LGBTQ+ people are becoming increasingly conscious of their safety when planning trips abroad, a new study has found. Almost four in 10 (39%) LGBTQ+ people research their threat of safety before travelling, with a staggering 65% of people who identify as marginalised looking into a place’s attitude towards them before going there.
The reputation of a region’s police force was also a determining factor in whether or not people travel somewhere, with exactly half (50%) of respondents avoiding places where this perception is negative.
Additionally, 67% of those who took the survey said they would look into a country’s police reputation before reporting a serious crime when travelling. “Queer travellers have to strike a balance between enjoying themselves and not compromising their own safety, and our guides and functionalities have been updated to reflect the need for inclusivity in the travel space,” said Kesang Ball, co-founder of Trippin, the travel platform who conducted the survey. “The current design of the travel industry erases certain groups of people, specifically those who are intersectionally disadvantaged.
