We are thrilled to announce that we’ve officially launched IGLTA Accredited™ on the global stage! This ground-breaking new program will serve as the gold standard of assurance for travel brands committed to promoting equality and safety for LGBTQ+ travelers.
What is the IGLTA Accredited™? IGLTA Accredited™ is an accreditation program that recognizes hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs and any other individual properties offering accommodation that are committed to providing inclusive experiences to LGBTQ+ travelers.
On 22 June we celebrated the IGLTA Accredited™ Global Launch with an amazing panel and audience.
