LGBT Holidays: Top 10 Vacay Spots Around The World Ranked

It is June and that means it is officially Pride Month! If you’re looking for vacation spots that will offer you a good time while also keeping you safe, here are some recommendations. Recently, a prominent travel agency called Planet Cruise released a ranking listing the best spots for LGBT holidays in 2023. It analysed and took into consideration various aspects like whether same-sex marriage is legal in the region, the number of gay/lesbian-centred bars available in the area and whether same-sex couples can adopt.

According to the list released by Planet Cruise, the top LGBT holiday spot is New York City. It didn’t score the highest in the safety index; however, the city has legalised both, same-sex marriage as well as adoption. According to the list, NYC also has the highest number of LGBTQ+ bars. That is why the city ranked the highest.

According to an article published by Time Out New York, the city has way more LGBTQ+ bars than mentioned in the list. Apart from that, the city also frequently hosts a number of pride-related events and locations like historical monuments, queer-centric fine-dining places, weekly drag brunches, sapphic events, etc.

After NYC, London bagged the second spot on the list of best queer-friendly vacation spots. It scored 342 on the safety index and has legalised both same-sex marriages as well as adoption for same-sex couples.
