Here at GayTravel, we often find ourselves waiting in an airport lobby, sitting on a that 5 hour flight hopping back and forth from East to West coast USA, or even those cramped and long flights across the pond. We get to explore beautiful islands, vast deserts, and the worlds top LGBT destinations. With all that traveling we rely on some nifty gadgets to make our travels more comfortable, easier, and more memorable. Here are 6 of our favorite gadgets we are using as we travers the world making gay travel available to all.
