France is one of the most visited countries in the world, consistently topping the UN’s World Tourism Organization annual report on the country that receives the most visitors. It’s no surprise given the many cultural hotspots to visit like Paris, Lyon, Nice, Deauville, the Alpine mountains, ski resorts, beaches, picturesque villages and no fewer than 44 UNESCO World Heritage sites. France also boasts one of the most recognized and popular cuisines with an abundance of highly rated wines and cheeses. French cuisine is so notorious that it was declared a “world intangible heritage” by UNESCO in 2010.

As a result, LGBTQ+ people played and continue to play a pivotal role in the culture of Key West.
