New York City, the birthplace of the Gay Rights movement at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, offers one of the largest and most diverse gay scenes in the world. Gay New York can be a bit overwhelming, but that's also part of the thrill — your options for what (or who) to enjoy at any time are endless. While gay hubs like Chelsea, Hell's Kitchen, and the Village are certainly worth visiting, vibrant queer scenes have spread to the Upper West Side, Queens, Park Slope, and Brooklyn. NYC also boasts perhaps the most intense gay nightlife — it is, after all, the city that never sleeps. Plan your next trip to gay New York with Out.
