"3rd Gayest City in America"
Portland, Maine has been referred to as a "gay mecca" and has been named the "3rd Gayest City in America" (Gay/Lesbian Index's metro area ranking
). We take on these titles with pride and are honored that The Advocate has also recognized what a welcoming city Portland is for all travelers and residents. Whether it's dancing at one of our local gay hot spots, being welcomed as you are at all restaurants, hotels, attractions and neighborhoods, or strolling down the street hand-in-hand while taking in the sites, Portland is the place to be out, proud and safe! Come enjoy all that Portland has to offer!
