Company introduces first-ever localized LGBTQ travel safety ratings.

BOULDER, COLO. – GeoSure, the global leader in providing real-time, hyper-local safety information for business and leisure travelers, officially launched the first-ever neighborhood-level LGBTQ Safety ratings category on its award-winning smartphone app. LGBTQ travelers will – for the first time – have unlimited access to real-time safety ratings on more than 30,000 neighborhoods worldwide. GeoSure is available on the App Store and Google Play. GeoSure defines their LGBTQ Safety category as rating "Likelihood of harm or discrimination against LGBTQ persons or groups and level of caution required at location."

GeoSure also announced the "Top 5 Safest Global Urban Neighborhoods for LGBTQ Travelers." GeoSure's easy-to-use interface provides safety ratings ranging from 1-100 – the lower the score, the safer the neighborhood. Utilizing machine learning, AI, sentiment analysis and predictive analytics, GeoSure compiles ratings based on analysis of thousands of sources daily to provide and continuously update its suite of comprehensive travel safety solutions.
