Best gay monuments around the world!

When we’re travelling, thanks to or on our own, we’re always trying to see the sights and visit museums – and, of course, to catch sight of the popular monuments near our destinations. But we often forget (or don’t know anything about) gay monuments – that is, monuments dedicated to LGBT rights, struggles and victories. There are more than a dozen scattered all over the world!
