PRIDE: The Best Inclusive Destinations for LGBTQ+ Travellers

Banff & Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada
Canada has been voted the most gay-friendly country in the world, so it is no surprise that some Canadian destinations are loved by LGBTQ+ travellers. Banff and Lake Louise are located within the Rocky Mountains and are some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. They are well known for their year-round adventure and wellness credentials. 
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Boston makes for a great destination for gay travellers; founded in 1630, the city is the shining jewel in Massachusetts’ crown, and a perennial favourite for those seeking exceptional culture, dining, history, and arts. This city is more than just tolerant of LGBTQ+ travellers – Massachusetts was the first US state to legalize same-sex marriage in 2004. 
Hawaii, USA
The islands of Hawaii are the perfect holiday spot whatever you are looking for. The capital of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, holds its own Pride parade every year and is also home to some iconic gay friendly venues including Bacchus and Chiko’s Tavern. If you are looking for more rest and relaxation during your trip, the neighbouring islands of Kauai or Maui offer crystal clear water, white sand beaches, incredible waterfalls and beautiful scenic drives. 
San Francisco, California, USA
LGBTQ+ history and culture are synonymous with San Francisco, in fact, around one in six people who call the city home identify as gay. The Castro neighbourhood, home to the celebrated LGBTQ+ activist and politician Harvey Milk, is still the hub of the action, where you’ll find a cornucopia of affirming bars, restaurants and cafes as well as the celebrated Castro Theatre. 
Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico really does have it all; from relaxing on the beach, exploring some of the island’s great nightlife options or exploration of a different kind through the El Yunque Rainforest or kayaking in the bays. For a slice of old Caribbean charm mixed with world-class dining and nightlife, the capital of San Juan is hard to beat. 
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
The cosmopolitan city of Vancouver is a tourist’s dream, with its stunning mountain and ocean scenery. The city is home to one of the largest LGBTQ+ communities in Canada and gay tourists will feel especially at home in the Davie Village and West End areas of downtown with their rainbow crossings and Pride flags abound, at any time of the year! The city does have its own Pride parade, which usually takes place in July.
