1. Fire Island
One of the most famous (and infamous) LGBT resort destinations in America, this small barrier island is set ablaze with action during the summer. If you’re visiting New York for the first time this WorldPride, make a pilgrimage to one of the island’s two LGBT communities: Cherry Grove or the Pines. The former has a diverse community vibe, and the latter is home to such notable establishments as Sip N’ Twirl and Pavilion. There are no cars here, so you’ll need to take the LIRR to Sayville and hop on a quick shuttle bus to your ferry ride to this magical place.
