With gay marriage returning to California ABC News reported that within 5 years it’s estimated that marriage equality will bring 500 million dollars to The Golden State. Gay marriage is big business especially in this economy. Now New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the launch of a new “I Love NY LGBT” website, a one-stop tourism portal into all that New York State has to offer LGBT travelers. The website’s launch comes on the heels of the Governor’s pledge to grow tourism & jobs in New York State, including the launch of a new “I Love NY LGBT” initiative. The niche LGBT tourism brings approximately $70 billion in tourism spending in the U.S. every year. Governor Cuomo stated, “As part of our efforts to boost the tourism industry in New York, this pride month, we are launching the “I Love NY LGBT” website to highlight all of what the state has to offer to the LGBT community. New York State has a tremendous variety of ‘must see’ destinations for all travelers of different interests – whether they are wine connoisseurs, history buffs or outdoor adventurers. The website will be an important tool to help attract visitors, encourage spending in our communities and create jobs in the industry. New York has a proud history of welcoming the LGBT community & whether you’re planning a weekend trip or a destination wedding, I encourage all to come explore the Empire State.” With California & New York not only recognizing marriage equality its already in position to make it a fruitful enterprise.
The other 11states where gay marriage is the law should definitely take notice & advantage of this new LGBT windfall.
