Hi, I'm Monse, the founder Tours with Meaning! At 17 a teacher tried to expel me from school because she thought I was a lesbian. Since then, fighting against LGBT+ discrimination has been a focus of my life. That's why I created this LGBT+ Tour, so that together, we can continue celebrating diversity. On this tour, you may meet me or Felipe, my older brother. Hi Everyone! My name is Felipe. I'm a musician by profession, a coach by vocation and a tour guide by passion. Being a guide for the LGBT+ Tour has been a blast as I get meet so many of you and hear your amazing life stories. Keep up the good work and see you soon in Santiago! Review: "This was an exceptional experience. Fascinating to hear about the history of LGBT rights in Chile in the context of the dictatorship and how far things have come since then. Hugely recommended"

In this tour every place you visit will reveal an new aspect of the history of this movement. We will visit Plaza de Armas where in April 1973 the first protest of the movement happened, known as the "March of the Queers". We'll also visit the memorial to Daniel Zamudio where we will remember the events that led to the passing of an Anti-Discrimination Law in 2012, known as Zamudio Law. Visit these and more fascinating places!
In Santiago there's very little crime but pick pocketing is common. During the tour make sure to always be mindful of your belongings, especially your phone, wallet and camera. On weekends, holidays or festive days the company we visit may be closed.
