Gazing at gay points of interest – Travel
Key West, Fla., has always been proud of its gay heritage, and now it’s showing visitors why. A trolley tour calling itself the nation’s first to highlight a city’s gay and lesbian history rolled through the island town for the first time on November 9. The 70-minute ride includes glimpses of the homes of Tennessee Williams and Jerry Herman and points out places such as historical Fleming Street, dubbed “gay guesthouse row.”
“It’s great to get some of the gay and lesbian history of Key West,” said Joel Wilder, 39, visiting from DeBray, Fla.–one of about 30 tourists who paid $20 for the trolley’s first ride.
