This is a commendable move. While great progress has been made in the U.S. and many other countries, there are unfortunately many places in the world where being openly gay is difficult, even dangerous. As an operator of escorted tours for LGBT travelers around the globe for 18 years we too are doing our part to act as ambassadors.
