In May 2020, IGLTA surveyed members of the LGBTQ+ community to gauge their attitudes toward leisure travel in the face of the COVID-19 health crisis. Now one year into the pandemic, IGLTA conducted a second travel survey with the support of the IGLTA Foundation to see how LGBTQ+ travelers are feeling now. 

Responses from the 2021 survey came from approximately 6,000 LGBTQ+ travelers around the world, with the largest representation from the United States, Europe, Brazil, Mexico, and India. The information will be used to support LGBTQ+ travelers as the tourism industry begins its recovery from COVID-19.
