EQUAL Africa


    EQUAL Africa 2021 will be held at the CTICC, in Cape Town. South Africa is a leader in the global struggle for equality and LGBTQ+ civil rights, having become the first country in the world to constitutionally prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation in 1996 and then legalizing same-sex marriage 10 years later. Though challenges still remain on the continent, the landscape is evolving, and more countries have decriminalised same sex relationships and are proudly promoting LGBTQ+ adventurers whether they are seasoned or first-time visitors. Equal Africa is proud to partner with the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA) who will lead the latest content.

  • The International LGBTQ+ Travel Association advances LGBTQ+ travel globally by providing information and resources for LGBTQ+ travellers and demonstrating the significant social and economic impact of LGBTQ+ tourism. IGLTA’s membership includes LGBTQ+ welcoming accommodations, destinations, travel advisors, tour operators, events and travel media in 80 countries.
