Journalist Dan Allen lifts the cover from the gay scene in Estonia. He wanders down the national memory lane and across traditional islands to find the remnants of history, both intriguing and graceful at once. Not only does he fall in love with the Baltics, but also becomes fascinated with the contrasting identities of the three Baltic states.
Dan starts his journey of the Baltics in Tallinn, what he refers to as the most gay-friendly city in the Baltics - "Estonia is the most overtly gay welcoming of the three Baltic countries, having even passed (though not yet fully implemented) a civil partnership law." While Tallinn's gay scene is still pretty small-scale, Dan points out two mainstream LGBT hotspots attracting crowds in Tallinn - X-Baar and a sauna Club 69.
