Gay Delhi Delhi City Guide City Guides > India > Gay Delhi Delhi Suzi SiegelDelhi stuns and Delhi shatters. And then it puts you back together again. The city is an assault on the senses, but does that have to be a bad thing? If you’re feeling like it’s time to take a trip that takes you out of your comfort zone, India’s tumultuous and wondrous capital city might be just what the doctor ordered. For every fetid smell, there will be a beautiful one. For every blast of heat and cacophonous racket, there will be a moment of peace and wonder. Despite its headlong rush into the future, this ancient land remains family-centric and deeply conservative. As far as the gay scene goes, it can perhaps best be described as “budding.” Antiquated colonial-era anti-sodomy laws remain on the dusty books, but still, the community continues to grow, with annual gay pride parades, straight clubs that hold gay nights and a healthy underground scene mostly tapped into by social networks. Looking for the ultimate Delhi gay guide? Mr Hudson has got you covered. Feel like getting away? Take a trip planned just for you, and let us do all the work.

The Leela Palace is simply put, perfect. Whereas other top-tier hotels overdo the whole “Raj era” thing to the point of kitsch, the Leela has mastered Indian grandeur with a light touch. The technology and service are impeccable, as is the location. (Insider tip: Book a Club floor and enjoy free cocktails, evening snacks and high teas. The extra cost pays for itself.)
