I may be biased for wanting to add Lisbon to this list as I’ve lived here for the past year and a half. However, after doing some research, I quickly discovered that Portugal has some of the best LGBTQ+ laws to protect our community’s human rights in the EU. Same-sex marriage and adoption has been legal for 11 years now, and the government outlawed discrimination based on sexual orientation 17 years ago. Add some of the most dazzling beaches in Europe, drag shows that will leave you wanting more, and a nightlife scene that just doesn’t quit—a visit is a must! My wife and I have made this welcoming city our base and our love not only feels accepted but celebrated here.

Lisbon’s coworking community is on the up and up, and with good reason. It’s pretty hard to disagree with 300 days of sunshine per year, fabulous eateries, and killer nightlife. Community meet ups are common, making it easy to find your niche in the growing tech scene. It’s trendy and exciting, yet simultaneously laidback. Even if you’re not working over an espresso, you’ll probably end up hanging out at one of the enticing coffee shops regardless. Cost of living: $1,970 USD per month WiFi: 21 mbps
