Curaçao to be named ‘Destination Pioneer’ at gay travel convention

Curaçao is to be given a ‘Destination Pioneer’ award by the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA). 

The award will be in recognition of Curaçao’s efforts to attract queer travellers.

The Caribbean island – a country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands with a population of 150,000 – will be bestowed with the award at the organisation’s Annual Global Convention event in Los Angeles in April.

In an announcement, the IGLTA enthused: ‘Curaçao has created several LGBT marketing campaigns and continues to make strides in equality for the gay community in an effort to become one of the most welcoming destinations for LGBT travelers in the Caribbean – a region that often makes headlines for homophobia.’

The IGLTA also praised the island’s ‘Live and Let Live’ philosophy.
