Gay and Lesbian Travel

Attitudes toward same-sex couples are very tolerant in Manhattan and many parts of Brooklyn. Chelsea, Greenwich Village, and Hell's Kitchen are the most prominently gay neighborhoods, but gay men and lesbians feel right at home almost everywhere. The world's oldest gay-pride parade takes place on 5th Avenue the last Sunday in June.


For listings of gay events and places, check out Next and the Gay City News, both distributed free on the street and in many bars and shops throughout Manhattan. Magazines Paper and Time Out New York have a gay-friendly take on what's happening in the city.
