Purple Roofs Mentioned in the New York Times

Published Date Author: , June 1st, 2014

San Francisco City OasisThe New York Times ran a series of articles on gay travel this week, and we snagged a mention in one of them, Finding Comfort and Safety as a Gay Traveler”:

SLEEP IN COMFORT. This is your vacation, so the last thing you want to do is lie awake at night feeling unwanted, or even afraid, in your hotel room. If you’re not going to a place that is obviously welcoming (and of course this could include a business trip or family event when the location itself is not perhaps your first choice), try to find a spot that is gay-friendly or even gay-owned. There are resources like Purple Roofs, owned by J. Scott Coatsworth and Mark Guzman, which is a great tool for finding gay- and lesbian-friendly accommodations all over the world. You’ll be able to find a room in unexpected spots, too, in cities not necessarily known for being especially gay-friendly, like the Lattice Inn in Montgomery, Ala., for example.

Thanks to writer Steven McElroy for including us! 🙂
