Florence has always been a meeting place for gay and lesbian people from all over the world.
Thanks to its artistic heritage, the city has been able to attract tourists and travellers who, in the majestic nakedness of the marble statues or in the delicate forms of painted beauties, have noticed hidden homoerotic references. As a matter of fact, Florence has rightfully been the centre of Queer and Gender Studies for its peculiar features of tolerance and acceptance, which are quite unique in the Italian cultural landscape.
Nowadays, gay and lesbian travellers from the world come to Florence to experience its liveliness, beauty and nightlife as part of their journey through Tuscany, and Mornings in Florence would like to help them by pointing out some of the spots that make Florence a gay destination.
