Seattle is one of the most gay-friendly cities in the country, with a large gay and lesbian community centered on Capitol Hill. Here in this neighborhood, you'll find numerous bars, nightclubs, stores, and bed-and-breakfasts catering to the gay community.
The first place to look for Seattle information is on the Seattle Convention and Visitors Bureau's LGBT Web pages (www.visitseattle.org/visitors/discover/lgbt-travel.aspx). Once you're in Seattle, pick up a copy of the Seattle Gay News (tel. 206/324-4297; www.sgn.org), available at area bookstores and gay bars and nightclubs.
The Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA), 400 E. Pine St., Ste. 322 (tel. 206/363-9188; www.thegsba.org), is Seattle's main LGBT business association and publishes a directory of gay-friendly Seattle businesses. This directory is a great resource and can be found wherever you find the Seattle Gay News.
