While the LGBT community can be ultra welcoming, it can sometimes have a reputation for being, shall we say, "divisive" at times, sometimes making it a tad harder for the bears, the lesbians and the circuit queens to all play nicely within the same ultra colorful sandbox. The one place that has managed to bring them all together almost seamlessly is Asbury Park NJ.
They tore down the part of the old Palace casino on the Asbury Park Boardwalk that jutted out over the beach. It used to be an ice skating rink, but had been neglected for decades, so much so that trees grew inside the broken but beautiful structure. I'd heard homeless people and feral cats slept there.
