Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be awarded the prestigious Pinnacle Award for 2018 by the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) for making Canada a welcoming place for LGBT+ travellers.
The criteria for the board of directors chair selected award is to select an individual or business that has made the world a more welcoming place for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender travellers.
“I am incredibly proud to extend this IGLTA Honour to Prime Minister Trudeau. He presides over a country with some of the world’s most advanced LGBTQ rights, but instead of resting on those credentials, he makes it a personal point to vocally support our community and keep moving our issues forward,” IGLTA Board chair Juan Julia told Travel Daily News.
“There is no doubt that LGBTQ travellers are respected and embraced in Canada, and that welcoming message is amplified every day through his actions as Prime Minister.”
