Get Wet (and Gay) in Curaçao this Week

With a few noteworthy exceptions, the Caribbean is not known for being super gay friendly. The former Dutch colony and currently among the world’s youngest nations, the sun-drenched island of Curaçao has been reaching out to the LGBT travel segment for several years.

One of their signature events is the Get Wet Weekend (now a full week). We are smack in the middle of it now (it kicked off October 2) but if you feel like a quick weekend jaunt there is still a major event this coming Saturday, October 8 (the Drag Queen Competition).

Curaçao became an independent nation on October 20, 2010 (10/10/10).
