Gay Family Travel Alternatives

Taking our families to meet their families...


Canadian based OUT Adventures today announced 8 new Family trips which are dedicated to LGBT parents with children above the age of 6. Trips will operate in Thailand, Vietnam, India, China, South Africa, Spain and Italy with a maximum of 14 passengers per departure.

“We recognized that LGBT parents are very interested in introducing their children to new cultures around the world,” says Co-Founder Robert Sharp. Robert’s partner and Co-Founder Steven Larkin adds “As well, we really wanted to offer gay and lesbian parents affordable travel options outside of traditional resort or cruise packages.”

Trips are tailored to meet the needs of families with children and all trips will have a strong focus on responsible travel by using locally owned hotels, restaurants and also interaction with local communities, both LGBT and mainstream.

The company is also leading this niche market by operating in a manner that contributes to the well being of the planet – from using green power in the OUT Adventures head office to including carbon emission off-setting in the cost of approximately 15% of its trips in its first year and in all trips by 2010.

In order to provide the best itineraries at the most affordable prices, OUT Adventures has partnered with one of the world’s leading adventure tour operators, Intrepid Travel which will allow OUT to contract with a global network of destination management companies under the Intrepid brand.

Trips are available directly through the OUT Adventures website at www.out-adventures.com and through its affiliate www.rainbowtourism.com. For more information please contact the Rainbow Concierge, who is personally familiar with OUT Adventures' tours.
