in fact, being gay is now mainstream.
This freedom of self-expression is one of the many reasons that people choose to attend a gay cruise. However, with such a large array of gay men from around the world in attendance, stereotypes begin to emerge and the ‘freedom’ is taken too far.
One of the highlights of a gay cruise are the nightly themed parties. Just like the infamous circuit parties of gay hotspots around the world, drugs, alcohol and sex play a large part.
On the cruise, self-expression allows passengers to explore themselves through themes; from drag to leather and beyond.
But, while the men on board are playing with their ‘usual’ appearance, what goes on behind closed doors can often be business as usual in some cases.
