The LGBT community has known Calgary as one of the few very welcoming cities. Many establishments and events welcome performances from the said community. There are even dedicated festivals that are focused on them. For these reasons, there is no wonder many gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, and queers want to travel to Calgary.
The hotels in Calgary have conducted efforts to be more welcoming to LGBT travelers. This means that issues like discrimination, sexism, and harassment are mitigated to the point that they can’t occur at all. Among the eager hotels are Calgary Marriott Downtown, Hotel Arts, The Hyatt Regency Calgary, and Executive Royal Hotel.
Those hotels are some of the best in the city. Aside from them, hostels and other stay-in establishments within and near the city have training programs to become queer-friendly. Despite all of the prevention and assurances, problems can occur unintentionally.
One of the most common is having two friends of the same gender mistaken as a couple. This can create an awkward experience if not resolved quickly. Employees are required to exercise, giving consumers the benefit of the doubt. If a wrong assumption is made and affects the well-being of the consumers in any way, corrections are to be done swiftly.
