The Gaybassadors’ community

Gaybassadors are friendly locals, with a real knowledge of their city history, culture, habits and a personal experience of gay local life. All of them are passionate about the place they live in and most of them already love to show/share their city with their friends and family. They make travellers discover the well-known areas and monuments but also all the secret places that just local people know about, away from common sightseeing.

Gaybassadors.com is not a travel agency but an intermediary between gay/gay friendly locals and travellers. Therefore, we do not offer the usual tourists guided tour with umbrellas, but a quality personalised lifestyle tour for singles, couples or small groups of friends (4 persons maximum).


Gaybassador offer through their listing a very clear and precise program for a 2, 3 or 4 hours visit. Then they can adapt to the personality, previous experience, special needs or interests of travellers. Each Gaybassadors has to offer / show :

4 main historical spots of his city  

4 facts, tips, stories related with gaylife 

4 smart places and local tips : restaurants, shops, markets, design, shows ...

4 gay places that locals love : bars, clubs, beach ...

Some Gaybassadors are professional guides who want to show more than main landmarks of the city and to experience something special, after their visits with big groups.

100 Gaybassadors are now registered in our website and this number is growing every day… All profiles and listings are reviewed by our team in order to guarantee a positive experience to travellers. After the visit, travellers can rate their visit, send feedbacks, suggestions and comments to enhance trust over the platform and Gaybassadors’ services.

 

Gaybassadors.com is focused on increasing its supply and recruiting new Gaybassadors, improving its offer and website.
