LGBTQ+ Tourism Asia has been founded in 2020 by a team of doctoral students from School of Hotel and Tourism Management, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, as a voluntary research-based platform for LGBTQ+ inclusion in hospitality and tourism (H&T) sectors. Our team members are from diverse backgrounds and experienced in hospitality and tourism careers and LGBTQ+ advocacy. We aim to develop ourselves as a consultancy-based social enterprise that provides business solutions and connections between H&T businesses and LGBTQ+ communities. Our ultimate goal is to promote and develop LGBTQ+ inclusive H&T sectors where both businesses and communities can share collective benefits.
Our vision is to become Asia’s leading community-led social venture specialised in LGBTQ+ inclusion in hospitality and tourism industry. We are committed to tackling discriminatory actions against LGBTQ+ workers, customers, travellers, and promoting sexual and gender equalities in hospitality and tourism sectors.
