Baltimore's LGBT hub expands beyond Mount Vernon amid discussions of inclusion, competition

Baltimore's LGBT hub expands beyond Mount Vernon amid discussions of inclusion, competition | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

With the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore's decision to relocate both its office and Pride to Old Goucher, many believe the boundaries have shifted. Some of the issues at play are growing acceptance in the wider community; local LGBT leadership expanding beyond gay white men to women, people of color and the transgender community; and an up-front effort by Old Goucher to become identified as the "gayborhood."

Beyond Proud, LGBT Toronto

Beyond Proud, LGBT Toronto | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

In April of this year, I joined ten US meeting and event planners for a three-day “Men About Town” experience organized by Tourism Toronto. It was my seventh excursion to Toronto since first visiting two decades ago, and most entertaining, and eye-opening, by far.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

My early ventures were of the in-out variety, and not the pleasurable kind, but as a dot.com “executive” somewhat at sea in the role. There were no real touches, just taxis, windowless meeting rooms, corporate hotels, and lobby bars, which did little to disprove Toronto’s then prevailing reputation as an Americanized, corporatized yawn. Or, as the late-actor Peter Ustinov once remarked, “Toronto is a kind of New York operated by the Swiss.”
