SUPPORTING LGBTQI HUMAN RIGHTS THROUGH TRAVEL
February 11, 2019
(LONDON)— Award-winning LGBTQI charity GiveOut and Diva Destinations, a leading LGBTQI travel company, today announced a new partnership.
Diva Destinations is encouraging its clients to support LGBTQI human rights activism around the world by donating to GiveOut and has pledged to match some of those donations.
“We have been looking to support a charity that fits with our values and is connected to our work organising LGBTQI travel. During the summer of 2018, I met Rupert Abbott, GiveOut’s Executive Director. When he started telling me about the causes GiveOut is supporting, we wanted to get involved,” said Jennifer Grant, Founder & Director of Diva Destinations.
“Our partnership with GiveOut will allow us to help in a small way in places where UK LGBTQI holiday-makers may love to visit but where LGBTQI communities do not always enjoy the freedom to be themselves. Our ambition is to fundraise £2,000 for GiveOut this year.”
“We are excited to be teaming up with Diva Destinations to bring new resources into the global LGBTQI human rights movement,” said Rupert Abbott, Executive Director of GiveOut.
“This partnership is another example of how GiveOut is growing LGBTQI philanthropy in new and innovative ways. Thank you, Diva Destinations!”
In 2012, after 15 years in the travel industry, Jennifer Grant established Diva Destinations in response to a gap in the travel market for LGBTQI hosted group holidays. Diva Destinations provide a personal service where members of the community can travel openly with like-minded people in a relaxed and friendly environment.
