GAY TIMES and Celebrity Cruises launch “Trailblazers” LGBTQ+ online series

GAY TIMES and Celebrity Cruises announce “Trailblazers”, an online series exploring genuine LGBTQ+ travel experiences.

From 30th September until 4th October 2019, each mini-episode of “Trailblazers” will launch daily on GAY TIMES and Celebrity Cruises social media channels. Each episode aims to shine a light on queer travel, amplifying the voices of key representatives from the LGBTQ+ community, with the chosen influencers reflecting a range of diverse backgrounds.

Four pairs of new to cruise influencers reflect a different facet of the LGBTQ+ community. Setting sail to key LGBTQ+ European destinations including Barcelona, Valencia, Ibiza, Nice and Rome and culminating in the influencers’ participation in the third annual Pride at Sea onboard Celebrity Edge, they share their stories and build meaningful connections.

Jo Rzymowska, Managing Director, UK and Ireland Celebrity Cruises commented:

We were thrilled to welcome the cast of Trailblazers onboard Celebrity Edge, which we hope has positively shaped their perception of travelling as members of the LGBTQ+ community. We want everyone onboard our ships to feel appreciated and welcome, whoever they are, and am therefore delighted to launch this industry-leading content in partnership with GAY TIMES.

Tag Warner, CEO of GAY TIMES commented:

Through our ‘trailblazing’ partnership with Celebrity Cruises we’re thrilled to share our exploration of queer travel experience onboard Celebrity Edge. This industry-leading      collaboration has set the scene for a unique      LGBTQ+ travel experience – an onboard community of like-minded people, thriving in a young, free and dynamic environment, a safe space for self-expression set against the perfect Mediterranean backdrop.
