LGBT Community? Yes, No?
Not sure which forum to put this in, but would like to get a read on the LGBT community, if any on St Thomas. The last few posts I can find were back in 2005 and 2006. Any comment on what it's like now? Bars, gatherings, etc? From what I can tell as long as it isn't flaunted most places are gay friendly. Any good hangouts? Just curious.
Lots of gay peeps on island. In STT 90% of my friends were gay men. It's a pretty big crowd and FUN! Ha! Always found myself akin to gay men for some reason - I'm a pretty big personality and find they can handle it 😉 I have a pair of besties on STJ that we go visit and they visit us. Although a few of our STT crew moved to FL we still have a fun group in STT and it's always rowdy at our usual spots. I think Stx is also pretty gay friendly, but the scene (gay or straight) is MUCH older. Despite the religiousness here - I've not seen first hand any issues in my circles. Actually on Halloween my 6'3 bestie dresses in hot drag, with 4 inch heels - he looks AMAZING. A few comments that night from morons in red hook but he looked better than 99% of the chicks that night lol. I don't know HOW he does it! I would break my damn leg in those on these roads! We hung with that couple mostly - like 4 nights a week lol, all over STT. Hull bay, red hook and yacht haven mostly. If you're single and cute, you'll make friends quick 😉 if you're a couple and extroverted you'll also find friends quick but ya gotta get out there. IME I made friends WAY faster on STT. Took a couple years to get a good crew here, which we finally have.
