Hey that's so nice of you, thanks for expressing that. We deeply believe and love our mission, and because of people like you is that we continue 😃🙌


Thank you for maintaining this site and helping to make Newport County and the greater area more LGBTQ friendly and accessible!

I was born and raised in this wonderful city and have continued to enjoy our island community for years. My partner and I reside in the Boston suburbs but frequent Aquidneck Island, Bristol, Westport, Ma, Wickford, Jamestown yearly. Wether visiting with family and friends, or just sneaking away for some quiet time. Your site/guide is going to be very useful and visited often! Continued success!
