• Gay Travel Information was created by Out & About Travel's founder, Desiree Sousa in November 2010.

    A pioneer of the online gay & lesbian travel industry, Desiree was looking for a creative way she and her colleagues could share honest, respectful opinions of the many businesses and events they frequent.

    What sets Gay Travel Information apart is that we don't just focus on "the usual" LGBT owned bars, cafes and inns and we don't just focus on businesses that list themselves as "LGBT friendly" because of an affixed rainbow sticker on the front of a window or flying rainbow flag outside their business.

    Gay Travel Information spotlights the HIPPEST and HOTTEST spots that offer the best experience for EVERYONE in a warm, welcoming environment.

    After all, most places these days will label themselves as LGBT friendly. We only spotlight businesses that offer a truly great product. Something we are proud to give our "stamp of approval" to based on factors such as ambiance, service, crowd and quality of product.

    Do you have a LGBT owned or friendly business / product you would like spotlighted? Email us at info@gaytravelinformation.com for more information.
