Governor Cuomo announces new "I love NY LGBT" website

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a new "I Love NY LGBT" tourism website on Saturday as lesbian and gay New Yorkers celebrated gay pride weekend.

The state has started a new tourism campaign designed to attract Gay and Lesbian travelers. 

Already a huge week for LGBT community and businesses who serve them so the launch of this new website is just an added bonus. 

In honor of pride week the boys of Flaming Saddles Saloon are showing off their new line dance.

The bar in Hell's Kitchen is among those featured on New York States freshly launched "I love New York LGBT" website in what Governor Cuomo is calling a one-stop portal into all the state has to offer to LGBT tourists. 

Flaming Saddles is already well known in the local LGBT community but bar owners Chris Barnes and Jacqui Squatriglia, a straight married couple, support the efforts to bring in more LGBT tourists. 

The website is part of the state's $60 million dollar tourism campaign. In addition to entertainment and historic landmarks, the site will spotlight LGBT events, resources and a wedding planning guide for same-sex couples who want to tie the knot here. 

The website launched Saturday and will be promoted at Sunday's Gay Pride Parade which of course is the culmination of the historic week.

    Taxis come in yellow, green, black, and now... hot pink? They're called SheTaxis and they are from a cab service for women by women. (The cabs aren't actually pink, but drivers will carry pink pashminas.)The service is coming to New York this week. You could almost think of it as an all-female Uber.
