The Gay Guide to the World
pinQmap is a crowdsourced map of gay bars around the world. The map can be used to find the locations of local gay friendly bars, clubs and cinemas etc.
Like most crowdsourced ventures pinQmap's success will depend on generating a good base of active users. At the moment pinQmap only has really good coverage in a few cities. However users can connect to the map with a Facebook account and add locations to the map, so hopefully the map will continue to develop and grow.
GayCities and The GayMap are two global directories of gay bars and businesses. Both sites allows users to search for gay bars and other businesses by location. In the USA GayBarMaps can help you locate gay bars and events and gay friendly restaurants and lodging.
In Europe German website Patroc has created Google Maps for most of the major European cities to show the location of gay bars and clubs. The individual Gay Maps for each city display the locations of a gay pubs and clubs on a Google Map and list all the venues beneath the map.
