This is a very exciting week for the gay community in Central Florida. Parliament House Resort in Orlando will be celebrating its 40th anniversary all this week! I can’t wait to see what Don, Susan and the rest of the P-House family have in store. This is the third year in a row I’ve been in attendance for the anniversary weekend and I am always so happy to be there, to see not just the entertainment acts, but all the smiling faces who come out to support a one-of-a-kind business. Congratulations on 40 great years, P-House! Lots of love!
