What about an international festival in Germany featuring LGBTQ+ artists from all over the world? Or did you always dream about the magical moment holding hands in front of Mickey Mouse wearing some rainbow colored ears?
Yasss! We as Gay Travel Blogger will attend the 13th edition of the Pink Lake Festival in Southern Austria this August in 2020. Just two weeks and less to go before we will depart to Klagenfurt in the South of the Austrian state Carinthia. We cannot wait to be in the mountains again, something we really miss in Amsterdam! The small town Pörtschach am Wörthersee will turn pink to offer an LGBTQ+ friendly Get-together to celebrate diversity, love, and equality right on the world-famous Lake Wört (Wörthersee) nestled in the Alps of Austria. Together with the European gay-community, we will put on our Lederhosen to enjoy the beauty of the Austrian mountains close to the border with Italy and Slovenia.
The best of LA Pride in West Hollywood 2019. It was finally time for our first Gay Pride Festival in summer 2019. After our winter premiere in January at Whistler Pride in Canada, we’ve successfully attended Los Angeles Pride and its colorful queer parade through West Hollywood along Santa Monica Boulevard. And we have to admit, LA Pride in the South Western part of the USA was one of our best gay pride festivals ever! After attending Harvey Milk’s Castro Street Fair in San Francisco, we were overwhelmed by so much diversity, the amazing summer weather with blue sky and temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius as well as uncountable happy faces of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies marching peacefully side by side.
AUSTRIA: Already for over 10 years, Carinthia, a state in the south of Austria, is celebrating with hundreds of gay guys, lesbian girls, trans- and bisexual people together with their friends and allies colorful Pink Lake Festival in and around the market town Velden am Wörthersee. The hot summer sun, temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius, and great music by a well-known DJ lineup with James Munich and DJane Käry from Frankfurt am Main, transformed the popular holiday region around Lake Wörth for 4 days into a happy, open-minded, and peaceful LGBTQ+ festival.
