    Does anybody know good gay oriented places to hangout? I would love to have some gay friends. All of my friends are straight, not that that's a bad thing, they're awesome and I love them but it would be nice to have one or two gay friends.

    Palm Coast? You're closest in-person place might be Daytona. I seem to remember one or two bars downtown, right across from the park/marina area just before the bridge to the beach. Hold on lemme google map...

    Yeah, just n of marina area vicinity Int'l Speedway Blvd at the ICW. Just N of that I see this:

    http://www.axesseventcenter.com/

    but don't see the one I was thinking of.

    And then over on the beach was a joint called streamline I think. a hotel/bar. just found an article. might not be gay anymore.

    Wow, googling I don't even see a regular gay bar there anymore. looks like Axess has gay nights maybe? How depressing.

    Gay life was never great there but at least it was existing. I'd bet online/cell phone/cyber life just killed it. Daytona, what a drag.

    I knowwww its so sad. I google so much and found nothing. I also found axess but I was told it shut down... I'll have to check again and see. The only places seem to be in Orlando and that's quite a hike.

    haven't been to Florida in ages - but looking at a map, St. Augustine is north of there, and Jacksonville farther north. Try finding a Damron guide (maybe on line these days, or Spartacus, that lists gay places around the USA and world.

    Even Purple Roofs?

    Plus Miami and Wilton Manors. However, Palm Coast is really in the middle of nowhere. Orlando is your realistic closest choice.

    Lots of gay flight students there. icon_wink.gif

    Think I found something

    https://www.facebook.com/volusiapride

    They just had a meeting in June so I'd imagine there are volunteer slots open.

    Looks like pride is Oct 24th. And looks like there's a fundraising music event in August.

    Well, that's something at least.

    Otherwise, yeah, Orlando is your best bet or probably there's still a bar in G-ville too so check that.

    Also check local schools, community colleges. They might have clubs and then you could take some classes and participate.

    Anyway, I'm real surprised to learn there's no gay nightlife left in Daytona. I never would have guessed.
