What's Life Like on the Road When Traveling with Kids? (With 2TravelDads)

Many countries' borders are reopening, COVID-19 vaccines are rolling out for kids, whether you're staying domestic or going international, thousands of families already have travel plans for Spring Break 2022.

When it comes to families with same-sex parents, however, finding a vacation spot that is both kid-friendly and LGBTQ+ friendly can often feel like a huge and stressful task.

On this week's episode of Gays With Kids the Podcast, GWK host David Dodge talks to gay dad and travel blogger Rob Taylor of @2traveldads, who said planning travel as a same-sex couple does take some extra thought.

"We talked to other friends who have taken their family internationally, and they, as well as us, are very thoughtful about where they choose to go," Taylor said. "For us, we don't plan trips to places that have laws that will either separate us going through customs, or where if we give each other a kiss in public, somebody could choose to report something and put us in either trouble, or danger."


Rob also discusses how he and his husband choose when and where to take their kids, how they educate them on the road, and where same-sex couples might feel safe taking their families on their next road trip across the U.S.

Denise Ambrusko-Maida of Travel Brilliant also drops by on this episode to talk about some low-key LGBTQ+ and family-friendly destinations, and to discuss how gay dad families can join together at GWK's 2022 Spring Break Vacation at Universal Resorts in Orlando, Florida.

Families who go on GWK's Spring Break will get to enjoy vacationing together with other gay dad families for three days at the three Universal Resort parks. Find out more about GWK's Spring Break Vacation 2022 here.
