France's second-largest city, the Mediterranean coastal metropolis of Marseille, enjoyed a great honor in 2013 - this spicy port city and atmospheric capital of the Provence, Alpes, Cote d'Azur region is hosting the famed continental LGBT celebration, EuroPride 2013. In 2015, Marseille Gay Pride is slated to take place in early July.
Marseille will be quite the gay destination during EuroPride, with bars, restaurants, hotels, and shops in the area expected to be at full capacity with GLBT visitors. Check online resources about the Marseille gay scene, such as the Nighttours.com Marseille Gay Guide, and the Gay and Lesbian Marseille online guide at Marseille-Provence.info. Also take a look at the excellent travel site produced by the city's official tourism organization, the Marseille Office of Tourism.
