Destination

Gayborhood

Philly’s Gayborhood is located in the heart of The Washington West neighborhood of Center City. On April, 18, 2007, the City of Philadelphia officially recognized the Gayborhood area by adding 36 gay pride rainbow flag symbols to street signs. 32 additional signs were added in June 2010. The term “Gayborhood” was first used to describe OutFest by the City Paper, when David Warner described it as a “beautiful day in the gayborhood.”  Philly Pride immediately began to use to the term the following year to describe the area of our gay pride parade formation. It has now become a universally recognized term.

How to get there

Ride the Market-Frankford Line to 13th Street, Broad Street Line to Walnut-Locust, Trolley Routes to 13th Street, and any Regional Rail Line to Jefferson Station. There are also several Bus Routes that serve the Gayborhood including Routes 9, 12, 21, 23, 42, and 45. Plan your trip here.
