Sight Seeing
The best way to see all of the top attractions in Barcelona, is to take the Hop on Hop off Bus (Bus Turistic) from Plaza Catalunya in the center of Barcelona. It's 26€ for 1 day or 34€ for 2 consecutive days. There's 44 stops along the route. You can get off wherever you like, then hop on the next bus that comes along. There's 3 routes, your ticket covers them all. The North, South and Fórum route. Each stop is announced in English, and you'll find info about each one in the guide they give you. The entire tour of all 3 routes, if you don't stay at any location, lasts 5 hours.
Gay Scene
The first thing that is going to hit you when you arrive in Barcelona is the beautiful architecture all around you. Then as you start cruising around, the next thing that is going to knock you off your feet is that those amazing Gaudí creations you've seen so much of in photos are standing.......actually I'm not going to tell you where they stand because it will spoil the surprise, but you will be surprised where they are. You'll know what I'm babbling on about when you see for yourself.
Next you'll be pleasantly surprised at just how helpful and friendly the people are for a city of it's size. Whatever your preconceptions are of the Catalonians, they'll soon melt away as they do their best to make you welcome in their stunningly beautiful city.
The gay area is called L'Eixample or nick named GayEixample (pronounced gay-eye-sham-play) and is north-west of the center of town within walking distance but can also be reached by metro from either the Universitat or Urgell stations. If you get off at Urgell take the Villarroel exit. The gay scene is lively and there's plenty of variety. Everything you'd expect from a major city's gay scene but with the added bonus of bronzed Spanish boys all over the place.
To top it all off, you have Sitges just down the road which you must check out as well. It's an easy 35 minute train ride away from Sants train station, or better yet, from Passeig de Gracia station near the gay village.
