“Are you two sisters?”—it’s the most common question my partner and I get when we’re travelling. And just to be clear—we look nothing alike. Before we had kids, sometimes I’d just smile, nod and keep walking. But with two impressionable small boys in tow, now I make a point to correct them with a firm but friendly, “No, we’re partners.”
It’s no surprise that this experience happens more frequently outside of Canada. This country of ours is consistently voted one of the most gay-friendly in the world, and it was among the first to legalize same-sex marriage. It’s generally very easy to travel as an LGBTQ+ family in Canada—you might raise some eyebrows, but the chance of getting any negative comments is very low. So if you want a relaxing getaway with your rainbow kids, check out these LGBTQ+ friendly destinations and hotel experiences.
