A City With Guys of Every Type
Home to America's first gay district and first gay rights organization as well as a city-sponsored gay Hall of Fame, Chicago has a long history with the gay community. As both a center for manufacturing and the home of 29 Fortune 500 companies, the metro area is home to gay men of every income, ethnicity and type. Have a thing for foreign men? Over 20% of the population was born outside the country.
Where are the boys? Boystown!
Officially called East Lakewood, Boystown is home to the first recognized gay district in the U.S. and is well known for its alcohol-heavy party culture. Sitting between Halsted St. and Broadway, the area is home to over 30 gay-focused establishments running the gamut from high class restaurants, to dive bars, to dance clubs.
Andersonville: A More Relaxed Gay District
This traditionally Swedish neighborhood has emerged as a low-key alternative to Boystown. The emphasis here is less on bars and more on restaurants and coffee shops, with most businesses concentrated on Clark Street. For those who are looking for someone without all the drinking of Boystown or are more focused on daytime activity than nightlife, it's the perfect place to cruise.
Just because you're gay doesn't mean you have to live in the city. Gay populations are growing fastest in the suburbs, especially toward the southwest, which is opening up opportunities for guys to meet, hang out and hook up without having to go into the city.
