Doina (she/her) & Laetitia (she/her)
Founders of Queer Tours France
During her PhD in History and years of studying Art History, Doina understood the insignificant place left by teachers and books to the LGBTQIA+ community. As a lesbian guide, spreading those stories became increasingly important to her over the years. She started including them in mainstream tours, then created specific itineraries focusing on LGBTQIA+ people in Paris. This was the beginning of Queer Tours France.
Laetitia worked for years in cultural and artistic education for children and teens. She participated at creating and managing projects in cultural centres and schools, especially around music. She has 1000 projects at a time, she wants to become a professional trombonist, travel the world (again!) and explore the beauty and richness of the LGBTQIA+ community. She decided to support Doina in the creation of Queer Tours France by bringing her skills in project engineering, development and partnership.
As queer travelers ourselves, we always appreciated when tours included LGBTQIA+ people and when our guides could recommend us places to hang out. And why not create ourselves the tour company we would like to find anywhere we go?
Meet our Fabulous Team
We are 100% queer and local! We do accept allies in our team (and they have done a lot for this project!), but we are proud to announce that currently all our guides and office members are part of the LGBTQIA+ community! It's our way to put forward their experience and life stories and support the queer community.
Fantastic Guide and Tour Creator
Charlotte has been in a few queer organizations, battling for queer visibility and against LGBTQIA+phobia.
She is passionate about graffiti, street art, Queen Marie-Antoinette and the queer community she likes to call "la famille" (the family).
For Charlotte, creating and leading queer tours is a way to take her battle for queer visibility to her professional life.
