An Emerging LGBTQ+ World- Proud Experiences
Aisha Shaibu discusses the emerging world of LGBTQ+ travel – The challenges new LGBTQ+ focused destinations are facing with the emergence of new travel products, approaches and customer interests. Moderated by Sophie Griffins (TTG Media), panelist: Francesco Galli: Paul Gauger: Romey Louangvilay

Proud Experiences 2019 Edition

Eu fui apresentada a este mundo de bares secretos em Londres na minha última viagem à cidade, a convite do Visit Britain. E foi sem dúvida a descoberta mais legal da viagem. Bares que você só pode entrar com uma senha, agendando com antecedência, chamando por uma cabine telefônica… São bares com passagens secretas e segredos que você terá que desvendar.
Eu fiz o tour When Night Falls in London/Secret Bar Tour da Moonlight Experiences, uma pequena empresa que organiza experiências muito legais, mais focadas no público LGBT. Mas esse tour é perfeito para qualquer viajante que queira conhecer lugares especiais.
A idealizadora (e nossa guia) foi a Aisha, uma mulher maravilhosa, inteligente, simpática e que sabe tudo de Londres! Ela inclusive passou uma temporada no Brasil trabalhando nas Olimpíadas e arrisca um pouco de português.

Why destinations have to change how they sell themselves
AirBnb and Visit Sweden have worked together to sell the country while Visit Jersey is leaning heavily on video content served up alongside life accommodation and tour offers. AirBnb has also launched Trips, turning hosts into centres of information. Is this hybrid model the way forward?

Interviw ith Aisha Shaibu
Militante LGBTQ+ qui défend l’intégration, la diversité et l’égalité à Londres, Aisha Shaibu travaille avec diverses organisations telles que UK Black Pride et London Queer Fashion Show. Soutenir les événements, les organismes de bienfaisance, les artistes et les lieux de spectacles queer locaux est au cœur de la création de son entreprise sociale : les soirées « Moonlight Experiences», (anciennement appelées “When Night Falls”).
Barbieturix: Beaucoup de gens ont pensé à créer des lieux ou entreprises qui permettent aux touristes LGBTQ + de se réunir, mais très peu le font réellement. Pourquoi t’es-tu lancée ?
Aisha : J’ai commencé mon expérience de la vie nocturne LGBTQ+ ‘Moonlight Experiences’ il y a plus de deux ans. Mon parcours de création de la plateforme s’est déroulé de façon assez organique en raison de ma passion pour l’accueil et l’intégration au sein de la communauté queer de Londres. En tant que voyageuse passionnée, j’ai pensé qu’il était nécessaire de créer une plateforme comme la mienne parce que j’avais reconnu le besoin de me sentir en sécurité surtout la nuit en tant que femme noire queer. En voyage, il est également important d’avoir une expérience authentique dans de nouveaux pays.
