Celebrate your fabulousness by embarking on the new Gay and Lesbian Walking Tour of South Beach, a collaborative effort between the Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, Miami Design Preservation League, and the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. The tour visits key spots that mark the contributions that lesbians and gay men have made to Miami Beach over the years. Stops on the tour will include the Palace Bar (home of Sunday drag shows), Casa Casuarina (known as the Gianni Versace house), MDPL's Art Deco Welcome Center (MDPL was founded by a collaboration between Barbara Baer Capitman, a straight woman, and Leonard Horowitz, an openly gay man), the Breakwater Hotel where Bruce Weber shot a photograph that was used in a famous advertisement for Calvin Kein Obsession, and many more locations significant in the history of gay and lesbian people in Miami Beach. The Gay and Lesbian Tour of South Beach takes place every fourth Friday of the month.
