The Gay Travel Awards support and promote LGBT+ travel and tourism by identifying and rewarding select destinations, properties, events, and travel-related organizations that exemplify a spirit of inclusiveness and acceptance, and provide exemplary customer service and hospitality excellence. These distinguished organizations lead by example and help to inspire and challenge other companies and brands to follow their spirit of inclusiveness as well, as to constantly improve their amenities and service levels.
Nominations are chosen based on recommendations from our audience, both on GayTravel.com and GayTravelAwards.com.
Voting takes place on the GayTravelAwards.com website. Voting opening, rules, and prizes will be announced through our Newsletter, as well as on our Social Media Channels.
Now in its fifth year, the Gay Travel Awards mission is to recognize and promote select accommodations, destinations, and transportation companies around the globe. These distinguished organizations lead by example and help inspire other companies and brands to follow their spirit of diversity and inclusiveness and to continuously improve their amenities, safety protocols, and service excellence.
This year, Gay Travel Influencers have been added for the first time, too, and the new category is an important and noteworthy enhancement.
GayTravel Chief Visionary Officer Steve Rohrlick said: “This year has been like no other. With the pandemic raging across the globe, many travelers are restricted from traveling or are waiting for a safer time to do so. In the meantime, The Gay Travel Awards give us all a moment to focus on the industry’s best as a prologue to a time when it’s safer to get back out there.”
The Gay Travel Awards winners will be announced sometime following the end of the voting period.
The Award Winners are decided through a proprietary algorithm designed to weigh criteria consistent with the Awards mission, primarily surrounding the acceptance and inclusiveness of LGBT+ travelers, as well as service levels, amenities, and overall guest experience.
