What is it like to be a gay (male) foreigner in Romania?

        Is it safe to be open? My impression is that it’s not. Is there much gay culture in places like Bucharest or Cluj?

        I can give you my intuition only: in the cool bars and clubs from the big cities (Bucharest, Cluj etc.) where the people inside look civilized (=like westerners, you’ll recognize it), it is absolutely fine to be open (hold hands, kiss etc.), as far as I saw it many times. There are also some gay-friendly bars. Spot them :-).

        Otherwise, I’m really sorry, I wouldn’t go open, people can be quite primitive about that. I don’t think you’ll be physically aggressed, but it won’t be a smooth experience either, my conjecture.
