Gay Fort Lauderdale

Go luxe. Go fab. Go all OUT in Gay Fort Lauderdale. Bask in the warm welcomes and a beach chic vibe. Experience a rainbow of activities to enjoy while visiting.  

Gay travelers can decide between kicking back in flip flops, relaxing on blue wave beaches; slipping on your dancing shoes and busting a move at one of the dozens of gay clubs, or just chilling on a cruise down the yacht-lined waterways.

Fort Lauderdale Gay Scene

With more than 30 gay guesthouses and 150 gay-owned establishments including hotels, bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as five gay and lesbian publications and the largest Metropolitan Community Church congregation in the US, it is pretty clear that the gay scene in Fort Lauderdale is fully operational.

It is also pretty obvious why this is a popular destination for gay and lesbian travelers. There are a multitude of gay-owned and operated establishments located in Wilton Manors, a bustling hotspot for residents and visitors, often referred to as the heart of the gay scene.

Sebastian Street is one of the gay scene’s hotspots and it is where boys and girls in the gay community - locals and travelers - come to bask in the sun. It is the place to see and be seen. The area, named for the popular gay beach nearby, is home to swanky hotels and a number of gay bed and breakfasts. A 15-minute drive from Sebastian Street Beach will bring you to Wilton Manors.

There are also a number of hotspots for the gay scene outside of those two neighborhoods. You can find a full-time bear bar, a gay movie house and a shop offering leather, bondage and fetish accessories Downtown.

Gay-Friendly Dining

The in-hotel restaurants of the Lauderdale Luxe Collection are beyond superb, but your epicurean adventure doesn’t have to end there. Gay-owned restaurants like Hi-Life Café with Chef Carlos of “Top Chef” Rosie’s Bar & Grill, and Galanga Thai Kitchen & Sushi Bar are among the thousands of culinary destinations in Greater Fort Lauderdale. Fun and flavor is the common denominator of this dining scene, where foodies can relax indoors with music or watch the scenery float by dining alfresco along the waterfront. Whatever floats your boat.
