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,

Our 10 Whistler Pride Highlights 2019 – It seems to become an annual habit, a good one we have to add.

The year of Canada's 150th anniversary is the year of our first gay travels to the biggest North American country.

But also for the well-known cities Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and, of course, Jasper.

Review of Klaus K Design Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Before we start with our review of the Klaus K Hotel Helsinki, we want to warn you, it is going to be a very sexy gay-friendly hotel article.

eview of Katajanokka Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Escape the Ordinary. Under this motto, hotel guests can discover a unique accommodation in a former Finnish prison on Helsinki’s island Katajanokka in a privately owned, gay-friendly lifestyle hotel. It was an interesting and exciting experience to stay in a modern and spacious hotel room in Helsinki which was in a building that was built to be the living and sleeping space for prisoners who had to serve their prison terms since the early 19th century. After all, the oldest parts of the prison date back to 1837. But the history as a

It was time for us to finally travel to Berlin again to spend some days in the biggest city of Germany where we explored the gay neighborhood Berlin Schöneberg, attend the CSD Berlin Gay Pride and tested the 4-star hotel Scandic Berlin Kurfürstendamm.

Modern style, a gay-friendly staff, and a perfect location: During our gay couple city trip in the largest Canadian city Toronto, we stayed right in the heart between Downtown Toronto and Church-Wellesley Village, the popular so-called Gay Village.

We found all we needed for a

Our trip to Austria’s Capital City with the Gay-friendly Design Hotel Le Méridien Vienna – It was finally time for us to travel together to the capital of Austria Vienna! The recently named “Destination of the Year” by the Australian LGBTI Awards was already for a while now very high on our gay travel bucket list, especially after traveling to other parts of the Alpine state before. And what could be a better reason, besides pride, to travel to Vienna than the annual AIDS Charity event Life Ball? Exactly! Lucky us, we were invited to attend the 25th edition of

In a word, Luxury combined with a perfect city trip location: the right gay-friendly place to stay during a Gay Couple City Weekend Rotterdam.

Nights to remember at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo Japan. Our first trip to Japan started impressive, different and somehow adventurous. We didn’t choose a hotel for our first nights in Tokyo. Instead, we used a unique and rare Airbnb offer to stay in an architectural icon, the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower.

The building is located right in the center of one of the financial districts of the Japanese capital Tokyo, Shimbashi.
