Best Tips for an LGBT Road Trip

Going on a road trip is one of the most adventurous things in the world, especially if you’re doing it with your close friends. Still, getting in a car and hitting the road is simply impossible to do unless you plan everything first. Investing your time and energy into details such as your destination, accommodation, food, budget, and activities might take a while, but this is ultimately going to take your road trip from average to amazing. If you too are planning a road trip adventure as well, here are a few gay-friendly road trip tips that might end up going a really long way.

Choose your destination

This is probably the most important decision you’re going to make during this entire process, but there’s a problem when you’re choosing a destination for an LGBT road trip – not all destinations are as LGBT-friendly as you may expect. Even though we’re living in the 21st century and consider people to act friendly towards tourists, you’d be surprised to hear about the problems LGBT tourists are facing when they’re on vacation.

Therefore, picking a destination is something you need to do very carefully. Take your time, look into some of the most LGBT-friendly places in the world, and pick a spot where you’ll feel welcomed, safe, and good. Also, be sure to talk to your travel companions and hear them out – they might recommend a destination you didn’t think of or vice versa, so take their wishes into consideration too.

Pick your companions

Speaking of your travel companions, this is another issue you need to address carefully. While most people think that who you’re traveling with isn’t as important as where you’re going, that’s actually not the case. Just imagine being stuck in a car with three or four people you hate for a week or two – yes, not going in the first place is much better than that!

Your companions should be the people you know for a while and who you’re comfortable around. These people will share every waking moment of your time with you, so you need to feel relaxed enough to behave naturally instead of having to pretend you’re someone else. It’s not about your sex or sexuality – after all, your companions don’t necessarily have to belong to the LGBT community at all – but about spending time with someone you generally love spending time with.

Fix your car

Just because you’re going on a road trip doesn’t mean you should be left stranded in the middle of the road. Still, this definitely happens more often than you can imagine, and it will certainly happen to you as well unless you’re traveling in a car that’s properly maintained and ready for such a journey. Doing these things isn’t easy, but it’s just something you have to do if you want to be able to get home from your road trip.

Maintaining your car regularly means checking the engine, inspecting the fluids, changing the oil, and replacing the tyres. The latter might easily be the most important thing of them all, so looking into those reliable 4wd tyres could end up saving your life. Having the wrong tyres might ruin your trip quite easily, so replacing them before hitting the road is definitely a great idea. 

Pack your essentials

One of the benefits of traveling by car is being able to bring as much luggage with you as you want. Unlike airplanes, cars give you an option to pack literally all your essentials, so make sure you’ve packed everything you’re going to need on your road trip. This might not be easy, but dedicating some time to this issue is way better than realizing you don’t have some of your stuff while you’re in the middle of nowhere.

Packing for your perfect LGBT summer road trip means packing a number of crucial items – from your documents and your clothes to your formal wear and your skin products. In the end, you need to pack your less formal clothes as well – after all, finding a lover is just the thing all single young people are hoping for on their road trip.

Going on a road trip is always fun and exciting, but if you’re going on an LGBT road trip this summer, you can be sure you’re going to have the time of your life! Being surrounded by others who are just as fun and wild and free as yourself will make this road trip an occasion you’re going to remember forever.

How to Plan a Perfect Summer Adventure

Planning a trip is one of those things that we all enjoy, but it can be nerve-wracking, especially if you’re planning a trip with someone and you cannot come to an agreement. To make matters worse, 2020 has got us by the neck, so we cannot really go for just any type of trip. Regardless, this is the time to start thinking about summer, for two reasons. One – it will be useful to know where you will spend your summer days and two – it seems that more than half the year has passed without us doing anything worth remembering. So, it’s our job to make the most out of this summer. In order to have the best trip, you don’t have to go big or break the bank. There are so many different options that you can go with, so take a look at a couple of our ideas:

Travel locally

They say that the grass is always greener on the other side, which is very visible in the industry of travel. All of us, you and I included, love to go someplace abroad, discovering a new LGBT-friendly destination, forgetting that we have so many beautiful places in our own country. So this summer might be the one for you to travel locally and explore amazing and not so distant places. Being a tourist in your own country might just be what you need, so use this opportunity to do it in 2020, because – if not now, then when?

