We're so glad you're here! Many of you wanted us to create a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about membership. So we created the Membership Resources microsite within our website. While here, you can scroll through different sections with all the most up to date information about your benefits and what we're doing to support tourism businesses and to help grow LGBTQ+ tourism across the globe.
Do you like this new site? Let us know, your feedback helps us improve!

EMERGING DESTINATION PROGRAM
This membership incentive program is designed to assist small LGBTQ+-owned/ operated tourism businesses in emerging markets where the infrastructure for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender tourism is not yet established. Due to the lack of visibility for transgender-run businesses, this program is open to transgender-owned/operated businesses anywhere in the world.
