Puerto Vallarta Mexico is an LGBT Arts and Culture Mecca

How important is arts and culture to the LGBT traveler? Very much so! What arts and culture does Puerto Vallarta offer the LGBT traveler? We will concentrate on major offerings found in Puerto Vallarta: art galleries, music and theatre.

Puerto Vallarta has become a vibrant center of art gallery exhibition and promotion within Mexico. A large group of gay friendly galleries are centered in the gay romantic zone and centro historico. In season take advantage of a self guided artwalk tour and Southside Shuffle.

Puerto Vallarta is very fortunate to have its own gay men’s chorus. Organized in 2012 as the first gay chorus in Mexico and Latin America, this chorus consists of 50 to 100 national and ex-pat singers. They perform both current and historical favorites in English and Spanish and is under the director of a new leader Alfonzo Lopez. Puerto Vallarta has also received men’s chorus from other cities, like the Arizona gay men’s chorus Reveille for 2014 Vallarta Gay Pride.

Puerto Vallarta has fantastic musical and comedy venues targeting the LGBT and friendly community: The Palm celebrating 15 years and Act II entertainment with its Main Stages and The Red Room. In season these venues feature famous international musical performers like Well Strung (The Today Show), Lorna Luft, Emmy award winner Leslie Jordan, Roslyn Kind and Jason Brock (the X Factor) seven nights a week.

Puerto Vallarta’s long running original drag shows began in the 1980’s at places like Paco’s Ranch and Blue Chair’s rooftop and continue today. A very successful production of Equus (a famous play) just completed at Act II entertainment. This is quite a challenge even in cities with much larger populations to support theatre. There has been a recent alliance among venues, performers, and local community to increase support for performing arts in Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta is a diverse destination. We have different cultures here and a definite need to accept everyone if the destination is to grow and expand. Having a great arts and culture scene in Puerto Vallarta gives LGBT tourists another reason to visit Puerto Vallarta. Come and see for yourself!
