The Thailand Rediscovered Issue
OutThere – The Thailand Rediscovered Issue
Printed in the United Kingdom
Ten years ago, we came up with the idea to create a luxury travel publication that told stories about our world in an inclusive way, one that is all about diversity, discovery and discernment. We knew that our own community of LGBTQ+ travellers was looking for more, and so was a wider audience, who never saw themselves represented in the mainstream press and didn’t always feel celebrated or that they ‘belonged’ as they travelled the globe.
Having recently launched its ‘Go Thai. Be Free.’ diversity programme, the Tourism Authority of Thailand recognised that it shared our values. So, we partnered up to make the first-ever issue of the then OutThere/Travel, ‘The Amazing Thailand Issue’. To celebrate a decade in print, we’ve come full circle, again with its support, to showcase what amazing new chapters lie in store there.
We explore the concept of healing in our Topography section, where our Experientialists report back from Mexico and The Islands of Tahiti. We visit a hotelier couple, who – in a way that only OutThere folk can – straddle properties in Provence and Bali. And, on the theme of coming full circle, we revisit the first hotel we ever reviewed in NYC.
