GAY KEY WEST
The Duchess and Lulu are fans of Gay Key West. Although we live Across The Pond in Sunny Sussex we visit Key West on a regular basis and in many ways regard it as home away from home.
What makes Key West so special. The sunshine yes, the island and its fine architecture and tropical landscape certainly, but most of all it is the people. We have never found a community so open and caring as the folks of Key West.
Having visited Key West for over 25 years it was the openness and acceptance of gay people that first attracted us to this Island Paradise. In those days there were very few places in the world where gay people were so widely accepted.
Old town was full of gay guesthouse, most of these have sadly disappeared, but some have survived and still cater for discerning guests from near and far. Bars and Clubs of the time included "Numbers" and "The Copa" all long since disappeared. 801 was and still is part of the Gay Key West Scene.
