Gay Providence

Providence was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, who believed in tolerance, liberty and free will. That spirit is alive today in bustling, dynamic Providence. Home to seven colleges and universities, the city boasts an eclectic arts scene, critically acclaimed restaurants and a youthful energy.

There is no "gay-borhood" in Providence. Members of the gay and lesbian community can be found throughout the city's many neighborhoods. From Federal Hill - Providence's famed Little Italy - to the funky cool of the East Side, the city offers plenty to see and do.

Don't miss RI PrideFest and the Illuminated Night Parade on June 20, 2015. This celebration of the city's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered communities features entertainment, a vendor marketplace, a beer, wine and spirits garden, and more. The day is capped off with the spectacular Illuminated Night Parade, the only one of its kind in the nation.
