DELHI / NEW DELHI (National Capital Territory) -- area code +91-11

General Information

    Delhi, officially National Capital Territory of Delhi (NCT) - incorporating fascinating Old Delhi and India's capital, New Delhi - is a vast, well-organized metropolis dotted with lush public parks, exotic Mughal Empire architecture, grand British-colonial showpieces, monumental government structures, shrines large and small to a baffling number of spiritual practices, side-by-side tracts of glittering mega-malls, and a magic carpet of organic urban sprawl woven together over hundreds of years. Rich in history, culture, cuisine, commodities, ethnicities, superstitions, and opinions, Dehli is the proverbial melting pot where a little bit of every part of the subcontinent and its neighbors has been blended into modern India.

    Appealing and relatively easy to get around (except during rush hours), Delhi is also super safe, thanks to teams of ever-vigilant security that look to have been hand-picked from the handsomest of the country's already studly armed services. If you're a fan of hunky, flirty, mustachioed men in uniform, packing (in more than one way), then Delhi's got that added bonus!

Old Dehli (c) 2012 by John Goss
    India's emerging gay scene, while largely still in the shadows, is most active and visible in Delhi. Multiple gay-themed events happen regularly, rotating between various friendly venues and announced by SMS and email rather than promoted publicly. New venues and projects-in-planning are popping up with increasing regularity. Expect much of country's expanding gay and GLBT-friendly business community to be based here.

    The population of Delhi is over 33 million people (that's 1.3 million Utopians).

    • Peppers UTOPIA VERIFIED AUG 2013
        Chanakya Lane at the Grand Forte (near the site of the now demolished Chanakya Cinema, towards the end of the road), Chanakyapuri, Utopia Map

        A long-running venue to meet people from the gay community. Small disco on two levels with a gay party every Tues night. G/F with bar stools is noisy, but good for people who like to dance and hook up. Upper level with sofas is better to socialize. Fun, nice people, lots of couples, easy to chat. Gets packed after 11pm. Most of the patrons are locals, with some expatriates mingling in.

Meeting Places

    • Daula Khuan Park UTOPIAN VERIFIED OCT 2013

    • Jheel Park UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2012
        Dhaula Kuan Metro Station (exit and walk east to the bus stop), Utopia Map

        The park, in the vicinity of the Dhaula Kuan bus stop, is super active in the afternoons (it is not safe at night) with hundreds of men of all ages who, waiting for their bus connections (sometimes for hours), wander around the park looking for connections (which happen almost instantly as you enter the park). The term MSM was seemingly coined to describe this scene.
