Pink Coconuts is rooted in inclusion and diversity. It is a strategy and a tool used to build inclusive societies within tropical destinations, where LGBTQ people are thought to be more persecuted.
Often times, LGBTQ people avoid certain destinations because of real or perceived homophobia or because they stand in solidarity with communities who live there - these feelings and stances are all valid. However, statistically, LGBTQ people are disproportionately affected by unemployment, homelessness and discrimination in many countries across the world.
We at Pink Coconuts believe that in the developing world - economics and travel can change the game. By travelling with Pink Coconuts you can create LGBTQ travel industry that can and will provide employment, businesses and an ecosystem dependent on LGBTQ people - one in which LGBTQ people will not just be able to survive but to thrive in.
In any country regardless of how homophobic you think it may be, there are warm, beautiful LGBTQ friendly people, allies and businesses who want a more inclusive world - just like you do. Pink Coconuts brings that community together.
We recognise that travel brings people together, changes lives and can transform people and communities. To do this, we need your help.
We need you to travel to new and beautiful destinations and explore them with an open heart and an open mind.
We will point you to the gems that exist within each country and ensure that you immerse yourself in culture, nature, luxury and have the time of your lives in the safety of local communities.
