We all know that Playa Del Carmen is a very Gay Friendly place and over the years there have been a few ‘Unofficial Gay Friendly’ beaches in town. Beaches like Shangri-La next to Mamitas or Mamitas Beach itself are spots where the gay boys frequently lay out. However, there has never been a nice gay designated area where we can all specifically go to, gather around and feel totally free.
Quintana Roo Senator At The Forefront Of Change!
Senator Luz María Beristain, from the Democratic Revolution Party, has strongly suggested the implementation of a gay-friendly designated beach area in Quintana Roo in order to amplify and promote the area as a respected sexually diverse tourist destination. She mentioned that there are over 180 million LGBT tourists each year who seek vacation spots around Mexico where they can feel comfortable and respected. A huge number that cannot be ignored.
The Senator mentioned Brasil as an example of a destination that welcomes thousands of LGBT tourists each year in cities like Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Salvador. She understands the extremely lucrative possibilities that exists in targeting our specific community. For this to happen though, the area needs to be more inclusive and welcoming to this specific niche.
Quintana Roo has already made gay marriage legal last year and having a LBGT designated beach would be a huge step towards establishing Playa Del Carmen as a world renowned gay destination. Let’s hope Senator Beristain gets to accomplish her vision and we thank her for supporting us and being on our side! We totally support you!
