Richard Gray, managing director of the LGBT market for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Tourism Bureau: On the blossoming community: "We are growing internally, and the community is growing. Each year, we keep seeing more and more LGBT travelers coming. There are very few resort destinations that boast hundreds and hundreds of LGBT-owned businesses, and the community here is a very big draw."
David Jobin, executive director of Stonewall Museum: On being a place of Pride: "We are opening Pride week to really show the community what our plans are for [the museum]. The fact that we have Stonewall Pride in the dead of summer and fill the streets tells you something."
