Brothels in general are illegal in the US because they are places of prostitution (which is illegal). In Nevada, homosexual sex was once considered illegal as well, which would explain why gay brothels are extremely rare. Any that do exist (and there probably are ones that exist) are considered illegal business operations. The first answer explains the history, but since prostitution is legal in Nevada and since Lawrence v. Texas abolished all laws against homosexual sex that means that you could legally open a gay brothel in Nevada today. It just hasn't been very long that you could do that, which explains why you won't find any, yet. Someday there will be one.

Where are brothels in wendover Nevada?

Off and on since 1921 there have been legal brothels in the Nevada side of the city of Wendover. Originally, Wendover became a rest stop with the opening of a gasolise/service station for those daring cross the barren 120 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah to the first solid ground past the salt flats that also had a small spring of fresh water. During WW11, as the support base for the enola gay and its crew and other military in preparation for the first nuclear strike against Japan, there were actually 3 brothels, all doing major business. Only one remained in 1950 when most of the military were removed /relocated. Its name was simply " Will's Ranch and Brothel and occupied a back quarter in the hotel of the burgeoning casino business, and was ambiguously hidden and rarely promoted. In the late 50's/early 60's with the concern of big crime syndicates becoming involved in the gaming business, brothels were made to dis-associate themselves from gaming bars, by Nevada state law. That ended Wendover Will's Honey Ranch, for which was the tallest animated sign in the world for >45 years. Today, West Wendover has separated from Utah's moral constraints, incorporated as a separate city of Nevada, so its now possibly legal for the right business according to the city council memoranda of 1999, which actually advertised for one to locate there. One opened in 2003 but quickly shut down in less than 90 days because of the councils daily intrusions.
