Atlantic City: LGBT+

Bet you didn’t know that back in the ‘50s, Atlantic City, NJ was a major destination for gay and lesbian visitors, before Key West and Provincetown.

Long before Stonewall and the first Gay Pride marches there was a prominent LGBT presence in AC.

In fact it’s thanks to the crowds of gay fans that the campy, fun Miss America “Show Us Your Shoes” 

Parade began decades ago and is still one of the most popular annual parades on the Boardwalk.

Casinos, resorts, hotels, spas, restaurants and nightclubs extend a warm invitation to LGBT visitors. Atlantic City’s current mayor, Don Guardian, is gay, so the welcome is from the leadership too!
