Gay Travel 2013: 8 Destinations For LGBT Travelers To Visit Or Avoid

Unfortunate news for Detroit residents: Michigan's metropolis gets rated the "most dangerous U.S. city to visit for gay travelers" in a new LGBT luxury travel survey.

Instead, gay travelers would be considerably better served by visiting Paris, which is called the "best destination for singles," or Istanbul, the "best destination for gays and their girlfriends," by ALT (Alternative Luxury Travel) By Bruvion, a new company catering to LGBT travel needs.

The gay-owned and operated company affords clients "an insight that they won't find" at other travel outlets, according to co-founder Jason Couvillion.

Take a look at more information on ALT By Bruvion here.
