Virginia Governor Promotes ‘LGBT’ Tourism

Governor Terri McAuliffe (D) announced on Monday Virginia’s first Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) tourism campaign. The campaign is designed to showcase the state of Virginia as “gay-friendly.” The theme of the campaign is to promote “equality” in the state. In a speech to a crowd of tourism professionals, McAuliffe said, “We have an opportunity to build upon the progress Virginia made this year in achieving marriage equality and ensure that visitors across the globe know that the commonwealth is open and welcoming to all.”
