I liked the central location of the hotel. Good restaurants around the area. The woman in the dining room at breakfast as well as the concierge were outstanding. Clean and well decorated. I didn’t like the fact that I reserved a king room and was told that they over booked and I was only offered ...

Washington DC Gay and Lesbian Travel

If you are ever going to feel a sense of patriotism, it will be in magnificently planned Washington, D.C., where there seems to be a breathtaking monument around every corner. You can also be proud of your gay history here too: In 1965, America’s first gay civil rights demonstration took
place in front of the White House, with picketers dressed in business suits; the city’s Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance is the nation’s oldest continuously active LGBT organization; in 1991, the nation’s first Black Gay and Lesbian Pride Day happened here; and within hours of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality in June 2015, the White House lit up in the colors of the Pride Flag.

You could spend days and days and still not see everything on the Mall, the gorgeous space between the Capitol building and the Lincoln Memorial. Most of the buildings of the Smithsonian are on the Mall, as are the National Archives (home to the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights) and the Washington, Jefferson and Roosevelt Monuments. In D.C. you’ll find a museum for any mood including the National Museum Natural History, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the new National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Despite its reputation as a businesslike, buttoned-down and even sleepy town, D.C. is one of gayest destinations on the East Coast. Sure, it may not have the hip nightlife of New York or Miami, but scores of LGBT people call the place home. The city even has a Mayor’s Office on LGBT Affairs. Although gays are scattered across town in places like Capitol Hill, Shaw, Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan, NoMa and elsewhere, the main hub remains the traditionally queer area of Dupont-Logan, although queer bars now flourish along the U Street Corridor. Visit Memorial Day Weekend for the huge, four-day Black Pride Festival; the multi-faceted Capital Pride Festival is held in June; and Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend in January has become the East Coast’s must-do fetish weekend.

Travel tips

1. Consider the trains—all of them.

Amtrak's high-speed train, the Acela, travels from D.C. to New York in under three hours (when it’s not delayed). It can be a lot less of a hassle than flying. Meanwhile, the city’s subway system—the Metro, is fast, efficient and reliable. Take it everywhere.

2. Visit during the quieter congressional recesses. 

Lawmakers break for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, July 4 and the entire month of August. Mid-March through June is the busiest time in D.C., as it’s springtime when the cherry blossoms are in bloom along the Potomac. Hot and sticky August can have cheaper hotel rates as well.

3. The tourism board gives good info. 

D.C. has a very gay-positive tourism board; go to washington.org/lgbt.
