Gay Dublin, Ireland – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Dublin, Ireland - The Nomadic Boys

Dublin has all of the best things in life that start with the letter D. Drinks. Dancing. Dramatic arts. And Dickie… i.e. Rock!

When people think about gay-mazing cities in Europe, Gay Dublin is often overlooked for places like Manchester or Berlin. We can’t think of a reason why a place that has hosted the Eurovision Song Contest the most times and also given birth to legendary gay icons like Oscar Wilde isn’t more highly favored amongst the gays.

Gay Dublin is Unique

For one, there is nothing like the Irish sense of humor. After all, Irish people have the best crack in all of Europe. Except they spell it “craic”, and it’s not what you’re thinking, it’s the Irish slang saying for “fun” or a “good time”. In fact, the term is so common, locals greet each other by asking ‘any craic?’ or ‘what’s the craic?’ instead of ‘hello’. So, don’t be alarmed if this happens to you whilst exploring the city!

Another is the city’s incredible energy. Half-modern, half-medieval, there are few other places you can sip a cocktail in a posh metropolitan bar within viewing distance of a castle or cathedral that is centuries old. Every street corner is embroiled in some fascinating historical event. From the iconic O’Connell Street, where you can still see the bullet holes in the GPO building from the 1916 rebellion, to Kildare Street, where Dracula writer Bram Stoker once liv

Gay Madison for LGBTQ+ Families – 2TravelDads

Madison, Wisconsin wasn’t on our radar as a must-see destination, but we were like “Sure, let’s go and see what we can see.” It turns out that there are so many awesome, unique things to do in Madison and around. It’s a great summer destination whether you want the city experience or to explore the outdoors.

So, what do you know about Wisconsin? Before we started planning our trip all we knew was cheese, beer, and the Green Bay Packers. We had a goal to find the best things to do in gay Madison during the summer (it’s already known for being a beautiful fall colors destination).

Getting to Gay Madison, Wisconsin

Until our first trip to the city, we’d always considered Wisconsin as a fly-over state, meaning that we only just flew over it and didn’t need to explore it. So, turns out that it’s actually really easy to get to with plenty of flight options into here or Milwaukee, typically with connections. Also, southern Wisconsin, which is where this article is focused, is really close to Chicago, so a Wisconsin family trip could be an easy add-on to a trip to the Windy City.

Visiting Gay Cyprus – The Nomadic Boys

Visiting Gay Cyprus - The Nomadic Boys

What’s the best part of Cyprus? Us! Cypr-“us”… get it? Ok, sorry, that was bad…

As the humble Greek/Cypriot part of your favorite duo, it gives me immense pleasure to gush all about the marvels of traveling this island. It’s a land of superb beaches, old buildings, seaside restaurants, delicious food, tons of mythological sites, and gorgeous people – if I may say so myself! 

About Gay Cyprus

Gay life has been quite a challenge for local Cypriots, but it is slowly evolving, becoming more and more vivacious with each passing generation. When it comes to gay parties and festivals, Gay Cyprus is no Tel Aviv or Mykonos, but it’s still a huge draw for LGBTQ travelers and couples.

It’s is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, located south of Turkey, and close to Greece. It has a politically chequered past, with the nation being divided between the occupied North and the Republic of Cyprus in the South following a military coup by Turkey in 1974.

Ten Biggest Gay Clubs in the World – The Nomadic Boys

Ten Biggest Gay Clubs in the World - The Nomadic Boys

We’ve partied at the biggest gay clubs in the world, falling in love with these huge bars one by one. Here’s our top 10!

What’s your favourite way of… doing it? We like it hard… and big… and… loud… and crazy! We like to scream, to experience total euphoria, and to feel unbridled pleasure. Lady Gaga once said “baby loves to dance in the dark”, and boy, do we concur! We’re, of course, talking about going out clubbing… what else could we have meant?

We Nomadic Boys have made no secret of our love for the dancefloor. And we’re generally not fussy. Clubhouses, bars, hotel ballrooms, even an art gallery have sufficed for us in the past. But we decided to put the age-old question to the test, asking ourselves:

Does size really matter?

The Ten Biggest Gay Clubs

Turns out, it does! We’ve partied at some of the biggest gay clubs in the world, falling in love with them one by one. Bigger gay clubs have a lot more room to contain things like world-class sound systems, epic lighting effects, internationally renowned DJs, cute bar staff, cool, likeminded clientele, and a playlist of songs to suit all tastes.
