Gay & Lesbian Travellers

The Gambia is not the place to be out. Open displays of affection can in fact place you in serious danger. Travellers have been arrested in the past for 'propositioning' locals (which included something as harmless as asking where other gay men hang out).

That said, the vast majority of gay travellers who visit The Gambia have no problems. As long as you exercise the utmost caution, there is little to worry about.
