    Redefining LGBTQ Travel — A Conversation with Misterbandb Founder, Matthieu Jost

    Redefining LGBTQ Travel — A Conversation with Misterbandb Founder, Matthieu Jost

    Misterb&b, like many great start-up concepts, was born out of necessity. Founder and entrepreneur Matthieu Jost sat down with me for an interview and revealed the upsetting homophobic incident that spurred the idea for his company. 
    In a nutshell, a few years back, Jost and his partner applied as guests at a short-term rental in Barcelona during a trip to Spain. However, they were quickly turned down after the owner realized they were gay. 
    They found new lodging in the Catalan capital, but the experience was still painful and disappointing. It got him thinking about what he could do to ensure LGBTQ travelers could find welcoming accommodations all around the world despite their sexual orientation.

    The ordeal led him to carve out a long-overdue category in the travel industry with his brand emerging as one of the top travel resources for the LGBTQ community.

    Have a listen to my discussion with Matthieu/  Read the interview at Instinct Magazine and book your next great Gaycation through Misterbandb!
