Sasha Alyson; and Out & About's gay travel award.

Alyson Adventures

Since 1995, Alyson Adventures has offered active, outdoor vacations and holidays for gay men, lesbians, and friends.

Company founder Sasha Alyson (left) already had a long history of involvement in the gay community. In 1980 he founded Alyson Publications, one of the country's earliest and most influential gay publishing companies, issuing some of the first books for gay teenagers (One Teenager in Ten; Reflections of a Rock Lobster), for children of gay and lesbian parents (Daddy's Roommate, Heather Has Two Mommies), for black gay men (In The Life; Brother to Brother), and for other groups largely ignored in literature. He also founded Bay Windows, Boston's gay newspaper.

Today, Alyson Adventures continues to break new ground, greatly expanding the range of holiday and travel opportunities available to gay men and lesbians. We offer the camaraderie of group travel, while also preserving the flexibility, challenge, and choices usually associated with solo travel. Our repeated awards from Out & About, the gay travel newsletter, confirm that we've succeeded. So do comments from people who have traveled with us. We hope you will soon be one of them.
