880 - ENCORE-Keep Your Pride All Year Round

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

As we reach the final day of Pride month, it’s important to remember that our colorful celebrations and crucial battles for equality don’t stop here! Having heard from powerful thought leaders in our community and revisiting five decades of LGBTQ+ history, I realize that there is plenty to be thankful for. But working toward a more accepting and inclusive world for both the LGBTQ+ community and other minority groups demands consistency, hard work and compassion – especially now more than ever. Remember, the gay rights movement started with many people of color, including Marsha P. Johnson, who showed resilience and strength against adversity and continues to serve as the foundation for our community’s accomplishments. In these current times of repeated racial injustice and violence, it’s important for us to band together and support eachother not just this month but every month throughout the year. Let’s continue to appreciate all that makes us beautiful and different, which albeit, is what makes travel so special. How are you spending the last day of Pride month?
