Detroit Gay and Lesbian Scene

(Detroit, Michigan - MI, USA US)

Being such a large and lively city, Detroit comes with a thriving gay community and many friendly nightspots, which either welcome an LGBT crowd or more of a mixed crowd. If you are looking for a night out on the tiles, then consider the bars and clubs present along roads such as East 7 Mile Road, East 8 Mile Road, Greenfield Road, Holden Street, Michigan Avenue, West Warren Avenue and Winder Street, amongst others.

There are also a number of gay bars to be found on the outskirts of Detroit, in the suburbs of Dearborn, Hamtramck, Inkster, Royal Oak and Ferndale, the latter of which boasts a particularly notable gay and lesbian scene. In the 1960s, the Palmer Park Apartment District was central to the local LGBT community, with many of these residents choosing to relocate to both Ferndale and Royal Oak over the subsequent decades.

Ferndale belongs to the Detroit metropolitan area and is well-known in the Motor City for its progressive policies and open-minded residents. In Ferndale, many of the most popular LGBT-themed bars and nightclubs line streets such as 9 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue. A little further afield, Ann Arbor also offers an enticing nightlife.
