For example, the amount that travelers are willing to spend on in-destination tours and activities is projected to be worth $266.7 billion by 2027, according to Research and Markets.

In fact, one could argue that Hanns Ebensten, also known as the father of gay travel, set the wheels in motion with He Travel and its first gay-only tour of the Grand Canyon in 1973. Given that June marks Pride Month—a time to celebrate LGBTQ achievements but also to create awareness of the issues and struggles that persist in societies around the world—we felt compelled to reach out to hoteliers of the LGBTQ community to hear their insights into this segment of the industry that’s grown and…
