Top Gay Travel Destinations of 2006


According to the Travel Industry Association in partnership with Harris Interactive and Witeck-Combs Communications in a national survey conducted among 2,020 self-identified gay travelers 21 and older who have taken at least one leisure trip within the past 12 months, nearly half of gay travelers prefer to travel to destinations that are "gay-friendly". Over half of gay travelers and two-thirds of lesbian travelers desired a place where they could hold their partner's hand without fear of harassment. The survey also found that gay men tend to spend more on trips than lesbians and heterosexuals.
