What does hosting for the gay community mean to you and why did you become a host?
We both love to travel and have lots of hospitality experience, so when we saw the opportunity to be creative, meet guys from all over the world, and get paid, we jumped at the chance! We love entertaining and sharing fun experiences with the guys we meet.

What is your level of interaction with your guests: do you hang out with them, do you show them around?
We like to make things as relaxed and as easy as possible. We operate self check-in, and send detailed information for guests. However, we’re also available if guys want to meet face-to-face to find out more. We also offer cocktails and dinner! Everything's homemade with love, perfect for those who want something a bit more personal.

In your opinion what attracts guests to your city
Brighton is the gay capital of the UK, and is known all over the world for its vibrant, diverse and very cool scene that offers something for everyone. Come for the biggest pride festival in August where the whole city transforms. There is so much creativity in this city.
Your best memory of a guest?
Two of our closest friends were guests when we first hosted. They’d just moved to the city and were looking to rent somewhere more permanent. They stayed with us while looking, and have become best friends of ours.
Do you feel more involved with the LGBTQ community since you started hosting?
I work for a gay charity in the city, so hosting the gay community felt easy and it’s great to share this knowledge of the community with our guests. The gay community is very important to me, and it’s great that we have an opportunity like this to meet others and share our home and creative ideas.
What's the nicest thing a guest has ever done for you? Do they ever bring gifts?
We’ve had so many gifts from homemade produce, to books, chocolates and placemats! Making friends with people who offer to host us at their home in return is always a nice, welcomed perk!
How has hosting impacted your life?
Hosting means we’re financially more comfortable and we have more funds to invest into our home. This means we can get really creative with what we do.
