In 2020 the 5th annual Gay Travel Awards presented by GayTravel.com recognized the top hotels and resorts (decided by online voting) embracing LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusiveness while providing the best accommodations.
"This year has been like no other," GayTravel's Steve Rohrlick said in a statement. "With the pandemic raging across the globe, many travelers are restricted from traveling or waiting for a safer time. In the meantime, The Gay Travel Awards give us all a moment to focus on the industry's best as a prologue to a time when it's safer to get back out there."
