Berlin, Germany, Europe – Berlin has a long history of gay culture, and is an important birthplace of the LGBT rights movement. Gay bars and dance halls operated freely as early as the 1880s, and the first gay magazine, Der Eigene, started in 1896. By the 1920s, gays and lesbians had an unprecedented visibility. Today, the decadence of the roaring 20s has returned and the city again has a huge number of gay clubs and festivals.
Schöneberg, southwest of the city centre is the main hive of LGBT activity, though there are 5 areas around the city with a scattering of gay venues.
