Gay Pals in Europa

Jump to last reply

Last night, over a few martinis, I had a tete-a-tete with my gay gal pals, Mark and Devin. They would like to take a whirlwind tour through Europa this May. Being gay, they are very concerned about homophobia and countries where "homosexual acts" are illegal. They certainly don’t want to be arrested and thrown into some horrid prison.

A problem may stem from the fact that Devin is EXTREMELY flamboyant. He tends to wear big brooches or his grandmother’s old cameos on the lapel or his jackets and coats. He also likes brightly coloured shoes—pink, red, mint-green. Mark and Devin like to hold hands in public.

I know that "homosexual acts" aren’t illegal in the countries that belong to the European Union. But, what about the "Baltic" countries and places like Turkey? Could they have a potential problem there?

I would like to hear comments/suggestions from other gays who have travelled to these countries. Also, where can I get information on GAY travel to these countries?

Thank you from your old friend, John G.
