10 Reasons Malta Should Be on Your Gay Travel Bucket List
Malta is an archipelago of islands located in the center of the Mediterranean, just south of Sicily and above northern Africa.

Key West & Cuba: Two Close Yet Contrasting LGBT Destinations
Key West is a popular, year-round destination for LGBT travelers looking to relax in the warm Florida sun, but is its small island neighbor just a hundred miles to the south a hot spot for gay travelers too? With the new travel laws allowing more Americans to visit Cuba, that looks to be the case. Both islands enjoy warm waters and a tropical climate with little difference between the coldest and warmest months so it’s not hard to understand their appeal. Though they may be close in proximity, they offer unique and contrasting experiences for LGBT visitors.
9 Amazing Reasons Why You Don’t Want to Miss Gay Pride in Barcelona
Barcelona has been a destination of choice for gay tourists for the past couple decades and its reputation as a gay friendly city is well deserved. The Mediterranean climate is difficult to pass up and the proximity to beaches and mountains make it a visual masterpiece. We’ve been to Barcelona at least five times and we discover something new and exciting every time we visit. With mild weather, a thriving gay scene and a great quality of life, Barcelona is wonderful anytime of the year but the city explodes with life during its annual pride celebration.
Pride Barcelona 2018 is scheduled for June 23rd to 30th and features a dedicated pride village with food and drink vendors plus a parade, lots of activities and performances throughout the weekend. The city hosts numerous parties and activities including an amazing (and free!) outdoor foam party as part of the festivities. In fact, last year marked the 10th anniversary of Pride Barcelona and each celebration just gets better than before.
We attended Pride Barcelona in 2015 and had a blast so we thought we’d give you a rundown of 9 amazing reasons why we think you should attend! We promise you won’t regret it.