Embrace nature

Another way to play this summer trip game is to not spend it on a beach, but rather in nature. Summer is not for sea only; you can also have a memorable and relaxing time generally in nature. Try to find different camps, cottages, mountains or even national parks where you will spend a couple of days during the summer. Yes, this type of holiday might be completely different than the summer holidays you’re used to, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it out. Make sure to have high-quality equipment, which means that you can always go with Tekto Gear, bring some warm clothes and your camera because you will need it. Spending your summer in nature is an entirely different experience that you should try out.

Why not a road trip?

Then again, why not organize a good road trip? Road trips are always very popular, but this year it seems that they will be more popular than ever. If you want to, you can even travel to a different country, rent a car, or simply take your car and just drive. You need to worry about several things when it comes to a road trip, so it would be very good if you planned everything in advance – the stops, the number of days you will be spending there, check the weather. Make sure to know what to pack, as packing for a trip is never an easy endeavor.

No matter where you go – choose authentic

If 2020 taught us something, it’s that we can never be sure what life has in store for us. Because of that particular fact, it is our job to enjoy our trips as much as possible and try to understand life on Earth as much as we can. That is precisely why authentic trips will be huge this, and in the years to come. See what other cultures are doing, try to understand how different people live by emerging into their world. You do not have to go to Asia or Africa to do this – there are people living a very different life in your vicinity. Visit cottages and live in the woods for seven days. Try to see what life on a farm feels like for a week. All of these things will not only bring you relaxation and distance you from your daily hustle and bustle, but they will also provide you with a new experience that you will definitely remember in years to come.

2020 might not have been the best year so far, and that’s why we need to redeem it with a powerful summer. Your summer trip must be unique and unforgettable – that should be your goal. 

How to Pack for a European Fall City Break

Touring through European cities means seeing many exciting places, learning a lot of history, swimming, and of course, taking a lot of pictures. If this is your first time traveling there, here is a helpful guide of the essential things you will need.

Shoes

First, let’s talk about shoes since they take up so much space. You have probably made different outfits in your head and can’t wait to wear them, but if they include more than two pairs of shoes, forget about it. All you need are versatile shoes like, white sneakers that will go with any outfit and occasion, or a trendy pair of loafers, and some stylish sandals or slides, which are a better option. If you absolutely have to pack another pair, make sure those are comfortable sports sneakers you can travel in, and then wear them for walking or when you go sightseeing.

Clothes

Regardless of the type of vacation you are having, make sure you pack some extra shirts, in case you get wet or dirty. Pieces that can be both casual and formal are men’s polo shirts, which are a classic you can’t go wrong with. Wear it with shorts, pants, or jeans, and it will look stylish, plus they are very comfortable. Pack some basic monochrome t-shirts, a long-sleeved shirt for a night out, and for a crazy night out, take out your favorite print or trendy t-shirt which you didn’t have the chance to wear.

Pack two pairs of jeans, one pair of pants, and just in case, at least one shorts, because it can get hot. Don’t forget sweaters and a light fall jacket. Denim or leather are perfect because they will keep you warm, they go with everything, and they are super trendy. And, of course, don’t forget your favorite bathing suit because you never know where you will have a chance for a quick dip at least. 

Cosmetics

Keeping your skin protected when traveling is pretty hard, which is why you need to have at least some basic skincare products in your cosmetics bag. A face wash, a moisturizer, some wet wipes, sunblock, a deodorant, razors, and at least a concealer will be enough, although you can pack some other go-to products. Make sure to pack travel sizes, and for the purpose of traveling light, you can get all your bath essentials once you get there. And since your cosmetics bag will probably hold these items, condoms, band-aids, and a basic meds kit should be there as well. 

Accessories

The first and most important thing is a bag or a backpack, whichever you like better. It’s convenient because you can carry it wherever you go, pack all your personal belongings, and even pack something you bought there. 

A wristwatch is the main jewelry piece you need, but if you are a fan of bracelets or necklaces, do pack them, just don’t wear them while you get through airport control. A cool cap can complete your style, so if you like wearing them, pick your favorite and pack it. Sunglasses and a belt should also be on your list. 

Fun and games

In the fun and games section, we will include all the technology since that’s where a lot of the fun is. Your phone, charger, a speaker, headphones, power bank, and a camera are some of the essentials. You can take photos, record, listen to music, talk to people, and get maps and directions when you need it. If you know you will be attending a crazy party, do pack something fun like a wig, glitter, funny clothes, or even just socks or underwear that is at least silly. If your type of fun is a bit calmer atmosphere, a kindle or a book are a good choice. 

