The downloadable guide offers advice and resources so that all people can travel at ease and with confidence, offering support for the LBGTQ in particular and launching during Pride month

The travel insurance company AIG Travel recently teamed up with the digital magazine ManAboutWorld to create the LGBTQ Travel Safety guide.

The online resource offers valuable tips and advice to all LGBTQ travelers to ensure a fun but safe trip. Currently, homosexuality is still illegal in 72 countries around the globe. This guide acknowledges the issues the LGBTQ community can face when traveling abroad and offers education, support and awareness for everyone to learn and be involved.

“We recognize the need for greater understanding and awareness regarding safety for LGBTQ travelers, and developed the following resources and support to assist LGBTQ travelers with information that will help them feel more comfortable as they plan their travel,” said on the LGBTQ Travel Safety guide’s website.

Travelers have a variety of resources on hand to help with researching and planning for an upcoming vacation, featuring anything from traveling with medication to proper documentation, like applying for a visa as a married couple.

“AIG Travel recognized the need for greater understanding and awareness regarding safety for LGBTQ travelers and we took steps to ensure this community didn’t feel deterred from traveling due to the potential added risks,” said AIG Travel CEO Jeff Rutledge. This initiative shows the increasing commitment to supporting LGBTQ members, helping ensure that all people have the right to travel and life their lives to the fullest and easy access to the information they need.
