated country of Cuba, the gay couple knows what it means when “traveling makes you free”. Similar to Karl’s home country, former East Germany, going to wherever you want to was a privilege, that not all citizens of the GDR nor Cuba were able to enjoy. But times have changed and Chris and Gus moved together away from the Caribbean island nation

Support LGBT couple operated travel businesses around the world! You might remember our last year’s trip during Pride Month around the United States of America? Among others, we visited the small town Galena in the US-American state Illinois, known to be the second most visited town in Illinois and home to one of the best Main Streets in America. It is also known for its LGBT and gay-friendliness making it to one of the weekend hideaways for the LGBT community. Galena is also the adopted home for gay couple Alex and Geoff Arroyo-Karnish.

Thousand Trails Yosemite Lakes Resort gay-friendly. The Yosemite National Park in California was one of our top highlights we planned for our four weeks road trip around the South West of the United States of America. Looking for a unique glamping accommodation located very close or even in the middle of nature, we found the Yosemite Lakes Resort just a five minutes drive away from the West entrance of Yosemite National Park. The resort includes Yurts, cottages, tents and space for trailers nestled in a valley along a river. We stayed in the Yurt village located on the top of

Our Top 7 Gay Events this year – It seriously looks like the year 2020 is going to be a great year for celebrating LGBTQ+ events worldwide! We chose seven great LGBTQ+ events for the first year of the twenties that caught our attention and which we would like traveling to this year. Are you ready for the first edition of the Pride of the Americas or the EuroPride in Greece? Or would you rather scream and sing along with 42 new songs that will compete for the European Song Contest crown in Rotterdam? What about an international festival in

Pure LGBTQ+ Winter Fun worldwide when participating in the Top 13 Best Gay Ski Weeks in Europe, North America, and New Zeeland. It is time for some gay-friendly snow fun in the Alps, Rocky Mountains, Pyrenees, and Norway together with other LGBT Winter Sports fans from all over the world. You may think, why a gay party now also in the snow. But, why not?! LGBT people are not fully accepted in every small mountain ski areas and resorts. But during a Gay Snow Event, homosexual locals and travels get the opportunity to enjoy Ski and Snowboard fun in the

The best of Portland Pride 2019 with photos and videos of the LGBTQ+ Rainbow Celebration in Portland, Oregon. Bearded men, a hipster community, great coffee, and local beer breweries – Portland in Oregon was already for many years on our gay travel bucket list for the USA. In 2019, we were finally able to visit the green US-American state on the Pacific coast finding exactly what we were looking for.
