6. Be Wary of Overly Friendly Strangers
Unsavoury characters will occasionally try to take advantage of the generally free and open nature of the gay community. Never accept drinks from strangers and keep your drink with you at all times. Never accompany a stranger back to their home or hotel, and stick to crowded, well lit areas. If you do, bring a guest back to your hotel room, stay alert and store all your valuables in the hotel safe.
