Gay Pride Trips

Gay Travel North America

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

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+

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,

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.

And here it is: The Spartacus Gay Travel Index 2020! The year 2020 started with a huge worldwide challenge named Corona impacting not only our daily lives at home but also the travel industry specifically. Nevertheless, the German publisher of gay travel information and guide books, 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 lesbian, gay, trans and queer travelers information about how gay-friendly a country and, therefore, a holiday destination is according to several ranking factors

Our 10 Whistler Pride Highlights 2019 – It seems to become an annual habit, a good one we have to add. Starting the new year with a Gay Ski Week Pride trip to Canada is just the best way to kick off our gay travel plans for 2019. It was time again to pack our bags and pride ski outfits and fly over to Vancouver to attend the 27th annual Whistler Pride Gay Ski Week in the Whistler Mountains, British Columbia. The first Gay Pride of the season for us brings lesbians, gays, and queers from around the globe together

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.
