The International LGBTQ+ Travel Association iglta.org wants to know how you are feeling about travel and what your plans are for the next six months. (Take the survey bit.ly/3lSyi7M in English, Spanish, Portuguese, or French, and you can also sign up for a chance to win $100)
Since 1983, the IGLTA has provided free travel resources while promoting equality and safety within LGBTQ+ tourism globally. The mission of IGLTA is to provide information and resources for LGBTQ+ travelers and expand LGBTQ+ tourism globally by demonstrating its significant social and economic impact.
The survey asks in part about our travel plans for the next six months. Of course, the IGLTA is aware that our feelings about the pandemic and the safety of travel can change quickly. The organization conducted a previous survey in April/May 2020. The results from the earlier survey suggested that two-thirds (66 percent) of global respondents would be comfortable returning to leisure travel by the end of 2020. Certainly travel spiked over the winter holidays, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommended staying home — and most of us heeded the advice.
But things are beginning to change, especially with vaccines rolling out around the world. So how are LGBTQ+ tourists feeling now, nearly a year later? That’s a question that IGLTA (and for that matter Out Traveler and others serving the LGBTQ+ travel market) want to know.
Conducting this second COVID travel survey will also gauge any change in consumer sentiment since the previous one. Information collected in this short (5 min) survey will help the organization (and the industry) support LGBTQ+ travelers as tourism rebounds from the global pandemic.