How to Plan a Perfect LGBT Honeymoon

No matter if you’re a sucker for weddings or not, we can all agree that the honeymoon is the best part of any wedding. This is the time to make the best memories, relax and start your marriage on the right foot. However, without ample planning, your trip can end up being a total bust. So, here are a few practical tips on how to plan a perfect LGBT honeymoon.

Plan well

All the best honeymoons are planned while both parties are on the same page. So, make sure to talk it over before you start contacting travel agents! Do you want to unwind and relax or have a wild adventure that will fill you with adrenaline? Do you prefer bright lights of the city or the quiet of the beach and nature? You must know what you want as a couple and what you prefer as travelers. This will allow you to plan the best honeymoon to mark the beginning of your life together.

Research your destination

Here’s the harsh truth, it’s still illegal to be LGBT in over 80 countries and in 13 you can be sentenced to death for being gay. However, traveling as a gay person can be risky no matter where you go. This is not scaremongering, but even ultra-liberal destinations like NYC, London and Amsterdam have instances of anti-LGBT violence. Now, you can’t miss your honeymoon because you’re scared! But, what you can do is pick a more gay-friendly destination—we just want you to be safe, alright!

Choose LGBT-friendly accommodation

Not every destination has obviously gay resorts and hotels, so make sure to do your research. When in doubt, check with Ebab or go through Fodor’s and Frommer’s selections. You’ll get to find all sorts of LGBT sections, area-specific tips and no-nos for gay romance.

Pack well

If you’re going to a tropical island or anywhere where you’re planning to spend the majority of your time at the beach, you don’t need much. However, you still want to be stylish and even maybe show off your love. For instance, lesbian couples can check out one piece swimwear online and grab matching swimwear. You’ll look so fabulous together (you might look like walking lesbian stereotypes, but who cares!). However, if you’re planning to have fancy dinners in the city, you’ll need something more formal, preferably with sleeves. Additionally, don’t forget to pack all your sex toys and gear. You might get a chance to renew your collection at your destination, but who knows whether they sell anything. You just can’t risk it.

Organize something special

Just because you tied the knot, that doesn’t mean you can leave romance and grand gestures behind you! Take time to surprise your spouse with something very exciting and show just how much you love them. Use your knowledge of their preferences to come up with something amazing that will surely make them happy. If you have a hopeless romantic for a husband, plan a private evening with bubbly, roses and a lot of cuddling. On the other hand, if your wife loves adventure, a field trip to nature will make her feel over the moon.  

Don’t forget why you’re doing this

The most important thing about honeymoons is the feeling of doing something together, as a couple. So, no matter how much you hate organizing stuff, make sure to stay engaged and give your feedback. This planning time will not only allow you to grow as a couple but also bring you closer together. If you plan it together, it will make your honeymoon even more perfect. So, don’t forget why you’re doing this—to celebrate your beautiful love and your victory over haters!

Sure, planning a perfect honeymoon is not something you can do in one afternoon, but if you stay focused and do your homework, you’ll end up in real LGBT heaven!

How to Pack For a Perfect Summer LGBT Road Trip

It’s summer which means that it’s time for that LGBT road trip of the year, and we cannot be more excited than that. You have probably decided on your destination, but depending on the destination that you chose, you will have to pack accordingly. Some people like to go to cold places during the summer months, such as Scandinavian countries for example, and if this is the case, make sure to pack both something warm and something for when it’s hot. However, we will focus on those who will go someplace hot where they will show plenty of skin. What to pack and what to have always in mind?

The essentials

The first things that you need to put in your bag are the essentials that you cannot travel without. These include your passport, your ID, your medical insurance, your plane tickets and the booking of your accommodation. Have these in one place and don’t forget them as you cannot buy new ones there. This is particularly important for your passport and your medical insurance. As far as the tickets and the booking confirmation are concerned, it’s always good to have them with you at all times, unless you want to run around trying to find a place to print them out. Also, have a backup copy on your phone.

Clothes

As far as clothes are concerned, make sure to have something for every single occasion. This means that you want something long-sleeved in case it gets chilly, something formal, something sporty, something sexy. It’s summer and you probably don’t need a lot of clothes, but bringing something of everything will definitely make your stay there more interesting. Also, you can bring some women’s boots if you want to have a crazy night out in drag or if that’s your cup of tea. However, make sure that the things you wear are comfortable, as comfort comes before anything else.

