An Emerging LGBTQ+ World- Proud Experiences

Aisha Shaibu discusses the emerging world of LGBTQ+ travel  – The challenges new LGBTQ+ focused destinations are facing with the emergence of new travel products, approaches and customer interests. Moderated by Sophie Griffins (TTG Media), panelist: Francesco Galli: Paul Gauger: Romey Louangvilay

 

The masterclass provides a profile overview of the LGBTQ+ travel market today, helping you formulate relevant marketing strategies and initiatives that are effective and generate ROI. Findings from ‘CMI’s 23rd Annual LGBTQ+ Tourism Research Study’ will be presented with a high-level discussion answering the question: “Who is the LGBTQ+ traveller?” Drilling down into the market’s profile (single/couples/families/young/mature), this panel will look at best practice in targeting and engaging with this community.

PROUD Experiences is the first of its kind. An international three-day event bringing together travel suppliers and buyers as well as lifestyle brands targeting the LGBTQ+ community.

Proud Experiences 2019 Edition

6 Dec 2019   Published by Estrangeira (Portugal)

Eu fui apresentada a este mundo de bares secretos em Londres na minha última viagem à cidade, a convite do Visit Britain. E foi sem dúvida a descoberta mais legal da viagem. Bares que você só pode entrar com uma senha, agendando com antecedência, chamando por uma cabine telefônica… São bares com passagens secretas e segredos que você terá que desvendar.

Eu fiz o tour When Night Falls in London/Secret Bar Tour da Moonlight Experiences, uma pequena empresa que organiza experiências muito legais, mais focadas no público LGBT. Mas esse tour é perfeito para qualquer viajante que queira conhecer lugares especiais.

 

A idealizadora (e nossa guia) foi a Aisha, uma mulher maravilhosa, inteligente, simpática e que sabe tudo de Londres! Ela inclusive passou uma temporada no Brasil trabalhando nas Olimpíadas e arrisca um pouco de português.

When Night Falls in London: a feature on host Aisha

In three words, Aisha describes her experience as unique, diverse, and authentic, and we couldn’t agree more. For an entire evening, participants will explore London’s queer culture through underground events, hidden gems, and enriching stories of the past and present. We wanted to get the inside scoop from Aisha about what people can expect from her tour, and what motivated her to create this unique experience - she shares her story here.

Why destinations have to change how they sell themselves

AirBnb and Visit Sweden have worked together to sell the country while Visit Jersey is leaning heavily on video content served up alongside life accommodation and tour offers. AirBnb has also launched Trips, turning hosts into centres of information. Is this hybrid model the way forward?

Militante LGBTQ+ qui défend l’intégration, la diversité et l’égalité à Londres, Aisha Shaibu travaille avec diverses organisations telles que UK Black Pride et London Queer Fashion Show. Soutenir les événements, les organismes de bienfaisance, les artistes et les lieux de spectacles queer locaux est au cœur de la création de son entreprise sociale : les soirées « Moonlight Experiences», (anciennement appelées “When Night Falls”).

Barbieturix: Beaucoup de gens ont pensé à créer des lieux ou entreprises qui permettent aux touristes LGBTQ +  de se réunir, mais très peu le font réellement. Pourquoi t’es-tu lancée ?

Aisha : J’ai commencé mon expérience de la vie nocturne LGBTQ+ ‘Moonlight Experiences’ il y a plus de deux ans. Mon parcours de création de la plateforme s’est déroulé de façon assez organique en raison de ma passion pour l’accueil et l’intégration au sein de la communauté queer de Londres. En tant que voyageuse passionnée, j’ai pensé qu’il était nécessaire de créer une plateforme comme la mienne parce que j’avais reconnu le besoin de me sentir en sécurité surtout la nuit en tant que femme noire queer. En voyage, il est également important d’avoir une expérience authentique dans de nouveaux pays.
