Denmark is significant to the LGBT community as being the first country in the world to recognize same-sex relationships. This progressive city is home to Europe’s oldest gay bar, the Centralhjornet. People stroll down the cobblestone streets in the city and enjoy trendy bars and restaurants, cutting edge fashion, gay-friendly shops and many gay events. At city center, a block was named “Rainbow Square” in remembrance of the struggles for equality.
New York City, USA
The LGBT community remembers the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village and their significance in the gay-rights movement. The first gay pride event was held just one month after the riots and is now in its 23rd year. New York is a tolerant city and it’s truly humbling to see where it all began in the West Village and Hell’s Kitchen, and visit places like Christopher Street and the Harvey Milk School. New York is a favorite destination for weddings, Broadway, and a superb LGBT nightlife.
Toronto provides a fabulous array of gay-friendly events as well as playing host to one of the largest pride events in the world. The multi-day event culminates in a pride march with thousands of participants and 100’s of elaborate floats. Toronto has long been a liberal and forward thinking city when it comes to welcoming the LGBT community. The Area of Church Street and Wellesley is the city’s “gay center” and home to a vast array of gay-friendly galleries, shops, restaurants and theater. This area called “the Village” will soon be home to the first ever gay-themed athletic center.
San Francisco, USA
San Francisco has been a hub in the gay community for over six decades due to its acceptance and tolerance. The streets are filled with quirky shops, art galleries, theaters and restaurants where being openly gay is not only accepted, but the norm. The gay nightlife is thriving with a myriad of clubs and bars that cater to the large and mostly affluent LGBT population. San Francisco is also home to some of the pioneers of the gay movement including Harvey Milk and Tallullah Bankhead.
