What does hosting for the gay community mean to you and why did you become a host?
Being gay and loving to travel, I can’t see a better way to meet people or feel comfortable than by hosting with misterb&b.
What is your level of interaction with your guests: do you hang out with them, do you show them around?
I love making people feel welcome, and I always try to guide them as best I can with advice on the city, for example, the right places to go and see. If the energy is good, I definitely like to hang out with them.
