Gay Wilton Manors / Oakland Park

Wilton Manors and Oakland Park as shown in the map below are two “sister cities” that are home to a strong and vibrant Gay / LGBT community.

Once Wilton Manors was “the” gay destination but this has now spilled over into Oakland Park and both cities now are home to many gay/gay friendly business and entertainment/dining options.

Both cities also host and coordinate Gay and LGBT events including the popular Gay Pride Festival.

The two cities enjoy a great location – close to downtown Fort Lauderdale and the famous gay beach – Sebastian Beach.

They are both approx 20-30 minutes drive from Ft Lauderdale Airport.
