New York Times Survey Lists Minneapolis As LGBT Travel Hot Spot
WCCO.com ^ | 5/31/14 | WCCO staff

Posted on 05/31/2014 5:54:17 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo

After Minnesota became one of the first states in the Midwest to legalize same-sex marriage, it became a new travel ‘hot-spot.’

According to the New York Times, Minneapolis is now on the list of “up and coming LGBT” places to visit, especially with the Pride celebration coming up.

New York Times completed the survey after talking with gay and lesbian travel experts.

It estimates the annual economic impact of LGBT travelers to be about $70 billion a year in the United States.

Other cities on the hot spot list include Eureka Springs, Arkansas, the Big Island on Hawaii, and Pittsburgh.

We see these lists of trendy gay places in the MSM from time to time.

And, I seldom see San Francisco, Provincetown, Massachusetts, or Key West, Florida mentioned on these lists. Yet these 3 places are well known as gay magnets.

ROTFL! Sounds like the "openly gay" homosexuals are some big spenders. This is a crock.

...after talking with gay and lesbian travel experts.

I didn't know there was such a thing? KY Travel? Are you kidding me? This is some kind of "openly gay" satire, right?

Must be a satire, if it’s listing Arkansas as a LGBT hot spot. :(

Minneapolis has more off-the-boat Muslims than anywhere else; Somalis.

Go on LGBT Morons, make sure you vacay there and let everyone (especially your cabdriver) know why you are there.

I would like to visit MN because MN, IA, and ND are the only states in which I have never been, excpept for HI and AK. I have been to such a small part of RI that I probably should claim that one either. Same for “Red Hampshire”. But quite a bit of ME and VT.

Eureka Springs is a resort town about 40 miles east of me-gay as all get-out! They’ve lost a lot of business because of that. A lot of people mistakenly show up there during one of their various “Diversity” weekends. I made that mistake not once, but twice!

Isn’t that where Larry Craig had his little incident?

(BTW, he should have used the “speech and debate” clause in his defense — he was on his way to the Capitol to perform his official duties, just changing planes there. Unless there was more to it than we’ve been told.)

I might be wrong, but it seems that I’ve read that Minneapolis had a very large Muslim population.

If true, then this could become a ‘grab the popcorn and watch’ time. Muslims vs. LGBTs.
