About Us

The idea for ellgeeBE began on an island off Panama's Pacific Coast when eight people from seven different countries and various persuasions came together for a long weekend of beach, cooking, lounging, dancing and conversation.

It was one of those ideal holidays that created lifelong bonds through the memories and connections it made, helped along by the backdrop of fine white sands and turquoise waters.

In this digital age that connects people around the world, ellgeeBE provides a travel resource and community to help people to discover destinations and meet like-minded LGBTQ travelers online and en situ. The platform is cultivated by local insight provided by community members who add their own adventures, events and experiences to help build a truly global platform, rich in the diversity of its information and the connections it creates.

The ultimate goal: to create a place for LGBTQs from all over the world to find each other and facilitate meet ups and travel friendships as magical as the Panama weekend getaway, a platform that addresses the needs of individuals, couples and families from A to Z, with particular attention to the LGBTQ.
