Finding an LGBTQ-friendly excursion is a lot less difficult today than it may have been in years past. Travel plans aren’t simply relegated to large urban communities but include many opportunities to get away that are off the beaten path. Tropical, urban, rustic, island, mountainous … a plethora of options await you as you plan your next escape.
For an island retreat, consider making your way to the Greek isle of Mykonos to enjoy the food and the nightlife known for its wild side. Head to Salt Spring Island in Canada for a mountain-esque escape that also offers plenty of coast line. This Gulf isle is located off British Columbia, a short ferry ride to Victoria, and offers secluded beaches along with miles of hiking trails. Or, make your trek of the tropical variety by visiting Saba, a Caribbean island that supports same-sex marriage and offers a well-preserved natural landscape and unspoiled beaches. For urban excitement, a long weekend in Montreal will do the trick with its abundance of pride celebrations, bustling art scenes, and lively clubs. For a visit with extra flavor, plan your trip to coincide with the Montreal Fetish Weekend, filled with fantasy and adventure.
