beOUTbeFREE was born
Our founder, Marc Silver, launched beOUTbeFREE to exploit his personal experience and knowledge of travelling the world and share that with the LGBTQ+ community. Having had the opportunity to have travelled the world and experience, the majority of the locations we offer. As a ‘member’ of the LGBTQ+ community and travelled at the time within a previous relationship, had experienced many challenges and obstacles whilst travelling, from pretending we booked the wrong room layout, to acting ‘heterosexual’ to avoid uncomfortable situations, and this was in 5-star hotel receptions! Marc has spent most of his working life within the travel industry and when travelling he found his self getting frustrated with the lack of knowledge and company’s providing real LGBTQ+ friendly Hotels around the world that welcomed the LGBTQ+ community with equality arms. While Marc was travelling, he used the most common hotel booking sites to arrange his hotels, but this is where the challenges begun. When arriving at these hotels, it was pot luck to how they were received or how they had to be perceived. Upon return he started to get to work and build beOUTbeFREE a travel company for those who wish to embark on a Luxury Tailor-Made Holiday with LGBTQ+ at its core, using LGBTQ+ friendly hotels and suppliers, taking away fear of how we would be received. This combination seemed idealistic but with passion and drive, Marc kick-started beOUTbeFREE to open the world for the LGBTQ+ Traveller and build a portfolio of hotels around the world that welcome us with equality arms. beOUTbeFREE was born. Our ambition is to have a full comprehensive Portfolio of hotels around the world that welcome the LGBTQ+ community with equality arms, no matter where in the world this may be, for the safety and security of our community who want to see the world with no barriers.

We know what you're thinking, ‘don't all Travel Agents follow these things?’ The answer is yes, they should, as this is industry best practice; but often some fall short of the mark.
