Gay men have different travel wishes.
The best confirmation of this is the unique success story
of the SPARTACUS INTERNATIONAL GAY GUIDE, which
has been published for more than four decades
The current edition of the SPARTACUS
International Gay Guide features approximately
22.000 addresses on 1.300 pages which are of
interest for gay men. Whether these addresses
are hotels in Israel, bars in South Africa or discos
in Sweden – no other Guide offers to such
extensive information about places in which the
gay man feels welcome and can be himself.
A refined code system, created as abbreviations
and pictograms, offers information about that,
which one can expect and where. In addition
each country is introduced with a short,
informative text, which describes the legal and
social position of homosexuals.
In order to guarantee the actuality of the data,
the SPARTACUS editorial team undertakes
extensive research throughout the year, with
the result that the information in SPARTACUS is
usually even more up‐to‐date and reliable than
those on the Internet. Regardless where one is going – with the
SPARTACUS INTERNATIONAL GAY GUIDE one is
always up to date. And for those who find the guide still is not compact enough: from March 2011 the
complete offer of the clever Guides will be available as an App for your iPhone (spartacusworld.com)
