LGBT Travel Specialist

     Perhaps you're considering an LGBTQ wedding or a destination wedding. Do you want to revel in the club scene in Amsterdam, Madrid or Berlin....or chill on a gay beach in Mykonos or Ibiza? Is Southern decadence, Amsterdam Pride, Dinah Shore Weekend Vegas, or a gay sailing adventure on your Bucket List? Are you psyched for some adventure...maybe cycling, hiking or white water rafting? Maybe it's all about a memorable getaway for just you and your partner? Do you enjoy group touring

You've come to the right place!

     As an LGBTQ travel specialist and member of our local Pride organization, I am actively involved in events and fund raising for LGBTQ related causes. Our agency is a proud member of IGLTA and supports efforts to provide unique and relevant travel experiences for the LGBT community.


As a Certified Active & Adventure Specialist let me recommend some great adventures!

If you're a skier, let me recommend a ski destination in the USA, Canada, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland (all of which I have skied multiple times with my groups). Consider joining one of my groups to Club Med in the French Alps each February! How about Arosa Gay Ski Week in Switzerland...the best gay and lesbian ski destination with beautiful mountains, parties and great accommodations?

Is a safari on your bucket list? Then let me recommend a visit to Capetown, South Africa for some amazing sightseeing and wine tasting in wine country, followed by a journey to Londolozi Game Reserve for a 4-day safari. Will you join my small groups to Amsterdam Pride every August for the unique and world famous Canal Parade? It's a week you won't forget!

Thailand, Spain, Costa Rica, Peru, Croatia, Greece, Netherlands, Italy...it's a big world out there!

I have organized, escorted, and hosted numerous groups and individuals to LGBTQ destinations and events worldwide. I regularly organize special tours and have attended several FAM (familiarization) trips and special LGBTQ events in Las Vegas. Travelers from London, Mexico City, Canada, and around the USA have sought my expertise in helping them plan safe and exciting travel itineraries which address their lifestyle. My active LGBTQ Twitter account has over 2500 followers and is focused on sharing some of the best trips and travel tips as well as LGBTQ community news.
