Inside New York City's first gay resort hotel

THE OUT NYC, a 105-room resort hotel for gays, opened in New York City in March. Located in Hell's Kitchen, it has many luxury amenities and is also open to straight people. Reviewing the hotel, The Boston Globe wrote: "It’s not surprising that a hotel dedicated to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender travelers would surface in this metropolis of anything goes. What is surprising is that a straight couple can have so much fun."
