The first luxury travel company to focus on chic romantic getaways and sophisticated honeymoons for gay couples, launched today.
Gay marriage is now legal in nine U.S. states and Washington, D.C. and there is the strong possibility of national legalization, when the Supreme Court is expected to announce its decision in June. The history making company is the first gay and lesbian-owned company focusing specifically on vetted luxury and romantic travel products for the discerning gay traveler. Co-Founders Tom Stanley, former president of luxury tour operators Travcoa and Cox & Kings, The Americas, has joined forces with Laurie Wolfe, former creative director of Victoria’s Secret and former vice president of Home Shopping Network.
“We’re seeing dramatic changes in how gay marriages are being valued by Americans and by gay people themselves,” said Laurie Wolfe. “Before, there were quiet backyard ceremonies and an ‘invisibility’ to gay relationships. Now, gay people are marrying in churches and having destination weddings with their families, co-workers and friends.”
“We’ve already received a warm reception and great support from the hotel industry, such as the Orient Express Group, which owns some of the world’s finest hotels including The Cipriani
The new website features more than 300 hotels and destinations in gay-friendly areas around the world with romantic packages at many hotels. All honeymoons and romantic destinations can be customized for the perfect romantic vacation for the couple.
