In an effort to expand the site, I've been adding more guest contributors and, today, I'm announcing a LGBT column for the website. In this column, we will hear from voices in the LGBT community about their experiences on the road, safety tips, events, and, overall, advice for other LGBT travelers get the most out of their time on the road! So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce everyone to Adam from travelsofadam.com. He's going to be the lead for this column (though we'll shortly have writings from other voices in the community too!).
A common phrase is that the world is getting smaller, but for the queer community it's only getting bigger.

A small but growing army of travelers with special needs is emerging, fueled by a desire to experience different cultures, have adventures and collect memories much the same as most travelers.
Yet, save for a handful of agents and operators whose passion it is to advocate for and assist special-needs travelers with their plans, this market remains pretty much off the radar screens for much of the industry.
