Besides the liquor, you probably haven’t heard often about the island of Curacao ... And yet, this island off the coast of Venezuela, in the Caribbean Sea, has in recent years become one of the most gay-friendly destinations in the Caribbean, a region not so famous for its gay-friendlyness.
This state of the Lesser Antilles, which belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, is a relatively unknown destination for Europeans. Yet this small paradise offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, no less than 35 beaches, magnificent dive sites, a tropical climate, untouched by the hurricanes.
As of September 30, the island then hosts the 7th edition of the "Get Wet" festival, its annual gay and "straight-friendly" festival, organized by the local gay organization Gay Plasa, and which offers shows, parties, pool parties and cultural events for a whole week.
The event is being put forward by the Curaçao Tourism Board, as a proof of the willingness of local authorities to promote their destination on the gay market. The island is the territory of the Caribbean with the most members of the IGLTA, the international gay and lesbian tourism association.
