Why So Many Gays Live in Ft. Lauderdale

Gay Fort LauderdaleWell there’s a reason this sunny beach city is Florida’s gay capital, she’s filled with queers! As one of the first areas to legalize protection from discrimination based on sexual orientation, Broward County was also the first school district to support LGBT History Month this past October.

Outside the legal wins and historical moments, Fort Lauderdale’s suburb counterpart, Wilton Manors, was named the No. 2 city with the largest percent of same-sex couples–with about 140 per every 1,000.

There also are more than 200 gay-owned hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants, and shops in the Greater Fort Lauderdale, among other establishments, and the main gay streets, like Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors, are filled with rainbow flags and couples holding hands as they shop at places like Gay Mart or eat out at Gaysha sushi.
