Combining immersive photography with expertly researched travel writing, this is the ultimate guidebook for LGBTQ+ travelers-whether you're planning your next getaway, daydreaming from the comfort of your armchair, or seeking to learn about queer culture in other parts of the world.

This swoon-worthy guide to the best places and events the queer world has to offer spans the globe, taking you from metropolitan must-sees, like the Castro in San Francisco or the Leslie Lohman Museum in New York, to lesser-known gems like the McIver Ladies' Baths in Sydney or the first gay bar in Nepal.

Maartje Hensen and a diverse team of international travel writers have put together information on the best drag shows, Pride parades, and film festivals all around the world, as well as resources regarding laws, restrictions, and cultural attitudes-ensuring that travelers can safely enjoy their sojourns and find community wherever they go. Whether you're looking for relaxation, romance, or adventure, The Pride Atlas will help you plan your next gaycation.

SERIOUS EYE CANDY: Bursting at the seams with full-color photographs, The Pride Atlas is a colorful addition to any bookshelf or coffee table. It offers an immersive, take-me-there reading experience, as well as the nuts-and-bolts practical information that will transform armchair travel into actual trip planning.

INCLUSIVE AND INFORMATIVE: Whether you are a drag show fanatic, a gay couple in search of international community, an ally planning an ethical and informed vacation, or a cohort of queers looking for a good time-this is the travel book for you. With information on both festivities for and frustrations facing queer travelers, written by a diverse team of LGBTQ+ travel bloggers, The Pride Atlas is a unique and valuable resource.
