Miami has had a gay nightlife scene as early as the s. From then on, it would be a rollercoaster of ups and downs, filled with progress, failure, celebrations, and heartbreak in Miami LGBT history, leading to our current status as a gay mecca that attracts more than 1 million LGBT visitors a year. A place with its own chamber of commerce dedicated to the queer community since , and where Art Smith hosted and officiated a mass gay wedding for more than two dozen couples this past February.

Winter Party Miami Miami at Miami / Miami South Beach, international event,
By Andrew Collins. Although it's still a hugely popular destination among gay travelers, and it's the site of such blowout galas each year as the Miami Winter Party in March and the Miami Beach White Party in November, Miami is less the destination for gay cruising and sex than it was in the '80s and '90s—much of that scene has moved just north to Fort Lauderdale. But Miami is still home to one of the longest-running gay bathhouses in the country, and it's home to a pair of beaches with enormously loyal gay followings. In other words, guys on the make will still find some very easy opportunities to meet other guys. It's an especially hot destination among gay men from throughout Latin America, as Miami remains very much a mecca with gay guys from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Panama, and elsewhere in the Caribbean and South America. The city's main sex plex is Club Aqua Miami Coral Way, , which back when it opened in the early s went by the name Body Center.
