This weekend saw the UK host two of the largest Gay Pride festivals in Liverpool and Brighton, celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life. Both cities will hold a parade and open air festival, featuring stages and street stalls accompanied by various arts and cultural events throughout the cities.
In honour of the two events, hotel comparison website Trivago.co.uk has put together a list of our nine favourite gay friendly hotels worldwide. Some of these accommodations are pioneering gay only hotels, whilst some market themselves towards the gay community and some are located in destinations popular amongst gay travellers.
From an urban resort in New York City with a 5,000 square feet spa, to a rooftop pool and bar in Barcelona or unbeatable location between the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest in Australia, these destinations promise something a little different. Whether you would like to budget with a comfortable quadruple room, or splash out on a luxurious suite with a private terrace, there is something for everyone here.
