Not Every Face In Wilton Manors Is Gay. But They Sure Do Love ‘Em

“The diversity that’s come in in the last 10 years, we embrace,” says Diane, a longtime resident of Wilton Manors in Florida’s Broward County, in an interview with the excellent hyper-local profiling web series One Square Mile. She doesn’t want her town — in the news this week because of the murder of gay couple Kevin Mark Powell and Steve Adams, and soon to be home to the extravagant $80 million G Worldwide complex — to be branded as any one thing. “We share our town. You’ve got to be open minded. This is a whole new geneation. You can’t go back, you’ve got to go forward. I don’t think we need a label. I don’t want it to be a senior citizens area. I don’t want it to be a gay mecca. I want it to be Hometown, USA.” [OneSquareMile.TV]
