LGBTQ people love to travel as much as anyone else, but they do have to contend with the cultures of the places they visit. After all, not every country treats these individuals favorably. With that being said, it is important to identify the different places throughout the world where you would feel the safest dating as well as places you may wish to avoid. Look at this list and see where your desired destination stands.
The Culture of LGBTQ Dating in Different Countries of the World
The culture for LGBTQ dating around the world varies greatly from place to place. One thing that many of them have in common is that the individuals seek out their dates in somewhat similar ways. In many parts of the world, people go to their local bar, club, or popular hangout place to find singles. Other places in the world feature local gay dating sites where people will quickly identify fellow LGBTQ community members and then ask them out on a date.
Best Places for LGBTQ Travel
We are going to start off by looking at the safest places for LGBTQ people to travel around the world. Most of these places should seem rather family to those who have done a little research on the topic.
The metropolitan areas of the United States tend to be both safe and welcoming of people from the LGBT+ community. However, places in the southern portion of the country, in the Bible Belt, have a tendency to view such people negatively.
Amsterdam is a great place to travel to if you are looking for LGBT acceptance, dating, and a lot to do.
Paris is a fun and romantic place where the LGBTQ community is seeing more acceptance. Furthermore, the city is highly secure and known as one of the most romantic places on the planet.
While you are in mainland Europe, you should check out Berlin. This lovely city is a hotbed of LGBTQ activity and makes everyone feel safe and welcome while they date.
Other good cities to visit include London, Tel Aviv, and Auckland, but there are also many more available.
Worst Places for LGBTQ Travel
Although there are many great places for you to seek dates or travel with your partner, you will not want to visit some areas of the world. We have compiled a list of countries and specific cities that you will not want to visit as a member of the LGBTQ community for the sake of your safety.
Saudi Arabia is a country you do not want to visit if you are LGBT+. The country’s laws insist upon jailing people from the community, flogging them, and worse.
Iran is another country that shares similar laws to Saudi Arabia when it comes to gay people and acts of homosexuality. It is best to avoid this country altogether if you are traveling with another member of the LGBT community.
Nigeria is known for many things, some good and some bad. In terms of the latter, the country has very strict laws about LGBT+ relationships and behavior. Thus, it is good to stay out of this country or at least recognize the danger.
Other countries on the list include much of Russia, Sudan, and Malaysia.
Finding places to travel with your partner can be fun, but it also has a bit of a challenge when you consider that some countries are not safe for LGBT people. Now that you know places where you should and should not travel, you can complete an itinerary and stay completely safe throughout your many journeys.
