Gay Traveler's insight:

A very basic intro to gay Seattle... but it's a great example of an effective marketing tool (this time for a gay travel agency) that is relatively cheap and easy to produce.

Same-Sex Destination Weddings Take Off as Growth Market

Same-Sex Destination Weddings Take Off as Growth Market | Gay Travel | Scoop.it
More and more states are legalizing marriage for gays and lesbians, making same-sex destination weddings a growth niche product for agents. The market holds potential for those who take the time to understand the nuances and challenges.
Gay Traveler's insight:

An overly optimistic view of the wedding market. The US market may be different, but the same sex wedding boom fizzled in Canada quite quickly.

TRAVEL GUIDE: Valencia

TRAVEL GUIDE: Valencia | Gay Travel | Scoop.it

The sun poured down upon me as I stepped off the jet for my 36 hours non-stop whirlwind tour of Valencia. Now this is the kind of article I like to write. Sun, sea and Spain. I was in Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, for the launch of Ford’s brand new Kuga, but why not kill two birds with one stone, look at the car and marvel at its wondrousness and secondly get some quality time in Spain and write about one of the most gay friendly cities in Spain.

Gay Traveler's insight:

I like these kind of first hand accounts of destinations.

Finding Gay-Friendly Tour Operators and Places
New York Times
As more countries propose legislation to legalize same-sex marriage, destinations and travel companies are increasingly marketing themselves to gay travelers.
Gay Traveler's insight:

Primarily just a promo piece about the IGLTA, timed to coincide with the annual conference that is about to start in Chicago. Not much meat here, plus a very conservative/cautious perspective on traveling to less friendly destinations.

What is Gay Travel?

What is Gay Travel? | Gay Travel | Scoop.it
What is GAY TRAVEL?  What is a  GAY  HOTEL?   I attended a meeting last week in Chicago, where the OUT NYC  gay resort hotel presented to community, a proposal to open their 2nd  gay property, right in the heart of Chicago's gay Boystown.  
Gay Traveler's insight:

A fairly limp argument for why gay travel still matters in an era of greater acceptance. It's clearly written from the point of view of a privileged North American. Try telling this to a gay man or lesbian in Uganda...
