Documentary Video Project
South Florida has always attracted gay travelers.
In decades past Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Key West drew thousands upon thousands of LGBTQ vacationers to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the abundance of bars, restaurants and hotels that welcomed them.
Today, the tiny island city of Wilton Manors
continues that tradition.
In March of 2023 we returned to 'my happy place' to document the remarkable variety of diverse and accepting businesses in Wilton Manors. With a footprint of less than two square miles this gay oasis boasts dozens of retail shops, bars, guest houses and eateries catering to the growing queer community.

ABOUT THE VIDEO:
Originally projected to be an hour in length, it soon became obvious that this would not be adequate to fully represent the local gay scene.
We are currently editing Part One.
We will be returning to Wilton Manors in June to capture more
of this vibrant and colorful slice of paradise.
We want to include as many diverse, colorful and accepting businesses as possible. Shoot us an email with your business name and contact info so we can reach out and schedule some time to capture the spirit of your business in our video.
