At first glance it may seem as though Dominican men are only looking for one thing: tourist dollars. Whereas many, if not the majority, of the men will take advantage of the opportunity to make, beg for, or steal your cash, some of them are genuinely interested in making friends.
Now, if you hang in certain places you will never see, or get to know, this type of Dominican hombre. Most guys that identify as gay Dominicans don't frequent certain establishments or areas. If you get off the beaten path, or leave the routine, you may be fortunate enough to meet some nice guys.
There is a common assumption among tourists that the guys are all hustlers because that is what one usually sees in the clubs, etc. This is not true at all. It's just that the hustlers/buggarones are very outgoing, to say the least. Look closely and you see the other faces in the crowd.
And there are those who openly display their love for one another. Yes, there are Dominican lovers in the midst of all the madness.
