More news about gay urban enclaves

According to recent research by the University of British Columbia, which was published last week in Pink News, gay and lesbian spaces in cities are dispersing and diversifying rather than disappearing.

The study finds that only 12% of LGBTQ Americans older than 18 years of age currently live in gay enclaves “gayborhoods” in major cities and more than 70% (72% to be precise) have never lived in a ‘gay neighborhood’. In many cities same sex couples with children are choosing to live in more suburban settings. Provincetown, MA, North Hampton, MA and Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood where called out as top postcodes for lesbians (no surprise to anyone familiar with these places). However, top postcodes for gay men remain the largest gay, urban neighborhoods like The Castro and West Hollywood. But trends suggest that while the traditional “gayborhood” is changing it is reflecting a diversity that better represents the make up of the United States.

We will see what ultimately happens to the few remaining gay enclaves, but a diversifying neighborhood where gay individuals, couples and families call home and are both vocal and visible seems like a better alternative to disappearing.

What to do this week: March 11 – 17

LGBTQ conference at Harvard: March 8-9

coupleThe LGBTQ Conference at Harvard returns this coming weekend (March 8-9). This year’s theme is Partners in Justice and Equity.

2019 LGBTQ Conference at Harvard: Partners in Justice and Equity

This year’s conference will explore how LGBTQ+ people—activists and advocates, inside and outside of social and political institutions—are working to bring explicitly queer values of love, courage, and liberation to the places where they are needed most. Our goal is to think, plan, and implement in the direction of a better future, not just for LGBTQ+ people, but for all. The conference is open to the public and this year will include 35 guest speakers and panelists who range from social and community activists to artists to elected politicians.

This conference is a wonderful opportunity to come together, listen and learn, and help strengthen our community.

What to do this week: March 4 – 11

There is a ton happening this week in and around Boston including a very interesting sounding Gay Men Board Game Speed Dating in the middle of the week and opening night for Boston Ballet: Full on Forsythe on Thursday (which is going to be awesome).
