UK Govt works with GETA to protect gay travellers

Gay Welcome, Dec 10

GETA - the Gay European Tourism Association (and the parent of GayWelcome.com) has teamed up as an official partner with the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office to alert gay travellers to the dangers of travelling in Europe.


The FCO provides advice to travellers to help prevent accidents and problems when on holiday with its "Know Before You Go" campaign. 

 

Christmas is a busy time for travellers - who go on a lot of short city breaks. So on December 1st the FCO launched its Christmas awareness campaign with the theme of "The 12 Days of Christmas".

 

Every day for 12 days, the FCO is publicising a different aspect of traveler advice. In recognition of today (December 10) being the day that same sex couples in the UK are able to convert their Civil Partnerships to full marriage, the FCO's theme today is aimed specifically at LGBT travelers (see the graphic on the right.)

 

Both GETA and the FCO are working together to give advice tailored to the needs of LGBT travellers on their respective websites - and today's theme reminds gay people to check out this practical advice before setting off on holiday.
