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.

Legal Notes

The US Virgin islands are a territory of the United States. Sodomy was decriminalised in 1984. In the past community and business leaders have discussed legalising same-sex marriage as a way of boosting tourism in St. Croix, but the U.S. Virgin Islands government is unlikely to approve such a measure if it were proposed.
