During our first two years on the road as The Globetrotter Guys we have been lucky enough to meet some incredibly talented and awesome LGBTQ+ and gay travel bloggers like ourselves along the way!
Before we set up our own gay travel blog, we always found these LGBTQ+ blogs an indispensable resource. There are so many extra questions when it comes to travelling as an LGBTQ+ person; could we hold hands, be affectionate with each other and in some places would we even be safe?
These are exactly the questions that we and all these LGBTQ+ blogs are tackling and trying to answer to make sure that you get to explore as much of the world as possible while keeping safe and having the best time.
There are many more LGBTQ+ travel blogs beyond this list so we are only including ones we have met in person or have spoken with online. We will keep adding more as time goes on.
Let’s get started (in no particular order)!
The Globetrotter Guys
It would be rude not to introduce ourselves first, right?
We are Sion and Ben, a gay married couple from the UK who travel full time to document the best in gay travel, luxury and adventure.
We aim to give in depth gay guides to destinations, showcase the best gay friendly hotels, businesses, brands and shout about all the great gay prides and events happening across the world!
We also try and dig a little deeper into the destinations we visit to connect with the locals and learn more about what gay life is like beyond the tourist bubble – sometimes what we learn is very surprising!
We hope to inspire, educate, promote safety and get more LGBTQ+ people travelling!
The Nomadic Boys have been going for years and are one of the gay travel blogs that inspired us in the first place!
The have travelled extensively and have a wealth of content on many destinations. They have even documented some places where you might not think gay travel is safe at all.

Megan and Whitney (Wegan) are also based in the UK and we met them this year in Chicago.
