Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.
U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Pineapple Point is something very special and more than just your typical gay guest resort. They take impeccable care for the ground (lush!!) and treat each guest like family.
These boys have over 1000 five star reviews and a 5.0 rating for a good reason. They are just that good! If you have any questions about Pineapple Point or any doubt whatsoever about whether you would have a great time staying there, focus on the fact that they have over 1000 five star reviews and maintain a 5.0 rating. Pineapple Point is far and away the most popular and most highly rated clothing optional, gay men’s resort and guest house in South Florida.

Also, the cottage has an amazing, large covered patio completely surrounded by tropical plants and trees. Very private. It feels like you are in the jungle, but really you’re in the center of the property with total privacy. The deluxe rooms far exceed expectations, but if you need a little extra room or just want to really treat yourself and your partner, I would suggest paying just a little more and upgrade to a Suite, Villa or the Cottage. Whatever your choice in room accommodations, you will delighted with the attention paid to each and every detail.
The secret sauce which makes Pineapple Point the most special gay-men’s resort on earth: The owners and team members. The boys at Pineapple Point are simply the best at what they do. The owners, Phil and Judd along with their very excellent General Manager, Scott lead by example from the top.

In the past of I have had issues with customer service at the other gay resorts but not here! The service is top-notch, the grounds are beautiful! All of the reviews you read online are 100% accurate. The Saturday BBQ which is held each week during high season is wonderful with delicious hamburgers and homemade healthy salads. The other guests that this guesthouse attracts are classy and well-mannered. If you are looking for a high end gay experience look no further.

Relax at the on-site spa, which offers massage services, a hair studio, and nail care services. Free WiFi and free private parking are provided to guests. An on-site pool and hot tub are also featured.
A 4-minute walk from Fort Lauderdale Beach, this lively hotel catering to gay men is a mile from both Hugh Taylor Birch State Park and the plantation-style Bonnet House, which dates from the 1920s.

Parking and hot breakfast are complimentary. The outdoor pool has a sundeck and a 1960s vibe. There’s also a luxe spa. Minimum-stay rules may apply.
The Grand Resort and Spa is Fort Lauderdale’s largest and finest gay owned and operated men’s spa-resort that first opened in 1999. With 33 well-appointed rooms and suites, we are located just steps from the beach and convenient to all of Fort Lauderdale’s attractions and nightlife. As Fort Lauderdale’s first gay resort with its own full-service day spa and hair studio, we can offer our guests an experience that is unique and wonderfully indulgent. From a relaxing Swedish massage to a haircut before your night on the town, we can accommodate all your needs right here.
The resort itself is centrally located and very close to the beach, restaurants etc. It’s also just a short uber away to Wilton Manors, where most of the gay scene is. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Fort Lauderdale.
This is a resort near the main strip (a couple of blocks from the old W) – it’s a little north of all the restaurants and things, but everything is still walkable. The room was quite large, with a king size bed, large closet, and kitchenette. The TV was a little small for me, but I’m a media snob, so that’s fine (I wasn’t here to watch TV anyway – lol). The room was much larger than I was expecting, which was a pleasant surprise – everything in the room was excellent.
The resort is very private – since the back area is clothing optional, that would only make sense. That area has a large hot tub and a beautiful fountain. I found the area totally relaxing, and spent much of my time there (I was only there for a few days – next time I’ll go for a longer stay, I think).
The pool area is beautiful – it has a bit of a Palm Springs vibe to it (or maybe vice versa depending on your point of view). Deck chairs surround the pool and there is also a rooftop patio overlooking the pool that has a beautiful view as well.
The people at the resort were all friendly and welcoming – which is incredibly important (at least to me, anyway).
This has got to be the best Gay resort in the States. We go to Palm Springs and wish we had something like this over there. We will definitely be back..but not during a naked week. My Partner would kill me!
he location is convenient. You can walk two blocks to the beach, and ten-minutes walk to a LGBTQ beach. You can bring the chairs and umbrella from the resort with free of charge. The resort is probably 10 to 15 minutes drive to the Wilton Manors area, where you can find many gay bars in the same area. If you want to do bar hopping by the Taxi river, the stop is probably 10-15 mins away by walking distance. The stop is somewhere near the gay beach.
The resort provides happy hour. It lasts for an hour, and it is good. You can have different types of drinks and food on each day. One day, we had margarita and daiquiri; we had wine on the other day.
We had two nights in the Grand Penthouse. the room and balcony are spacious. I highly recommend to book this one if you are looking for a seclusive retreat.
We also stayed two nights in the One bedroom patio suite, I would recommend this one if you are a sociable one. It is down on the ground, where you can walk to the hot tub. We made some friends there.
We had amazing days in that great gay resort in Fort Lauderdale. The resort has amazing friendly staff, that take care about everything you would like to find in your vacation. Not only the property is well taken care of and is clean, also the rooms are cleaned in a way you not often find in 5-star hotels. Nice rooms, with new and big bathrooms. The pool-area as well as the courtyard area invite you for a always relaxing and private chill-out zone. Good breakfast in the morning (hot/cold), gym and the great Spa are on property.
Sad to leave the gorgeous The Grand Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale. It’s a gay man’s paradise!
This is a clothing optional resort for men with 32 rooms. They’ve got a swimming pool, gym, Jacuzzi and fountain area to hang out/lounge by.
Best rooms are the penthouse suites, which have their own private rooftop area with hot tub, and plenty of space for “entertainment”?
Thanks for an awesome stay Edward and his fabulous team! Can’t wait to return.
We definitely recommend the Grand Resort & Spa to all gay travellers visiting Fort Lauderdale.

