What you'll do

We will begin our experience with a short walk, during which I will show several important places in the city for its residents, the peculiarity of which is their attitude to the LGBTQ community. While we are walking, I will tell about the situation with the rights of the LGBTQ community in our country, we will discuss the victories and failures in achieving equality and I will allow my guests to formulate their own conclusion based on all opinions.

After a walk, I will invite you to a magnificent place where an impressive cuisine coexists with the long tradition of hospitality. The authenticity of the dishes will allow my guests to discover new tastes, and a short pause - to relax before diving into the night.

We will begin in the largest bar quarter of the city, which has existed for 15 years and has about 40 bars and clubs. Among them, we will visit the largest gay club and, if desired, a cute gay bar nearby. Depending on the day of the week, the scale of the parties changes and they reach the greatest scope on the weekend.

Beautiful moments and a visit to the rooftop in the heart of the city will give you memorable sensations and good memories.

Please do this experience! If you are here reading this, you're thinking about it--you must do it! It was one of the best things I have ever done on a trip. Aleks is a wonderful person and was wonderful communicating. I had my own 1 to 1 experience on a Friday night and it was like a night out with a friend. This was on my first night in St. Petersburg and I was not yet comfortable navigating the city so Aleks met me at my hotel (and walked me home) which I appreciated because it made me feel more comfortable. With that said, I found that it was safe to walk at night, but I only came to learn this through this experience and with Aleks' expertise. I am so happy that I did this and learned about the LGBT+ community in Russia. It was not what I expected at all. Plus, the rooftop experience was amazing! So peaceful and beautiful, and unique. Thank you, Aleks!

Alexandr est super sympa. Nous avons échangé sur la situation "gay" en Russie. Nous avons fini la soirée dans un club très sympa.

Aleksandr instantly made me feel comfortable from the first hello. He asks questions about preferences and is able to customize the experience to suit the group. He is a pleasure to talk with and you will leave with a warm feeling from connecting with such a thoughtful local.

I wanted to learn more about the every day lives of people and, as an ally, I jumped at the chance to learn about LGBT experiences in Russia. This is experience is unique and recommended for everyone, whether you identify as LGBTQ or not. The rooftop was super cool! Aleksandr is a wonderful host and took good care of me. I had not eaten dinner so we got some food and talked before we went to the club.

Learned so much about the community in St.Petersburg, and its distinction from say Moscow or other European capitals. Saw the relationship to aspects of patriarchal society and its political structure. Aleks has sustained and varied engagement in the community; he is well-qualified to share insights about the community. Aleks is incredibly genuine and at the same time professional with seemingly sensitive topics. I would consider the experience strictly cultural and casual entertainment. It is suitable for anyone interested in exploring another viewpoint of St.Petersburg. Had a lot of fun as we ended the trip at a local nightclub (completely optional).
