Beaches, Bars, Bodies
Miami Beach, South Beach, SoBe, or however you choose to call it is a major gay getaway, with a number of gay establishments around its
famous Lincoln Road and Collins Avenue. Everything is thankfully within walking distance, with the gay beach running parallel to Collins.
Perhaps the best part of coming here is for a trip to Key West, arguably even gayer. It's the southernmost point in the U.S. with a
strong gay community which is a major player in the annual Fantasy Fest every October.
Winter is actually a great time for a visit, as temperatures are still warm and you can always stay at the
Island House Men Only Resort,
and the ladies can always go on the
Lesbian Champagne Sunset Cruise.
This is the place for a late afternoon or early evening drink. Gays make up a large percentage of the mix of people who fill the place. The staff also seems to be pretty gay, serving Asian or Mediterranean dishes throughout the day and drinks in the later hours.
Da Leo Tratorria
Sit outside and enjoy the sun and Tuscan/Italian specialties at this very gay-friendly hotspot right on Lincoln Road.
There isn't a major lesbian club in Miami, but there are a few fun night time parties for the ladies. To find out where they're at, check out the Icandee Productions and Pandora and Ultra Events websites.
