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

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

Don’t expect anything less from a city that swears by the philosophy “live and let live.”

A pioneer in promoting an equal and inclusive society, the Netherlands is the first country to legalize same-sex marriage (in 2001) and has long been a top-of-mind destination for the LGBT community, and its capital, Amsterdam, is the place to be. From crazy nightclubs to quirky museums, the city — especially the quarters of Amstel, Kerkstraat, Reguliersdwarsstraat, and Warmoesstraat and Zeedijk — is replete with pockets of adventure for the queer. Hop on to gayamsterdam.com for up-to-date gay guides to the city.
