Posted on

castro_gay scenes

We’ve done the work so you don’t have to, here is part one of the A – Z of “Gayborhoods” and Gay Scenes worldwide. Compiled by a number of travel writers and gay socialites we want to see how many times we can get through the alphabet the gay travel way.

Going across the world from North America, to Europe, Africa to Asia, New Zealand to Buenos Aires we have started the gay hot spot dictionary. 

Check out the list, and tell us your experiences of these elusive gay villages. Maybe you want to pick a letter and go – where will your next destination be?

If you have any contributions for Part 2, please do share. What gay scenes are missing?
