With festivals aplenty, vibrant and growing cities and some unforgettable outdoor experiences, LGBTQ travelers from around the world are discovering that Alberta can be pretty fabulous.

Writers and bloggers from a number of prominent LGBTQ publications have visited the province recently and left raving about it.

Passport magazine

Passport magazine, the gay travel culture, style and adventure magazine that is one of the largest publications of its kind in the world, recently sent Toronto writer Steven Bereznai to spend time exploring Alberta’s LGBTQ travel destinations, with a final destination the province’s capital of Edmonton.

Bereznai enjoyed Calgary’s budding urban scene, the stunning beauty of Banff, and was unexpectedly delighted by the vibrancy of Edmonton and its gay scene. His final verdict: “I’m going to have to come back,” he wrote.

Mr. Hudson

Mr. Hudson, the international website “all about destinations for gays, but not necessarily gay destinations,” recently spent time in Calgary and came away with a newfound appreciation for Alberta’s largest city.

In Calgary, the publication’s David Duran wrote, “most places are filled with all walks of life . . . people are nice and like to spend time together, they are Canadian after all.”

Couple of Men

Meanwhile, Karl and Daan, the German-Dutch gay travel bloggers based in Amsterdam known as Couple of Men, brought their trademark playfulness to Alberta and managed to have fun all over the province. From wearing a Jurassic Park T-shirt at Drumheller’s famous Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology to a Star Trek experience in Calgary’s Telus Spark to a novel experience climbing a frozen waterfall as part of the mountain town of Jasper’s mid-winter Pride festival, the duo certainly made the most of their time.

Of their icy experience in Jasper, the couple was dazzled. “The dark green color of the dense Canadian Forest and the formations of the Rocky Mountains as backdrop left us speechless,” they wrote. “This beauty is just beyond words so surreal unique, impressive and powerful. You have to see it to really believe it.”
