Objectives

  • Enlist 4 LGBT travel bloggers to Benidorm during Gay Pride
  • Promote the city as a destination for LGBT travelers
  • Share their experience via their online channels and blogs

Pride celebrations are important public statements of LGBT rights, acceptance and the continued fight for equality. We believe there is no better way to spread this message than visiting a host city during pride to increase the visibility of LGBT travel and acceptance through our inspiring, digital storytelling.
