It's All Good in Philly's Gayborhood
In the heart of Philadelphia's Center City sits a quaint neighhorhood of shady streets and attractive shopfronts. No, it's not the upscale "Gold Coast"-sort of area, but it is the Gayborhood.
Bordered on the north by Walnut Street, south by Pine Street, east by 11th and west by Juniper Street, the Gayborhood is a village of gay-friendly shops, bars and restaurants. Although it was hopping during Pride Week in June as you can imagine, the real summer action has just begun, with two weeks of this month set aside for the "There's No Place Like Home" two-week-long block party.
From now until July 24th, you can follow the
yellow brick road 32 rainbow street signs that were just unveiled this last weekend when we were in town. From there, it's all photo exhibits, special film screenings, and even a discount card for the Gayborhood businesses and bars.
