One of the most known gay areas in Madrid is Chueca.As it stood in the past Chueca was considered to be a dangerous place, that is, until the gay community started to live there and breathe life into it.While there are definitely gay barrios within the city, basically everywhere in Barcelona is welcoming and gay friendly.For both Barcelona residents and travelers the city offers a gay and lesbian hotline (900 601 601) as well as the Sex Tienda, a useful resource which lists gay bars, clubs, hotels and restaurants within the city.An estimated sixty-two per cent of Spanish people supported the move to legalize same-sex marriages.This law now gives Spanish-resident same-sex couples the right to marry and the same rights of ownership, inheritance and adoption as married heterosexuals.Due to the new marriage law and the growing support within the country for homosexuality, Spain has become a popular tourist and vacation destination for the gay community.
Although it’s not exclusively a gay area, this is where most of the gay bars, clubs and hostels can be found.
The gay bars and clubs are easily identifiable as they have the internationally recognizable multi-coloured flags hanging from their doors.
For people who don´t want to stick exclusively to the gay clubs in Madrid however and would rather experience an equal mix, Calle Cava Baja (a few minutes walk from the Plaza Mayor) has some great options.
The old shops were turned into trendy new ones and today Chueca is known as the Soho of Madrid with its alternative cafés and restaurants and avant-garde fashion, all geared primarily at gays and lesbians.
The two main streets in Chueca with the most going on are Calle Horteleza and Calle de Fuencarral.
