LGTNetwork - Luxury Gay Travel Network
Bespoke Public Relations + Outreach + Communication + Networking
An international networking platform, connecting global mainstream luxury travel suppliers/services/products,
with our exclusive - by invitation/referral only - membership, gathering the leading LGBT Travel Professionals,
serving the affluent segment of luxury gay travel and beyond..
Our pillars, we promote and cherish, are: good fellowship, networking, communication, experience, education and trust.
Narrowing the existing gap among mainstream luxury travel, hospitality suppliers and the leading luxury gay travel professionals.
…” our native tongue might be Gay, but we are fluent in Straight, everyone is welcomed…”. Strong believers of diversity, standing far from outdated and obsolete practices, segmentations and approaches, targeting the niche and community we represent and are part off.
Building strong relationships, by networking with the key players. Opening proper channels of communication to tell your story. Creating awareness and educating. Positioning your brand within the leading international luxury gay travel trade.
We stand far from the mere concept of taking your company “Out of the Closet”. Long overdue and outdated are these classic gay cliches and stereotypes. We live today in a totally different world and reality, more so when reaching out to the affluent gay luxury segment.
Good fellowship, networking, communication, experience, education and trust.
