MisterBnb is the AirBnb Alternative for Gay Travel
MisterBnb is a gay travel site where we can rent without the hassle of bias or rejection. Basically it’s a gay Airbnb. The great thing is that you can now book travel knowing you are being hosted by LGBT family and know they’re not someone who disagrees with our lifestyle.
MisterBnb is the perfect website for gay couples to find a beautiful place to stay in their downtime. The slogan speaks for itself with “Travel With Pride.” You can take your man or other guys back to your room without feeling judged (for the most part). You can search for gay destinations such as Soho in London, the Marais in Paris or Le Village in Montreal and look up properties beyond the typical gay neighborhoods.
The website (and now app) was started by a Frenchman Matthieu Jost and his partner after they rented a room in Barcelona through the popular rental site Airbnb. They had an uncomfortable welcome because they were a gay couple, and the situation prompted them to return home to Paris the next day.
Misterbnb has now reached over 50,000 gay hosts to choose from in major cities, the countryside, near gay pride events, honeymoon retreats, or as an exotic vacation. As Airbnb and the sharing economy have grown over the past few years this is a great alternative to meet new people with the same interests you may not have with the other apps. Wimbify is a similar LGBT app but hosts act more as ambassadors. We also enjoy the weekly emails from Misterbnb as they offer great travel tips (see below).
