HomoCulture, North America’s leading source on gay culture announced today the 2022 HomoCulture Tour has returned after a two year pause due to the COVID-19 global health pandemic. The HomoCulture Tour is a carefully curated collection of events, festivals, and destinations, designed to celebrate the diverse and colorful community, report on the stories that matter most to the queer community, feature the hottest LGBTQ+ events and destinations, and showcase the best of gay culture.
HomoCulture founder and visionary, Brian Webb, will embark on the HomoCulture Tour, which will make stops in 11 confirmed cities in 2022, with more stops to be announced throughout the summer. The HomoCulture Tour will travel to Pride parades, festivals, street fairs, parties, and LGBT-friendly destinations. These experiences will culminate into captivating, in-depth stories on the HomoCulture website and memorable social media content.
For 2022, the HomoCulture Tour has prioritized visits to Canadian destinations and events, Pride celebrations that have not previously been a part of the HomoCulture Tour, and quintessential happenings on the gay agenda. Confirmed, new, and first-time tour stops include Halifax Pride, PEI Pride, and Pride Winnipeg.
“Each stop on the HomoCulture Tour is carefully selected and planned so we can experience welcoming and inclusive accommodations, activities, and events the destination offers,” explains HomoCulture owner and editor-in-chief, Brian Webb. “This allows our team the opportunity to learn first-hand about the issues, challenges, and successes of the LGBT community at a grassroots level.”
Over the years, HomoCulture has built a strong reputation for recommending, capturing, and reporting on gay events and LGBTQ+ friendly destinations. The stops on the HomoCulture Tour are selected and planned around key events on the gay calendar, based on their importance, timing, priority, and regular input from HomoCulture readers.
“Attending Pride and other queer events allows our team to provide accurate reviews and viewpoints of these destinations and happenings so our readers can make informed decisions on where and what they will plan to visit in the future,” said Brian Webb. “Through powerful storytelling, our own, high-impact photography, and unique on-the-ground experiences, we are able to produce fantastic, rich, and original content for our fans and followers, which they have come to rely on.”
