What does hosting for the gay community mean to you and why did you become hosts?
We truly believe in supporting LGBTI travelers in having a safe and enjoyable stay in Melbourne. We love meeting new people and introducing them to our city.
What is your level of interaction with your guests: do you hang out with them, do you show them around?
We gauge from our guests how much interaction they require. Sometimes we hang out with them, but many want to explore our city independently. Whatever the interaction may be, we make sure all guests feel at home.
Tell us about interesting people you have met through misterb&b
We have been hosts for four years and have met many interesting people from Europe, America and also fellow Australians. From lawyers and IT specialists, to a crazy Drag Queen on holiday, we've welcomed a variety of people to our home.
In your opinion what attracts guests to your city
Melbourne is the cultural capital of Australia, and is famous for its café lifestyle. The gay life is vibrant, and once you scratch its surface you'll find that its very liberal indeed.
How has hosting impacted your life?
The financial and social reward has been immense. We have also developed a good sense of what it means to contribute to a connected LGBTI community.
