One Human Family

What can I say about Key West?

A continual welcoming and accepting attitude toward all kinds of people has created a unique cultural mix of different ethnic groups, languages, traditions, religions, foods, and freethinkers. It has resulted in a different cultural character that the community of Key West refers to as the “ONE HUMAN FAMILY” philosophy.

I took these pictures on one of my walks around the town. They represent the unique neighborhoods of Key West with unique people striving to live harmoniously and work side-by-side with one another, setting aside all social differences, regardless of ethnicity, social class, or sexual orientation. Key West is connected with the mainland by different bridges that stream down over 100 miles of small islands. Once you get to Key West you’ve become part of a tiny diverse and harmonious social universe. Give yourself the chance to get to know the local ways of Key West.

All People Are Created Equal Members of One Human Family. It’s the Official Philosophy of Key West, Florida, adopted by resolution by the City Commission in October 2000.

If you happen to be in Key West when it’s the Key West Songwriter’s Festival, you’ll have a great way to experience the local ways and people surrounded by music.
