Berlin is an incredibly gay city: one needn't go to a gay bar or wait out the Gay Dance Party to find like-oriented companions. Almost every establishment and party feels queer or, at the very least, queer-friendly. Don't be surprised if you rack up more winks on the subway during your time in Berlin than you have the rest of your life! The general day-to-day fluidity and flirtatiousness of the city can even inspire visitors to experiment when the opportunity presents. Nonetheless, Berlin hosts countless parades and events throughout the year that display on an even larger scale the deep-rooted acceptance and sexual adventurousness that is part and parcel to all of its culture, party and otherwise.
