Travel Safety for LGBTQ Travelers

Everyone deserves to feel safe when they travel. Everyone. While I hope that everywhere we go is equally tolerant to all tourists, that isn't always the case. There are places I won't go - or won't go alone - as a woman and I know I'm not the only one. Here are some tips on how to travel safely as a queer traveler:

Everyone deserves to feel safe when they travel. Here are some tips on how to travel safely as a queer traveler.
For more places to go, check out Thrillist's collection of LGBTQ destination articles. Matador Network wants you to travel well in Eastern Europe. Maybe you don't want to go that far and the Caribbean is calling.  Learn why Global Entry might be your best investment for traveling as a trans or non-binary traveler. Learn more about your rights before you get to the airport. Find queer-owned businesses with the app Everywhere Is Queer. You can also use it on your desktop to plan your trips without the app. If you are an outdoorsy person and want to get outside, because outside is for everyone, check out Outdoorist Oath, a group looking to make outdoor adventure (and helping our planet) inclusive and awesome for all people. And, last but not least, a list of resources to use before and during your travels.

If you aren't a queer traveler, you can still be an ally when you travel. Support queer businesses and other travelers where you can and provide them a safe person to be around. There's even a webinar from Skyscanner to help you travel with Pride and be a good ally.

Now you can plan your trip, make new connections, find inclusive businesses and make awesome memories. Do you have a favorite LGBTQ-friendly city?
