Rating scale

Admit it. You love to judge (places, of course, not people). Our rainbow rating system lets you see what’s hot and what will leave you cold, plus see what your fellow LGBTQ+ travelers think of a city, venue or event.

As hot as it gets. Don't miss out.
Toasty warm and well worth the visit.
Heating up, with room for improvement.
Starting to cool off.
Any one else getting seriously chilly?
Completely leaves us cold.

You're up!
