Pink Flamingo Hospitality Program

Scott Bader
A training program for hospitality & tourism aimed at creating welcoming experiences for Miami visitors, residents, employees & families.
The Pink Flamingo Hospitality Program trains and certifies hospitality service professionals on gender and orientation, and gives them tools to respond appropriately to all people, essential for creating environments where all visitors and employees are welcome and Miami businesses thrive. The Pink Flamingo Hospitality Certification Program training program is conducted by MDGLCC’s member and partner, YES Institute, the industry source for knowledge on gender and orientation. YES institute provides one and one half hour educational workshops for hoteliers that address fears and misinformation that leads to discrimination by using a unique discussion method designed to turn “us vs. them” into just “us,” so no one is seen as an outsider. The goal of this program is to let our gay travelers feel just like any other tourists who stay on Greater Miami & the Beaches and promote our truly “LGBT Friendly” hotels.
