Nashville: Could it be the next GLBT travel destination?

Nashville: Could it be the next GLBT travel destination? | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Nashville is pretty gay. Even the hit ABC television show Nashville has made closeted-country-star-wannabe Will Lexington a series regular for its second season. It’s fair to say that anytime an area is bolstered by the arts and entertainment industry, music in this case, you can expect the GLBT community to play a significant role in the area’s inertia.

Association News

Association News | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

I became a member of IGLTA in 2008 and participated in my first Annual Global Convention in Toronto in 2009. I have attended all IGLTA conventions since. My real involvement with the association started with the IGLTA Symposium in Florianopolis in 2009 and grew when I became the Brazilian Ambassador and then a nominee to the board in 2010 and 2011. I was elected to a two-year board term in 2012. Because I am a small-business owner, lesbian and a non-North-American member, my focus on the board has always involved these sectors of the membership.

New York, New York | Daily Xtra

New York, New York | Daily Xtra | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
It’s a hell of a town — and perhaps the world capital of 'gay' - Most gay people, men especially, eventually end up in New York City, and with good reason. As the preeminent global centre of art, culture and commerce, The Big Apple has also emerged as perhaps the world capital of gay. Between the dazzle of Broadway, the old-school Hollywood romance of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Manhattan’s star turn as the fifth lady of Sex and the City, New York City is virtually welded into every gay man’s DNA, no matter where he’s from.
