Poverello Center is located in Wilton Manors Florida and serves all of Broward County. Their goal is to provide life-saving nutrition, food and assist with basic living essentials. The services are provided to individuals with need qualifications living with HIV/AIDS at no cost and with a high degree of understanding, caring, respect and love. The needs of Poverello's clients are met by the distribution of free groceries and clothing from their centrally located food bank and thrift shop.

Another goal of this volunteer driven charity is to ease the stress, loneliness and in some cases alienation from family and friends that is caused by living with the HIV/AIDS virus. Your thoughtful and caring monetary gifts and donations of food, clothing and other goods that can be sold in the Poverello thrift store provides help for Broward County's brothers and sisters in need. Throughout the year Poverello also presents functions that allow you to participate in a fun activity and donate or raise funds.

Florida's Best Clothing Optional Gay Men's Resorts

Life in the tropics is all about beating the heat. And what better way cool off than to hang out poolside without clothing? Florida has dozens of clothing optional resorts, but which ones are the best? Here's the Mark's List take on the 5 best (in no particular order).

In Key West check out New Orleans House and Island House. New Orleans House is located on Duval Street, right in the middle of all of the action. You can count on a great time poolside or in Key West's biggest Gay nightclub, Bourbon Street Pub. Island House is located on a quieter side street and offers amazing rooms, many of them opening onto the pool and patio. There's also an amazing pool side cafe serving up some of the best food (and libations) on the Island. In Fort Lauderdale, we suggest you get your Gay clothing optional groove on at The Grand Resort and Spa, which offers an upscale atmosphere with amenities that include spa services, poolside cabana bars and plenty of tanning lotion to keep your booty from burning. In Central Florida you can head out into the woods and catch some all over rays at the Sawmill Camping Resort. Sawmill offers cabins and plenty of places to park RVs or pitch tents. There's also a large heated pool, a dance hall, restaurant, several themed bars and plenty of trails to go "hiking" on.
