Gay Gran Canaria: guide to the best gay bars, clubs and events | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
Gran Canaria is a playground for the gay boys. Check out our gay guide to the best parties, clubs and gay bars in Gran Canaria.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Gran Canaria is a notorious gay destination in Europe, specifically in Playa del Ingles in the South. The island has always been a beacon of tolerance whilst in the olden days, mainland Spain used to have an extremely hostile conservative attitude led by the Catholic Church. The Canary Islands were a popular place to exile people who broke social rules and thought differently.

The Best Places for Gay Holidays

The Best Places for Gay Holidays | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
A round-up of some of Europe's (and the world's) best gay destinations for holidays and other adventures.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Travel is travel, yes. But this year I’ve also realized just how many of my own trips and experiences are almost certainly chosen because of my own sexual preference. Where I’ve traveled to isn’t necessarily anything to do with the fact that I’m gay, I guess, but these are the places that I’ve found that are actually great for other gay travelers like myself—either solo or for gay couples. I never thought I’d be the guy who ended up going to (and actually enjoying!) stereotypically gay destinations, but hey, here I am. Over the past year, I’ve just realized that I like to travel to places where other gay travelers tend to migrate to.

Madrid: World Gay Pride Capital until 2017 | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
The Spanish capital will host the international celebration as well as the Euro Pride event
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Madrid will be the world’s proudest city in 2017. For the first time, the Spanish capital will serve as the host for the international LGBTQ World Pride event, as well as for Euro Pride. “It’s very important, because it’s never been done before – it’s the first time these two events are being celebrated in the same city,” says Juan Carlos Alonso, president of World Pride Madrid 2017’s planning committee. Last Sunday, Alonso and Javier Garrigues, Spanish consul in Amsterdam, received the baton of Euro Pride from the Netherlands on August 7. In July, Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena officially took over the responsibility of World Pride 2017.
