Copenhagen launches site to attract gay travelers

Denmark, and Copenhagen in particular, has long been known for its tolerance, and fully diversified social life. The country was the first in the world to create a National Association for Gays and Lesbians way back in 1948. In 1989 Denmark had another first when it recognized marriage between two people of the same sex. Then in 1999 it became possible for married gays to adopt the children of their partners.

So it’s not surprising that Copenhagen was named one of the world’s top 7 most gay-friendly destinations, by “Hotel & Resort Insider” in 2009. Now, for those gay and lesbian travelers who somehow missed out on realizing what Copenhagen had to offer, the city has launched a site providing in-depth information on everything it has to offer the LGBT community, and there’s lots! It even allows you to customize the information it provides based on the person’s particular interests.

Pink Choice currently lists several gay and gay friendly hotels in Copenhagen including the Square Hotel and Hotel Cabinn Metro, but we are always anxious to add more, so if you have recently stayed elsewhere, or know of other gay and lesbian lodging options in the city, please post a review.
