WILTON MANORS, FLORIDA – THE EPICENTER OF GAY LIFE
RESIDENTIAL GAY POPULATION EXPLODING WITH HELP OF GARY LANHAM GROUP
By: Gary Lanham
Wilton Manors is known in Florida as the Island City, but throughout the world it is called South Florida’s hot spot for the flourishing gay population. The strip, Wilton Drive, is lined with gay bars, restaurants, and an unparalleled nightlife. It is indeed the epicenter of gay life.
EPICENTER OF GAY LIFE - SITUATED IN SUNNY SOUTH FLORIDA
Wilton Manors is a small city surrounded by Fort Lauderdale in South Florida. It’s well known that South Florida is one of the most beautiful, sunny areas to live in the world. People come from all over to make this location their home. The warm climate, the beaches, and the environment create a compelling reason to move. Wilton Drive is located just two miles north of downtown Fort Lauderdale, just minutes from the beach.
BUSINESSES & RESIDENTS EMBRACE GAY LIFESTYLE
Wilton Drive is the equivalent of a "Main Street". Over the past twenty years, the Wilton Drive corridor has undergone an economic transformation. Formerly a sleepy street lined with small retail shops, Wilton Drive is now the small city's Arts & Entertainment District. Home to numerous restaurants, bars, shops, condos and rental developments the area blossomed over the last decade. Many of the businesses in the Arts & Entertainment District are LGBT-owned and/or operated. "The Drive" has become a local, regional, and national destination for LGBT tourism. Wilton Manors has become the “go to” place for business owners and residents seeking a gay lifestyle. Same-sex marriage has been legally recognized in Florida since January 6th of this year.
WILTON MANORS HAS THE SECOND GAY-MAJORITY GOVERNING BODY IN THE UNITED STATES.
There has been a strong gay presence on the City Commission since the late 1980s when the City of Wilton Manors had the distinction of electing Broward County’s first openly gay elected official, Jim Stork, in 1988. By the year 2000, the City of Wilton Manors had made history as having the second gay-majority governing body in the United States. This included a gay Mayor, Gary Resnick; Vice Mayor, Scott Newton; and Commissioners Julie Carson, Justin Flippen, and Tom Green, all strong allies of LGBT rights.
