Celebrating the 10th anniversary of its award-winning "Philadelphia Get Your History Straight and Your Nightlife Gay" campaign, the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC) has released its second commercial geared to the LGBT traveler.

The "Miss Richfield's Selfie Tour of Philadelphia" spot stars Miss Richfield 1981, a drag performer who, when not performing across the country, splits her time between Provincetown and the City of Brotherly Love. The patriotic queen can seen visiting Philly's most sacred spots, like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the "Rocky steps" at the city's fantastic Philadelphia Museum of Art. "Yo, Adrian!"

"Ten years ago, Philadelphia was proud to officially 'come out' as a gay-friendly destination when we invited LGBT travelers to visit," says Meryl Levitz, president and CEO of GPTMC. "With our new commercial, we're going beyond our history roots and reiterating our invitation, celebrating both the city's evolution into a premier destination and the LGBT community's progress over the last decade."
