GayTravel Chief Visionary Officer Steve Rohrlick said, “The GayTravel Awards are a natural extension of our brand. The goal of these awards is two-fold: first, to recognise and showcase select inclusive travel-related companies and destinations who meet the exacting standards of our discerning audience; and second, to inspire other companies and brands around the world to continually raise their service levels and amenities while encouraging a broad spirit of inclusiveness.”
