There are no gay organizations or groups, but at the same time no evident discrimination of homosexuals. The largest of the around 115 islands is Tahiti. The capital city Papéete has around 30.000 inhabitants. The Tahitians are polite and open minded and positive towards foreigners, who wish to discover the beauty of the islands.
