Huge potential for the travel industry: 2nd UNWTO LGBT Report examines outlook for gay and lesbian travel


In conjunction with the leading International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) and following its first report in 2012, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has published a second report on the role of the increasingly important LGBT travel market. As the World’s Largest Travel Trade Fair and as part of its strategy to promote social responsibility, ITB Berlin is committed to firmly establishing the LGBT segment while also dispelling preconceptions. According to the report, in recent years the LGBT travel market has experienced a general upturn. Nevertheless, in some 70 countries around the world the legal situation of gays and lesbians remains very precarious, and a lot still needs to be done in terms of education.

LGBT Group Explores El Calafate and the Glaciers of Patagonia


Immediately after the GNetwork360 10th Annual LGBT Tourism & Business Conference in Buenos Aires, a group of LGBT media and conference participants headed down to the southern tip of Argentina, to the town of El Calafate. Staying at the lodge-like Alto Calafate Hotel, we took the shuttle into town for some local exploring and dining by night, and ventured into Los Glaciares National Park by day, once by boat on Lago Argentino (dinner cruise by MarpaTag Cruises) and another day by bus, where we were able to roam alongside the glacier as it calved icebergs large and small during our visit.

Canada 150 and Quebec Getaway – @asianmapleleaf

Canada 150 and Quebec Getaway – @asianmapleleaf


This year marks the 150th anniversary of Canada and we were fortunate enough to pass through Ottawa on July 1st to be part of the celebration. We arrived on the morning of Canada Day and the city was alive! There was a sea of people wearing red and white, eagerly waiting to kick off the festivities. I was traveling with a few of my friends, some of whom are Americans, and it was great to show off the Capital of Canada and for them to join in the celebration. Parliament Hill was packed so we decided to observe from the Gatineau side (in the Outaouais region of Quebec).
