Who knew? Cleveland is about to become a major gay stomping ground. After much effort, the city won the bid to host the 2014 Gay Games (GayGames.com). “We see this as a springboard,” says Sharon Kobayashi, vice president of the tourism group Positively Cleveland. “We hope to make Cleveland a gay destination.” Things are changing quickly here: The city council added protections for transgender people to Cleveland’s antidiscrimination laws in housing and employment, and there’s a country line-dancing group, the Rainbow Wranglers (RainbowWranglers.org), which meets every Thursday at the Mean Bull.
