The Bottom Line (TBL) Gay and Lesbian Bar in Fort Myers, FL

Carrie Fowler
Michael Newlin
The Bottom Line is the largest Gay entertainment complex in Southwest Florida, including Fort Myers, Naples and Cape Coral and has been going strong for over 25 years. The nightclub offers entertainment seven days a week including live DJs, Drag Queens, Go-Go Boys and the occasional appearance of a major porn star. The nightclub is located in a warehouse area, so the outside appearance is kind of bare bones, but inside you will find a multi story venue with a large dance floor, great lights and a rockin' sound system. The crowd runs the gamut from young to middle aged. Busy nights include Frididay, Saturday and Sunday. To view the weekly lineup of events, use this link: The Bottom Line Fort Myers

If you're in Southwest Florida look 'em up and tell them the gang at Mark's List sent you.

2015 Highlights:

Hillary Clinton Reaches Out to Florida's LGBT Voters

Hillary Rodham Clinton has been in the public eye for over 40 years, and for nearly 25 of those years, she has carved out her own legacy, refusing to be a mere mention alongside her husband, former President Bill Clinton. She served for eight years as United States Senator from New York, and then went on to represent our country abroad as our third female Secretary of State. In the upcoming presidential election, she will face Republican nominee Donald Trump. With just weeks before Election Day, polls show Clinton and Trump in a close battle, with each candidate boasting a loyal voting base. Like in past elections, the turnout from Florida could very well decide the end result this time around (Photo: Adam Schultz).
Recently Secretary Clinton sat down with Mike Halterman to talk about her proposed policies should she be elected, the legacy of the LGBT rights movement, and her vision for our country's future. Read the full interview: Hillary Clinton Reaches Out to Florida's LGBT Voters

Florida's 6 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 or The Royal Palms. Both of these hotels are staffed by some of the sexiest men in South Florida and they both offer an upscale atmosphere with amenities that include spa services, poolside cabana bars and plenty of tanning lotion to keep your bootie 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.

The 2016 SMART Ride Benefiting Broward House

On November 18 and 19 about 500 people will ride their bicycles along a 165 mile scenic trek from Miami to Key West in the SMART Ride 2016. They will be supported by 250 volunteer crew members.   In 2015 nearly $1,000,000 was raised and one hundred percent of this money went AIDS Service Organizations in Florida to serve individuals who are HIV positive or to prevent HIV. This was possible because 100% of the ride production was supported by donations and sponsors. Broward House is an honored participant and recipient for the SMART Ride. You could be a part of this fulfilling experience by donating, riding crewing or sponsoring.
