Seattle’s gay community has become fairly integrated within the city’s general population. For the last few decades in Seattle the center of gay life has been on Capitol Hill and on Broadway Ave. You now find it spread throughout the city as the urban population has accepted the gay community into their daily lives. This is along with Broadway Avenue no longer being the center of gay life in Seattle
There is a wealth of activities available in Seattle that is not just limited to Capitol Hill. The many neighborhoods of Seattle near downtown are also very friendly such as Fremont, Wallingford, Queen Anne, Eastlake, Madison Park, and that is just to name a few.
Currently, the area on Capitol Hill around Pike and Pine Streets has grown from just a few gay clubs to also include dozens of hip “gay friendly” clubs. Suddenly Capitol Hill is cool and the young straight population is swarming to these new hip lounges and taverns that seem to pop up each week.
The vibrancy and energy of Seattle’s nightlife continues to grow, albeit in a more integrated fashion.
