Georgia’s Tybee Island holds inaugural gay event

Located just a half-hour drive from Savannah, Georgia’s Tybee Island is gay-welcoming, but has not developed a reputation as a “gay destination.” That might change with the island’s first Tybee Gay Days.

Being held May 3 to 5, Tybee Gay Days will included evening parties, a brunch and an afternoon tea dance. In addition, there will be scheduled times for participants to meet-up and enjoy the island’s beautiful beaches.

The weekend’s activities are being organzied by, an online magazine and business directory for the LGBT community in and around Savannah.
