Arubans are genuinely welcoming when asked about homophobia on the island. Locals pride themselves on Aruba’s diversity and Dutch heritage. Most are gentle and remarkably nonjudgmental, certainly of tourists, but also of their gay and lesbian neighbors.
Some Arubans are out, especially those under age 40; others aren’t. Those who are live pretty much like their straight friends and family. Gay visibility, especially in the hotel, restaurant, and entertainment industries, is undeniable. The influx of no-apologies gay Latinos over the past few years has increased gay visibility significantly. And if it’s any indication, the island’s top show for almost a decade was a drag-queen extravaganza!
And yes, there’s a gay bar here! Catch up at Jimmy’s Place.
