Why the Bollywood weekend?
Lords Founder, Brian Gorman, says, "South Asians in the LGBT community have incredibly unique stories and experiences. At Lords, we want to celebrate them and their culture in a welcoming and inclusive environment - and throw a great party while we’re at it!"
For a sub-culture newly finding its voice, Mumbai to Miami is the first destination gathering for Queer South Asians looking to network within their own community on a social level.
Mumbai to Miami organizing partner Rohan Sheth, sees Mumbai to Miami as an opportunity for gay South Asians from around the globe to meet in a safe, informal setting: "This is the first time Queer South Asians have the opportunity to meet offline in a social, slightly debaucherous, atmosphere. But while we will party hard, we’re also creating opportunities to network, share experiences and connect."
Appropriately oriented and situated in the heart of South Beach on Collins Avenue, Lords South Beach is the first gay hotel brand to open in the US and the vanguard for the modern gay boutique hotel. Sexy, chic, affordable, and fun, it has raised the bar for what the discerning gay traveler can expect from a hotel.

Community is also important to Lords; the Rooms That Matter initiative includes five designated rooms for which 10% of room sale proceeds are donated to charities that provide support for those in the LGBT community.
