Whether you call it â€ścity of brotherly loveâ€ť or â€śthe place that loves you back,â€ť any metropolis thatâ€™s so demonstrably affectionate is bound to win your heart. The fifth largest city in the U.S. was founded on the notion of freedom, so itâ€™s no wonder that itâ€™s become such a LGBT-friendly destination. Gay rights protests happened here even before Stonewall and the national advocacy group Equality Forum is based here. But Philly is not just for history buffs and activists (or fans of the TV show Itâ€™s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for that matter). Culture in all its forms is everywhere a visitor turns, whether itâ€™s the cityâ€™s acclaimed theaters and cultural centers, its internationally renowned museums and galleries or the many events it hosts throughout the year. Just roaming the streets is an adventure, whether youâ€™re an architecture buff, a shopaholic looking for the perfect vintage belt buckle or a caffeine addict looking for the perfect spot to park your butt for people-watching.
As for nightlife, Philly offers everything from character-filled neighborhood pubs to sleek megaclubs and afterhours hotspotsâ€”just pick your price range and how late you want to stay out. Men and women party side-by-side in many of the cityâ€™s barsâ€”and sometimes they even party with straight people. A growing number of dining venues here have embraced the farm-fresh movement, so expect top-notch gourmet meals, as well the cityâ€™s famed cheesesteak.
Which gay-owned hotel is one of Phillyâ€™s most popular crashpads? Whatâ€™s the hottest Friday night party? Where can you watch some gender-bending burlesque and cabaret shows? Whatâ€™s the queerest resort escape just a short drive away? Whenâ€™s the best time to see non-stop live art performances? The Bump! Philadelphia Travel Guide has all the LGBT answers.