Something formal

Since it’s your summer holiday, there will be a time when you will go out together on a formal dinner at a good restaurant, and this is why you need to pack something that’s a bit more formal as going there in flip flops and shorts just won’t do. Now, you don’t have to pack your whole suit, but make sure that you have one pair of good pants and a shirt that accentuates all of your best features. As far as shoes are concerned, you can choose sneakers as these go well with suits and also because athleisure.

Vanity table items

Now, what about the small things that you think take no space but when you double check you see that they are taking way more than they are supposed to? We are talking about shampoos, skin care products, perfumes. First, check if there are shampoos in the hotel or apartment you will be staying at, and if yes, there is no need to bring your own. You will need some space for the sunscreen and other things that are important for the summer. Of course, don’t forget your signature perfume as you will need it every night. You don’t have to bring more than one – it’s summer and more often than not you will not be needing it. 

For sexy time

And finally, an LGBT trip is nothing without the possibility of getting between someone’s sheets, of course, if you’re single and going without a partner. If this is your case, do not forget to pack your favorite pair of underwear as you will never know when you will be needing them. Apart from that, bring condoms and lube – you might find these there, but it’s always better to bring some with you. Also, have at least one condom always with you in your wallet. 

 

Well guys, hopefully, you will have the time of your life. LGBT trips are amazing, and there are things that you will remember from every single one of them. This is why you should make this summer another summer to remember!

Gay Summer Vacation Outfits and Style Tips

We love summer for so many reasons, and one of them is because we get to wear amazing summer clothes! This is even more exciting when we’re planning what to pack and bring with us when we go to our long-awaited summer vacation! No more sweaters, caps and winter shoes for a while, it’s time for something lighter and more comfortable! Check out this cool and stylish list about what’s hot this year regarding gaycation fashion! 

Classic jean jacket

You can find denim in most closets! Yet, when we’re talking about a jean jacket, not everyone can pull off this ever-classy piece of clothing in the same way, and many people don’t combine it in such a way to get the most out of the outfit. Maybe your first instinct would be to pair it with regular blue jeans. This is acceptable. However, match it with a pair of black jeans instead if you want to be even more stylish.  

A classic jean jacket is perfect for breezy summer nights or as a chic layer to get that look which is both casual and stylish at the same time. 

A lightweight hoodie

Even if you see that the temperature is going to be ideal during your stay, you should still consider packing your favorite hoodie! You might need it during the morning hours when it’s a bit colder, or to offer you a little warmth on the beach when the wind gets too cool. If you feel cold during your promenade with your partner, you won’t enjoy it as much. However, bring your lightweight hoodie and feel completely carefree!

Nautical striped knit shirt

This is one of those items of clothing that look good on whoever wears them. If you want to be complimented on your perfect getup, know that this piece, which is a combination of navy and white, and is also known as a French sailor shirt, goes perfectly with blue or black jeans. 

Cotton short-sleeved shirt with buttons

This is something everyone has, probably more than one. If you do not own anything like this, it’s time you go shopping and buy more of them, each in a different color! It’s dressier than other items on this list, and it requires a pair of nice-looking quality shoes. You can wear this if you want to go out, since it’s perfect for a club or maybe if you’re having a dinner with your partner. If you want to experiment a bit, try a floral pattern or maybe a checkered one. It’s audacious and people will notice you for sure!

Branded underwear

Whenever you want to invest in quality branded men’s underwear, know that you can’t make a mistake. While fashion keeps changing every once in a while, good old branded underwear is always in! It doesn’t matter that no one can see it but yourself (if we are not including your significant other), when you know you’re wearing underwear of the highest quality, you simply feel better and more stylish! You deserve the best, and if you already pay attention to wearing only trendy clothes, underwear should be included here undoubtedly! 

Hopefully, you’ll find this stylish list helpful and inspiring. You can always check out pictures in magazines and on the internet to see how famous people have combined these items. You’ll find a lot of amazing looks and you’ll want to copy them for sure. However, if you don’t want to be a copycat, you can always experiment and do things differently. Be creative and unique and have fun as others stare at you in amazement on your vacation.

