Launched in August 2011, with the tagline The next generation in gay travel, Brand g was created with the help of 25-year industry veteran Charlie Rounds, who has deep roots in gay group travel.
Although Brand g products will be primarily for gays and lesbians, Brand g has positioned itself to capture a growing segment of the LGBT community that includes a mix of gay men and lesbians, as well as straight allies.
Brand g will primarily offer innovative escorted vacations to international destinations. From the unique ships we charter to the wide variety of destinations we include in our travel programs, there’s something for everyone. Whether you're traveling with a partner or interested in making new friends, we have several trips throughout the year that provide excellent opportunities to explore the world with others that share similar values.
Brand g Vacations is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Mark Travel Corporation (TMTC) and all Brand g trips are operated by The Forward Motion Group (FMG). Beginning September 6, 2014, ownership of Brand g Vacations will transfer to FMG through a licensing agreement and all trips after that date will be offered under the ownership of and operated by FMG.
