#ILoveGay Today - Peter Gamez, CEO of Visit Oakland

Episode Summary

We chat about Peter's history in the travel & hospitality industry, including when we first met when he was an executive at Joie de Vivre hotels, an LGBTQ-friendly hotel chain based in San Francisco. We chat about his new role as CEO of Visit Oakland, a region just east of San Francisco that is amazingly LGBTQ-friendly, with a variety of nightclubs and bars in the Uptown neighborhood and now spread out throughout the city. We also chat about Oakland Pride, as well as their thriving art scene. This week is Oakland's Restaurant Week, and all throughout the year their culinary scene is bustling, including a new Vegan Trail program they've put together for 2022.
