My partner and I visited Barbados and made friends with a gay couple who openly live together on the island. It would seem that although the law has not been changed regarding particularly male homosexual activitiy, it is not enforced. There is a gay community and my partner and I had no issues booking into a hotel where we shared a bed. The Leader of the current Opposition Party in Paliament also supports equal treatment for all including gay people. The island also seems to welcome LGBT tourists.

However, it is a social conservative with Protestant Christian values, which means that only openly affectionate or sexual acts in public, whether straight (and certainly not gay) are frowned upon.

So as a gay tourist, provided you are not demonstrative in public, you should have a great holiday.
