Nestled within the vibrant hues of Gay Pride colors, our "Florida Is Pretty Gay" pin back buttons make a bold statement, capturing the essence of Florida's diverse and inclusive community of people. The words gracefully float to the left of the state, echoing the sentiments of a community that proudly embraces its LGBTQ+ identity. In a recent historic move, a South Florida town has led the charge by officially declaring itself an LGBTQ+ sanctuary city. This declaration, unanimously approved during a Lake Worth Beach city commission meeting, signifies a pivotal step towards creating safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community.

Concerns voiced by parents, educators, and students spurred this decision, responding to legislation impacting LGBTQ+ individuals. Lake Worth Beach Mayor Betty Resch, committed to supporting LGBTQ+ residents, emphasized the importance of unity in making a bold, public statement. Julie Seaver, Executive Director of Compass LGBTQ+ Community Center, highlighted the significance of the resolution, solidifying the city's stance as a safe haven for all residents.

While South Florida is acknowledged for its liberal outlook, the need for safe spaces within the LGBTQ+ community persists. Despite hosting Palm Beach Pride and thriving LGBTQ-owned businesses, incidents have underscored the importance of creating environments where everyone can feel secure. In the face of what's described as anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, advocates in Tallahassee echo the sentiment, pushing for similar declarations at the state level.

As this movement gains momentum, our "Florida Is Pretty Gay" pin back buttons stand not just as accessories but as symbols of a community that celebrates diversity, inclusion, and resilience. Wear your support proudly and join the chorus welcoming all to a Florida that is, indeed, pretty gay. 

We can't forget that Florida is also home to the second gayest city in the United States, Wilton Manors. As the second gayest city in America, Wilton Manors stands as a vibrant hub for the LGBTQ community in Florida. The city has witnessed a blossoming of Gay and Lesbian establishments, including the iconic Pride Center—a haven hosting "safe-space" meetings, activities, and support for the LGBTQ community. The annual Stonewall Pride Festival and Parade, drawing a yearly crowd of 30,000, and the expanded Stonewall National Museum — Wilton Manors Gallery, further contribute to the city's rich tapestry of LGBTQ-focused cultural institutions. Wilton Drive, with its curving sweep, serves as the canvas for a display of establishments with cleverly named locales, proudly adorned with rainbow flags.

It's a place where assumptions about one's sexual orientation often need a reality check, as even "breeders" are treated with equality. Wilton Manors' compact and walkable layout, coupled with its safety, makes it an ideal community. Residents and visitors alike revel in its diverse array of restaurants, bars, and shops along the main thoroughfare. So, Florida is pretty gay after all.
