The LGBT community and New York State go way back. This is where the Stonewall rebellion gave birth to the modern LGBT civil rights movement, just as it was the birthplace of the women’s rights movement and a hub of the abolitionist movement. It’s where Harvey Milk went to college, and home to the nation’s oldest continually operating LGBT community center and longest continually published LGBT newspaper. We continued to make history when we became the largest state in the nation with legal marriage for all loving couples.
But LGBT people continue to make New York their most desired travel destination in the world not only because of the mark we have made on history and culture. It’s to experience amazing arts, delicious food and drink, vibrant nightlife, world class shopping, romance, relaxation, special LGBT events and outdoor adventure, whether as a single, a couple, with a group of friends or even with the kids.
Come and explore why, for LGBT travelers, there is so much to love in New York State.
