As one point of North Carolina’s famed Research Triangle, Durham is host to an abundance of intellectually-fascinating places, people and events. Whether you’re looking for something low-key or action-packed, explore the city with confidence using Gayborhood as your guide.

“Safe, inviting, inspiring — that’s how Durham’s LGBTQ+ community describes the Bull City. Durham welcomes you and loves you not in spite of who you are, but because of who you are.

From its activist roots to current reputation as a progressive Southern city, Durhamites have worked hard to ensure that the Bull City is a welcoming place for all who visit. When the North Carolina General Assembly passed HB2 in 2016, Durhamites stood in solidarity with the LGBTQ community through protests, fundraisers for LGBTQ non-profits, and “We Don’t Care” bathroom signage. This is a community that will uplift you, support your dreams, and give you strength. Whether you’re staying for one night or the rest of your life, you’ll feel right at home here.” – Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau
