8 gay travel Instagrammers you need to be following in 2019

We love Instagram. We're dead proud of our Nomadic Boys Instagram gallery, especially after it was recognised by Gaycities as one of their top Gay Travel Instagrammers of 2017 and then again in 2018.

To celebrate, we've put together our 8 favourite gay travel Instagrammers you need to be following in 2019.


Barry is a gorgeous Canadian hunk from Toronto. He has some of the best inspirational travel moments in his feed, and his Insta stories beautifully compliment this.

We met Barry in London and then in Toronto where he helped us shoot our video about the gay scene of Toronto. Barry also has a blog called Asian Maple Leaf.

Juan is the cute Colombian guy behind this awesome Instagram account. We met him during our travels in Colombia in Medellin and then in Bogota.

We love Juan because as well as being a really sweet, genuine guy, his account beautifully showcases the highlights of not only his home country Colombia, but also from his other trips around the world.

Ravi Round the World

Ravi is a cutie from Pennsylvania, now living in New York. We met him in St Petersburg, Florida in 2017, and have been following him since.

His profile gives an interesting insight into the different gay cultures around the world, and his Insta Stories are hilarious. Ravi also has a blog called Ravi Round the World.

Attention Jefficit Disorder

Jeff Garber is a hottie based in New York, who meets LGBTQ locals, then creates a series of posts and videos with them. We love this concept and do the same in the Gay Stories section of our blog.

We met Jeff in London during the 2017 WTM Conference and loved hanging out with him.

⭐️ TRAVEL INSURANCE — We recommend you always take out travel insurance before your next vacation. What happens if you suffer from illness, injury, theft or a cancellation? With travel insurance, you can have peace of mind and not worry. We love World Nomads travel insurance and have been using it for years. Their comprehensive coverage is second to none and their online claims process is very user friendly.

⭐️ SAFETY & SECURITY — All travelers (gay or not) can sometimes encounter danger when traveling. CloseCircle is your “virtual body guard” mobile app which provides security alerts and support wherever you are in the world. They have a 24/7 emergency response team monitoring their users who will contact you immediately if the SOS swipe button is activated. Support can include anything from practical advice, to free evacuation from areas with extreme weather or security risks. You can read more about CloseCircle in our article about how to stay safe whilst traveling.

⭐️ ONLINE ANONYMITY — A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a must in many countries: it allows you to surf anonymously and maintain your privacy whilst traveling. You'll particularly need it in countries where gay dating apps are blocked by the government. We recommend ExpressVPN, a reliable and cost effective service which we used and loved during our travels.

⭐️ HOTELS or APARTMENTS — When we plan a trip, we always look for the best hotel deals. We love because not only do they have a comprehensive listing of accommodation options, they also offer the best prices. Added bonus: they provide 24/7 support and free cancellation for most listings.

⭐️ SIGHTSEEING and ADVENTURES — When we travel somewhere, we like to seek out the best experiences, whether it is cooking with locals in Bangkok, hiking on a glacier in Patagonia, or going on a wildlife safari in Sri Lanka. Our favorite place to look is GetYourGuide because they have over 30,000 highly rated activities, a user-friendly booking process with free cancellation and a 24 hour customer support.
