This is the kind of support we expect of travel suppliers marketing to our community — Not just the assurance that they’re gay friendly, but a willingness to publicly support our global struggle for human rights.

Nearly a decade ago, Expedia did a deal with OUT&ABOUT to syndicate gay content on their website. In 2010, they teamed up with the IGLTA to add a “gay-friendly filter based on IGLTA membership to their hotel searches.  Last month, they came out in support of Referendum 74 supporting gay marriage in Washington State.  This week, they released this poignant video about the power of travel to create understanding.  Bravo, Expedia.  Where you book does indeed matter.
