SAN DIEGO -- GayTravel.com has selected Bryan Kosarek of Austin, Texas as its Season 2 GayTravel Guru.
Kosarek made it through the grueling online competition where hundreds of applicants -- including several leading candidates from San Diego -- hoped that they would be selected for the job, which provides the "guru" with a stipend to travel the world over the next year.
Raised in Chicago, Kosarek says he loves living in Texas. He works as a real estate broker and publishes a website GayinAustinTexas.com. In his campaign to become the next GayTravel Guru, Kosarek said his goal will always be to build a stronger LGBT travel community and to bring authentic experiences to readers.
"It's been a long, arduous journey for our many applicants over these past few months. A lot of hard work and effort was shown by all our guru contenders, and we would like to give a hearty 'thank you!' to everyone who participated in this season's job search. You've all done a great job, and we thank you," GayTravel.com wrote in its announcement of Kosarek as this year's winner.
"Bryan worked very hard on his journey to become the next Gay Travel Guru, as you can tell from his awesome semi-finalist videos which showcase the editing skills he’ll be using frequently in the months to come."
