Welcome to Phoenix

Greater Phoenix’s fusion of natural splendor and metropolitan verve sets it apart from a lot of big cities. With a very active gay community, LGBT Phoenix is marked by LGBT-friendly businesses and entertainment that can be found throughout the Phoenix area. You can also plan your trip around some of the nationally-recognized LGBT events that happen annually in Phoenix, including Pride, the Rainbows Festival, or the Road Runner Regional Rodeo.

Where to Stay

From the most sophisticated resorts, to stylish boutique hotels, Greater Phoenix has plenty to offer when it comes to accommodations. Stay at the TAG Approved®* Arizona Biltmore & Spa, which overlooks Piestawa Peak and was a favorite of Marilyn Monroe. Or, if you’re looking for a more urban adventure, The Clarendon has a great atmosphere and is often the host of Pride after parties.
