Our Founder and CEO, Melissa Tilling has written about Pride and the importance of continuing the fight for the Travel Trade Gazette.
"The importance of the protest, the cause and the Pride Movement to marginalised people around the world isn’t something just for June. It is a critical need that the LGBTQ+ community and our allies must champion year-round.
Let us wave the rainbow flag in words, actions and deeds year-round, protecting the spirit of the Stonewall riots to overcome intolerance, injustice and a lack of freedom to be one’s authentic self, wherever it is found."

Sure, book a volunteering vacation with a reputable grass-roots NGO, use a travel company with an established charitable foundation or simply sign up for an excursion with a local indigenous guide. See original adobe settlements in New Mexico’s Rio Grande valley with the Native Americans of Taos Pueblo or tour Madidi National Park in Bolivia with the Uchupiamonas. Or if you don’t want to devote your entire trip to an NGO’s mission, Charitable Travel is similar to a typical travel agent in the UK, except that a portion of the price of your high-end package holiday bought from this social enterprise goes to a charitable cause of your choosing.
