Ben is the new Spartacus Ambassador
The international travel guide for gay and bisexual men: the Spartacus International Gay Guide, now in its 45 year, offers tourists not only a worldwide list of bars, hotels, saunas, beaches and self-help groups but also provides an overview of the applicable laws on homosexuality around the world.
For the 26-year-old Ben the classic among the gay travel guides already had a special significance for him as teenager: when he discovered and bought his first copy of the Spartacus in his home town of Villingen-Schwenningen it was an important step in his coming-out.
Today he is the face on the new edition of the Spartacus. Ben travels a lot and enjoys being on the move. Even the love of his life: his Irish partner, he met on Mykonos. Those who travel around so much in the world are also often asked for travel tips from their circle of friends. “With friends I sometimes feel like I am myself an international gay guide,” says Ben. “Spartacus suits me.”The Spartacus International Gay Guide 2016 is published by Bruno Gmünder and offers on 970 pages around 21,000 useful listings: from bars and hotels as well as saunas to trendy shops in over 135 countries. All the tips, where gay and bisexual men can feel at home on their travels were researched and updated.
