FLORIDA: GOP State Legislature Advances Bill To Make “Don’t Say Gay” Law Even More Hateful

WTF!? – Tampa to Host Florida’s 1st LGBTQ+ Tourism Conference

Come for a visit. Stay to have your rights and dignity taken away!

In March 2022, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law the Parental Rights in Education bill, better known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill (the Bill) is one of the most opressive pieces of anti-LGBT legislation in the United States. So of course Tampa, Florida will be home to the inaugural conference for the swastika sunshine state’s LGBTQ+ welcoming destinations, hotels, businesses, nonprofits, Pride organizations, travel influencers and more. Florida OutCoast Convention (FLOCC) will be held August 1-3, 2023 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown.

Via Yahoo News: “Never before has there been a space for Florida’s tourism and LGBTQ leaders to unite, evolve and flourish as one community,” Rachel Covello, publisher of OutCoast, said in a written statement. A digital magazine and Florida travel blog that highlights Florida’s LGBTQ-inclusive destinations and businesses – the convention this August will provide a welcoming space to ‘FLOCC together’ to develop solutions that will strengthen the Florida LGBTQ tourism industry.”

Despite its truly appalling state government, Florida continues to strangely be a top LGBTQ+ destination

The Florida OutCoast Convention will include general and breakout sessions, keynote speakers, entertainment and an exhibit hall. The conference will also feature Flamboyance, a gala celebrating LGBTQ+ tourism accomplishments throughout Florida.  (Which should take about 5 minutes)

  1. Wasn’t something else near Orlando and Disney World available? That would seem at least much more effective than Tampa!?
