San Francisco on the Cumberland

In 2003 when the Nashville Metro Council was considering a nondiscrimination ordinance, Southern Baptist Convention vice president Bill Merrell predicted passage of the bill could turn Nashville into "the San Francisco of the Southeast."

Apparently it can happen without passage of a nondiscrimination ordinance. Out & About Newspaper is reporting that Nashville has been named by the PlanetOut to the "Most Surprising Gay-Friendly Destinations." As well as the city's inherent features, the article names the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau as a source of the award. It seems they've been working with the GLBT press quite a bit.
