GayCities.com, an online travel and destination guide has added Richmond to its roster. The website features a listing of gay & lesbian-friendly bars, clubs, restaurants, shops and hotels.
Here’s what the site has to say about RVA:
Richmond is the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia, one of the most anti-gay states in the nation with a draconian ban on same-sex marriage. Many gays & lesbians and allies avoid the state on their trips through the East, preferring the more hospitable climes of Washington, D.C. Virginia LGBT-ers who tend to head to D.C. as well–or at least Northern Virginia, the liberal ‘burbs of the nation’s capitol.
