Gay Chicago

Chicago is a city known for embracing diversity and inclusion, from its world-famous Pride celebrations to its claim to the country's first official gay neighbourhood. While the whole city exudes a welcoming vibe, there are a couple of especially queer neighbourhoods that are worth a visit, from the historic importance of Boystown to the quirky local businesses of Andersonville. Roger's Park offers a low-key visit, while Uptown is the place to go for a good old queer party, and this range makes Chicago's gay scene is well worth exploring.
