I am open to all my friends but not yet to my family. I plan to tell them very soon in fact, but I think my older sister knows because she once said to me: It was quite hard when I was younger because traditional Catholic Vietnamese society was not always so open and supportive towards gays. But on the positive, a lot has since changed, which has made it easier for gay boys growing up in modern Vietnamese society.
The growth of social media apps like Grindr etc have made it a lot easier for gays to connect with each other.

And, seeing more successful LGBT persons in the media helps society see gayness as something normal as oppose to an illness or wrong. I was quite shy and nervous about meeting other guys when I was younger. We have a drag show at Republic on Fridays and a large dance party with live music on Saturdays.
The Reverie Saigon , is in my opinion the most beautiful hotel in Saigon and very popular with gay couples. Unlike on Airbnb, you know your host is gay, avoiding any nasty surprises when you check in. It is also a great way to meet gay locals and discover the underground gay scene. Beautiful Saigon Boutique Hotel is a more affordable gay friendly option, also in District 1. Sadly for me, they ate all my food, took some pictures, then just abandoned me, hahahaha….
