Here’s the 2018 Asian Gay Pride Calendar of Events, providing great gay travel destinations with plenty of Gay events.
Sometimes, planning a vacation can be daunting, even has been known to create stress and tension. I speak from personal past experience here.
Knowing that you can co-ordinate your travel plans with a major event, can make the choice easier. It also, can have the potential, to turn your vacation into a memorable experience. Thus, increasing the odds, that your vacation is truly a Gay friendly event. Ensuring that you will have plenty to do, if you choose to do so. It’s always nice to know that you have plenty of Gay events to attend.

Create your own Gay Vacation Cocktail

Usually Pride festivities offer many events that can take you from morning to night. Now, mix in a little site seeing and a perfect gay vacation cocktail is created. Of-course it always depends on what you are looking for in a vacation, but with many options, you can create exactly the experience you want. Perhaps even adding a pleasant surprise or two, to your gay vacation cocktail. Like creating new friendships, having a romantic adventure, or even meeting your soul mate.

Have a memorable vacation

I personally can’t begin to count the numerous and enduring friendships that I have fostered on my vacations. Some as old as 20 years. They are from all over Canada, the US and the UK. I would never have met them, if it weren’t for, planning my Gay vacations around some of these Gay festivities. They have transformed my vacations and my life. I can never convey into words, what this has done for me and my life partner. We are truly blessed with these friendships and I wish this upon you my reader. That’s why I have listed below, the Gay pride calendar of events with destinations that I have featured as great Gay-safe places to visit.
