On Thursday April 30, 2009, I stopped by 450 West 31st Street in Manhattan and headed up to the 12th floor for the vacation-dream-inducing Gay and Lesbian Travel Expo sponsored by HX Magazine. (Click the link for the dates when this show comes to your town.) There were gorgeous men from Argentina and Greece and Spain and Berlin all saying the same thing in romantic accents: "I hope to see you when you come to visit us", and making me believe that they really meant those words for me alone.

I caught up with George T. Neary, Associate Vice President, Culture and Tourism, Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau. George had number of reasons why now is a great time to come on down.

Video after the jump, and for those who are hearing impaired, in a hushed workplace or using devices that do not support video, everything mentioned by George in the course of our interview may be found by going to MiamiandBeaches.com
