The secret’s out. Nashville’s a magnet for all who love music, sports, great food and, of course, the ABC hit musical drama that shares the city’s name. Less known is Music City’s potential to draw even more of a coveted niche group of visitors – lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender travelers.

Though Nashville Conventions and Visitors Corporation has made no specific aim at the gay traveling market, Out Traveler, an online magazine on gay travel, has already caught wind of the city’s growing “it” factor and spotlighted Nashville in the Out Traveler’s destination guide.
