I’M BORJA THE GAY EXPLORER
AND WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE
A few months ago, I decided to quit my job, my home in Barcelona, and pursue my passion for travelling and storytelling. So, I became a travel blogger! And there’s no better way to focus on my passions than by going on a trip around the world, exploring new cities, cultures and people’s lives.
Hi, I'm Borja, a gay travel blogger and YouTuber from Barcelona and as you may know, I love to explore! My passion for travel started at a very early age and I decided to make that passion my job by studying and working in the hospitality industry.
But what’s so special about traveling? For me, travel is not only the destination but also the people. Through travel I saw the beauty of cross-cultural relationships and seeing the world through their perspective. The stories I’ve heard from the people I’ve met is what motivated me to do something to empower and inspire the LGTBQ+ community.
In 2017, after a few years working in hospitality and specializing in digital marketing, I decided that it was time for a change and to make my dream of doing a trip around the world come true. I also wanted to give a purpose to this passion and that’s when I embarked on the journey of The Gay Explorer.
The Gay Explorer is a self-funded travel and LGBTQ+ documentary series. The content focuses on exploring destinations and raising awareness of issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community featuring unique individuals and their breakthrough stories. Our values are to inspire, empower and entertain.
The documentary has been broken down into seven captivating episodes. They are all filmed in different locations and deal with topics such as online dating, coming out in the 80’s and living in a country where homosexual acts are still illegal. The premiere takes place on May 31st 2018 with a weekly episode being released each week on YouTube.

But there’s more! During my gay travels, I’ll be going on a gay date in each city. Yes, a real date where he’ll take me to his favorite spots, introduce me to local food, and maybe become that special someone we’re all looking for.
We will also explore what it’s like being gay in their city to raise awareness of the struggles that we, the LGBTQ+ community, are still facing as a collective and at a personal level.
To do so, I’ll put my dates in the spotlight and ask them to share their thoughts and experiences. Enough chitchatting, relax, get comfortable and click play!
