We’re going beyond the usual gay travel articles—we’re here to help you discover the most up-to-date LGBTQ+ events, nightlife, destinations, festivals, parties, clubs, cruises and more that match your spirit of adventure. Our real-time ranking system will keep you in the know, so even if you’re setting off alone, you’ll have trusted guidance at your side.
We have been around the world searching for hot spots just like you—so we get the perks and pitfalls of traveling while LGBTQ+. That’s why we wanted to raise the bar when it comes to gay travel planning. We know an inclusive space means more than a flying a rainbow flag outside (though that does help).
What we bring to the table that’s a bit different than some gay travel sites, is that we have really been in your amazing shoes stomping around these cities, venues, and events. Our recommendations are LGBTQ+ friendly, so you don’t have to deal with ordering your cocktail with a side of judgment.
While “gay travel” might act like an umbrella term to some, we know that there are so many unique identities and experiences that make our beautiful LGBTQ+ community. Our goal is to represent all people under our rainbow, because everyone deserves to feel acceptance and love wherever they go.
Admit it. You love to judge (places, of course, not people). We’re pretty proud of our rainbow color-coded system, because it’s what sets us apart from other gay travel sites. Our scale lets you see what’s hot and what will leave you cold, plus see what your fellow LGBTQ+ travelers really think of a city, venue, festival, or event.
Have your own gay travel influencer moment. After you hit up a new city, venue or event, let our community know what you thought by adding your own rating with our handy Rainbow Meter. So, if you’ve got lots of opinions or just want to let us know you had a great time, we want to hear about it.
Your reviews will help future LGBTQ+ travelers know what’s a must-see spot wherever you’ve been. Or, let us know if we need to update our info, sometimes places close or events change - we like to stay informed. It’s a great way to support the community while you see the world.
Check out how we rank our listings. Slide the rating meter and show us how you really feel.
Your ratings help us highlight stand-out places and experiences and let fellow LGBTQ+ travelers find the right vibe for them.
So, how does this work anyway?
Call us overachievers, but we thought the world of gay travel research needed a little zhuzhing up. We’ve left no stone unturned - and no bar stool unsat in - to build you a comprehensive rating system to supplement all those gay travel “10 best” lists you’ve been reading.
We’re using tech for good. We use social media data, user ratings, and Rainbow Index staff history to deliver a score.
As our global network members travel the world and submit their ratings, we’ll keep all scores updated in real-time, so you’ll have the latest takes.
Our Rainbow Meter makes researching easy and scannable. No more wading five pages deep in gay travel Google searches.
We host reviews of cities, events, venues, parties, experiences, etc. so you can get the full picture before you even pack your bags.
Discover Pride events near and far with Pride Now. Never miss a march, parade, party, drag show or concert, even when you’re halfway across the globe. Our team does their research to make sure we find events that cater to every part of our community’s gorgeous LGBTQ+ rainbow.
We’re all in this together, so if you have the scoop on a city, event or venue that’s not in our system yet, we’d love to hear about it! Just tell us a bit about it and your experience and we’ll add it to our listings for future travelers to learn about.
Getting you involved is one way we can got beyond the standard gay travel sites by being collaborative and inclusive.Add a listing
