The U.S. Black and Latino gay meccas?

I know most Dlers probably don't give a shit, but I really wanted to know what are the "best" cities for black and latino gays. Well, "best" is based on the individual, so I guess I'm just asking about pure numbers, bars and nightlife, organizations, etc. Wherever gay blacks and latinos have the most presence. For Blacks, Not L.A. and San Francisco. So, Atlanta, NYC, DC, Chicago? Maybe Oakland? Latinos - NYC, Miami? And, if NYC, then what particular locations?

D.C. for sure. Tons of black gays there (and white gays, too, for that matter)

by Anonymousreply 310/07/2010

Not Atlanta or NYC. Why not SF? Because blacks are a smaller minority there? Nonetheless, things are better there than elsewhere by any objective standard. Columbus, Ohio would be a good place.%0D

I would guess the US mecca for Muslims would be NYC or LA. More cosmopolitan in general?

by Anonymousreply 1410/07/2010

r11, NYC is certainly not integrated socially in the gay scene. However there is a very active black gay community here in NYC. I would say it's a good place for black gays. We have our own parties, our own media, our own "celebrities." Its kind of underground which shocks me a bit because it's so obvious if you know the right people and where to look, but the black gay scene is definitely healthy here.

this is YEAARS old but um... Atlanta is DEFINITELY the black gay mecca of the U.S. Yes there are tons of gays of all colors but as far as black gay men who love other black gay men... ATL is the mecca.D.C.,Chicago,NY,Detroit and Philly come to mind as well. But def ATL

Black gay mecca = Atlanta Latino gay mecca = Miami

New York for Latinos. They've got several bars that cater specifically to gay Latin immigrants. The Web, once an Asian bar, is not almost exclusively Latin. Plus, there are several all-Latin bars in Queens.

99% of the strippers and go-go boys in the city are Latin.

My white friends who have a burning desire for Latino boys, particularly those of the bus boy/delivery boy variety find New York a heavenly candy story of sex.

You do know that Atlanta is the gayest city in America now, right? Eclipses NY and SF. It is certainly the center of the black gay universe as well. Latin... I'm thinking NY, LA, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale...

R23, I have met Paul Mooney and I must say, he is a naturally funny person unlike many other comics. I think his manner of talking *gayish* is part of his act. It's a combination of southern black, valley girl and catskills, all rolled up in one hunky man-body.

by Anonymousreply 3002/28/2012

It depends what you mean by "Latino." For Cubans and Puerto Ricans, it's Miami, Tampa and other Florida cities, without question.

For Mexican Americans and recent arrivals from Mexico, LA or Houston.

R30 Judging from what Richard Pryor says on the Video at R28. It would seem Paul Mooney likes the Man Sex.

by Anonymousreply 4002/29/2012

Do yall remember that BET show 'Oh Drama' and Mooney was a guest. It was a show bout gays and sme anti-gay pastor was there with his church members in the audience. Well Paul was throwing words back at the fat bitches when one said "Yall are sick". I remember Mooney kept telling them "I will NOT be judged by the likes of you."

I was disappointed he didn't get up and kicked the heifer in her cunt.

Its seems like everyone is closeted in Miami. The island culture dominates all other things here. Its really unfortunate because I dont think you will find hotter Black or Latino men in US. The Caribbean and South American people mixing together makes for exceptionally good looking guys.

Do you want real Latinos or the fake Mexican kind.

Most Mexicans are like 90% or more Indian so they don't look much like Latinos you normally think of.

You want Spanish looking Latinos, like PR's and white Cubans and Argentinians

NYC is absolutely a gay Latin mecca. There are many thousands of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Colombians, Brazilians & just about every Latin nationality represented in NYC.

Miami is just as much a gay Latin mecca, in proportion to its size vs NYC. Miami's population is 65% Latino. Cubans being the largest, but lots of Venezuelans, Argentines, Colombians, Brazilians & Central Americans.

African-Americans make up only 13 or 14 percent of the entire population of the U.S. That's why they get to claim "minority" status.

And yet, for some reason, here in the metropolitan Chicago area - that's the city and all of its suburbs - African-Americans are 25 to 30 percent of the entire population.

That's twice the national average. And it means the metropolitan Chicago area has THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE of African-Americans of ANY area in the country.

Not Atlanta. Not St. Louis. Not Detroit. Not D.C. Chicago.

And yet, for some reason, Dr. King came here in the mid-'60s, and told all of us white people how we were the most nasty, bigoted, un-Christian, horrible, segregationist, evil people this side of Selma.
