Let's Shape the Future of LGBTQ Travel
Explore The New Online Platform That Connects LGBTQ Travelers With LGBTQ Guides
Vancouver, Canada, November 23, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Rainbow Campaign, the LGBT crowdfunding platform exclusively for campaigns that benefit the LGBT individual and/or the LGBT community, proudly announces the launch of its latest crowdfunding project: “Guide Me Away – Let’s Shape The Future Of LGBTQ Travel”.
Lia Hershkovitz, owner and campaigner of “Guide Me Away”, explains the idea behind her project: “Travel is more than your destination; it's about the people you meet along the way. Get the local's perspective of your destination by connecting with a local LGBTQ guide who shares your interests.“
Travel is the only thing we buy that makes us richer.

With Guide Me Away, a user can indicate the dates and which area they are traveling to and what their interests are. The online platform connects the user with all LGBTQ locals/guides with similar interests that are available and how much they charge.
In return, the user can become a tour guide him/herself in their own city on Guide Me Away to guide other travelers around their hometown, giving them a travel experience from a local’s point of view – away from tourist traps.
Lia Hershkovitz, working in the travel industry since nine years, says: “It’s important to create safe and open connections for the gay community. We make is easier to find your community anywhere you go, keeping your experience affordable, enjoyable and safe.”
Much of the Guide Me Away backend and functionality is nearing completion, however additional financial support is in need to make it more user-friendly and to market it properly. That’s why Lia Hershkovitz aims to raise the remaining financing via crowdfunding. The campaign needs USD 5,000 to cover development and marketing expenses. Anyone who is interested in a positive impact on the future of the LGBTQ travel experience can fund the campaign on Rainbow Campaign now (https://www.rainbowcampaign.com).
