Pride Month and the Impact of the LGBT Community

prideMonthFor decades, the month of June has been unofficially recognized as Pride Month for the LGBT community around the world. It is as much a celebration of the community as it is a reminder of the importance of protecting the community rights. Traditionally, Miami Beach has been very LGBT friendly, welcoming visitors and denizens from around the world. With Pride Month in full swing, it’s a perfect time to take a look at how the community has positively affected the economy.

Not many people know that the LGBT community is responsible for contributing over $1 billion to Miami-Dade County’s economy per the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the county continues to strongly advertise to LGBT travelers. Z Ocean Hotel South Beach is one of the many Miami Beach hotels that strongly supports and welcomes its LGBT guests.

Moreover, during the past three years same sex marriages have contributed just over $180 million to Florida’s economy according to a report released by the Williams Institute at the University of California – Los Angeles School of Law. Expenses on weddings and tourism are among the major contributing factors.

The above figures show that each year, the LGBT community continues to become an important part of South Florida’s tourism. If you’re planning on touring Miami Beach during Pride Month, we would love to have you as our guest. Book a stay at our all-suite South Beach hotel by calling 1.877.688.4232 and celebrate with us!
