Gay Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a popular holiday town on the south coast of England. It's got a big gay population and the largest sandy gay beach in the UK called Studland Bay.

As a kid I spent a lot of my summer holidays in Bournemouth as my grand parents live there. Its a great little place and always fun to visit.
