Welcome to Gay "Paree"
Over the past 7 years, a revolution has snuck up in the peaceful, elegant and bourgeois Parisian sky. Paris, which is the world’s most visited city, has also become one of the world’s most gay friendly cities. It was the first capital to elect an openly gay mayor in March 2001, and he was re-elected with 57% of the votes in March 2008.
The Parisian Gay Pride March in June 2008 gathered nearly 700,000 people in the streets. Paris remains the city of freedom and tolerance. The gay district is set in the historical center known as "Le Marais." It is one of the most fashionable districts, and most expensive to live in too. It’s now the place to be and stay. With a welcoming attitude to all foreign visitors, Paris now has one of the biggest gay scenes in all of Europe. It has nearly 300 gay-oriented spots for going out, hundreds of excellent restaurants and bars, and more and more opportunities to be guided and welcomed in the beautiful historic center. Whether you’ve never visited Paris, or you’ve stayed there before, you should come visit the city of lights...
