Thank you to those who attended the OC Pride 2017. We enjoyed hosting the closing festivities here in Laguna Beach. From the daylong re-opening of the Boom Boom Room to the beach party on West Street Beach and late-night dancing at Main Street Bar & Cabaret, we sure enjoyed ourselves.

On May 9th, the City of Laguna Beach presented the LGBT Heritage and Culture Committee with a proclamation recognizing the month of June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Heritage and Culture Month in Laguna Beach. If you missed out, view this

History - In the 1960s, Main Beach in Laguna Beach was not only a major tourist destination, but also known as the epicenter of the city's gay culture, which was home to two beach-front gay bars, Dante's and Barefoot. Scroll down the page to find a list of local gay events in Laguna Beach.

The City eventually made Main Beach a public park, also known as the ‘window to the sea.' The gay culture naturally moved to the 1400 block of South Coast Highway, which was home to The Coast Inn, Boom Boom Room and a gay dinner house, which has changed hands several times over the years.

Bob Gentry was the first openly gay elected official in Orange County when he became mayor of Laguna Beach in 1982, further welcoming the gay community to town. He served during the height of the AIDS crisis.

Although there's only one gay nightclub in town now, Main Street Bar & Cabaret, crowds still go to West Street, the unofficial gay beach.
