“Dynamic. Smart. Unexpected. Celebratory.”

Those are words the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau say visitors use to describe the Tar Heel State’s capital city. And, they want LGBT visitors to walk away with the same feelings and excitement.

Marking National LGBT Pride Month, the bureau launched its first LGBT visitors microsite at www.visitraleigh.com/glbt/.

The site offers information and resources listings, including accommodations — a calendar of events, faith communities, nightlife, dining and shopping — to help visitors navigate their way around the capital’s LGBT community.

Visitors can also make reservations through the site, which has partnered with the LGBT-friendly Travelocity.

  1. Thank you for your mention of the Greater Raleigh CVB Raleigh GLBT Visitor Information Guide and for showing the web site page as a photo and further including the web address. For your future information, here in Raleigh most organizations and individuals use the initials GLBT to reference the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. The Greater Raleigh CVB refers to its Web site as the Raleigh GLBT Visitor Information Guide. You might also want to know that the GRCVB has become a member of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA). You might also want to know and mention that the site came aboutthrough a joint working arrangement between Raleigh’s GLBT Community and the senior staff at the GRCVB through a 12 member Raleigh GLBT Citizen Advisory Committee and this working arrangement continues to work toward making Raleigh one of the most interesting travel destinations for GLBT people from around the World. We, GLBT people, do live in a very diverse and progressive City here in Raleigh.
