This question came up on a destination forum - and I think it might be better answered here.
If someone were to ask you "What is a gay friendly place we could stay at..." what criteria do you use to determine if it is gay friendly or not?
Is it if it is gay owned? Advertises in gay publications? Is it a feeling you get from the advertisements or their staff?
I said I know it when I feel it - but I think it may be something that non-gay people might not pick up on. But I think it's more than a well placed rainbow flag :) What do you all think?
