Gay Travel Croatia team “I started the Gay Travel Croatia page, and the idea was born three years ago when, in a conversation with my gay friends, I realized that they don’t know where to go when they visit one of our cities. “We have money, and we don’t know where to spend it because we don’t know where we are welcome,” that’s what it sounded like. I was bothered by this part where they don’t know where they are welcome because I believe the vast majority of us went through that phase a long time ago”, Says Iva Piglić Lazić, from Rijeka who has several reasons to launch this website. “It is precisely the gay population that is my personal and scientific interest. Personal because I have friends who are gay and I know their problems within the family, at work, and in society. I want to free them from that stigma, that stomach cramp, that hiding and fear of what they are. I don’t think it’s fair to make a difference. My scientific interest in this direction goes to the Department of Cultural Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana, where I deal with this topic”, Said Piglić Lazić.

Iva Piglić Lazić is a woman who launched a website intended for the gay population, and her goal is to open the doors of Croatia to them in the best possible way. Iva Piglić Lazić Croatia as a tourist country should be open to everyone, including the diverse. Despite the fact that we often witness inappropriate events towards others, Croatia is a part of European nations and a tourist destination and as such it is increasingly open to people of homosexual orientation. The users are foreign tourists who come to Croatia, but the portal is also intended for our tourists who want to get information that are gay friendly places in Croatia – gay friendly accommodation, clubs, beaches, beauty salons and the like. In Croatia, too, things are changing rapidly. Many agencies provide “tailor-made trips”, which would mean that agencies make trips according to individual wishes. “Croatia is not bad in terms of services, nor are Croats generally homophobic. Croatia is ready for such a portal, for such an idea, and I can use these services myself, why not? I like to be in the company of different people and grow on my own. There is so much a man can learn”, Explains Iva Piglić Lazić, who launched a project that could bring Croatia a lot more money than tourism. “I think most business people are aware of how big the annual revenue from gay tourism is, and it revolves around a staggering $ 150 billion! Over 300 thousand gay tourists come to Croatia every year, and these are guests of higher paying power, they are not burdened with loans, they mostly do not have children, so they come to Croatia all year round because they do not follow the school holidays. And they are mostly big gourmands who like to dance and have fun”, Said Iva, who also reveals one interesting piece of information when asked if this portal is intended only for boys or also for girls. The whole story was started from Rijeka, Iva gathered her team and once again showed that Rijeka is a port of diversity, cultural, multidimensional and liberal. One such agency is in Rijeka, through which 80 percent of American tourists come, who have special wishes, which includes renting yachts, helicopters, strictly defined car brands, private concerts and the like. They had a lot of inquiries for gay couples, but they had no one to turn to. “It is primarily intended for men. Research has shown that this is a homosocial situation, that is: a male space, such as watching matches from the stands in a male company or playing poker. Gay men love their space just as much as heterosexual men, and the Center for Women’s Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy in Rijeka, with which we also cooperate, confirmed that this is the case. I emphasize this scientific background because I do not want any piece of this project to be trivialized: a lot of people are involved in the background and this story is not the story of one man, me, but this is a common story of people who are aware”, Says the author of the project, who is currently positioned on social networks and continues to invite tourism workers to contact her via the site or social networks to make the offer from Croatia even better and more complete.

“I haven’t spoken with coaches about anything,” he said, “but I’m just doing the same thing. Working hard, staying ready and I hope my time will come.”Staying engaged has been a challenge for Zubac, who is biding his time working on his perimeter game and pick-and-roll defense, while appearing in eight G-League games.“I think I really improved in those games,” Zubac said. “It’s harder when you’re not playing in the NBA but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”BIG PAIROnce the Lakers acquired Lopez in June, he and Randle became the presumptive starting frontcourt. After all, Randle had started 73 of the 74 games he appeared in last year.It took nearly half of the season, but after Walton tried no fewer than four other center-power forward combinations, Lopez and Randle found their way into the starting lineup together. Tuesday against Sacramento marked the third straight game the two were paired together.Walton said it was too early to evaluate the pairing, which he turned to after starting the season with Larry Nance Jr. alongside Lopez, tried Kyle Kuzma in place of Lopez and later Kuzma alongside Bogut.The key to Randle’s success with the starters, Walton said, might have more to do with Lonzo Ball than Lopez.“The way Julius has really developed and blossomed this year gets brought out with playing with Zo,” Walton said, “and the way he can run the floor and play the pick-and-roll game. But as of now we’re happy with (the lineup), we’ll go with it again tonight and we’ll continue to evaluate that as we get more games with that group.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersHe acknowledged earlier this week that he anticipated having a larger role.“I did,” he said, “but some things change and I can’t control everything. The only thing I can do is work hard and hope that they’re going to call my name.”A second-round pick two summers ago, Zubac averaged 7.5 points and 4.2 rebounds in 38 games as a rookie, including 11 starts.Zubac is still waiting for an opportunity to carve out a role for himself, even after the Lakers waived Bogut earlier this week and Randle was moved into the starting lineup next to Lopez.While the Croatian-speaking Bogut was personally a tremendous asset to Zubac, his departure could eventually clear a path to the court for the second-year center. LOS ANGELES — Ivica Zubac was not alone in believing an even bigger role awaited him in his second season with the Lakers.“Zu was going into the summer as our starting center,” Coach Luke Walton said last month, while the Croatian big man was playing with the South Bay Lakers. “Which is tough, but that’s the NBA.”Instead of a consistent role, Zubac has appeared in just 11 NBA games, with a season high of 12 minutes.Related Articles The Lakers’ offseason acquisitions of veteran centers Brook Lopez and Andrew Bogut pushed Zubac down the depth chart, and the emergence of Julius Randle as a viable backup center nudged him out of the rotation entirely.
