December 2021

Like most people, LGBTQ+ travelers are looking forward to a new year that will allow for safer and more hassle-free travel. And there are plenty of reasons to look forward to 2022.

A top international choice for kicking off the new year in party mode is White Party Bangkok, billed as Asia’s largest gay New Year’s Eve festival. There’s yet another chance to celebrate when the Thai new year begins in April, with the massive G Circuit Songkran Festival attracting still more LGBTQ+ revelers.

The first months of the new year prove a great time for skiers; among the best options for LGBTQ+ travelers are Colorado’s Aspen Gay Ski Week, Switzerland’s Arosa Gay Ski Week and Canada’s 29th annual Whistler Pride and Ski Festival, all in January.

Tour operators and travel agencies, meanwhile, make it easy for LGBTQ+ globetrotters to rediscover the pleasure of travel. In South America, Out in Colombia — winner of the 2021 Impact Award from the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association — offers a fresh array of Colombia tour options, while a travel agency called Travel Brilliant upped its family-friendly LGBTQ+ vacation options, including a new “gay dads family spring break” offer at Universal Orlando Resort.

Orlando, in fact, offers multiple new reasons to visit in 2022. Walt Disney World continues marking its 50th anniversary with fresh entertainment likely to make the next Gay Days events even more fun. New hotels in the area include Lake Nona Wave Hotel, opening this month and featuring LGBTQ+ performers as part of its entertainment roster.

Pride events will likely be larger in 2022, giving travelers more reasons to head to destinations like New York City, Amsterdam and Puerto Rico, which hosts two vibrant celebrations. Travelers looking for pride-worthy accommodations in the northeastern United States, meanwhile, should consider Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino, which debuted a Rainbow Suite at Fox Tower in partnership with Bubly sparkling water. It’s just one of the many venues ready to welcome LGBTQ+ travelers in the new year.

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
