In 2023, Airbnb released a report outlining the top cities with the most LGBTQ+ inclusive language used by their hosts. Creating a safe space for all travelers is essential, especially when navigating accommodations in countries that aren’t as devoted to protecting the rights of LGBTQ+ people as Canada.


LGBTQ+ inclusive language allows for guests to feel welcome, seen and safe. On this list, Airbnb reported the best in this category, with one Canadian city making into the top five! Read on to find out which city made the list.

What is LGBTQ+ Affirming Language?

LGBTQ+ inclusive language is a way to let queer travelers know they are welcome in any given space. Inclusive language is recognizing the diverse range of bodies, genders and identities of LGBTQ+ people. By encouraging this type of language, hosts are able to create safe environments for all of their guests. In tandem, this is a positive way to foster a better relationship with diverse groups of people beyond the scope of the LGBTQ+ community.
