According to the Universidad Latina de América (UNLA), LGBTQ+ tourism is a new trend in travel.

It is a sector that is continuously growing and even contributes more to the economy than conventional tourism.

Travelers want to feel safe while they’re on vacation. In other words, they are looking for destinations where there is little to no discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community.

We have five LGBTQ-friendly vacation destinations from Madrid to San Francisco.
