ABOUT NEW YORK CITY LGBTQ New York City Rich with the history of Stonewall, a lively LGBTQ community and the fabulosity of being the city that never sleeps, New York is so full of options it can be overwhelming. Don’t fret, it is not hard to plan the perfect queer-tinerary of the Big Apple. Seven days a week you can find what, and possibly who, you’re after no matter where you hang out on the continuum. Gay culture has spread its wings throughout New York and the well-known gay areas such as Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen and the Village are no longer your only option. Venture over to the Upper West Side, Queens, Park Slope or Brooklyn and expand your possibilities even further. After all, if you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere - it’s up to you... You know the rest.
