Who We Are
GayStay was founded with a single ethos: To provide safe, inclusive, and eclectic travel accommodations for the LGBTQ community.
Prejudice has no place at GayStay. Today, discrimination still threatens LGBTQ travelers and their potential hosts. We set out to eliminate these fears, and offer a completely unique home sharing experience for a diverse range of lifestyles. Gay owned and operated, GayStay is an online marketplace that allows people to list, browse, and book one-of-a-kind accommodations around the world. With GayStay, where you stay has the potential to be the most memorable part of your journey.
Our hosts and guests inspire us. We seek to create a thriving digital hub for the global LGBTQ community, where individuals can connect, share, and travel while enjoying a sense of affirmation, combined with all the comforts of home.
Launched in 2016, GayStay remains the first and only home sharing company dedicated to LGBTQ travelers and hosts. We take that mission seriously—but we aren’t afraid to have fun. We’re also passionate about giving back, and are committed to donating a portion of our profit to LGBTQ organizations as part of our goal to end youth homelessness.
As GayStay expands to new cities, our original vision remains the same: Ensuring travelers and hosts feel safe, welcome, and full of pride.
