Now in their 6th year, The Gay Travel Awards are considered the equivalent of “The Oscar’s®” for LGBTQ+ travel and are globally recognized as THE travel-related awards for the community. They were created to recognize select properties, destinations, tours, and events for both their spirit of inclusiveness and diversity as well as for their exemplary customer service and hospitality excellence.

The GayTravel Awards also serve to inspire companies and brands around the world to continually raise their safety and service levels and amenities while encouraging a broad spirit of inclusiveness.

Public voting is officially open on the Gay Travel Awards website and will remain open through December 26, 2021.
