LGBTQ Travel

“Gay travel” has long since evolved from the circuit party scene, so while you may still be able to find a story on the annual Atlantis cruise here, you’ll just as likely read about the politics, cultural details, and ground level experiences that contribute to the journeys of LGBT travelers.

We know that some world regions and cultures are more accepting of LGBT travelers than others and that there may be potential safety and comfort concerns. These articles are collected to help you make informed travel decisions and to highlight the events, destinations, and activities — and the diverse experiences — that make up “gay travel.”
