Authentic LGBTQ Destination Development

By Greg DeShields

Are you ready for LGBTQ travelers?

More than ever, a destination’s authenticity is crucial, and this quality is more about how visitors feel than what they can define.

Authenticity can be expressed through curating engaging and meaningful experiences as accurately as possible. It is more than the manufactured ways that contribute to experiencing a new place to the fullest; instead, experiences should be curated by natural associations — a genuine, local and authentic connection.
