Which countries are gay-friendly? Where would you suggest us to go on our next holiday? These are the questions people asking us as gay couple travel blogger frequently. Lucky us, we never experienced anything really bad though we also had to handle some insulting moments like people calling us faggots, sissy or disgusting, even here in Europe. It made us feel sad, intimidated and a bit scared. To minimize the risk of experiencing insults like these, it is a piece of good advice to choose gay-friendly travel destinations for your vacation.

Damron: The First Name and the Last Word in LGBT Travel
What used to require a trip to the library and hours of research now takes seconds. Not 20 years ago a gay traveler had to mine travel book after travel book to find the locals at a travel destination. Even in the age of the net, though, those guides remain relevant, offering readers a consolidated resource of where to find everything from gay-friendly bars and restaurants to hotels to the best neighborhoods to meet new friends. Rather than searching, they inspire browsing, one of the best ways to stumble upon great destinations and places. With a name like that, who could resist? The first Spartacus guide came out just after the Stonewall Riots prompted gay people all over the world to come together as never before. As such, the guide comes in a variety of languages and covers venues the world over.
You'd probably find more details and more fun information on a LGBT magazine or website. By Chargualaf on Sep 19, If you are looking for an in depth description and pictures of places this is the WRONG book, look for something else. I wouldn't have spent the money if I had seen it in a bookstore. By Michael J Desposito on Aug 12,
For an underground society, as ours was then, it was just what people needed, since bars were about the only social outlet available to homosexuals. By looking through the Sacramento listings over the years it is possible to get a glimpse into the development of our community. Compiling and updating the annual publication was a huge undertaking and errors were common, however with the advent of the computer Damron staffers found life much easier. The annual guide became more accurate and more up to date. The Guide did more than simply provide a list of bars; it gave readers a heads up about potential threats.
