Global initiative offers exclusive LGBT benefits


The latest research results from the LGBT2020 Study have shown that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities are travelling large and spending up big, causing a significant surge in the growth of global tourism.

Gay and Lesbian Tourism Australia (GALTA) has announced a joint initiative with Out Now, the organisation behind the world's leading global LGBT tourism network, to forge an alliance with Out Now Business Class (ONBC), a trade networking association with over 900 industry members and 1,400 hotel members globally.

The partnership will offer GALTA members complimentary 12 month memberships with ONBC, including unlimited inline staff training as well as allow them to connect with key industry decision makers who share the same global interest in developing LGBT tourism.

“Our members are at the forefront of LGBT tourism development in our region and it is clear to all that travel is a global concern and adding access to a global network and the industry-leading international resources delivered by ONBC and makes a lot of sense to our organisation – and most importantly for our members,” GALTA president Rod Stringer said.
