Scene and Culture

Until recently gay life in Guam was very closeted. In recent years a growing American style gay scene has developed and there now three gay bars (Denial Bar, Jax Lounge and Midnight Special) . Guam is a small place so islanders hide their sexuality. Though the Catholic church is revered behind closed doors sexual morals are quite liberal. There is a large US airforce base on the island which also helps to spice up gay life on the island.
