Is Philly A Gay-friendly City?

PHILADELPHIA - The best foodie city on the east coast, proximity to the Rocky Mountains, and world-class skiing and biking trails make it an ideal travel destination. But its people, location, and nightlife make it one of the best gay-friendliness cities on the east coast. Philadelphia has it all, whether you're a foodie or a lover of the arts.

Even though Philadelphia is not widely-known as one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly cities in the United States, the city has plenty of queer-friendly spots, and the annual Philly Pride festival is one of the city's most popular annual events. The queerest part of Philadelphia is Washington Square West, a neighborhood that connects the city's business district to Market Street. Here you'll find gay bars and shops galore.
