Darren Burn,, London, UK

Darren Burn is the founder of – the world’s leading luxury LGBT travel company. A former ITN journalist, he set up the company in 2016. The business also acquired, the world’s most visited LGBT travel website in 2018. With tens of millions of visitors a year, the site is a pillar of the LGBT travel market.

After 9/11, the LGBT community was shown to recover quickest compared to the mass market. The LGBT community is more likely to hold a passport and is brand loyal to companies that welcome LGBT travelers. We expect that the LGBT community will be one of the first to travel again once the pandemic is over and borders reopen.
