IGLTA Foundation India Initiative

The IGLTA Foundation, supporting IGLTA and its global members in tourism, is expanding its support of strategic emerging destinations as LGBTQ+ leaders in tourism. The foundation will set up various task forces to develop and implement the action plan. India is a major destination for international tourism and there is potential to grow the inbound and outbound network to benefit LGBTQ+ travelers and LGBTQ+ welcoming businesses.

The IGLTA Foundation will grow IGLTA's membership of LGBTQ+ owned businesses in India as well as non LGBTQ+ businesses who ally to become more LGBTQ+ inclusive and attract pink dollars to India while supporting and learning the unique needs of LGBTQ+ travelers.

Our reach and resources there are minimal and therefore we are setting a goal of establishing relationships to grow our business membership to further the visibility and business to India, as well as supporting outbound-India travel advisors with LGBTQ+ supplier options worldwide.

India Initiative Task Force

The IGLTA Foundation is building a task force of tourism operators in India and leaders in India interested in promoting and expanding the LGBTQ+ offerings there. We are seeking leaders, and nominations, in the LGBTQ+ community in India (or connected Indians currently living outside of India) who are interested in serving on this task force.



We're delighted to announce the IGLTA Foundation's Annual LGBTQ+ Travel Symposium, set for February 27, 2025, in Delhi, India. This year, we anticipate an even larger gathering of leaders from diverse tourism and travel sectors, building on the success of the previous edition that attracted over 100 participants.

The symposium serves as a vital platform for meaningful discussions, insights, and experiences within LGBTQ+ travel. It's a humble and inclusive event dedicated to advancing the LGBTQ+ travel sector. Join us in making a difference at this annual gathering.
