Gay Guide Caribbean - Virgin Islands of the USA
The Virgin Islands are the nearest neighbours to Puerto Rico. For the average tourist these islands are mainly a station on their Caribbean cruise to buy duty free goods. Next to that there are gay hotels and the fundamental gay entertainment amenities in Frederiksted on St. Croix. And more is not needed. You don't take a gay holiday on a Caribbean island. You go here to lounge on a beautiful beach in a lovely tropical climate, to recreate and play in a sparkling ocean. In 2014, an MP submitted a bill for introducing gay marriage. This instantly led to massive protests from religious groups. The bill had not been read by the parliament yet at the time of going to press.
