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.

Travel near or far, we should all take travel precautions and being an LGBTQ+ person, there are special hurdles to scale at times, so here are some essential tips to plan for a hassle-free vacation. First, do your homework. Whether visiting a place that marginalizes the LGBTQ+ community or not, your decision should be an informed one. The State Department’s LGBT Travel page is a good starting point, but you can also check out gay travel information on GayCities, TravelGay and Out Traveler. Next, depending on where you’re traveling always know your rights. Be sure to observe local laws and customs and if you’re married to your partner, you may want to bring legal proof of your relationship status. Next is to know which chains and locations cater to your travel and lodging needs – brands like the Marriott, Hilton and Preferred Hotels have locations aimed at gay visitors and EBAB and misterb&b focus on LGBTQ+ accomodations. Last but not least, be sure to know where to get help if you’re traveling. If you are threatened or victimized in any way, don’t hesitate to contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate – especially if you dont believe it’s safe going to the local authorities. I know it’s a heavy topic, but knowledge is power! Share your gay travel tips with us by using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.
