Wilton Manors is super gay. In fact, it's supposedly the second gayest town in the country.
So it should come as no surprise that our fair gayborhood is about to host a fabulous extravaganza, the Stonewall Summer Pride, this weekend.
And as you would expect, in celebration of the event, the gayborhood is going to feature some epic parties. We have a list of the top five after the jump.

5. Jackhammer T-Dance
Every Sunday, Boom hosts its weekly '70s and '80s Jackhammer T-Dance party, which is the spot's busiest night of the week. With the massive crowds at Stonewall, it'll probably be like the gay South Florida version of Studio 54.
Boom is located at 2232 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors. Call 954-630-3556, or visit boomwiltonmanors.com.
You're not going to find lions. You're not going to find tigers. But you will find yourself plenty of bears. As part of Bill's Filling Station's weekly Growl party, the bar is throwing a special pride edition this weekend with VJ's Kenny Poole and Barry Browder. The bar offers a number of drink specials.
Bill's Filling Station is located at 2209 Wilton Drive, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-567-5978, or visit billsfillingstation.com.
3. Absolute Outrageous
Vodka tends to liven up a party. Lots of vodka is even better. On Friday night, Georgie's Alibi is hosting a vodka-fueled party with an ice luge, Absolut drink specials, and the special limited edition Alibi Absolut bottle. For the evening, the bar is extending out to the parking lot with outdoor bars and live music. DJ Michael Tank will be spinning.
Georgie's Alibi is located at 2266 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors. Call 954-565-2526, or visit georgiesalibi.com.
2. Divas, Feathers, & Beads
If you're looking to expose your inner -- or outer diva -- it should be all about the glam. And the ultra chichi mega club, the Manor, most certainly has you covered. The bar that looks like it came straight out of Liberace's Vegas is hosting a Friday night soiree that will be the gay version of Mardi Gras. The party will feature live performances by Serena, Estephania, TP Lords, and Sasha. DJ JPS and DJ Miik will be spinning. VIP Bottle Service is just $150 all night.
The Manor is located at 2345 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors. Call 954-626-0082, or visit themanorcomplex.com.
1. Stonewall Concert
You can't throw a big gay party without dance music -- especially '90s dance music. To get the party going in a '90s sort of way, artists Amber, CeCe Peniston, and Kristine W. will be performing.
The Stonewall Summer Pride Concert is taking place Sunday night starting at 7:30 p.m. on the main stage. It's taking place between Five Points and 20th Street.
