39 Leading LGBTQ+, inclusive and accepting winners selected from hundreds of finalists.
GayTravel Founder Steve Rohrlick said: “Once again, this year has been a challenging one for travelers. With the pandemic ebbing and flowing across the globe and the uncertainty related to the latest variants, many are restricted from traveling or waiting for a safer time. The Gay Travel Awards affords us all a moment to focus on the industry’s best as a prologue to getting back out there.”
The Gay Travel Awards support and promote LGBTQ+ travel and tourism by identifying and rewarding select destinations, properties, events, influencers, and other organizations that exemplify a spirit of inclusiveness and hospitality excellence. These distinguished winners lead by example and inspire other inclusive companies and brands.
Every year, especially now, The Gay Travel Awards offer something to look forward to while inspiring future travel. The Gay Travel Awards are akin to The Oscars® for LGBTQ+ travelers.
Returning for its junior year, “The Gay Travel Influencers” categories consist of creators (couples and solo travelers) who inspire travel with their inclusive spirit, a drive for diversity, and a desire to change the world for the better.
