OUT In Colombia IGLTA Impact Award

By Charlotte Robinson, July 11, 2021

The IGLTA Foundation has announced that LGBTQ tour company OUT in Colombia is the recipient of the 2021 Impact Award that honors responsible tourism development. The award was launched this year in partnership with The TreadRight Foundation a non-profit organization created by The Travel Corporation’s family of brands to recognize a smaller business member (fewer than 10 employees) of the International LGBTQ Travel Association whose initiatives encourage sustainable tourism in three key areas: environment, community & diversity & inclusion. Sam Castañeda Holdren, Founder & CEO of OUT in Colombia stated, "With every one of our tours, we seek to introduce LGBTQ+ travelers to the new definition of all-inclusive, where you can travel well, travel out & make a difference all at the same time. It is truly an honor to be recognized by IGLTA, the IGLTA Foundation & The TreadRight Foundation for our efforts to give back to the community through responsible & sustainable tourism. As we strive for equality through travel, we hope that every new experience & cultural exchange leads to more compassion & understanding, while uplifting the diverse communities of the world." Theresa Belpulsi IGLTAF Board Chair concluded, “With all of the recent challenges our industry has faced, it’s important that we celebrate the work tourism businesses are doing to move the world forward in a better way. There are so many small IGLTA business members doing great work under the radar & with this new award, which we’ll present annually, they’ll get a much-deserved moment in the spotlight. We’re thrilled to recognize OUT in Colombia this year for their efforts.” For More Info…
