A Dutch Island Vlieland Autumn Weekend – What to do on a rainy autumn weekend in the Netherlands in Northern Europe? This question is good to answer with a weekend escape to the Watten Sea at the north coast of the Netherlands to enjoy a Dutch Island Vlieland Autumn Weekend just 1,5 hours north of the Dutch capital Amsterdam. But do you know how to get to Vlieland with a ferry, what to do on Vlieland in autumn and what if it starts raining? Did you know there is cranberry weekend, that you can listen to a candlelight concert in

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

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 Gay Beach Ibiza Town Spain – Ibiza was on our gay travel bucket list for Spain as largest Balearic Islands already for a while. During our first Gay Cruise with La Demence with had the chance to spend a whole day on the Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea. Our shore leave of The Cruise around southern Spain started at noon with a bus trip to Ibiza Gay Beach where we were able to enjoy the turquoise blue sea, sexy bearded gay men, and a delicious lunch at Chiringay Restaurant. On our way back, we had

The Democratic People’s Republic of Laos also called Laos for short, has the reputation of being one of the most tolerant communist countries for the LGBTQ + community. On the other hand, the first research shows that the online hit rate for LGBT topics is negligible. Comparatively, Google listed numerous videos of LGBT series or pride events in Vietnam, so the results for Laos are hardly worth mentioning.

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

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

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. The fight of the LGBTQ+ community for equality, tolerance, and acceptance on the numerous Gay Pride parades and demonstrations began with a small step. 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+

Probably one of the gay-friendliest ways to explore Southern Africa. It is hard to find the right words to describe our first ever Africa experience, especially because we choose a completely new way of traveling for us by boarding a train from Rovos Rail. Starting at the Namibian Atlantic coast in Walvis Bay, we traveled on railway tracks through Namibia entering South Africa on our way to Pretoria, South Africa’s capital city. Our nine-days train journey through endless no-mans land, rural inhabited savannah regions, windy sand dunes and the protected National Parks of Namibia turned out to be one of

All about our adventurous trip around the north-western part of Costa Rica including the Highlights of our first ever gay travels to Central America. Costa Rica is a true paradise for us nature lovers, beach fans and gay couple travelers. The natural beauty with its white sand beaches, palm trees, rainforest, and the spectacular rough coastline is incredibly diverse. And do not forget the biodiversity with its famous Costa Rican animals like the Toucans, the Red-Eyed Leaf (Tree) Frogs, the sloths, the screeching macaws, and even whales are incomparable. And, of course, not to forget to mention the friendly and
