Gay-Friendly Tourism: Best Gay Cities in the World

Gay-Friendly Tourism: Best Gay Cities in the World

We live in a world of contrast. While homosexuality is still persecuted and severely punished in some countries, more and more nations welcome sexual diversity and profit from the so-called “pink money”. Dear readers –gay and straight- don’t you think it is time to open our minds and make a more pleasant and inclusive world? Here are some amazing cities where gay visitors will be in their element:

San Francisco, USA

Scene of The Times Harvey Milk, the film based on the first gay icon and first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, San Francisco can boast to be the world’s original gay Mecca. It is even more friendly now since California legalised same-sex marriage in June 2008. Wandering around Castro District you will definitely feel like you’re at the heart of the gay world. Besides the wide range of gay-friendly bars and restaurants, gay events and attractions take place in San Francisco throughout the year.

Toronto, Canada

Toronto is by far the most advanced and progressive nation in the Americas for the gay community. Popular events such as Pride Week Celebrations, Pride March and Dyke March have made gay sub-culture blossom here. The Village, Toronto’s gaybourhood, is the cultural hub of the city, with an impressive handful of art galleries, theatres and gay-friendly businesses.

Berlin, Germany

Despite its dark history and to most visitors’ awe, Berlin may actually be Europe’s gayest capital. You will also probably ignore that Berlin has the most gay attractions in the world, such as a gay museum (Schwules Museum) and even a gay memorial. Berlin is such a hedonistic and liberal city that a gay mayor was elected in 2001.

Copenhagen, Denmark

This is another city where rainbow flags fly high. In fact, in 1989, Denmark became the first country in the world to recognise registered same-sex partnerships. Not surprisingly, Europe’s oldest openly gay bar, Centralhjørnet, can be found in this relaxed, beautiful city. Blend with one of the most tolerant communities in Europe at Vesterbro district and explore the array of cocktail bars and don’t miss the ‘Rainbow Square’.
