LGBTQ Visitors and Allies Invited to Enjoy the Los Angeles Experience

Los Angeles continues to be a leading travel destination that is celebrated for its diversity and inclusion. The city boasts numerous lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) attractions including guided walking tours, events and exhibitions that highlight issues like gender identity and celebrate the city’s rich LGBTQ+ heritage.

 

Staying true to their hallmark Everyone is Welcome campaign, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board recently invited seven media members from across the globe to partake in many of the immersive LGBTQ-friendly experiences the city has to offer. This innovative familiarization trip was designed to educate both international and domestic travelers on the unique attractions throughout the city. India was a crucial representative in this media trip as the country is the 3 rd highest year-over-year international growth market for Los Angeles. In 2018, Los Angeles welcomed 130,000 visitors from India, an increase of 5.1% year-over-year

 

“We know LGBTQ travelers consider a destination’s inclusivity, safety and diversity during the travel planning process, and in Los Angeles we are proud to say that Everyone is Welcome. In addition to the iconic visitor experiences Los Angeles is known for, like our thriving cultural and arts scenes, attractions like the Griffith Observatory or our sports teams, Los Angeles also presents a series of experiences that pay homage to LGBTQ+ history,” stated Ms. Jamie Foley, Vice President, Global Communications for the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board.
