LAS VEGAS, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GayTravel.com — a trusted resource for LGBT+ travelers across the globe — today announced the launch of Let's get OUT there! SM
Let's get OUT there! is an initiative created to inspire LGBT+ travelers to explore fabulous destinations, seek out enriching events, and harness the collective buying power of gay travelers across the globe for the benefit of the LGBT+ community.
GayTravel Chief Visionary Officer Steve Rohrlick said: "While it is widely touted that the annual global LGBT+ travel market is valued in excess of $200 billion — Let's get OUT there! will not only identify select destinations and events around the globe that will inspire travelers to visit — it will also harness the collective buying power of this market for the benefit of the community itself by negotiating exclusive discounts and/or access to VIP experiences offered by select corporate travel partners."

Head to Orlando, FL for "Orlando United Day - A Day of Love and Kindness" on June 12 to honor the memory of the 49 Pulse Nightclub victims.
Patty Sheehan, Orlando's first openly gay elected official, said it best: "We will not be silenced. We will not be made to go away." Similarly, Mark Twain opined: "Travel is fatal to prejudice" — and Let's get OUT there! embodies this philosophy. GayTravel.com plans to inspire others to travel and travel proud.
