Vatican City Italy

St Peter’s Square, Vatican City, Rome

The Roman Catholic Church and homosexuality. It’s a tricky one, isn’t it? While some of the teachings of Catholicism say that our desires for the same sex are sinful and, well, evil; Pope Francis is perhaps the most forward-thinking and accepting of us to hold the papacy, continuously restating that every L, G, B and indeed T person should be treated with respect and love.

With that in mind, there’s probably been no better time for a gay guy to explore the wonders and splendour of Vatican City. Regardless of your faith, beliefs or opinions on there being a Higher Power other than Madge, one of the most inspiring things to be born from Christianity is the art. St Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums hold some of the world’s most famous paintings and sculptures. But the jewel in the city’s crown is, of course, The Last Judgement by Michaelangelo, which adorns the interior of the Sistine Chapel, alongside other breathtaking and equally-noteworthy frescos.
