LGBT Tourists, Smaller Pod Hotels and Spirit Goes Bold

    South Africa has postponed the implementation of two tighter regulations on travel for children after the tourism industry raised concerns, the department of home affairs said on Tuesday.

The controversial new rules, which require children to carry a birth certificate and a letter of permission from their parents in order to travel, were due to come into effect on Oct. 1 but have now been postponed to June 1, 2015.

The rules make up part of a new immigration law which came into effect on May 26. It included requirements that children carry their own passports, applications for new visas be made in home countries and biometric information be submitted in person.
The organization, known as Richmond Region Tourism, is declaring that Richmond, Va., is “coming out” as a city where L.G.B.T. tourists will feel comfortable. A campaign that began this month includes a microsite, or special website, with the address RichmondIsOut.com; print advertisements; banner ads online; a blog; a video clip; a presence in social media that include Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; and stickers for the windows of stores, shops and businesses that read “OutRVA,” a nod to residents’ name for the city, “RVA.”

The campaign is timed partly to coincide with the 2014 edition of Pridefest, put on each year by Virginia Pride. The event is to be held on Sept. 27 on Brown’s Island, on the James River in Richmond.
