Complete Guide to Gay Berlin - The Globetrotter Guys

Three words to describe our visit to gay Berlin – liberating, insane and gay; so very gay! Berlin probably eats other gay cities for breakfast!

There is an attitude of open mindedness across Berlin that seems to be embedded into its culture. People don’t seem to care if you are different and we really felt a sense of ‘anything goes’ and ‘you do you’.

Not only that, but it is a beautiful city, steeped in history and activities to keep you entertained all weekend unless the nightlife takes you first.

During our visit, we were here for Berlin Pride hosted by visitBerlin to learn everything about what gay Berlin had to offer!

In this guide we will provide you with the best gay bars in Berlin, clubs, gay and gay friendly hotels as well as some practical advice for your trip!

Let’s get started…

Gay Area of Berlin

You could feasibly say the entire city, however the ‘official’ gay area of Berlin is Schöneberg whose LGBT community dates back to the 1920s!

However, unlike most cities, you will still find a gay scene elsewhere including Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg/Berlin Mitte.

Gay Japan – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Japan - The Nomadic Boys

Japan is an incredible country. Everything is so advanced, done with such careful precision, immaculate attention to detail – and always with a smile. The Japanese culture itself is rich with tradition, dating back thousands of years and manifests itself in the way the people behave with each other, the many beautiful temples and even in the delicious Japanese food.

Most importantly of all, Japan is very gay friendly, especially for foreigners. We certainly rate it as one of the most gay friendly countries in Asia. Whilst there is a lot of work that needs to be done for the LGBTQ community of Japan, by Asian standards, Japan is way ahead of the pack.

This is our gay travel itinerary to Japan for first-timers to discover the best the country has to offer. It can be done in 10 days or two weeks, the latter allowing more time to enjoy the sights.

Our gay itinerary to Japan is a cultural journey through one of our favourite countries in the world, taking in the big bustling capital city, the Japanese countryside around Takayama, the rich culture of Kyoto and an important educational visit to Hiroshima. One big tip before heading off, you may want to consider pre-ordering a pocket WiFi router to use throughout your trip to save you a lot of money on your roaming fees. We tried this out for our trip and loved that we could both always use our phones when on the move.

Side note: for more Japan inspiration further afield from the traditional tourist route we set out in this itinerary, check out the incredible Yaeyama Islands for some of the best nature, jungle life and diving opportunities.

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park – 2TravelDads

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park - 2TravelDads

Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park just north of Yellowstone is a remarkable place to explore. A must see on a Western Montana road trip, the caverns are an easy addition to any number of travel plans, including a cross-country drive. In this article we’re going to tackle the who, what, why, when and where of the Lewis and Clark Caverns (but not in that order).

Located about forty minutes south of Butte, Montana, the Lewis and Clark Caverns are just off Highway 2. If you’re driving across the state, taking the detour to the Jefferson River Valley is easy and won’t put you terribly off track. The highway actually loops back onto I-90 so you don’t even have to back track!

From Yellowstone National Park, Lewis and Clark Caverns is about 2 hours from the Gardiner, MT entrance and just under 2 hours from the West Yellowstone entrance. There are plenty of other attractions in the area, including Big Sky and Virginia City, so if you need to interrupt your Yellowstone trip, you’ll have plenty of other interesting sites and activities to make the day additionally worthwhile.

Theotron, the Ultimate Gay Club – The Nomadic Boys

Theotron, the Ultimate Gay Club - The Nomadic Boys

5,000 Colombian gay boys partying away in the same club? What’s not to love…!

Theatron makes theatre out of a clubbing experience. From the castle-like architecture to the epic dancefloor production, Theatron grabs its patrons by the throat and thrusts them into an experience they’ll never forget. It’s where all the gay folk of Bogota end their Saturday evening and serves as the ultimate finale to a night out.

There are plenty of rooms to wander between, each with a different style, different decor, different music, and different kinds of people. Perhaps you’re a chameleon, and you’ll find yourself seamlessly blending into each setting. Or you’ll pick a favourite, and snuggle in there for the whole night. Either way, you should definitely throw a quick look into each section, before deciding how to proceed. Be sure to also check out our comprehensive gay guide to Bogota for more tips on exploring the Colombian capital.

So, what is Theatron?

Theatron is the largest, and in our opinion, the best gay club in Latin America. We’d happily go back in a heartbeat to Bogota just to party there.

Theatron is housed in a former theatre hall, hence the name.

It was converted into the beloved gay club complex way back in 2002 and has since evolved into a favourite amongst the LGBTQ scene in Colombia. With a total of 13 different club rooms, spread over 5 different floors, you might want to hold on tight to your friend’s hands, as you can easily lose yourself within the sheer scale and spectacle that is – Theatron.

Lesbian Budapest – Once Upon a Journey

Lesbian Budapest - Once Upon a Journey

Budapest is a magical city in Eastern Europe. While this region of Europe is considered to be conservative, Budapest is different. Lesbian Budapest is up and coming. With its great nightlife, saunas, thermal baths, fancy hotels, great sights and delicious food, Budapest is a fantastic city to visit as a lesbian traveller.

Though Budapest isn’t like Berlin, Amsterdam or Barcelona, this city has so much to offer if you know where to look! Good to know: Budapest is made up of two parts – Buda and Pest – the Danube river separates the two. Pest is considered the buzzing side of the city, while Buda is a lot calmer and more residential. Pest is the go-to place for nightlife! In this Budapest lesbian guide, we will tell you about the LGBTQ rights in Hungary and where to go in “Lesbian” Budapest!

Hungary LGBTQ+ Rights

Hungary is still a conservative country but has improved a lot over the last years. The Hungarian society has always been focused on traditional families, therefore things can be hard in Hungary for local LGBTQ+ people. Same-sex couples don’t have the same legal rights as straight married couples, but homosexuality has been legal for over 60 years. In 2009, Hungary legalised registered partnerships for same-sex couples. Since 2018, transgenders are able to legally change gender and there are laws that ban discrimination on the basis of gender and sexual identity. Of course, the laws don’t always represent the public opinion, but it’s always important to keep the laws in mind when visiting a new country.

Gay Uruguay – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Uruguay - The Nomadic Boys

Uruguay is a country you cannot afford to skip from your Latin America itinerary. It has so much to offer, whether it’s surfing beaches, good wine, stunning scenery, delicious steaks and of course marijuana.

Uruguay is one of the most progressive countries in the world and certainly the most gay friendly in Latin America. It was one of the first in the continent to allow gay marriages, legalise abortions in 2012 and established a welfare state in 1903.

And of course the marijuana which it’s so famous for: since December 2013, Uruguay legalised the cultivation, sale and consumption of marijuana for recreational use.

Most will add on Uruguay as part of their Latin America trip to Argentina or South Brazil, so we set out a variety of options to hit the main highlights the country has to offer. Our Uruguay gay travel itinerary can be done in 1 or 2 weeks, depending if you like to travel at a slow pace like we do.

We also assume that you will be taking the boat from Buenos Aires to Colónia as your entry point, but you can also fly in to Montevideo and start from there.
