Resumen

Esta investigación tiene el objetivo general de identificar los factores ambientales de la hospitalidad que impul- san los homosexuales entrevistados a vivieren experiencias memorables de consumo en los hoteles y hostales. Se utilizó el enfoque cualitativo de tipo descriptivo. Desde esta perspectiva, gays de dos Estados del Nordeste de Brasil fueron en- trevistados. Los relatos se presentaron a fin de mejorar la formación de categorías. En cuanto a los resultados, se consideró que la experiencia de consumo se almacena como un rendimiento positivo o negativo debido a factores relacionados con la prestación de servicios y la infraestructura. Por lo tanto, se constató que el entorno de servicios de hospitalidad influye en el consumo de los homosexuales entrevistados a punto de hacerla memorable.
