Fagabond.com Launches for Gay Travelers
Fagabond.com, the new gay travel-planning website, launched this week with roots in Philadelhia. The site features booking widget powered by Travelocity and gives the LGBT-focused lowdown, including destination descriptions, nightlife picks, must-try restaurants, fabulous events and more, for 20 of the country’s top LGBT cities. Users can also find travel deals and sign up for the e-newsletter.
“Fagabond is five years in the making, and we’re thrilled with the final product,” said Fagabond co-owner (and obvious perfectionist) Mike Sheridan. “While the descriptions and headlines are tongue-in-cheek—we want people to actually enjoy the planning stage—the content is informational, accurate, and compelling for a gay person mapping out their next getaway.”
Fagabond’s other co-owner, Jim Werner, added, “Our goal for users is in the tagline: ‘Same Sex. Different Travel.’ It’s where the gay community can find the information that will help them choose their destinations, plan their trips, and book their stays—all for gays, all by gays, and all in one place.”
The owners agree that what sets their LGBT travel website apart from others is the booking capability provided by renowned travel engine Travelocity, making it a full-service planning tool. Users can reserve their hotels, flights, cars, and attraction tickets—all without leaving Fagabond.
