Rubin works closely with his clients to match their lives at home to each destination, sending a doctor to tour obscure medical museums in Italy, or connecting LGBTQ travelers with allies and members of the community around the world.

Rubin knows the best gay-friendly hotels, cruises, and guides, and has recently been called upon by parents of LGBTQ children for help with family travel. "We love that the parents are so focused on everyone in the family being safe, comfortable, and excited about the trips," Rubin says. "This has been especially important in addressing the needs of Transgender children (minor and adult) for both domestic and international travel, including non-Western destinations."

Lately, he is seeing renewed interest in Israel, Patagonia, Portugal, and Scandinavia.
