Cannonball into the balmy Adriatic. Bite into Europe’s unsung culinary hero. And wander medieval cities and posh ports. All on our annual Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise.

Below you’ll find an introduction to the aforementioned cities and ports we’ll enjoy on this continuously sold-out voyage. And if by blog’s-end we’ve piqued your interest, swim over to Stays that Slay: Cruising Croatia for a deep visual dive into the MV Futura — the private yacht we’ll indulge in for the length of our stay.

How Argentina Became a Leader in LGBT Rights

Argentina has become a world-leader in LGBT rights. And it has nothing to do with Madonna’s memorable portrayal of the famed former first lady, Eva Perón.

Homosexuality has been legal in the country since 1887. In 2010, it became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage. And in 2012, it became legal to change one’s gender without surgery. Not to mention other hot topics such as blood donation, adoption, anti-discrimination policies all checking out in favour of us homos.

According to Equaldex, when Argentineans were asked “Should society accept homosexuality?”, 77% said “Yes”!

How did Argentina become so progressive, you ask. Well, it’s difficult to say exactly, but four key factors seem to play the largest roles.

10 Years of New Frontiers

A Letter from Rob:

More than a decade ago, Co-founder Steven Larkin and I embarked on a journey to offer adventurous and meaningful gay tours that give back to the communities we visit (click here for the full story).

Here we are today with hundreds of tours under our belt, 60+ countries visited, and countless friendships formed. All thanks to our loyal travellers, many of whom are now family. Together, we’ve scaled mountains, explored cultures, conquered the open seas, devoured street food, and had some of the most, um, interesting dinnertime conversations (said conversations being a personal highlight).

2019 marks ten years since we touched down in Bangkok on our first tour and I am absolutely thrilled to announce ten new tours to celebrate the milestone. Curated by yours truly and hosted by members of our team, these are set to be spectacular sojourns.

So, take your pick: polar dip with Kevin in Antarctica, hike Mount Pico in the Azores with Carl, journey through the Canadian Rockies with Lino, or get soaking wet with me during Thailand’s Songkran Festival, where it all began. 

Scroll down for a complete list of our anniversary tours.

Cheers to Ten Years!
