When we started dating we did not realize how much being an LGBT couple would change every aspect of our lives. We wanted to have a section dedicated to our LGBTQ readers who wanted more insight on the community. We have written about nightlife, movies to watch, updates on global change and more!
Our idea for The Purple Diaries was inspired while we were traveling and were approached by LGBT people world wide on how to do it and what to expect. Traveling can be one of the most rewarding experiences in someone's life, however, traveling as LGBTQ+ there are things to be aware of. It is still illegal in over 170 countries to be gay and many pose strict laws against us. While we want to encourage the LGBTQ community to follow their passion for adventure, we also want to advise and educate to keep people safe while they do so.
Find purple excerpts at the bottom of each travel blog posts for Purple Diary entries.
