Gay Travel North America

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

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 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. In 2019, we were finally able to visit the green US-American state on the Pacific coast finding exactly what we were looking for.

For many LGBTQ + skiers and snowboarders, skiing in Champagne Powder in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is at the top of the Gay Travel bucket list, not only because of the vast powder snow runs through the dense Rockies forests, but also because of the gay ski week in Jasper. Ideal for a gay winter trip is the Jasper National Park in the north of the Canadian province Alberta in western Canada around the city of Jasper.

The hidden gem for the sophisticated lesbian, gay and queer travelers in Illinois. A hidden gem in the United States of America? Yes, there is! Even some of our friends living in the USA contacted us after we published our first photos and stories about our trip to Galena asking: Where is Galena and why are you traveling there? Well, the US American state of Illinois isn’t only about Route 66, Springfield or Chicago, it also is home to Galena which is the largest city of Jo Daviess County, Illinois with a strong connection to the Mississippi River and only

Gay Chicago – City Guide to Pride and the Gay Neighborhoods. We have finally visited the world-famous city of wind in the American Mid West, Chicago. Especially for Karl a dream came true when we were standing at the shore of the Chicago River surrounded by incredibly impressive skyscrapers and another top of the top architectural highlights of the third biggest city of the USA. Suitably during pride month, we as gay couple travel bloggers were invited to attend Gay Pride in Chicago, the Pride Park Festival and explore the gay neighborhoods of the city, Boystown and Andersonville.

New York doesn’t end with New York City’s borders. During our trip to the Big Apple prior World Pride 2019, we traveled north to the heart of New York State, the Mid-Hudson Valley region. Although we have been overwhelmed with a welcoming environment, a calmness and gay-friendliness, we have asked ourselves, how can we introduce to you the heart of New York State the best? Because, you know, New York is New York, right? Well, not quite…

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
