Travel + Leisure A List Travel Agent David Rubin

David Rubin


Rubin has deep connections with LGBTQ-friendly hotels, cruise lines, guides, and drivers, and takes care that his clients feel comfortable and safe at all times. His diligent planning meant that a gay client with disabilities could go gorilla-trekking in Rwanda, thanks to the use of a specially designed chair carried by four men that allowed for close but safe contact with the animals. On a more urban note, he was able to obtain, for clients who were visiting the Milan Design show, access to the key parties and design houses, with private meetings with top designers. Recently, says Rubin, he is planning more trips for multigenerational families with LGBTQ members, especially trans young adults. "We are helping to educate the suppliers we work with and find the right guides, drivers, and security for these clients." In recent years, Rubin has seen a big uptick in destination celebrations and vacations to mark milestone birthdays, and he works overtime to make those trips extra special for all parties.
