Gay Travel Tips for Touring Europe

Published Date Author: , September 29th, 2014

Europe - Apple MapsThe Gay European Tourism Association (GETA) has launched an information campaign to educate LGBTI travelers touring Europe. GETA’s new website explains the ‘difference in legal and social attitudes to homosexuality across Western, Central and Eastern Europe,’ so LGBTI travelers are aware of how homosexuality is treated throughout European countries.

Using countries like Poland, Croatia, the Czech Republic and Russia as case studies of how society and laws might treat LGBTI people differently, GETA advises: ‘It is for individual LGBT travelers to decide what countries they wish to visit but as a rule, the further east you travel in Europe, the more careful you need to be about public displays of your sexuality.’

GETA’s website also advocates proper planning for families and same-sex couples traveling throughout Europe. ‘Most countries in Europe welcome LGBT tourists,’ said GETA’s Executive Director Carlos Kytka, ‘but there are a few simple tips to make sure your trip is safe.’
