LAS VEGAS, Nevada. (FOX5) – This spring, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority launched the How to Be (In Vegas) campaign, highlighting events for the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month in June and throughout the year in the entertainment capital of the world.
“From annual events to amazing entertainment, Las Vegas proudly celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and empowers travelers to host themselves all year round. Destination recently launched a series of digital content, How to be (in Vegas), which explores queer identity, self-acceptance and all that can inspire an incredibly inclusive environment like Las Vegas,” the LVCVA press release said, featuring dozens of options for entertainment, shows, weddings and sporting events. Numerous MGM properties are part of the “Love Out Loud” bar tour, featuring drinks and Pride Month souvenirs.
Eduardo Cordova of The Garden helped launch Temptation Sundays with MGM Resorts, which continued all summer by the pool at The Luxor.
“It’s really important to make Las Vegas a great place because we have a great community here,” Cordova said. “Las Vegas is the best city for LGBT travelers,” he said.
The LVCVA video series features numerous activists and celebrities from the Las Vegas queer community, as well as efforts to promote inclusivity and self-expression.
Las Vegas Pride President Brady McGill told FOX5 that Nevada’s progressive culture and politics make it an attractive place for the LGBTQIA+ community to visit, play and live.
“Nevada really ranks first in progressive laws, really welcoming marital equality rights laws. We are the only state to remove language in our constitution that actually protects LGBT marriage… it helps transfer money for tourism and benefits our community year-round,” he said.
Las Vegas Pride has many events in June and especially in October, with the annual Las Vegas Pride night parade. For more information click here: Las Vegas Pride.
