Beep beep, bitch. ICYMI, we're hitting the big 1-5, and you know we're not settling for a quiet night in. We're hitting the road in a big gay bus, grinding our way through ten cities to help you capture the perfect profile pic that'll make peoples’ jaws drop and their pants... well, you know.

We've already made a few pit stops, but don't worry if you haven't gotten a chance to catch a glimpse of our bus(sy) in action. We're just getting started, and we've got enough stamina to keep pounding the pavement all month long. 

Today we're also dishing out the dirty details on what gets each city's blood pumping, the hottest spots to get your freak on, and how to make the most of your next trip to our destination cities—all straight from the mouths of the thirstiest queers in Gay America.

The U.S. of Gay

We all know Pride is more than just rainbow flags and glitter. It's about embracing the unique, sexy, sometimes freaky shit that gets you going—there's no better place to let your freak flag fly than on Grindr.

We did some digging to find out what gets Grindr users hot and bothered from sea to shining sea. And boy, did we uncover some steamy details:

  • Los Angeles is the land of pocket gays —they've got the lowest average height out of all the cities we checked. Proof that bomb D comes in all shapes and sizes. Your height vertical only matters in one place ;).
  • If you're looking for some dirty talk, Chicago is your spot. Chat is their #1 "Looking For" on Grindr—they love sexting up a storm before getting down and dirty.

But why stop there? We asked you filthy animals about your dick size, shoe size, what turns you on (or off), and more. The tea was piping hot:

  • In Phoenix, public play is all the rage and body hair is practically a crime. It's a desert oasis of daring exhibitionists and smooth-as-silk twinks.
  • New York's gays are a different breed entirely, lusting after educated, bald-headed hunks who know their way around a gallery.  If you can't tell your Basquiat from your Banksy, good luck getting laid in the Big Apple.
  • Out in Pittsburgh, it's all about gayming and riding hard in the saddle. These Steel City studs want a vers bottom daddy who can plow like a pro, then swap stories about their Skyrim conquests.
  • In San Francisco, pretty faces and good jokes are the golden ticket. Gotta stimulate both heads, you feel? Serve a big side of personality with your plate of pretty, or you'll be left sobbing into your sourdough.
  • Down yonder in New Orleans, these studs put the big (and maybe even the easy) in Big Easy. Being hung and heady is the best way to earn your beads—making these Southern gentlemen rise to the occasion is no small feat.
  • Fort Lauderdale has the chattiest Cathies on Grindr, sliding into more DMs than a desperate ex. And when they're not blowing up your phone, catch 'em bustin' a move on the dance floor.
  • In Columbus, there's a ginger on every corner, and they all wanna ride in your Subaru Forester. These cornfed cuties are ready to plow more than just fields.
  • And Atlanta gays? These peaches are packing. If you're looking for bubble butt bottoms with a passion for anime, then ATL is your all-you-can-rim buffet. 

The Ultimate Gay Travel Guide:

Forget TripAdvisor, Grindr users are the travel agents when it comes to sniffing out the best spots to eat, drink, sweat, and sleep in these 10 gayborhoods across America. We asked them to vote for their favorite queer-owned businesses, bars, gyms, and gay-friendly hotels in each city—because who knows better than our horniest locals?
