The 2021 Gayborhood List has been announced!

We are delighted to announce our first internationally recognized #Gayborhood list. Our trustees spent hours researching the most exciting areas of gay sanctuary across the world.

The challenges for our trustees in compiling this list were immense, in large part due to the obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Painstaking work was undertaken to speak to residents in cities and towns all around the world to ascertain what it is like to live in each area.

There are 33 areas now internationally recognized as a #Gayborhood. The USA leads the way with 9 Gayborhoods, with Australia and the UK on 4 each.

Our trustees were heartened to find that despite the lockdown restrictions in many countries gayborhoods still thrived. They mentioned how LGBTQI+ contributions to the pandemic have had a hugely positive impact on wider society.

The Gayborhood Foundation would like to congratulate all of those areas that made this year’s list.

The full list is published here and the criteria is here.
