“As a founding member of the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance, we realized that Atlantic City had not been on the radar screen for the gay and lesbian traveler for quite some time,” says Sieg. “Along with the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority and some business members of our organization, we recognized the need to reach the gay and lesbian traveler and highlight all of the amenities that Atlantic City has to offer. 

“With great shopping, dining, entertainment and spas, it was a natural fit for this untapped market segment. We hope to continue to work together to bring future events to the city that will once again put Atlantic City on the map as a fun, welcoming and safe destination for the LGBT community.”
