Vote for Richmond in the British LGBT Awards!

In 2014, Richmond did something no other Virginia destination has done – RVA came out of the closet with its OutRVA campaign. OutRVA represents more than a marketing campaign; it’s a welcoming way of life. NOW is the time to let the world know how welcoming Richmond and Virginia are to all.

Virginia is truly for ALL lovers!
