Bogota gay travel guide: gay bars, clubs, hotels & awesome things to do
This open-minded attitude to the naked body started in the 19th century, when Scandinavian-style steam baths became popular; then, in the late 20th century nudity became widely accepted on beaches, in city parks and on walking trails. Recent years have seen a decline of nakedness in such outdoor settings, but the unadorned body is still the standard at bathhouses. Each bathhouse, generally containing the German word bad bath in its name, will have a clothed area centred on a swimming pool, much like any municipal fitness centre.
Successfully finding a gay club in an unfamiliar city can be trying, especially in the Fort Myers area. At a time when more attention and acceptance has been given to LGBT community nationwide you might think the number of clubs and establishments catering to the crowd would have increased. Instead, at least in the Fort Myers area, the number has actually decreased--significantly. Some in the community claim victory, citing more acceptance in mainstream clubs, regardless of sexual orientation.
