On behalf of the City of Orlando, I would like to welcome you to the 2017 Gay Days Orlando. Orlando is a City for everyone. We are known an inclusive City that values equality communities and as the home to one of the nation's largest LGBTQ+
There is no doubt that Orlando is stronger because of our diversity. That’s why after the Pulse tragedy, which deeply impacted our LGBTQ+ and other communities of color, we were able to and continue to, respond to the darkest day in our City’s history with love and compassion.
For those of you who are first time visitors to our area, you will discover that Orlando is rich with opportunities for recreation, cultural entertainment, educational resources and business enterprises. You will also notice that when it comes to service and hospitality, Orlando is second to none.
I hope you enjoy your time in the Orlando area and we hope you plan to visit again soon.
Buddy Dyer Mayor
Have a wonderful Gay Days!
