N YC is a gay-friendly town with a variety of neighbourhoods offering pockets of queer culture and nightlife, each with its own fruity flavour. The West Village — the hub of the modern gay movement, thanks to the rebellion at the Stonewall Inn — still bristles with gay bars and drag clubs, mostly unaffected hangouts such as the appealing Pieces , and The Monster , a two-floor nightlife emporium with piano bar on top and disco down below. Chelsea the gay mecca in the 90s was beset by a mass exodus as it became gentrified, though the long-running Barracuda Lounge still provides booze and schmooze, and G Lounge never goes away, thanks to its ambient mini-areas in which to hang with your clique. On last count, there were 14 gay bars in the area, without a cap off in sight. And even gays without muscles have a chance at some fun. By Steven Manchester , nightlife promoter, performer and club regular I go to clubs based on the music and DJs, which are in my opinion what makes a party.

A gay village also known as a gay neighborhood , gay enclave , gayvenue , gay ghetto , gaytto , gay district , gaytown or gayborhood is a geographical area with generally recognized boundaries, inhabited or frequented by many lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgender LGBT people. Gay villages often contain a number of gay-oriented establishments, such as gay bars and pubs, nightclubs , bathhouses , restaurants , boutiques and bookstores. Such areas may represent a LGBTQ-friendly oasis in an otherwise hostile city, or may simply have a high concentration of gay residents and businesses. Much as other urbanized groups, some LGBT people have managed to utilize their spaces as a way to reflect their cultural value and serve the special needs of individuals in relation to society at large. Today, these neighborhoods can typically be found in the upscale or trendy parts of town like in Manhattan , chosen for aesthetic or historic value, no longer resulting from the sociopolitical ostracization and the constant threat of physical violence from homophobic individuals that originally motivated these communities to live together for their mutual safety. These neighborhoods are also often found in working-class parts of the city, or in the neglected fringe of a downtown area — communities which may have been upscale historically but became economically depressed and socially disorganized.
