An LGBTI tourism task force has been assembled in Louisville, the largest city in the state of Kentucky.
The group, assembled by the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau, met recently to brainstorm ways to draw LGBTI travellers to the destination.
The news follows that from Virginia, where a similar dreamteam has been created to drive queer tourists to the state.
The group is comprised of local LGBTI business and attraction owners, plus members of the Kentuckiana Pride Foundation, according to the Courier-Journal.
The publication also reports that the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau will have a stand at this summer’s Kentuckiana Pride Festival, which takes place on and around the Riverfront Plaza from 19-20 June.
Same-sex marriage is not currently recognised in Kentucky.
