Orlando still has a conservative streak and the state government is actively hostile to equality laws, but the Pulse massacre made locals feel much more protective of its gay population.

Most hotels aren’t troubled in the least by gay couples, and gay people can be themselves anyplace. The most intolerant attitudes will come from other guests at the theme parks, who, of course, mostly aren’t from Orlando. Public displays of affection are not likely to be attacked, but don’t expect a warm reception, either. Then again, sexual affection is not celebrated in the parks if you’re straight, either.

Use your intuition, your good manners, and your common sense.
