The fave LGBT destinations for 2015?

GayCities announced the winners in its annual “Best of GayCities” challenge. London received the most votes in the “City of the Year” category. Unfortunately – for this list at least – no Asian country made it to the top (GASP!).

GayCities announced the winners in its annual “Best of GayCities” challenge. Nearly 20,000 votes were cast for “great destinations” in 13 categories.

London received the most votes by GayCities readers in the “City of the Year” category, edging Paris by 20 votes. American LGBTQ meccas New York City and San Francisco were awarded for “Singles Scene” and “Showstopping Entertainment,” respectively. Providence, Rhode Island, earned the “Up-and-Coming City” title, putting it on the radar.

Unfortunately – for this list at least – no Asian country made it to the top (GASP!).
