Before today, the only way Belize was ever topical was when I was discussing chic places to escape winter with my nouveau riche fashion friends. Inevitably the eco-resort off its coast where the petit bourgeois, and Tiger Woods, go to getaway from the drama, came up.

Belize is poised to be the Tunisia of a Gay Spring. As if there weren’t a cruising scene in that jungle already.
