The Big Gay Podcast from Puglia | Meet Travel Influencer Louis Lafata
Louis explains how wolfyy came about and his journey from a professional background in civil engineering and real estate development to gay travel blogger.
“Now more than ever, LGBTQ+ travelers these days are seeking personalized information and local tips to make their journeys easier... They want to ensure they’ll get an authentic experience in places that are well-known”

We also discuss why Louis wanted a wolfyy guide to Puglia. When the pandemic struck Louis had to put his travels on hold (he was in South Africa) and head home before he was able to return to Italy, a favourite destination, and visit Puglia.
Nevertheless he wanted to introduce Puglia to wolfyy’s readers. For many North American gay travelers Puglia is still a lesser-known destination even although it is recognised as one of Europe’s top 5 gay destinations for LGBTQ+ travelers.
We were thrilled to collaborate with wolfyy, especially as it is the first time that Louis has included a guide to a destination that he hasn’t yet visited: if you are planning on travelling around Italy you should check out his guides.
This episode was recorded before Puglia moved from the covid-19 high risk red zone into the medium risk orange zone.
