Meg Ten Eyck is an awarding winning LGBT travel blogger who has been recording her adventures since 2012. Meg's background in LGBT advocacy has provided her a unique perspective when discussing LGBT travel around the world. Her travels have taken her to 60+ countries with varying levels of LGBT acceptance and in some cases criminalization of LGBT identities.
Meg's blog Dopes on the Road is widely considered one of the most popular LGBT travel blogs in the world. In 2020 Meg also launched EveryQueer Magazine. EveryQueer Magazine inspires people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender presentations to think differently about the global queer community through a lens of culture and activism. EveryQueer hopes to ultimately build a bridge between queer people across identities and borders.
In 2010 Go Magazine, one of the leading lesbian publications named Meg one of the Leaders of the Pack for her work in LGBT media. Curve Magazine, Diva Magazine, Forbes, The New York Times, and Gay Star News have all cited Meg as one of the leading experts in travel for queer women. In 2019, Meg was invited to serve a two-year term on the board of Belmond in the capacity of LGBT advisory.
