As LGBT tourism continues to grow, travel-planning app and website Gogobotjust announced its 2016 top destinations where the specialized sector is expanding. Atlanta topped the list this year beating out Minneapolis and Boston—Dubai even cracked the top 10 briefly before being removed considering homosexuality is illegal in the region.
“Gogobot’s LGBT Tribe is exploring exciting new spots that transcend traditional LGBT travel destinations like Miami, San Francisco, and Provincetown,” Krista Canfield, Gogobot’s Getaway Expert told Travel + Leisure via email. “Sadly over the past year Gogobot has had to issue disclaimers here in the U.S. about travel safety related to discrimination and anti-LGBT legislation. On the flip side, we’re excited this year to be able to celebrate cities like Atlanta, Minneapolis and Tampa where there are many restaurants, nightclubs, and neighborhoods that are LGBT friendly and a number of organizations that help support and promote those businesses’ growth and success.”
