Back in April, Airbnb launched Online Experiences, the virtual version of the platform’s popular Experiences. Now as summer approaches and it becomes clear that most of probably won’t be traveling too far in the upcoming months, Airbnb has created a new lineup of virtual experiences to help keep us entertained at home.

The company released a statement today detailing its new adventures, which include a colorful lineup of LGBTQ+ led experiences for Pride month. Users can choose experiences like the LGBTQ Culture & Nightlife Experience, which is based in London, costs $4 a person, and is led by TikTok star @moonlight_experiences. “It won’t be a night in without getting mesmerized by meeting talented activists or drag queens, drag kings who make our community special,” the description reads. More of a poet? Jo from Oregon is hosting a queer poetry workshop to help you hone your craft. And if you’re looking to share some secrets over sangria, you can take a live cocktail making class with some fabulous Drag Queens in Portugal for $35.

Airbnb has also partnered with The Actors Fund to offer artists in the United States the chance to not only curate enjoyable interactive experiences for users at home, but to generate a stream of income as the industry remains shut down. For $25, you can learn how to master improv with Carl in New York, or for $16 you can hang with Matthew, also NY-based, and is an Emmy Award-winning medical clown who swallows swords.

Meanwhile, partnerships with the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee will bring some action-packed programming into your home. Starting in July, you can do a $12 workout class with Sofia, a Paralympian and two-time World champion who struggles with a form of dwarfism known as achondroplasia. Or learn recovery techniques in this $18 experience with Neville, who has represented Canada in three Olympic Games.

Basically, Airbnb is brimming with virtual experiences of all sorts hosted by some of the most talented creatives across the world. You can dive in to Airbnb’s online experience hub here.
