founder's logo

I am the co-founder of Hornet - a gay social network, and I am a frequent world traveller based in San Francisco. I noticed that my fellow gay travelers wanted an easy-to-use app that provides a well-curated directory of gays places all over the world. So the idea for Vespa was born. Vespa is the ultimate gay travel companion in the palm of your hands. With more than 5,000 curated locations across the world- covering 300 cities in over 70 countries- Vespa provides you with gay-friendly places wherever you are.

Vespa is bringing the following benefits to its traveling companions:

  • Search 5,000 LGBT-friendly locations, carefully curated by the Vespa team (not robots!)
  • Read trusted reviews, photos, and ratings from the Vespa community
  • Show destination addresses in local characters (e.g., Chinese, Russian) to your taxi driver
  • Stay up-to-date with Twitter feeds from your Vespa destination
  • Explore by using the map search function: set a location flag and discover hidden gay spots around you in a radius, or by other criteria (e.g., top rating, category, distance, etc.)
  • Receive promotional feeds (special event announcements, passes, etc) from your Vespa destinations
  • Finally, all information is stored on the device. If you leave your hotel Wifi and no longer have network connection, Vespa still works and will reliably guide you on the map to your destination

But most importantly, it is about our gay community. We want to invite you to be Vespa's own curators. Rate, review, add pictures to gay-friendly places. And if you connect Vespa with Facebook or Hornet, you can even chat up other users and start a conversation by asking for some place related advice. Or romantic sparks may fly?

Have fun, give us feedback, and be safe!

-Chris, founder of Vespa.
