Not 'Finding the gay community'
Your recent article headlined "Finding the Gay Community" unfortunately lacks a truly in-depth picture of the complete local LGBT picture. Beyond only the lesbian point of view, there are other aspects of the male gay community in our area that warrant equal recognition.
For example, the Greater Daytona Beach Business Guild, founded in 1993, promotes businesses, tourism, and nonprofit organizations supportive of LGBT lifestyle and causes. In the past, the 100 plus membership Guild established in Daytona the Beachfest, Gay Spring Break, Gay Film Fest, the annual Christmas party, and ongoing monthly dinners. From that has grown sponsorship of the HIV/AID Coalition of Volusia/Flagler Counties, OneDaytona Scholarship Funds, Gay Pride Picnic, world-wide/national/state/city advertising on behalf of Central Florida as a gay friendly site for vacationers as well as residents and businesses.
