Description

Episode 24 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: The Parliament House. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 24 focuses on the internationally famous gay resort, the Parliament House Reosrt, located at 410 North Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando, Florida. This podcast includes interviews with two representatives of Parliament House. The building was originally constructed in the early 1930s as The Carolina Moon. In 1965, the site reopened as the Parliament House Lodge of Orlando. After near bankruptcy, the hotel was purchased by Bill Miller and Mike Hodge, who reopened the location as the Parliament House Resort on May 1, 1975. The Parliament House became quite successful and has been christened the largest gay resort in the world.

Abstract

In this podcast, Adam Cohen interviews two representatives from the Parliament House who have lived in Central Florida and worked there practically since it opened, giving us insight into how the GLBT community in Central Florida, and even outside the country, came to see the establishment as a second home. We will see how the creation of a popular gay establishment, in a place not known at the time for its gay community, is a difficult task, and look at its journey to becoming one of Central Florida’s most popular attractions.
