The German publisher of gay travel information and guidebooks, Spartacus, released today its annual Gay Travel Index with a detailed ranking of 202 (+5 countries) countries worldwide and their LGBTQ+ and gay-friendliness. The 8th edition by the Berlin-based publisher gives information for lesbian, gay, trans, and queer travelers about how gay-friendly a country and, therefore, a holiday destination is according to several ranking factors and criteria. LGBTQ+ and gay travelers can use this information as a guideline to prepare for their gaycation as well as taking the index ranking as an indicator for choosing the holiday destination regarding the local

You might remember our first trip last summer where we attended Malmö Pride and toured around the Southern part of Sweden, Scania. This year, we are going back to see even more of Malmö especially the preparations for World Pride 2021 together with Copenhagen. Well, out of this idea developed a plan to see more of central Europe. The idea for a staycation 2020 was born. After our road trip to Sweden, we will make our way over the Baltic Sea to Germany by ferry in order to start our one-month road “Best of LGBTQ+ Germany”. Join us on our

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.

GERMANY: Adventurous and curious as we are, we started our journey with a guided city tour exploring the heart of the gorgeous city center of Munich while learning more about the interesting queer stories of the Bavarian capital, starting with Freddie Mercury, the Deutsche Eiche, and the gayborhood Glockenbackviertel. You can believe us, Munich has some seriously charming places to explore! So, we were set off to a fresh and sporty bike ride away from Munich’s city center to the impressive Nymphenburg Palace, one of the biggest royal palaces in Europe. Our next stop, the Olympic Park from 1972, was

GERMANY: Back to the roots! It always feels like a journey back in time when we are visiting Karl’s family in Eastern Germany. Not only because of the baroque beauty of Dresden’s architectural monuments including the Zwinger, the Castle of Dresden, or the uncountable art treasures in the museums of the Eastern German City. But also because it was Karl’s home town where he came out of the closet, got in touch with the local LGBTQ+ community, and started to play Volleyball in the European Gay League.

The 4-star hotel was our gay-friendly accommodation for the 4-days trip to Munich this summer with enough space to play games, to dance to DJ sets, and to work in an LGBTQ+ welcoming environment. Enjoy our photos, the story about Munich, and our hotel review! We are convinced that we can inspire you to book a stay at the gay-friendly design hotel Aloft Munich, especially for CSD Munich Pride with our Couple of Men gay couple hotel review.

Torsten and Sascha, the gay couple chefs behind the food blog “Die Jungs kochen und backen” (engl.: “The guys cook and bake”), love to spend time together in the kitchen. Cooking and baking are their passions and they love to do it together. The two gay guys are living in Cologne, Germany in their dream-apartment with a lovely view of the famous Cathedral. We love to follow their posts on social media and now we just received their newly released cookbook. Enjoy our story of Torsten and Sascha on Couple of Men and learn more about how the Gay Food

Our Gay Couple Travel Hamburg Germany – The Hanseatic city in the Northern part of Germany was high on our gay travel’s bucket list already for a while. And so we were happy to take the opportunity to visit Hamburg for three days in early summer. Exploring the main port city of Germany was a comforting journey through the old parts like Warehouse District and the gay (friendly) neighborhood St. Georg. And don’t forget our Pyjama Park Hotel stay at one of the most crowded party streets of Hamburg, the Reeperbahn.
