The vast majority of LGBT Events held on Miami Beach receive funding from the Miami Beach Visitor & Convention Authority which is funded by the collection/remittance of resort taxes. Most of the short-term rental companies doing business in Miami Beach (including AirBnB) do not collect/remit such taxes. Additionally, the City of Miami Beach restricts short-term rental permits to very few areas in the city. No single family homes are eligible. Almost all condos are not permitted for short-term rental licenses. If the City of Miami Beach finds out you are staying in such a property, you can be evicted. We ask that when making your travel plans for the World OutGames Miami 2017, you consider staying at one of our host properties or at one of the incredible hotel properties which support our community.
