Vacationer Magazine: GOC nears it’s 50th anniversary of breaking stereotytpes

Thank you to Vacationer Magazine and to GOC's David Millar for this fabulous article GOC nears it's 50th anniversary of breaking stereotytpes.

As Ellie Sivins write:

"Historically, outdoor activities such as hiking, walking, and climbing have often been dominated by cisgender, heterosexual individuals, which has led to a lack of representation in outdoor activities for the LGBTQI+ community. With instances of homophobia and sexism on trails across the world, those in the community may have been deterred from their favorite hobbies. But for the past 50 years, the Gay Outdoor Club (GOC) has created a welcoming LGBTQI+ club for people across the UK, where like-minded individuals can embark on a trek in a safe, welcoming environment."
