Road Scholar Launches LGBT-Themed Learning Adventures

The Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and their families, friends and allies around the world have worked hard for decades to achieve equal treatment under the law and basic civil and human rights in society. June is LGBT Pride Month, when the world will come together to promote gay pride with parades, marches and recognition of the impact the LGBT community has made on the world. Road Scholar, the not-for-profit world leader in educational travel for adults, is offering two new learning adventures in London that explore the influence of gays in the arts as well as how England celebrates gay pride.

"Road Scholar has created two important learning adventures that explore how members of the LGBT community have contributed to our culture and to society at large," said James Moses, President and CEO of Road Scholar. "Participants will learn from renowned experts about events that changed history and impact the lives of millions of people."

In particular, this program will explore London’s prominent arts scene at galleries, theaters and museums from the unique perspective of the LGBT community.
