Scene and Culture
The U.S. Virgin Islands has a tiny gay scene focused around gay and lesbian visitors. The main part of the scene (if thats the right word to use) is centred on the gay beach at Solomon Bay. In addition, the islands have almost always had some gay nightlife as well but things constantly change. Visitor should ask around the gay beaches or one of the gay-friendly hotels (See the Expedia website below) to find out whats current.
