LGBT Louisville

YOU’RE ONE STEP CLOSER TO BUILDING A CUSTOM LGBT EXPERIENCE FILLED WITH DISCOUNTED ADMISSIONS TO ATTRACTIONS AND MORE.

We’re touted across the globe for being welcoming, inclusive and compassionate. In fact, Travel + Leisure calls Louisville “One of the Friendliest Cities in America.”

From the Vu Guesthouse (an LGBT boutique hotel that opened in 2016 in the city’s Smoketown neighborhood) to nightlife hot spots like Play Louisville, Big Bar, Chill Bar and Nowhere Bar, you can kick back and be yourself in Louisville.

Louisville is also home to two Pride Festivals – The Kentuckiana Pride Festival, held annually in June downtown on the Waterfront, and the Louisville Pride Festival, a street fest under way in September in the heart of the city’s Highlands neighborhood.

Come see the place Orbitz named “One of the 10 Hottest Gay Destinations for 2016”. It’ll be easy to get here but hard to leave.

Several local partners have participated in bi-annual LGBT Diversity & Sensitivity Workshops. For a complete list, click here.

*A national program that designates hotels, resorts and B&Bs as being LGBT friendly based on a variety of criteria.
