Puerto Vallarta’s annual Gay Pride just made the top 50 list of rising trending Pride events in the world! Puerto Vallarta just completed a hugely attended 5th annual pride in May 2018. Not surprising, Puerto Vallarta’s highest 2 scores were from the LGBT Nightlife and Accommodations category *mainly our affordability among accomodations.
LGBT Nightlife Score: HomeToGo used online mapping tools, events listings websites, and city guides to identify LGBT-friendly bars, clubs, and parties in each of the 50 cities. The city with the highest number of LGBT-friendly bars, clubs, and parties was awarded a maximum score of 10, and every other city was awarded a score based on the equation above.
Accommodation Score: HomeToGo consulted a global collection of LGBT-friendly hotels approved by the IGLTA to look at the number of LGBT friendly hotels in each of the 50 cities. The city with the highest number of LGBT-friendly hotels was awarded a maximum score of 10, and every other city was awarded a score based on the equation above. In addition, using HomeToGo’s own meta-search data, they researched the affordability of accommodation in each of the 50 cities during their Pride festivities. The city with the most affordable accommodation was awarded a maximum score of 10, and every other city was awarded a score based on the equation above. The overall Accommodation Score is a combination of these two research points, divided by two.
HomeToGo has created a special guide to the top 50 rising stars in which to celebrate Pride this year. After reviewing hundreds of locations around the world, they created a final shortlist by researching five categories: The annual growth rate of the Pride festival, the number of LGBT events, the quality of local LGBT nightlife, and the availability of affordable LGBT-friendly accommodation. They also connected with leading LGBT industry bodies, influencers, journalists, and entrepreneurs to learn more about their favorite trending Prides, and why celebrating in these destinations is important. We’re excited to introduce the top 50 Trending and upcoming pride events worldwide.
