Trends / LGBTQ

Malmö is the third-largest city in Sweden and has a reputation for being one of the most open and accepting in Europe. This little melting pot of a town is home to people from all over the world and boasts an LGBTQ+-friendly atmosphere that locals and visitors love.

 

Unlike many larger cities, Malmö doesn’t have a gay district where you’re certain to find members of the community mingling throughout the day. Instead, you’ll find little pockets of them all throughout its beautiful streets. Of course, that doesn’t mean there aren’t places for the community to cut loose and have some fun.

Wonk is arguably the city’s most popular LGBTQ+ bar. It features three dance floors and three bars, boasting the biggest party in Malmö on the weekends. There’s also Cabaret Moulin, a slightly more laidback joint with the city’s greatest drag performances. While the city also hosts its own annual Pride event, it’s notable there are currently plans in place for Malmö to host the world’s largest event in partnership with nearby Copenhagen beginning in 2021.

 

A wealth of parks, museums and outdoor art exhibits mean there’s no shortage of fun things to see and do in the city. Malmö might not have the largest LGBTQ+ scene, but it’s still one of the greatest destinations for the community in all of Europe.

Medical Products You Probably Don’t Need to Pack

The internet is teeming with countless listicles that advise you on what to pack for your next vacation, especially when it comes to products to help you stay safe and healthy while miles away from home. But there are some medical products you might not really need, despite the overflow of suggestions.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
