Brazil is very LGBTQ-friendly, and places like Rio and the island Morro de Sao Paulo (in Bahia state) are frequent destinations for LGBTQ travellers.

South Africa, although progressive in many ways (gay marriage is allowed, for example) has been having problems with corrective rape. I would also like to point out (and this goes for everyone) that it's important, before you travel anywhere, to research the country's laws before you visit it. In this case, know which countries have laws that criminalise homossexuality. This graph by the Economist might help: tinyurl. com/b6h24fm


Thanks!

2] sexual preference isn't something plastered on the forehead, but I was wondering if anyone could share some knowledge on the more or less gay friendly places. I'd really appreciate it!


Anyone got suggestions for anon?

1] I know you said we should do our own research but I really like hearing yours and your followers' input. So I'd like to ask what are some places where you'd suggest LGBTQ individuals should be more informed of or more "cautious" towards? Of course

To the anon asking about women traveling alone, I follow a blog called Wandering Souldier that is a girl doing a year-long RTW trip alone. She has been to some fairly female unfriendly places and would likely be glad to offer some tips. Google her!

hey what do you think of traveling alone is that a good idea for a girl?


Of course, as long as you’re safe! I googled around and here are some good tips:

  • Arrive/travel during the day
  • Make hotel reservations etc ahead of time and ask for a room near an elevator so as to avoid long, sketchy hallways alone
  • Plan ahead and know exactly how you’re going to get from point A to point B 
  • Common sense stuff: don’t walk around late at night, put yourself in a vulnerable situation with people you don’t know, ride in empty compartments of trains, etc
  • Exude confidence 
  • Research the culture/language/etc of the place your going to ahead of time
  • Keep in touch and let people at home know where you’re going
  • Pack light (definitely recommend, nothing says ‘derpy tourist’ like hauling huge amounts of luggage on the train)
  • Also, tip from me: carry money/credit cards in more than one place, so if say your purse is stolen or your luggage lost you won’t be completely stranded without money

Storytime: so no1curr but I grew up a quiet, passive child  in a bossy extended family and my entire childhood (and adulthood lbr) of roadtrips and family gatherings I was told where to go and when to show up. I generally don’t mind, but now when I can I prefer going places by myself because I can take my time, set my own agenda, eat where/when I want, etc and it’s quite liberating, (no more bathroom trips every hour! no going to three different fast food restaurants for three different bratty kids! No one to criticize me for getting constantly lost! A hotel room to myself! Yay adulthood) and also ‘cause I’m kind of a hermit who doesn’t mind being alone.

I highly recommend it to anyone if you ever have the chance. I think being comfortable traveling independently is a good life skill to acquire. I’ve road-tripped cross country (well, across a few states anyway) and flew to and from London by myself with no problems. I’ve also road-tripped with my dog which helped me feel safer even though he’s a total, useless coward in any kind of high-stress situation. If you use common sense about where/when you’re going and plan to stay safe, it’s definitely doable!

Hi I just had I question, I want to find someone to write to like a penpal of sorts. I'm from the US but I know that people can be out to get your personal information so I'm a bit wary and I was wondering if you knew of safe websites or maybe ask followers if they knew of a safe place to find a penpal? Thanks so much! :D


That’s a very good question. I don’t know of one off the top of my head, although you can get to know people on tumblr from all over the world without giving private information. I understand the appeal of a snail mail pen pal though! Can my followers help an Anon out?
