Burlington is a small city in the state of Vermont with a modest but friendly gay scene
An Accepting Community
Burlington is a very welcoming and accepting place for LGBTQ people. Pride flags fly all over downtown, and instances of overt discrimination seem rare. Even more conservative Vermonters typically have a "live and let live" attitude.
A Small But Thriving Community
Despite the lack of LGBTQ-specific nightlife, many describe a vibrant queer community in Burlington. The city attracts gays and lesbians from across Vermont. While the dating pool is smaller than in bigger cities, the community is tight-knit. There are always queer events happening for those in the know, although the scene can be somewhat cliquey and hard to break into at first. But overall Burlington offers a fun, open, and lively environment for LGBTQ people.
