Berlin mayor pushes gay tourism

Berlin's openly gay mayor, Klaus Wowereit, told attendees at the International Tourism Exchange Fair in Berlin that the city is an ideal destination for gay and lesbian tourists, Agence-France Presse reports. The mayor also called for more advertising to attract such tourists. "There is a huge market gap to be filled," Wowereit said at a Monday press conference during the fair. The German Headquarters for Tourism introduced the new travel guide "Gay-friendly Germany," which is targeted at Americans, on Monday as well.
