No need to read stuff…
Our aim with GayIberia.com is to keep it as simple as possible, yet have all the info you need. 1. Click on the town you want to go to. 2. Click on what you like in that town; “Bars” for example. You’ll see a comprehensive list of all venues. 3. Click on “More” for full details of the venue. No bells. No whistles. Nothing is further than 3 clicks from this page!!! Its that simple.
Also, wherever possible, we have tried to pick a photo that is most representative of the venue, on the “More” pages. We don’t give opinions on anything, just the facts. We list everything that is gay. We only list “gay-friendly” venues if it is known to be frequented by a good percentage of gay folk, though generally we have steered clear of the countless number of “gay-friendly” places popping up – ya know what I mean. Hotels are the only exception to that rule, but we have made sure they are welcoming to the gay community.
Oh and one last thing. We do a never ending rotation, checking the venues we have listed, to make sure they’re still there. The full cycle takes a few months…there are literally thousands of places listed in this guide. If you can ever tell us about somewhere new, we’d really appreciate it. We’re usually the last to know about somewhere new that’s opened, because everyone assumes we must know, so no one tells us – no kidding! That said, we have our sources and do a pretty good job of keeping on top of it, but please tell us all the same.
