New York’s tourism industry is cheering the state’s newly approved same-sex marriage legislation, with supporters predicting that thousands of gay couples will bring their wedding parties — and dollars — to New York once the law goes into effect July 24. Mayor Michael Bloomberg will launch “NYC I Do,” a campaign to build on the law’s passage by selling the city as a gay-wedding destination, a spokeswoman for the city’s marketing office told Bloomberg News. The city’s tourism website already includes a Q&A about the new law and highlights hotels advertising gay wedding specials. Among them: Le Parker Meridien, which offers a “Love Has No Boundaries/Born This Way” wedding package, with a ceremony and reception for 100 people for $25,000. www.biggaynews.com
