Since the mid-90s there has been increased interest in the phenomenon of gay tourism. Researchers are examining the range of cultural, social, psychological and health issues that are affecting men and lesbians on their travels. This, the first book on the subject, defines gay tourism and is a benchmark for future research on this very important and often misrepresented market. Contributors include Martin Cox, Mark Graham, Howard Hughes, Matthew Link, Claudia Miller, Thomas Roth, Douglas Sanders, Richard Scholey, Michael Stuber and Philip Want.
