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.

IGLTA Foundation LGBTQ+ Travel Symposium in India

With the generous support of Visit West Hollywood, members of the IGLTA team and thought leaders from the IGLTA network will unite with Indian tourism businesses to discuss the high potential of LGBTQ+ tourism to and from India.

This free event is an opportunity for Indian travel businesses to connect, network, and attend educational sessions in the welcoming environment of the beautiful Lalit New Delhi.

The day will conclude with complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres paired with spectacular city views in the Pan Asian OKO restaurant on the hotel's 28th floor!
