Explore Queer Nice with These Annual Events
The south of France is a hugely popular destination year-round and Nice, the second largest city of the region after Marseille, lives up to the hype. As it continues to grow, the city is adding a new underground section to its charming tramway system which cuts right through the brightly colored Place Masséna. On our third visit to the city, we weren’t surprised to discover that Nice still had wonderful things to show us. With a population of around one million, the city is well known for being one of the most popular gay-friendly destinations in southern France. In addition, the delightful shops, certified restaurants serving up authentic Cuisine Nissarde (try Chez Theresa for an affordable, family owned spot or Sentimi for a certified gay-friendly Italian restaurant), vibrant markets (the Flower and Vegetable market in the Old Town of course) and annual events make it a destination worth experiencing anytime of the year.

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.

11 Things You Missed at Arosa Gay Ski Week in Switzerland

Now in its 13th year, the event creates a welcoming atmosphere for all LGBT people and allies in the gay friendly village of Arosa, Switzerland. The skiing and snowboarding might be the main draw for most attendees but second to that (or perhaps better) are the lineup of events and activities throughout the week. From the White Party at the top of the mountain to evening classical music concerts, the week-long event has something for just about everyone and every taste.

Ljubljana is Slovenia’s stunning capital and as if looks weren’t enough, it’s also quite open-minded making Slovenia a surprisingly progressive country. The gay-friendly city is host to Pink Week each year which involves six days of activities to introduce you to the country and its capital in a gay-friendly environment.
