The people have spoken and the best gay neighborhood in the world, apparently, can be found right in the heart of the Midwest.
Chicago’s Boystown neighborhood was voted the world’s most “incomparable” gay neighborhood by the readers of Out Traveler, beating out runner-up The Mission in San Francisco.
The magazine notes that Boystown, technically East Lake View, was the nation’s first officially-designated gayborhood and adds that it has “everything you could want: bars, clubs, restaurants, architecture, walkability, its own El stop” and, very shortly, marriage equality.
Other nominees Chicago topped in the category, according to DNAinfo Chicago, were Hollywood’s Boystown, Madrid’s Chueca and Barcelona’s Eixample.
