Southern Pride is our monthly column exploring and celebrating LGBTQ culture in Southern cities. This month we're heading to the Sunshine State to check out the scene in Wilton Manors.
You might have heard of Wilton Manors when it was named the gayest city in America after the 2010 census report. Its location in the Sunshine State and the fact that it’s surrounded by water have also earned Wilton Manors the nickname “Island City,” conjuring images of an escape to paradise. With a perfect MEI score of 100 from the Human Rights Campaign, those images may be more accurate than not for members of the LGBTQ community looking for a truly gay-centric place to live.
