LGBTQ Boston

As the capital city of the first state in the U.S. to legalize same-sex marriage, Boston stands proud, accessible and welcoming.

 

The city boasts one of the largest LGBT populations on the East Coast with neighborhoods such as the South End and Jamaica Plain offering a good variety of neighborhood pubs, dance bars and inviting lounges drawing a mixed gay/straight crowd.

We’ve had tourists ask about walking the Yellow Brick Road - we’re sorry to disappoint them by pointing out that they may actually mean the Freedom Trail with its painted red brick line that connects the 16 main sites dealing with the history of Boston and the American Revolution. You may also want to walk the Equality Trail - a self-guided walking tour that follows the route of Boston's first Gay Pride March in 1971 and offers information about issues and individuals related to this route.

So come be a part in our continuing history. Oh and at the end of the Freedom Trail, no need to click your heels three times to get home - we recommend the MBTA.

…Let's not forget Cape Cod is just down the coast a bit. Provincetown has long been a prominent LGBT tourist destination. Ferries from Boston (no cars) offer a quick and relaxing way to make the trip or by car it is just a little under three hours. 

Boston Equality Trail

This walking tour follows the route of Boston's first Gay Pride March in 1971 and offers information about different services, community organizations, issues, and individuals related to this route.

Women's Heritage Trail

The Women’s Heritage Trail tells the remarkable stories of women whose lives and achievements have enriched the city of Boston for almost four centuries.