5 Ways to Stay Healthy on a Summer Vacation

We were doing our best to stay fit and healthy for the summer, and now that it’s here, what now? Well, it seems that we definitely need to keep going and pay attention to all the things that we eat, drink, do, just in order to stay healthy during our summer vacation. Imagine working so hard to get that damn booty so well-rounded or your abs picture-perfect just so that you get sick and stay in bed the whole summer vacation. Awful, indeed. So, take a look at a couple of ways in which you can make sure that you stay completely healthy this summer!

Healthy snacks, always

Summer is probably the season when we don’t actually get hungry that often. Could it be because of the heat, or perhaps we have so much fun in the sun that we forget about hunger, it’s not known. But it’s true. So, in order to make the best out of this situation, it’s important not to snack on junk food, as it will never do you any good. Not for your body, and not for your health. This is why you should stack yourself with healthy snacks, such as healthy nuts, high-protein nutrition bars, or fruit. The latter is always a great option for the beach for example, as it’s not only healthy but incredibly refreshing as well. 

Take your vitamins

Sometimes, we don’t actually get all the vitamins that our body needs. Summer is even worse in this case, as we, as already mentioned, forget to eat and are constantly trying to find new ways to have fun and enjoy the sun. Due to the fact that we don’t eat regularly or simply eat whatever comes to hand, we should make sure we’re taking all the important vitamins and nutrients our body needs. Apart from the regular magnesium, vitamin D or iron, we should take something for our heart and cardiovascular health, such as the CoQ10 pills that will also help with the oxidation of our system. Remember that your health is the most important thing that you own, and you really want to keep special attention to it during summertime. You definitely don’t want to get crazy right now!

Your face matters

Skincare is also a form of being healthy, so it doesn’t matter that this is not your first association upon hearing the word “healthy”, but sunscreen is definitely something you always need to have with you, especially during summertime. Even though not many people know that it’s important to use sunscreen in winter as well, most of us know that the summer sun is quite dangerous, and that the UV sunrays are quite harmful. Choosing a good sunscreen will definitely help your face skin and health. 

H2O to the rescue

Thank God and people are finally aware of the importance of hydration! But the point is to know exactly when you need to drink water. For example, many people fail to do so during summertime, which can cause fatigue and sluggishness. What can make this worse is travelling and spending time in the sun, so it’s important to always have a bottle of water next to you. It’s still a question how much water a day you should drink, but make sure that it’s around 2 liters. Drinking plenty of water and hydration in general is not only important for your face or skin, but for your general health as well. Your organs need water in order to function normally, your metabolism will get better, and your brain will work in a better way. 

Get enough zzzs

As the final piece of advice on how to stay healthy during your summer holidays is that you always sleep as much as you need, which is, to remind you, 7 or 8 hours a night. Yes, there will be times during which you will be gaying your way through the crowd of dancing people, but make sure that you get rested afterwards, and don’t party every single night. Sometimes your body needs to recover from dancing, let alone alcohol and whatever-else-you-took, so make sure you have your alarm clock ready nearby. Or a picture of sheep if in need to count them. 

So what’s our goal this summer? Yes, have fun obviously, find a boyfriend or a crush / one-night stand. But the most important one is definitely staying healthy. Without that, we wouldn’t be able to achieve other goals!

5 Best Ways to Relax After a Long Flight

Traveling is always so much fun, but if we travel to distant destinations, then we face jet lag, one of the worst feelings in the world. So it’s safe to say that with traveling long distances, you gain some, you lose some, in this case sleep. However, this is a small price to pay for a good trip, especially because there are reasons how to overcome this problem. So, if you have a long trip ahead of you, this is how you can fight off your jet lag:

Spend the day in the nature

It doesn’t matter where you went, coming back home is always difficult. However, what could make you feel slightly happier is not going straight home, but actually spending the day in nature. Exposure to daylight is a very powerful and natural tool that can definitely help you out. This is why, if you’re feeling sleepy (which is one of the main symptoms of jet lag), go outside and spend the day in the sun. Go to the closest park and spend the day with your friends there. It’s important to go somewhere that’s very light and relaxing, so local beaches or parks will do just fine. However, if the weather is not good, you might be in trouble and have to move to a different tip.

Stay active

While your initial idea after a long flight would be to relax, you can also stay active. Exercising early in the morning or late afternoon (good sex can also count as an activity, for your information!) will certainly revitalize you. However, make sure not to exercise very close to your bedtime as it can be counterproductive.

