Gary Hart August 2, 2019

This weekend, local independent travel agent, Marc Silver ‚Äčand his team, ‚Äčwill be out in force promoting his new travel business aimed at the LGBT+ communities.

MARC’S business – ‚ÄčbeOUTbeFREE‚Äč.com‚Äč ‚Äď offers LGBT+ holidaymakers and travellers the opportunity to travel the world in comfort while feeling safe in their own sexuality.

Marc believes there is a huge gap in the market for ‚Äčgay ‚ÄčLGBT+‚Äč friendly holidays and is already helping customers travel the world in a safe and welcoming environment where everyone is equal.

He offers LGBT+ luxury bespoke and tailor-made travel options from short-haul holidays to popular European resorts, to long-haul holidays of a lifetime to exotic destinations.

Marc said: ‚ÄúWe scan the world looking for hotels that welcome the LGBT+ community with equality ‚Äčopen arms‚Äč, where our community is treated equal and safe‚Ä̬†

‚ÄúOver the last 20 years I have travelled the world and experienced first-hand the issues of staying in¬†hotels with my partner‚Äč and‚Äč have felt the pain we have when travelling. and was frustrated by¬†the lack of real choice for LGBTQ+ travellers, when visiting overseas destinations outside of Europe, ‚Äč I¬†believe that there is a huge demand for this type of service within the LGBTQ+ arena‚Äč, as we, the¬†LGBTQ+ community wants to see the world too, but we want to feel safe and we want to feel¬†welcome‚Äč.‚Ä̬†

Mr Silver found in particular a lack of choice of LGBT+ friendly hotels in Brazil, Japan, China and Hong Kong. He has now secured accommodation in all these destinations‚Äč and many others around the world, ‚Äčwho openly welcome gay travellers‚Äč‚Äč. The choice is getting bigger and the destinations are increasing.
