A Comprehensive Travel Guide for LGBTs

by Vegan Culinary Cruises Luxury – All Inclusive – All Vegan
The number of gay travelers is increasing year by year and the market is expected to expand greater by 2020. A study on LGBT Global tourism had suggested, “With the rise of parenting too, more and more lesbian and gay couples are expanding their ambitions to travel with their own children - just as their heterosexual counterparts have always done; they are eager to find welcoming, safe and culturally-fair minded destinations that treat their family respectfully and equally with others.” 

This points out to say that if you’re a member of the LGBT community, you are not the only person seeking to travel with like-minded people and a culturally deferential community. In addition to safe traveling, most members have considered getting on culturally relevant and healthy alternative trips like vegan LGBT cruises and LGBT-exclusive tours. However, if you are planning to travel somewhere that does not show an opportunity of exclusivity, you must reconsider these few safety tips to go along with your journey smoothly: 

Do your research
Read blogs, news and anything relevant to LGBT tourism. Seek out advice as much as possible. Use guides and articles like this to get in-depth information about the overall itinerary and the people that you will have to interact with. It is also helpful to search about local policies and current reports and laws that might not support your principles. 

Be mindful of local customs
In particular countries, there are local customs for both men and women. For instance, are the women suggested to wear headscarves and clothing with minimal skin exposure in religiously sensitive countries? It’s essential and important to blend in with traditions and ethics to lessen any unnecessary disturbance. 

Keep someone updated about your itinerary

If you have someone back home that you trust, it’s helpful to keep someone knowledgeable about your whereabouts or at least the contact information of the hotel or the place you will be staying in. 

Be aware of the local norms concerning PDA (public display of affection)
It’s easy to be defensive when amended by a local because of physical affection. However, some countries have laws concerning the subject that could lead to punishable action and imprisonment. Morocco and Russia, for instance, consider sharing beds at a hotel, kissing and holding hands are deemed as inappropriate public displays. 

Whether you are traveling as a couple, as a family or alone, it is essential to keep a heads up when to places, especially in culturally sensitive countries. Fortunately, the availability of inland and LGBT exclusive cruises are rising - and even the availability of healthy alternatives that have vegan cuisine involved.
