Gay-Friendly, why is it important?
Being gay friendly is important because as gays and lesbians living as a minority in a world that is still filled with discrimination and hate it is important to us to vacation in a place where we can be ourselves and feel comfortable, welcomed, and supported. Whistler, in particular our partners, are the definition of gay friendly.