Gay clothing optional men’s resort in North America. Three buildings, 63 rooms, 3 pools, two Hot tubs, free Continental breakfast, free parking, and just steps to the Beach.”,”viewport”:”DESKTOP”}]}”>
While I stayed at The Worthington property, the three properties do set the gold standard for gay-friendly accommodations in Fort Lauderdale. I had a room on the third floor which I chose on purpose to maintain social distancing. Outside my door was a sundeck which I used on a couple of occasions to minimize interactions with other guests. When the day became hotter and the pool called to me, I went to the main level. I was impressed how the chaise lounges were spread out to keep a safe space between patrons.
The staff went above and beyond in finding us a 2 night stay in peak season between 2 longer staying guests. This allowed us to stay before our cruise and enjoy an amazing gay friendly and clothing optional resort. The guests were very friendly and everything in our room was beautiful.
One of the best gay resort I stayed with. A good place to relax and to meet nice guys from around the world. Accommodation are comfortable. All the staff is dedicated to make sure that your stay is enjoyable.
Among the plusses are the easy check in, beautiful grounds, awesome pools and hot tubs, clean rooms, comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff, convenience to beach, restaurants, and Wilton Manor gay bars.
This place is for the gays who saw Judy Garland live at the Palace. The staff could no be more friendly and accommodating. This is a gay male clothing optional hotel. It’s fun, clean, and the guest are very friendly especially if your under 50.
The grounds are well kept – some very pretty landscaping and not-too-subtle but effective lighting throughout. All three pools were spotless, and both hot-tubs were as well.
I understand the complaints that the hot-tubs don’t get very hot, and there is way too much chlorine – but I think that The Worthington Resorts ought to be lauded for their efforts to comply with all the regulations and still keep two nice hot-tubs available for their guests. Thank you for that!
My room was very nice, the last one on the end of the building on the ground floor. I found it to be private enough when I needed it to be and yet close enough to everything else if I choose to participate. Comfortable bed, many pillows, clean crisp linens, lovely shower. There is also a microwave and refrigerator in the room.
I will definitely be back. This was my first experience at a gay resort – clothed or not – and I’m afraid I’ve been spoiled.
For a gay resort it’s actually fairly quiet all things considered. Each property has it’s own side entrance so that was very convenient.
The only slightly odd thing was the toilets make loud and ongoing noises when you flush for a minute or so, the first time you’re worried it’s broken but that’s just the way they are.
You are just a 10 minute easy walk to the gay beach and just 5 minutes to a Starbucks. There is a good selection of beach chairs you can borrow so you don’t have to buy one. It was only about 20 minute drive from the airport.
Breakfast is nothing super exciting but serviceable (instead of just coffee mugs it would’ve been nice to have some larger paper to go cups with more room). The cafe serves lunch (for purchase) I never tried that.
The wifi worked great and the bedside lamps have plugins so very easy to charge your phone. The bed was comfortable and I was pleased with the kitchen in my suite. The walk in shower was nice and big.
I will definitely be coming back and will try to get my same room I had.

4. The Big Coconut Guesthouse 3* – Gay Fort Lauderdale Hotels
Set 2 miles from the beach, this cozy hotel catering to gay men is 1.2 miles from the Bonnet House and Museum, and 5.2 miles from dining and nightlife in LGBT-friendly Wilton Manors.
Warm, relaxed rooms have TVs with DVD players (a movie library is available on-site), and pillow-top mattresses. Some rooms include kitchens and separate living and dining spaces.
The hotel has a secluded clothing-optional outdoor pool with a sundeck, a hot tub and barbecue grills. Other amenities include continental breakfast, a social hour with wine, guest-use beach towels and chairs, and off-street parking.
The rooms are clean, the towels are high quality, and it’s peaceful to sleep. There is a free breakfast offered with cereals, fruits, English muffins, tea, coffee, & juices.
Having not been to Fort Lauderdale for a few years, we were surprised to see a lot of the older gay resorts have disappeared. Not knowing anything about the Big Coconut Resort or much about this area, we decided to stay there after checking out other resorts online.
The prices were lower than most comparable resorts, so we took a chance and booked 4 nights based on nothing more than pictures and the excellent reviews. We had stayed in the top recommended gay resort on our previous visit, but we had issues with the large amount of mosquitos there that ruined our stay. We definitely made the right choice this time, it doesn’t get much better than this!
Amenities here are excellent, lots of free parking on both sides of the resort, the clothing optional pool is the perfect temperature. The pool is surrounded by lounge chairs which is a perfect spot for sun bathing, relaxing, interacting with other guests or planning your nights out.
They offer happy hour between 5-6pm during weekends with complimentary alcoholic cocktails and drinks, giving guest the opportunity to get to know each other. We were offered complimentary iced water and towels, a selection of suntan lotions and after sun products.
The continental breakfast (cereal, yogurt, bagels, fresh fruit and muffins and doughnuts, coffee, tea, fruit juices etc.). The breakfast was excellent and was more than we expected.
The owner David was very helpful and personable, he provided us with great advice on the places to be and where to go for activities or dinner.
Publix and Walgreens within a short walk there were many options for snacks or to have food delivered to your room or poolside. Our visits to the beach were made much better by the provision of chairs, umbrellas and ice pack for our drinks, fabulous!
The staff bend over backwards to make sure that you have what you need. They don’t offer a Turn-down service performed at some resorts we have stayed, but I do find this unnecessary and a bit pompous. This resort gives everything you need and more but is not trying to be anything it is not.
The atmosphere here is welcoming and relaxed, the staff created a friendly atmosphere akin to a comfortable social gathering with family and friends, which is sometimes lacking in the other resorts.We enjoyed the visits from Celena(the dog) and Peanut the resident parrot.
Most of the guests staying there during our visit were couples, so the atmosphere was fun and relaxed, but not overly cruisey.
