Whether it's the bustle of New York or the Mayan ruins of Tulum, often one vacation spot resonates with us and becomes a favourite travel memory. 

We asked 20 gay celebrities, business people and movers and shakers, "What is your favourite gay travel destination?"

"I’ve not done the gay destination thing, yet. But on any given vacation of mine, things can get quite gay quite fast. Backpacking Europe, I found myself in the Marais in Paris. French boys. Denim. Whisky. Marlboro Lights. Strippers. Glass bar-top showers. Underground mosh pits. Euro dance beats. A French boy. Sunrise. La Seine. Walk of pride. Bonne nuit!" — Adamo Ruggiero, actor/host/producer
