There’s also an online calendar of tours and parties; and, in the months to come, members will add information about special discounts.
Born with a little more than 20 members in 1983, IGLTA quickly grew into the premiere chamber of commerce for the gay-travel industry.. It currently hosts members in almost 90 countries, thanks to their expertise in gay-friendly accommodations, services and events. “For 30 years we’ve successfully connected LGBT tourism businesses around the world,” says GLTA President John Tanzella, and now we’ve created a dynamic website to easily connect LGBT travelers with these gay-welcoming businesses.”
