When it comes to gay travel tips, one of our newest tips is to check out gay hashtags on Instagram relevant to your current destination or simply to get inspired about where you can safely travel to next.
Why is checking Gay Hashtags on Instagram useful?
Checking gay hashtags on Instagram can be especially useful when you are in a destination that does not have a gay scene or has a gay scene which is a bit hidden.
For example, Split in Croatia doesn’t have the biggest gay scene, but checking gay hashtags like #gaycroatia or #gaysplit would be a good start to see where the local gay guys might hang out, if there are any one off gay events or where to find spots of interest that other gay travellers have found.
We would use #gaycroatia when we post on Instagram about our gay sailing trip around Croatia in 2020 (which you can join!), so if a gay traveller is looking into Croatia they would see that there is an option to join a group of other gay guys and go on a gay sailing trip there.
Generic gay hashtags on Instagram such as #gaytravel are also useful to help find destinations that are most likely to be welcoming to gay travellers – you can see that a gay person has travelled there safely and if they have a public profile, you can reach out and ask them for advice and tips.
Lets get started with our list of the best gay hashtags to use on Instagram:
