Have a date this weekend? Wondering what would be a cool and comfortable place to take them? Or are you looking for a place to just cackle with your queens over some food and drinks? Well, we have made a list of places for you! Why these places you ask? Well, some of them have been welcoming to the LGBT community for years, some have just become our local hangouts and through experience with the staff and management, we know that you will not face any discomfort. Make it a point to support these queer friendly spaces!

This is by no means a complete and exhaustive list, and if you feel like we have left some place out, please let us know! After all, we are trying to make this a gay friendly world.
