New Thomas Cook Ad Features Gay Kiss

It’s always great when a brand chooses to use a same-sex couples in their advertisements. Thomas Cook has just realised it’s a new ad featuring a gay kiss, and I think that’s pretty awesome. After an incident with Thomas Cook, involving a lesbian couple who complained after being told to just “act as friends or siblings” on their honeymoon in a country where being gay is illegal. I guess Thomas Cook had some making up to do. Personally, when I see ads that feature the LGBT community it makes me view that brand in a whole different light. It shows that they are viewing me as someone they wish to target. They are showing that we are just as much a part of everyday life, a normal human being, the same as any other couple.

Lesbian Travel Bloggers You Should Be Reading

Travel blogging has become a huge industry, with everybody and anybody blogging about their travel experiences.

5 Fears Travelling As A Lesbian Couple

5 Fears Travelling As A Lesbian Couple

It’s normal to be apprehensive before embarking on an around the world trip. We naturally worry about the unknown. Especially if you are travelling as a lesbian couple. For everyone and anyone the world can be a scary place. I think I am safe to assume that most women can carry a heavier baggage of fear when they travel. Travelling as a couple can also bring a new set of worries too. But what if we combine this with being a Lesbian couple, I think the rucksack gets a bit bulkier. My girlfriend and I are embarking on a trip around the world. We’ve already spent the last 7 months in Australia, even though same sex marriage isn’t yet legalised I personally view the UK and Australia as quite similar in regards to gay rights. But soon we will be heading further afield into South East Asia and South America. To be honest I don’t know what to really expect, not only in regards to gay rights, but also societal attitudes too. I’m sure we …
