Fort Lauderdale Gets "Bump" in Gay Tourism
Bump! is the name of a television series on Logo -- MTV's gay channel. It scopes out tourist destinations for gay travelers, and this past week, it tackled Fort Lauderdale.
That link lets you watch the whole episode. The camera crew makes stops in the gay-themed resorts like the Royal Palms, whose management tells of overcoming Fort Lauderdale officials leery about a "flophouse" after it opened in 1991. The Inn Leather also gets to talk about how its rooms each come with a leather swing and that it's popular among far-flung conservative types looking to shed their inhibitions for a weekend. Unfortunately, no sign of Larry Craig in that segment of the video.
