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.
