  • Amsterdam has been the 'gay capital' of Europe for decades. The live and let live attitude of its citizens, numerous gay bars and parties and the annual gay pride which attracts millions to the city have all contributed to this. The number of gay and lesbian bars has recently been on the decline as being openly gay is pretty much accepted in the majority of non-gay bars, and therefore the need for separate places to hang out is seen as unnecessary by younger gays and lesbians. But don't let this put you off, there are still more than enough places to hang out - and don't be surprised to find that a large percentage of the customers in gay/lesbian bars are heterosexuals! When it comes to sexuality, there really are no barriers any more - it's often more to do with the kind of vibe you're looking for that determines the bar you go to, with the gay bars of Amsterdam offering a very international and friendly scene.
