Destination: Beirut

Gay Travel Destination Guide

I was told that Beirut was Gay heaven.   I didn’t quite believe it.  But for Gay male visitors, its mostly true.   Although Gay rights are not recognized and its possible to get arrested for Gay activities, Beirut is alive and happening for Gay men.  There are bas and clubs, after parties and pool parties.  And its easy to meet men on Scruff and Grindr.

The Gay Neighborhood

You won’t see Rainbow Sidewalks, well not yet. But there is a wonderful Gay vibe and a cool creative sensibility in Hamra.   Are you will find Bardo, and well as numerous restaurants, bars, a big Fitness Zone gym with plenty of Gay Men working out, and the welcoming Hamra resturant where most everyone meets up, Cafe Hamra. Plenty of small and midsize hotels in the area.  Adjacent to Hamra towards the sea, you’ll find another the American University and Bliss Street which had many places where students and Gay guys hand out to eat and drink.

The Gay Scene

It is very much a Gay male scene.  Gay men hang out and who out together,  And the guys do go out.   You will find a nice crowd at Bardo most every evening and at Posh Thursday thru Sunday.

And you will find lots of hot and horny guys of all ages on Grindr, Scruff and other apps.   And unlike many places, there are looking and really for sex now.   And they show up, quickly.   You will also find, if so interested, many small and large group sex parties thru the weekend.

While most Gay men are well-educate, accomplished, multi-lingual, fit and good-looking,  most live with and are not out to their families and can’t host.  So many gay Guys, hang out and have sex at their gay friend homes.

There is much Gay social activism and many gay-support groups in Beirut.  There is a Gay Pride week in June with many events.
