New London, Connecticut Becoming a Gay Mecca

New London, ConnecticutPacked into this picturesque, pocket-sized seaport are three colleges, a slew of historic sites and a bustling, red-brick train station. Yet beyond the gleam of the Thames River lies a struggling Northeastern city.

For a time, the pitch to remake New London revolved around visions of upscale condos, a five-star hotel and an influx of tourists, with the goal of creating a smaller, scrappier version of Newport, R.I. But that image fizzled, and now this coastal city is embarking on a new revitalization strategy, one that is built on drag brunches, gay bars and pride celebrations.

Call it Provincetown on the Thames.
