Gay Iceland

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Think gay vacations and you might not think of Iceland as a destinaton, but just take a look at what the country has to offer gay and lesbian travelers. With the first openly lesbian prime minister, Icelanders have endorsed the LGBT community, and welcome diverse visitors.

Iceland celebrates a number of LGBT events throughout the year including Reykjavik Gay Pride in August, Bears on Ice in September, Pinkmas in December/January and Rainbow Reykjavick in January/February. Details of these events can be found at Pink Iceland.

Pink Choice would welcome reviews of gay and gay-friendly hotels in Iceland, so if you head there, please tell us about your experience.

Carnival Time in Provincetown

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

August is here and so is Carnival time in Provincetown. The events kick off on Sunday August 12 and run through August 17, with the eagerly anticipated parade taking to Commercial Street on Thursday 16th. With this year’s carnival theme being ‘A Space Odyssey’ there will be plenty of scope for many elaborate floats!

Provincetown will be packed for the events, so if you’re heading to the Cape, you would be advised to make sure you have secured your accommodation, as rooms will be hard to find. Remember, we want to hear about your lodging experience, so please don’t forget to post your hotel reviews.

A full schedule of Carnival events can be found at the Provincetown Business Guild’s website.
