The San Diego gay nightlife scene manages that rare balance between being remarkably friendly and also rife with beautiful people—it's pretty much a reflection of this sunny Southern California city. Gay bars have also been pretty stable here over the years, with the most popular hangouts going strong for a couple of decades. Most gay bars are in the trendy Hillcrest neighborhood, just northeast of Balboa Park and a short drive or cab ride from downtown. Several others are in the districts just to the east of Hillcrest: University Heights and Normal Heights. As a largely gay-friendly city, San Diego has a good offering of general mixed night clubs. Although if you're looking for something more LGBT-specific, that's easy to find too.

A website that promotes meeting spots for gay men around the world says Invercargill and Queenstown's spots are mostly in parks with public toilets. The Cruising Gays website claims to have the world's largest listing of gay pubs and clubs, gay cruising areas and gay events. Under the New Zealand section, in which towns and cities throughout the country are listed, Invercargill's gay cruising areas are Donovan Park, Seaward Bush, Queens Park's Feldwick gates and Kew Bush, the website says. Queenstown's gay cruising areas are listed as the downtown indoor mall, Frankton Reserve and Earnslaw Park bathrooms. Neither Invercargill nor Queenstown has gay bars. Invercargill City Council parks manager Robin Pagan said he would prefer it if its city parks were promoted on the internet for other reasons, such as for the general public's enjoyment, but it was not an offence for groups of people to meet at parks. There had probably always been meeting places in the city for gay men but they had altered as facilities changed.

It serves as a perch from which the guards scan their territory, holler through their megaphone and scamper out into the waves on their surf board or wooden paddle boat, something they do every time a beachgoer ventures into the lake.
Gay beaches are a popular vacation destination—and not just for LGBT travelers. And while there are gay-friendly seasides all across the globe, several rise to the top—whether because of their sheer beauty, their unique character or the crowd they draw. Mostly popular with men, it's close to the bars, restaurants and nightclubs of Wilton Manors, as well as a plethora of gay hotels and resorts.
