Boardwalk Nightclub in Fort Lauderdale Florida is a Gay nightclub featuring South Florida's finest male strippers. Frequent appearances by Adult Video Stars give Boardwalk the xxx touch. Lap dances are available in a private area. The dancers are really hot, twinks, boys and men. There are always several dancers cruising the club, giving lap dances. The Adult Video Stars make frequent appearances. The shows are usually hosted with fun drag. Milancita Rodriguez hosts New Meat Wednesdays, a fresh meat stripping competition with cheap drinks and sexy boys.

Wilton Manors (affectionately referred to as WilMa) is a city within the larger city of Fort Lauderdale. Wilton Manors is home to one of America's largest year-round populations of Gay and Lesbian residents. Wilton Manors was the second city in the country (after West Hollywood, California) to elect a Gay-majority city council.

In the past decade downtown Wilton Manors has evolved into a nearly one mile long corridor of Gay and Lesbian owned, shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The main street, Wilton Drive, is closed several times a year for LGBT festivals and events that are sponsored by Mark's List. The larger of the events are Stonewall Street Festival in June and Wicked Manors, a Halloween event that attracts tens of thousands of costumed revelers from all over the world.

Broward County is home to over 4,100 restaurants and over 120 nightclubs (1/3 of them are Gay or Lesbian oriented). Several of the nightclubs are located in downtown Fort Lauderdale's Arts & Entertainment district, but most LGBT establishments are located in Wilton Manors, the "Gayborhood of South Florida."

"I think people are looking at the LGBT community in a different light and we are thrilled that these games will be in the heartland because if we are successful that will send a message," Nobbe told the Akron Roundtable at Quaker Station.

Sitges, Spain: A Gay Euro Classic For Summertime Play

Sitges, Spain: A Gay Euro Classic For Summertime Play | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

Sitges has a year-round population around 20,000, doesn't attract queers alone - in fact, they're greatly outnumbered by straight singles, couples, and families during the summer season. But its gay appeal reaches generations back into history that a century ago attracted the boho likes of Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, and other arty types. From there, not unlike Cape Cod’s Provincetown, by the 70’s and 80’s it’d morphed into a resort that’s not just hetero-popular but also one of Europe’s top gay travel favorites every June-through-September.

Desert hearts - Gay Flagstaff, Arizona

Desert hearts - Gay Flagstaff, Arizona | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

The laid-back, cultured and pine-studded college town of Flagstaff has plenty going for it and makes a terrific base for exploring northern Arizona.

The largest city on Interstate 40 between L.A. and Albuquerque, Flagstaff is known for its seemingly endless supply of inexpensive chain motels and restaurants. Sadly, too many road-tripping visitors never get much beyond the exit ramp before continuing on with their journeys. In fact, this well-kept, historic city of about 66,000 is worth getting to know — it’s renowned for cool, dry summers and snowy but sunny winters, and has enough diversions and attractions to keep you busy for several days.
