Published Date Author: , September 29th, 2011

Gay Miami Beach TravelMiami Beach, for years the destination of choice for LGBT travelers looking for a community that welcomes them without reservation, is going the extra step this fall in reaching out to LGBT visitors. The Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (MDGLCC) and the LGBT Visitor Center on Miami Beach are announcing the launch of the Pink Flamingo Hospitality Program on September 28th.

The Pink Flamingo Hospitality Program will be conducted by MDGLCC partner, YES Institute, the industry source for knowledge on gender and orientation. YES institute will provide one-hour educational workshops for hoteliers that address fears and misinformation that lead to discrimination by using a unique discussion method designed to turn “us vs. them” into just “us,” so no one is seen as an outsider.

“The goal of this program is to let our gay travelers feel just like any other tourists who stay on the beach,” said Steve Adkins, president, Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. “We don’t just want them to feel welcome, we want them to feel like they can act the way they do when at home.”
