How Gay Friendly is Las Vegas? This will be our first trip to the city and we are geeked about it. We will be celebrating my partners birthday and I want to splurge as much as possible. I've read on various posts that hotels tend to go out of the way for you if you mention that you are celebrating an occasion birthday, anniversary etc My question is if this courtesy is extended to gay couples as well? Vegas as well as the MGM seems to be welcoming to all regardless, however I would like to get the opinions of those who have had this experience or has some first hand knowledge.
