I stayed at the AXEL in Barcelona 5 years ago - and thought WHAT A GREAT CONCEPT!
There have been gay resorts forever in Key West, Palm Springs and Provincetown. Now to have a whole gay hotel in major cities, I think, is an excellent idea.
Maybe it's a age thing. I'm 50. I grew up in a small town in Michigan. As soon as I was 19, I headed for the big city in search of other gay people. The Castro in San Francisco, WeHo in Los Angeles, Boystown in Chicago, all become thriving LGBT communities.
While it is true, gay people have spread out into the masses now, we are not now, nor will we ever be 100% accepted by EVERYONE.

aren't really that perfect yet. We, as LGBT people, still have a lot of
things to worry about when thinking of going out for a night on the
I have many straight friends - but I frequent gay bars more than straight bars. And when I go on vacation, I seek out the gay community in whatever city, what country I am in. It's HOME. It's MY PEOPLE. You know you are among similar people with similar stories.
I LOVE my straight friends - but I do not want to take a straight cruise. While it is true, more and more cities and hotels are now "gay-friendly", rolling out the pink carpet for our dollars, for me given the choice, I try to support my community 100% whenever I can.
