Signature Luxury Travel & Style launches new LGBTQ+ Platform
To meet the ever-growing demand for expert, relevant and topical information, advice and inspiration to help the LGBTQ+ demographic travel better, Signature Luxury Travel & Style magazine has launched a new LGBTQ+ digital content hub.
This inclusive travel content will be seamlessly integrated into our quarterly print magazine, fortnightly enewsletters and on the dedicated hub online here.
Cathy Wagstaff, CEO & Group Editor at Signature Media, says: “We are engaging reputable, high-profile and specialist travel writers as regular contributors, writing engaging first-person narratives, reviews and independent content that will focus on news, events and welcoming destinations for these sophisticated travellers.”
LGBTQ+ travel is a fast-growing and dynamic sector of the Australian and international travel market with an annual spend in excess of US$218 billion, according to global LGBTQ+ consulting firm, Out Now. Australians make a sizable contribution to this total, adding more than $6.9 billion dollars with an average annual growth rate of 2.8%.
With this combined buying power across almost every genre of luxury products, leisure and business travel – from high-end fashion, home styling, luxury cars and lifestyle products to luxury cruising, adventure, food and wine, hotels, resorts, private villas and the family sector – the global LGBTQ+ community travels more often, spends more money, and is constantly looking to expand its horizons beyond any other demographic.
The first features are a list of the safest and most welcoming countries to visit, ranked by the LGBTQ+ Danger Index, and a feature on the best global LGBTQ+ events and festivals for 2021.
