Why is Barcelona so gay?

We met Kyle Brands in Barcelona, a young guy studying International Tourism Management and Consultancy in Holland. He is writing a thesis about the acceptance of homosexuality and the influence on gay men’s identity and he talked to one of our tour guides, Eloi Morte.

Barcelona is one of the ‘pink cities’ and one of the 5 biggest gay scene cities in the world, says Eloi. Spain is very open minded and friendy, especially Barcelona. The politicians support the gay community since 1998 the first law in Catalonia for supporting the gay community was accepted and in 2005 Spain was one of the first countries in the world to legalize the gay-marriage. Last march one disco in Barcelona was sued for not letting transsexuals entering the club, and the transsexuals won the court. This shows that the people in Barcelona fight for the gay rights.

The Catalan people are really involved in the gay scene of Barcelona. That allows Rainbow Barcelona to bring costumers and let the world know everyone is welcome in Barcelona, gay people can hold hands and kiss in the street if they feel like doing so and no one is even going to turn around because they are used to it. The popularity of Barcelona did increase due to the popularity of Sitges back in the 70s and 60s. Sitges was a very popular town where all the bohemian people, writers, sculptors, architects went to during the dictatorship time, in order to be gay and see other gay people. This really helped Barcelona a lot to become what it is now.

At least 50% of the gay tourist are closed in their own country about their sexuality, so they come to Barcelona and feel free and are who they are. Eloi sees that some tourist, once they arrive in Barcelona, dress the way they want to dress, party the way they want to party, they download gay applications on their phone, and do the things they see others can do here and are normal.

The fact that Eloi works, as a gay men, with gay travellers, lead to that they are more friendly as they feel empathy towards each other and feel more comfortable. They can talk about anything; saunas, cruising areas, gay bars, gay clubs, information about the city, so the people feel really comfortable with that. That is what they write in the comments about the company as well. The heterosexual community is more concerned about what to see during the tour, and after the tour it ends, they do not tend to have any relationship with the tour guide or company.

Rainbow Barcelona is not only adding something during the tour itself, but cares about the tourist during their whole stay in Barcelona.

While planning a tour it is important that the tourist see everything they want to see as a tourist, but next to that, all the gay information is given. The best bars, restaurants, clubs, areas, are told and maps and discounts are given. Eloi tells them that the community is very safe and they do not need to worry about being gay in Barcelona.

“It’s not a city or a country that you visit, it is a lifestyle”

“Coming to Barcelona as a gay tourist is not just a holiday, it is a whole package that creates an experience”

Also if you are not staying within the gay area, gay tourist do not need to be afraid of not feeling welcome as 80% of the accommodations of Barcelona is gay friendly. This because of the fact that the gay-scene in Barcelona is very present, and the gay tourist is an interesting target market to focus at. The first hetero-friendly hotel opened its doors last year, and the second one is going to open next year. Hetero-friendly hotels show that they are accepting all the LGBT and straight tourist.

    To help with your sleep apnea, you need to consult with your doctor about the best CPAP machine to use. Take into consideration both the noise and size of the CPAP machine. Some machines are smaller than a bread box and can be whisper quiet. Your doctor should be able to point you in the right direction of a capable machine.

    If you are over weight, going on a diet can reduce your sleep apnea, or in rare cases, eliminate it completely. Maintaining a healthy weight can help you breathe easier, so losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight when you have trouble breathing is an obvious step in treating your sleep apnea.

    Do not take sleeping pills if you suffer from sleep apnea. These pills are not recommended if you suffer from this condition because they relax the muscles of your throat. Skipping them can actually help you get a better night of sleep because your apnea symptoms are not aggravated.

    An excellent way to help lessen the effects of sleep apnea is by losing weight. Sometimes, losing weight is all it takes to get rid of sleep apnea. Even a nominal amount of weight loss will go a long way in improving your breathing at night.

    For people who smoke, the best way to correct a sleep apnea condition is to quit smoking. Smoking is one of the biggest causes of sleep apnea. When people stop smoking their risk of sleep apnea is reduced and they can get a full night sleep within days of quitting.

    If you are a trucker who has sleep apnea, take precautions to stay safe on the road. First of all, get yourself properly diagnosed and treated. If your doctor prescribes a CPAP, use it.

  6. Do you feel like you have tried everything possible in order to lose weight? You are not alone–many people have the same problem. The following article is designed to give you tips that you may not have even known existed. By following these tips, you will reach your weight loss goal in no time.

  7. Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

    The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

    The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

    When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

    The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.
