Massachusetts Launches LGBT Tourism Microsite

The Massachusetts Office of the Travel and Tourism has announced the launch of its new web site dedicated to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender travelers. The site was launched to attract and welcome incoming visitation from the LGBT market segment and is a continued affirmation that Massachusetts is a welcoming destination to everyone.

Massachusetts is open and welcoming to all visitors and the acceptance of same-sex marriage is ample proof,” said Besty Wall, executive director of The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism.

“In 2004, Massachusetts was the first state to legalize same-sex marriage and is currently one of only two states to extend marriage privileges to same-sex couples. Marriage information is available on the site, as well as extensive information on events and activities, destinations and travel information that may interest the LGBT traveler.”

According to Community Marketing, Inc. (a San Francisco LGBT market research firm), $70 billion was spent in the U.S. by LGBT travelers.
