It has been nearly two years since Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe announced the creation of a LGBT Tourism Task Force — and now it has finally done something.
Yesterday, Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC) announced the launch of its first statewide LGBT tourism marketing initiative, including a new landing page for LGBT travelers and Virginia is for Lovers PRIDE merchandise. The announcement precedes this weekend’s Virginia Pride Festival, where Virginia is for Lovers PRIDE merchandise and a signature LOVEwork will be unveiled.
“Virginia is proud to be an open and welcoming destination for every visitor attracted by our scenic mountains and beaches, as well as our world-renowned restaurants, wineries and breweries,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “I am pleased the Virginia Tourism Corporation has created this landing page to connect travelers with inclusive, LGBT-friendly establishments across the Commonwealth. Virginia is truly for lovers, and we hope you have an unforgettable experience visiting the greatest state in the greatest nation on Earth!”
