Gay-friendly tour in Goa this July
Panaji, May 2: Come July, Goa could just be the toast of the season for gay Indians.

IndjapInk, which claims to be the country's first and only gay boutique travel agency, has organised a "Life is a Beach" package that not only promises a "sexy group tour" to Goa but also "compatible roommates" if you've bought a single ticket.

The three-night-four-day package is being billed by IndjapInk as the "most sensational, super sexy Gay group tour of the year to Goa".

Tour apart, the other hook offered by package is a chance to just bump into the hunk of your dreams.

"Get to know, interact and make friends. Strengthen your bond with that special one on the beach sands of Goa or u never know..., u just might find the man of your dreams," says IndjapInk's Facebook page, specially dedicated to the travel package.

The tourism and trade industry sees Goa as one of the most popular and gay friendly tourism destinations in the country.

The number of gays entering into wedlock in Goa has been on the rise and NGOs working for the betterment of the LGBT communities have been demanding legalization for such marriages. Also with the number of gay bars and pubs in Goa, the potential of gay tourism in here immense.

Gaurish Dhond, former president of the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG), wholeheartedly endorsing the overtures to the LGBT segment, said: "It is a trend which is gaining currency worldwide. You will have to accept global trends. The society here will accept it. Tourism here will have to grow."

And gay tours like "Life is a Beach" only underline the importance of LGBT holiday packages to the tourism industry.

The package involves airport-to-hotel transfers, unlimited alcohol, poolside parties and boat cruises, apart from lodgings at a luxury gay-friendly facility.

Delhi-based IndjapInk claims on its website that it offers the opportunity for gays to "enjoy a relaxed vacation in India without fear of discrimination".

"We are only recommending properties we handpick and think you'll love," say the promoters of the travel agency, one of whom is Sanjay Malhotra, a fashion designer based in the capital.
