22 marks 50 years since HE Travel’s founder Hanns Ebensten put a small ad in New York’s After Dark arts magazine. Hanns’ future tour director Cal Culver (aka gay porn star Casey Donovan) appeared on their cover. Hanns invited “discerning gentlemen” to join him for a week in the Grand Canyon the following year, thus initiating a half-century of gay travel.
I would like to share my gratitude for what the past year has offered us. Despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, we at HE Travel have run tours to 16 countries on 5 continents (6 if you count Jordan as part of Asia). And if all goes well, we will add India and Antarctica early in 2022 to return gay travel to all seven continents!
We at HE Travel are proud to have run safe gay travel tours this year to four continents. Our diverse destinations have included Peru, the Galapagos Islands, Iceland, Germany, the Czech Republic, Namibia, New Mexico & Colorado, and the Grand Canyon. Before the end of the year, we will add Italy, Greece, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Egypt, and Jordan.
