Welcome to Gaynesville! Its a small little bubble of liberalism in a sea of southern weirdness. There’s lots of fun to be had here; we’ve got everything from world-class education to the beauty of wild Florida nature, not to mention fresh cooked local meals and dance parties that will knock your socks off. We’ve lived in Gainesville a combined 20 years (Casey’s been here for 5 years, Cori moved here at the ripe old age of 6 and has been out in the queer community for the past 4 years).
We were surprised at how queer friendly Gainesville is for a small southern city. It’s a great place to live, filled with great communities, lots of local music, and plenty of opportunities for artists, students and professionals alike.
Gainesville has a lot of bars and clubs downtown. Only three are official “gay bars” but downtown is very gay friendly for the most part. Here’s an overview of the official gay nights:
There is a great little club down town called the University Club (UC) that has drag performances every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. They also have an amateur drag show on Wednesday nights so if you and your friends work up the nerve, you can stage your very own performance!
