Gay in the city

Jerry Falwell probably wishes that Florida would be washed out to sea, but probably not for most of the reasons I catalog here (for my amusement, mostly). No, most likely it's because a Florida city has the gall to court gay travellers. But Fort Lauderdale gets the last laugh. They've managed to weather the recession better than their neighbors. But if this report and book by Florida is to be believed, they should be trying to get gay people to stay! (Includes a chart claiming Washington DC, is more creative than New York City). Though Rob Walker questions whether Detroit or New Orleans can simply turn their fortunes around by just opening up a few leather-and-chain bars and a few rock joints.

Yes, it's free association day at this journal.
