|About||Finland and above all Helsinki area is safe and liberal these days. We try to create a phenomenon website that is source of inspiration for every open-minded, big-hearted people, who is interested in Finland.|
We are Hannu and Raúl, we are bloggers and married gay couple behind Gay Travel Finland and @lifeof2men.
We met two years ago in Instagram. Raul was then visiting his family in Mexico with the idea to move to Vancouver in Canada after having lived 15 years in USA. I (Hannu) had been out as gay for only one year after 25 years of marriage. I was having a sabbathical year and travelling around the world.
We had a good connection from the very beginning. We chatted ever day and after a few months I travelled to Mexico to meet Raul. We spent three amazing weeks together and decided in the end of my stay that Raul will move Finland and will get married. We became the first gay couple to get married in Finland on the first of March 2017.
We started our blog lifeof2men in social media channels when Raul moved to Finland. Our wish is to inspire people by sharing our lives to all open minded people around the world. For me as a "baby gay" this was all new. Through our blog we also found out that things are not as good for LGBT people in every country as they are in Finland. On the other hand we realised that Finland as a destination country could do so much better in communicating about the gay friendly and respectful atmosphere in this Nordic country, especially in its capital Helsinki.
In stead of waiting for somebody else to do something we decided to take actions and created Gay Travel Finland. The site will be opened during the MATKA TRAVEL FAIR on January 18th. We will tell travellers about Finland, make promotion for gay friendly brands, services and destinations in Finland. We are so excited, happy and proud to be able to work with this project.
We hope you will enjoy time together with us in different parts and different places in Finland. We wanna be real and authentic. We wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018 together with Gay Travel Finland and lifeof2men.
Hannu and Raúl
