Gay Long Beach and Orange County


A unique seaside community full of arts, entertainment, great food and shopping, Long Beach is a surprisingly large gay hub. The modern gay can enjoy a tour of stay on the famous haunted and suitably named Queen Mary, nosh on tasty California cuisine, toast to life with evening libations, or absorb a little marine culture at the Long Beach Aquarium. Though there are bars and restaurants that cater to the queer crowd, most of Long Beach is as gay-friendly as it is sunny.
