Gay Male at LGBTQ+ Pride Event

Fifty-four years ago, the legendary Stonewall Riots swept through the United States and demanded equal rights for all citizens, no matter what gender they loved or chose to identify as. Those very protests, marches, and rebellions led to worldwide LGBTQ+ acceptance. Now in 2023, members of the LGBTQ+ community around the globe can express their rights and freedoms with pride. 


At Dynamite Travel, we wish you a warm and joyful LGBTQ+ Pride month. Let us assist you in vacationing to a paradise of pride for a joyous month you’ll never forget. Here are the top travel destinations to explore during LGBTQ+ Pride Month.

Gay Men in Vieques Puerto Rico

1. Vieques, Puerto Rico

As the home of the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world, it’s no wonder that Vieques, Puerto Rico, shines through Pride Month. This gorgeous island contains marvels of the natural world, historical monuments of the distant past, and plenty of luxurious accommodations for any traveler. When it comes to LGBTQ+ inclusivity, no island does it quite like Vieques. 


Other islands might offer hotels or resorts to catch your eye, but Vieques holds something truly unique. The Casa de Amistad, an 8-room guest house in the heart of the island, is owned by local gay couple John Holden and Mike Leanardo. Their love is imminent throughout the house, as the Casa de Amistad is known as one of the most welcoming homes on the island. Stay at this gorgeous dwelling and feel the love and care of its LGBTQ+ origins.


After unpacking your belongings in the Casa de Amistad, traverse the rest of the island for its LGBTQ+ wonders. Many shops, cafes, restaurants, and tours are owned by members of the LGBTQ+ community, further integrating this wonderful pride into your vacation. One of the most popular facilities on the island is Black Beard Sports: an action-packed sports center offering diving, snorkeling, biking, hiking, kayaking, and more. Owned by a lesbian couple, Black Beard Sports now contains a diverse and extravagant team ready to guide you through an exciting Pride Month. 


Other notable LGBTQ+ businesses on Vieques include:

  • Mama Mia: An authentic Italian restaurant owned by Joel, an avid LGBTQ+ ally
  • Rising Roost: A highly rated restaurant known for its divine coffees and delicious breakfasts.
  • Mar Azul: An extravagant Caribbean bar with drinks, dances, and fun for every member of the LGBTQ+ community
  • And more!


And, of course, what trip to Vieques is complete without a visit to the famous Mosquito Bay? It’s the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world, meaning a luxurious kayak tour is a must during your stay. This Pride Month, celebrate the bright future of the LGBTQ+ community by visiting the most vivid bay in the world.

As the host for 2023 World Pride, it’s no wonder Sydney, Australia, is the place to visit this Pride Season. This stunning city is home to glamorous events, endless activities, deluxe tours, and constant wonders. Sydney, Australia has something for every member of the LGBTQ+ community.


One of the most notable attractions for the LGBTQ+ community is Oxford Street. Home of the annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Oxford Street is packed with pride year-round.

From June 7th through the 12th, Curaçao will celebrate 10 years of LGBTQ+ pride. Boat trips, festivals, pool parties, parades, and more will sweep through the island.

Gay Pride in Stiges Spain

5. Sitges, Spain

Known affectionately as “Spain’s Gayest Town” by citizens and tourists alike, Sitges, Spain is the most magical place to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride. With a festive celebration of love occurring from June 14th through the 18th (including an unforgettable parade on the 18th), Sitges proves itself to be one of the proudest cities on the planet. 


The Playa de la Bassa Rodona is known as the main gay beach of Sitges – and for good reason. Locals of all sexual identities can often be found lounging on a nearby sunbed, drinking from one of the many beer and cocktail bars, or dancing to live music. To truly join the fun, consider staying at one of the many beachside resorts. We recommend the Indigo Villa: a beautiful estate with a private garden, pool, and parking space.
