Despite numerous calls for tourism research on the LGBTQ + community beyond western developed nations, this gap remains unaddressed in a way that empowers LGBTQ + people – particularly those in places where such identities are still criminalised. Travel can play an essential role in the lives of LGBTQ + people by providing a space for identity exploration, affirmation and reinvention.