Relax in your home

Probably the first idea of any of us would be to go home and relax in the comfort of our own home. And this is generally an amazing idea, but make sure that you actually know how to relax. Go home, take off your clothes, take out your candle supplies and light them up, prepare yourself a warm bath and simply relax. A warm bath can really be incredibly powerful and will certainly revitalize you, give you that freshness that you need and wake you up or make you hit those zzzs that you’re missing.

Drink natural tea

Drinking coffee or drinks rich in caffeine will certainly keep you up for some time, but it’s not always the healthiest choice. Instead, you might opt for some more natural drinks, such as a cup of natural tea. The best drink to recharge your body and your mind is a natural brew of Yerba Mate, ginkgo biloba and ginseng. However, it might be quite difficult to prepare it yourself, so if you lack the ingredients or you cannot find an already made mixture, you can opt for a cup of chamomile, lavender or valerian tea. Also, green tea and green matcha tea are also great options that will boost your energy levels a bit.

Mind what showers you take

As far as showers are concerned, you might think that it doesn’t matter what kind of shower you should take and this is where you would be wrong. In case of jet lag, make sure to take a cold shower in the evening and a warm one in the morning. This will release melatonin, also known as the sleep-regulation hormone, as it becomes triggered in sudden temperature changes in the body.

Take a nap

If you land in the afternoon and hit straight home, the chances of you going to bed and falling asleep are very high – and if you sleep 8 hours then you will wake up somewhere in the middle of the night, and what have you done? Nothing. This is why the only way to include sleep in your anti-jet lag process is to take short naps, also known as power naps. These will help you relax for just a bit but will also give you that energy boost that you need to survive until your usual bedtime.

We all love to sleep, and it seems that as we grow older, the more we appreciate sleep. However, it’s not healthy to always sleep, and this is why you should try whatever you can do to fight your jet lag. Not only is it unhealthy, but it’s also quite nerve-wracking. Try out these simple tips and you will see the difference.

Beaches and surf breaks are beautiful and there is even a period when whales that are migratory can be seen (from June to October). You can also see two lighthouses, one on the north and another on the south of the town. It is good for peaceful long distance walks and it is both an LGBT and family friendly place that everyone likes.

Berlin, Germany

If you want to have the time of your life or a honeymoon that came right out of a dream, maybe start thinking about Europe. Berlin is a great city to visit if you are looking for open-minded people. European gay scene is definitely amazing and something everyone should experience. There are many popular gay clubs that are perfect for singles or people in a partying mood. For older gays and transgender people, or just the ones who are more interested in exploring the place’s history and classical culture, you can have tours where you can learn more about German history. It is actually pretty interesting. When it comes to hotels, Mercure Hotel Berlin City comes highly recommended, but there are also many other exquisite options.   

Koh Samui, Thailand

This is definitely for someone who prefers exotic and distant places. A magical island Koh Samui in Thailand is maybe the one that’s most worth mentioning. You can find accomodation over Ebab that is gonna fulfill all of your demands.  Look for accommodations that have a terrace that overlooks the beach and has a splendid view where you can look at the ocean. If you like swimming, you can check out the places with a great swimming pool, or the neighboring beach in order to enjoy an exotic swim in the ocean. You also have a considerable number of spas, gyms and restaurants. There is no way you get bored here!

Toronto in Ontario, Canada

Canada is known to be a very friendly country, so it is not a surprise that you can visit its cities, like Toronto in Ontario, for it has a very gay-friendly reputation. They say you can expect extremely welcoming people here and the LGBT community is pretty strong. If you like drag shows and karaoke, Crews and Tangos is a bar where you can go to have some fun. For the more sedate atmosphere, you have the Beaver for patio and bingo parties. The Pride Month in Toronto is definitely something you don’t want to miss but even if you visit it later in the years, Halloween on Church – the city’s festive Halloween celebration – has got you covered.

Guadalajara, Mexico

This is the second largest city in Mexico and you can expect a lot of gay cuties here, just like the rest of the LGBT population. It is a remarkable cultural destination that brings you mariachi and tequila, and we love both of those. For those of you on the prowl for good-looking singles, just hit some of the city’s many bars and nightclubs where you can let loose. They hold the popular Pride celebration in June.

 

No matter what your cup of tea is, there are always great LGBT friendly places to visit. Luckily, you can find both family or singles friendly ones, too. Hopefully, this list was helpful. Have a nice time wherever you choose to go!
