Now LGBTQ2SIA+ travels can feel safe when embarking on a trip thanks to the GeoSure smartphone app. LGBTQ2SIA+ travellers will have unlimited access to safety ratings on more than 30,000 neighbourhoods throughout the world.
This first-ever neighbourhood-level LGBTQ2SIA+ Safety ratings category on a smartphone was launched in November 2018. In addition, the company behind the app defines its LGBTQ2SIA+ Safety category as rating “likelihood of harm or discrimination against LGBTQ2SIA+ persons or groups and level of caution required at location.”
Keeping It Simple
To make everyone’s life easier, the interface on this app is simple to use. We even tested it out ourselves.
The safety ratings range from 1-100. If there’s a lower score, then the neighbourhood is safer.
