Why is the PROUD program limited to geographies that are already relatively LGBTQ-friendly?
Booking.com website reads: "Travel Proud is our way of making travel more inclusive for the LGBTQ+ community. Complete our Proud Hospitality training session to help you and your staff understand and connect with LGBTQ+ travellers. When you commit to building on what you learn to make your property more welcoming, you’ll become Proud Certified on our platform." O.k., fine, ready to go! But....: participation is only open for venues in 24 specific cities in NL, Germany and UK, such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Manchester. While destinations in let's say Turkey and Greece could be equally (not to say: much more) in need for this. Why so shy, Booking? The pilot was succesful, so now let your global partners decide if they feel it is the right time and place for this, where ever and whenever they want!
