Love Wins Here: The World’s Most LGBT-Friendly Holiday Destinations

Here are some of the world’s most inclusive cities.

The most gay-friendly country according to the Pew Research Center’s poll in 2013 and one of the consistently top-performing model nations for homosexuals as studied by Brussels-based advocacy group International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA)-Europe, there’s no denying that Spain is the place to be if you want your pride to shine through.

Find the hubs of gay life in Madrid and Barcelona, where parties are wild, gastronomy is superb, and same-sex couples can freely express affection towards each other without locals batting an eye. For the full-on fiesta experience, visit Sitges, a popular beach resort destination in the south of Barcelona, where gays take the spotlight at the annual rambunctious week-long celebration that is the Carnaval (8-14 February in 2018).
