Gay Dominican Republic
A tropical island paradise welcomes you with turquoise waters, vibrant culture, and LGBTQ-friendly resorts
About Dominican Republic
While the Dominican Republic may not be the epicenter of LGBTQ culture in the Caribbean, it has a burgeoning gay scene, primarily concentrated in urban areas like Santo Domingo. The Malecon in Santo Domingo boasts venues like Club Arena that will keep you dancing for hours. The Conde, in Santo Domingo's Colonial Zone, is a place where you may encounter openly queer individuals, although traditional machismo culture remains strong. Don't miss the Draguéalo events, celebrating drag, vogue, self-expression, and diversity throughout the country. A pride parade is held annually in Santo Domingo in July.
The Dominican Republic offers a range of LGBTQ-friendly accommodations. In Punta Cana, you'll find a variety of resorts, some of which are specifically gay-friendly. These all-inclusive resorts cater to North American tourists seeking a relaxing vacation with inclusive amenities. Many of these resorts also host poolside parties and special events to make your stay unforgettable.
