The Travel Unicorn was founded after my personal travel unicorn, a small pillow I brought with me around the world. I have been to over 32 countries on five continents and have always loved traveling with my little guy. After a trip to Sevilla, Spain in 2016 with my partner, I began to think more deeply about the need for LGBTQ+ travelers to be able to communicate with one another about their travel experiences. I researched advice for LGBTQ+ travelers and realized there was a urgent need for recommendations, advice and honest feedback from LGBTQ+ travelers. I started reaching out to my network and beyond of queer friends and travelers and realized a major gap in the travel industry. These voices and experiences were not being highlighted or shared.
Since founding The Travel Unicorn in November of 2016, we have cultivated a diverse and dedicated Instagram following along with launching the TTU storefront and continued to share the stories of LGBTQ+ travelers around the globe. From NYC to Morocco, and beyond we are here to share LGBTQ+ travel stories and adventures straight from the source. Real recommendations, adventurers, tips and tricks from the travelers themselves. Thank you to all those who have shared their stories, photos and reached out to us throughout the years.
