We believe that travel—the authentic, personal experience of different peoples, places, and cultures—is transformative.  That being gay allows us to cut through many of the formalities and barriers that separate most other travelers from the people and places they visit.  And in so doing, we experience a profoundly intimate global connection that few others will.

We believe that connecting with gay culture and embracing diversity is essential to preserving gay identity in an era of rapid assimilation.

We believe that our freedom to travel comes with a responsibility to advance the cause of freedom for LGBTQIA people all over the world.

Do your values match ours?

  • We travel with open hearts and open minds, and gratitude for the diversity of sights, tastes and experiences our world has to offer.
  • We choose to engage with nature and native cultures over being insulated from them.
  • We appreciate good design, style, luxury and fashion, but don’t live for them.
  • We enjoy great parties, great nightlife and great sex… but they’re just three of many reasons we travel.
  • We pay for quality, expect value, and love a good deal.
  • We’re curious about and respectful of local customs and traditions.

We are proud to be a Media Sponsor of the International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission. In our magazine and on our website there are occasional links to purchase travel-related products and services from which ManAboutWorld earns a commission.   We split that revenue 50/50 with the IGLHRC, supporting their work advancing Human Rights for Everyone. Everywhere.
