US based GayTravel.com – a trusted resource for LGBT travelers across the globe –  today announced the winners of the inaugural Gay Travel Awards.

Since 1999, GayTravel has served the LGBT community by providing information and raising awareness of inclusive travel companies and destinations where travelers can research, plan, and book memorable, lifetime travel experiences.

GayTravel Chief Visionary Officer Steve Rohrlick said, “The GayTravel Awards are a natural extension of our brand. The goal of these awards is two-fold: first, to recognize and showcase select inclusive travel-related companies and destinations who meet the exacting standards of our discerning audience; and second, to inspire other companies and brands around the world to continually raise their service levels and amenities while encouraging a broad spirit of inclusiveness.”
